What happened to Turbulence?

Monday, December 6, 2004 10:17 PM
I was on the Hersheypark website today and couldn't find the link to the Turbulence stuff. Has anybody been in Hersheypark lately? Have they torn down GIANT WHEEL yet? Pictures and/or info are appreciated. *** Edited 12/7/2004 3:20:13 AM UTC by Coasterjosh***

Wow. That's weird... It's usually right on the front page of the site. I even clicked rides, and it showed Storm Runner's announcements.
I've often wondered from time to time, how to write good poetry- and make it all... Work.

I just used the search function on Hershey's website and Turbulence produced no results. Wierd.

Giant Wheel is gone, though I can't remember where I saw the pics. There were pics on one of the sites of its dismanteling...

If you can't stand the heights, get out of the line.

Wouldn't it be a little late to decide to scrap a ride. Interactiverides had this on their site for months before hershey announced it saying that a north american park was getting it.

Who knows, maybe someone accidentally deleted *all* the files that involve Turbulence. Unlikely, but I don't think I've seen a park just "scrap" a ride after it's been announced and everything. Perhaps they're redesigning the website? Or renaming the ride? Who knows. The possibilities are endless...

ApolloAndy's avatar They'd leave the old stuff up then. It's not like you have to take it down to update it.

Yea, its odd that EVERY mention of it is gone from the site. Maybe they are just renaming it or something, because Interactive Rides still has it listed on their site in the press releases.

Call me crazy, but methinks someone missed this:

That's from the town of Hershey I think, the park's site was indeed Turbulence-free.

Maybe...(wild idea here) they didn't quite scrap it...perhaps they're going to change the plans and get the taller version (and more complex layout) of the ride. Just a thought...

Haha no I'm not giving Patrick the finger

No it's not. Go to www.hersheypa.com and see for yourself. It's the main page for the Hershey Entertainment and Resorts company. Why else do you think Dutch Wonderland gets its own spot on the front page? :)

Well, I emailed the park so we should either see it reappear on the website or get a reply within 48 hrs...

Anyone ever consider that it could be something as simple as some sort of technical issue with the site that forced them to revert to a pre-Turbulence version temporarily?
