On Wednesday June 27th, 2012 we headed back to Hersheypark for a second. We arrived at the park again, about 9:15, before the park opened up. We waited to get in until approximately 9:50, until the gaits opened. When we entered the park, we headed straight to Skyrush again. We arrived at the Coaster at 10:00 am, and it already had a 45 minute wait. Of course, we waited online to ride the epic Intamin Mega Coaster.
After riding Skyrush it was about 10:45, and again we got a quick slushy and a pretzel. We then headed over to ride Storm Runner. It also had a long wait, as it was running on a one train operation. We waited about 45 minuets for the ride. After we rode the neighboring Coaster, 'Outback Steakhouse' Sidewinder. Sidewinder is a Vekoma Boomerang Coaster, and it received new trains for the 2011 season. The new trains made the rough Coaster an enjoyable re-rideable experience.
It was then about 1:00 pm, and we headed over to ride Lightning Racer. When we got there, it had no wait, and we were able to stay on the ride. We were able to stay on the Coaster for 2 hours straight, without getting off! Total, we got over 30 rides on the fantastic Wooden Coaster.
After our marathon on Lightning Racer, we were hungry for lunch. We decided to head over to the Hershey Lodge to check out the beautiful hotel. At the hotel, there is a fantastic restaurant called the Bears Den. It is a highly themed sports restaurant with dozens of televisions, themed to the Hershey Bears Hockey team. If you are ever in Hershey, stop by the Hershey Lodge quick to look around the beautiful hotel, and to eat at the Bears Den.
After eating, we arrived back at the park around 5:00 pm. We were very hot, and decided to rode the huge flume ride, Tidal Force. After riding it, we were all soaking wet. We then meet up quickly with our friends over at All-American Thrills, in front of Fahrenheit. After, we decided to ride Fahrenheit again. The wait was approximately an hour wait, but it was well worth the wait.
After riding Fahrenheit, it was about 7:00 pm, and we headed over to ride the Kissing Tower. After getting a great view of the park, we rode the Great Bear. It had about a 20 minute wait. Following, we rode the classic log flume, the Coal Cracker a few times. We were lucky as the great flume ride had hardly no wait time.
We then went to the Hollow section of the park. We rode the classic SooperDooperLooper a few times, and then we wanted to ride Skyrush at night. The wait time was about 45 minuets, and it was worth the wait.
The time was about 9:15, and we had less than an hour in the park. For our last ride at Hersheypark, we rode Storm Runner again. It had a 45 minute wait, and we got off the ride at 10:00 pm, when the park closed.
That day we experienced another great, fun day at Hersheypark. Hersheypark is truly one of the best amusement parks, and everyone should go to the park at least once. Hershey offers a magical expiernece for everyone. They offer world class Roller Coasters and even fun for the little ones. If you have never gone to Hersheypark, plan your trip today!
