The main thing I wanted to report on is Wildcat's new trains. What a difference! In my opinion, the ride has been improved immensely from the past few seasons. The trains deliver a smoother, more comfortable ride without taking away from the speed or air time. I highly suggest that anyone who was put off by this ride give it a second chance. You won't be disappointed.
I shouldn't really complain about the lines because we didn't really wait more than 20 minutes for anything. The longest wait we had was probably for the Claw, only because people don't understand what a larger seat is. I'm 6'3" and always head right for an end and fit easily. The only other thing that bothered me a bit was the train stacking on Great Bear. It seems like it takes forever for the gates to open once a train arrives, and then each harness is checked twice before dispatch. The stacking was especially evident when waiting for the front, but still wasn't as bad as it could have been because of the lack of people.
Everything else was running great all day. Hersheypark has gone from being one of my favorite local parks to being one of my favorite parks anywhere in the past few years. The day was a great start to my season.
Hershey is one of the best parks that I've been to. I've been going since I was 4, and it's one of my favorite parks, period. As far as the theme park choices for the Baltimore/DC area, HP & BGE have the market cornered in the quality department.
