Neat ride, but again Hershey is adding an attraction with capacity that I feel is inadequate for the size of the park. 800 pph is not much better than a wild mouse, and with Hershey's less-than-stellar ride operators, I doubt the ride will ever hit that. *** This post was edited by PhantomTails 9/27/2007 1:27:20 PM ***
^^Agreed, but the coaster looks great. I'm continually impressed with the unique attractions Hershey adds year after year. Capacity may not be exceptional, but few rides there ever have unbearable lines, at least when I've been there.

I'm also a bit baffled by all of these folks who are "dissapointed" based on what has been released so far. Disapointed by the ride itself or disapointed because it didn't live up to the expectations they created in their own minds? Personally, I am alot more excited about this than Hershey's last two coaster enteries. Okay... so my lack luster anticipation about Storm Runner was proven WRONG... but I still stick by my Ho Hum thoughts on Roller Soaker after it was announced... rode it once "for the count" and don't feel the need to ever have to do so again. And I'm certainly looking forward to this ALOT more than their illfated Turbulence (Frequent Faller).
But back to Farenheit... like others have said, the 800 or so pph (peeps per hour) capacity is the only thing that I question. But I agree... their operations are good (despite what the nay-sayers may think)... the only slow loading coaster really is Comet and that is because of the dreadful belt / restraint situation rather than the crew.... so it may not be that much of a problem after all.
If it is a problem... just go on HOT days when everyone is packing the BoardWalk and it shouldn't be too bad on the rides. (Hmmmmm... perhaps I sold the Board Walk short... I am not a water park person, but if it can keep the other lines down on the coasters, I say "BUILD MORE SLIDES!")

Will this ride stick with the Frontier theme? I can't really tell from what I see so far. If not, does this mean the park will start to not care so much about the themed areas? I love frontier themeing and I hope the new rides sticks with it.
