Yes, we're having an event at Hersheypark, tentatively called "Chocolate Buzz," on June 2, 2007.
ERT will be on Lightning Racer and Storm Runner, after the park closes, from 10:30 to 11:30pm.
There will NOT be any on-site registration. The time on this is a little tight, and I apologize for that. I strongly suggest getting the flyer printed and sent as soon as possible once it is posted. I'm hoping to have the final pricing later today.
Tickets for admission and the meal will probably be less than or about the same as normal admission alone ($46 this year), unless they charge big money for the catering.
LOL, can't speak for Rita (or any coaster not on this continent, yet)...but I can say that of all the N. American hydraulic launch coasters, SR is far and away the best of the breed (keeping with the horse analogy). IMO, YMMV, etc.
Xcelerator is *slightly* better than TTD, alot better than Ka.
As far as the launch itself, the best one is for sale...cheap. Not hydraulic though...and the rest of the ride mostly blows chunks... *** Edited 3/29/2007 9:12:56 PM UTC by rollergator***
