Hersheypark has updated their site with construction photos of their new Setpoint water coaster. The lift hill is complete, and work continues on the station.

Looks like a fun ride.

Did anyone else notice the speed stats near the bottom of the page? Instead of the usual mph, its says 30 feet per second! I guess that sounds better then listing a low mph.

I wonder if Setpoint has done something to help the capacity on this coaster in comparison to some of their others.

Excalibur Crew for 2002!

Do you only get one shot with the water bomb????

As with the Nickelodeon Super Saturator, you only get one shot with the bomb, unless you ride solo, then you get control over your and what would be your riding partner`s water bomb.

I`ve ridden Son of Beast 67 times!

you know how much fin this could be, all dya long have a contest with yoru friends at the groudn based canon and you try to hit them and so on you could work out a lot of games with this.

All at once the ghosts come back reeling you in now.

Looks like the whole "fun" of this will come from the interactive water part. The layout looks pretty mundane (i.e. boring).

Up the lift hill, "U" turn to the right, past the station again, "U" turn to the left, out run parallel to the station again, "U" turn to the right, run back parallel to the station one more time, and then another "U" turn to the right and back into the station.

From what I could see from the road and from the entrance to the pref.parking to the Arena (along the service entrance right behind Wildcat), it doesn't look to have the little twists that Super Saturator has (assuming that what is in the pic on Hershey's web site to show the ride in operation). Looks to be just U turns and straight track.
