Hershey 2008 schedule

Thursday, February 7, 2008 10:53 PM
They cut friday off of Springtime in Hershey, which really screws up my schedule. I usually attend fri and sat, and take my god daughter one day. (this year is extra special, at Christmas in Hershey, we measured her and she is finally a peanutbutter cup!!!!!!! We can now do Comet and SDL!!!)

The good thing I saw on the schedule was they added back the 3 rd weekend to HP in the dark, which actually goes into November!

That's all fine and good, but why don't you provide a link if you are going to start a topic like this?

The Friday for Springtime in the Park was usually Good Friday. But Easter is early this year (March 23rd). So, since Sprintime in the Park is early April, it makes sense that they wouldn't have the Friday since no one will have off on that Friday, unlike Good Friday's in the past.

Guess they're not interested in a Friday evening session-- say 5 to 9?

I saw on Hersheys website, that Lightning Racer and Wild cat are not open for Springtime? I kinda thought they were open in years past? Is this new or am I mistaken?

IF i can get this to work, these photos were taken on Dec. 30 from over the construction wall at the Canyon River catering area which is where they had the reindeer at Candylane. Try this and when it doesn't work, let me know. http://www.kodakgallery.com/I.jsp?c=bf5ltka.ckq3ai3e&x=0&y=axt1q

Let's see if this link now works. *** Edited 2/18/2008 5:13:53 PM UTC by MrZero***

I was in the Hershey area on Friday and I took some pictures of the construction. They can be found here: http://www.coasterdom.com/2008/02/15/fahrenheit-construction-update-2-15/

It looks like they are working on the Norwegian Loop and the brake run areas of track. There is one crane on site and another in the parking lot. I'm assuming the parking lot crane is to move track pieces from the shipping trucks to the ground and then the ground to the site. So far it is a very impressive looking coaster.

I can't get the first gallery to work (album not found) maybe try using Tinyurl for such a long complex url? Thanks for the pics though, and look forward to seeing the others.

Recently they have been, but a few years back they were closed for both Springtime and Halloween.

I don't know about anyone else, but LR in the cool fall air is one of my fav's in Halloween.

The lack of a line also adds to the greatness of it. Seriously I've never been on LR during the Halloween events when there was a line.

I have never been to Hershey:) but I think this is the year I make the trip. I have always wanter to ride Storm Runner, Great Bear, and of course Racer, but now with Fahrenheit going up I cannot skip this year. I think this is going to be one fun coaster. Maybe I am wrong, but I think there will be a lot of comparisons to Maverick, and I cant wait for the discussions.

I really don't think there are many comparisons to make with Maverick. It has a beyond vertical drop, the same maker, and has some tight turns, other then that, what does it have in common?

I agree that it looks like a fun ride, but Maverick would not be a ride that I would compare it to.

You don't think there are many comparisons...and then you mention the past vertical drops, same manufacturer, and tight turns. Not to mention they both have short trains and are (relatively) small sitdown looping coasters. Then add the fact that they are both in parks and geographic areas wildly popular with coaster fans and are both being built only a couple years apart and I think the comparisons are going to be close to inevitable.
