Looks great! :)
Other than that little detail, it looks really neat. As long as the Boardwalk doesn't take over the park, that is...
I also recognize that Hershey has the need and the right to expand, and their space is limited. But I've always thought that half of Hersheypark is absolutely gorgeous, and the other half not so much. It's odd that Midway America and Boardwalk were developed with the idea of bringing charm and nostalgia back to the park and wound up looking just a step this side of a state fair midway.
I'm not much for raft rides as a rule, but I thought the one at Hersheypark was a good one. I don't know how long raft rides are expected to last before they become a pest, or if maybe ridership was down and it's time to let it go. But with it will go whats left of any mature trees and natural landscaping in that area for a big ole cement pond.
It must be worth it to them, though. I imagine insurance and risk involved with a wave pool is much higher than with a raft ride.
Having said all this, I'm not sure what I would've done to expand Hersheypark and add water were I the one in charge.
Whoops. Did I say charm?
As it is now, you can hardly see CRR with all of the mature trees around it, at least the front part of it. They will all soon be gone for cement and water.
As long as the Boardwalk doesn't take over the park, that is...
Say what you want... but I personally believe all of Midway America (including Wildcat and Lightning Racer) could eventually be taken over by the water attractions.
I thought the same until I saw it but it really is a perfect fit for the park. Power to them!
That is salt on the wound
