This is no doubt the biggest expansion in their history.



While I haven't been to this park since the year Storm Runner first opened, this announcement is making me think about coming back. So despite on all the other new attractions they have added over the past several years, I have refused to revisit due to how overrated I think the whole place is.  Well that is until now.  The B&M hyper, AND fountain is whats getting me all excited to come back!

I figured you'd get a kick out of the Hershey Kiss fountain.

I'm surprised that no one seem to be saying Giga. seems every CF park coaster to be build will be a giga but Hershey will add a second Hyper coaster?  Why it is no one is even toying with the idea of a Giga over a hyper.

I like the shopping area expansion. I say expansion hoping g it is an expansion I really like the main street shopping and dinning area they have now So I hope this isn't replacing that.

I think the main reason why CF parks are getting picked on with the Giga rumor is because they are the only parks in the world to have them other than Nagashima Spaland in Japan.  Plus, Kings Island has yet to have the B&M hyper and giga combo like with Carowinds and Canadas Wonderland.  Though I have no idea where the Giga dive rumor even came from.   Maybe that will be Hersheys next major coaster project.😆

Well some people must have a problem with Skyrushs restraints.   At least this upcoming hyper will have much more accommodating restraints.  And who knows, this may end up being the new best ranked ride in the park.

It's possible we won't know till it opens and we start getting reviews. It sounds promising.

Looks promising. I will admit the Chocolate Brown track puts a smile on my face

Ok.  Cause there are some people out there, like Robb Alvey, who thinks this coaster is poop simply because its B&M. And we all know chocolate isn't the only thing that's brown.

Well that's his opinion. But when one is bias that opinion I diminished.  We can only speculate though the above video is a good guess.   but video don't tell the whole story. One has to experience an attraction to get its full impact.

Sadly, all of his opinions are bias.  At least as far as I am concern.  But it can be even sadder when some people think your opinion is bias when there the ones stuck in their own bias, but I digress.

Yeah I am awfully curious how this ride will compare to Mako.
