As the 2003 season ends at Hersheypark, PA, park officials have tallied the votes for their proposed 2004 attraction; a 150'/90 degree/shuttle coaster with inversions! and are ready to announce the name.
I have already added the new page to TPI's Hersheypark listing: New 2004 Attraction!
What Will It Be?
The votes have already been tallied. Visit the site (which includes two computer generated videos of the ride in operation) and leave your opinions.

From AnonymousI think "Steel Stampede" sounds cool. I imagine the sound the ride will make as it progresses as it twists through three other rides in the park. Track has been arriving all month I saw pictures on another website.

Still no name :-(
From Anonymous"Well, the votes are in, the name's been trademarked, and the logo's been designed."

Hershey plans to announce the new coaster's name "after sundown" on November 5th, 2003 ... But, only to those registered for their "sweet mail." More construction photos have been added!
From Carey Lynn HoltsclawI thought they already deided it was going to have "stampede" in it. Or atleast that's what the marketing this past summer pointed to.

The only name to have been trademarked by Hershey. See, there's ways to find out everything...
From Robert NilesI was wondering see who'd take a moment to check out the trademark site. ('Cause I'm too tired and sick this week to do it!) Thanks, Ben.

From KANNi8L KL0wNYes, the new name is STORM RUNNER.

I have updated the Hershey page: Hersheypark. Storm Runner is located in the Pioneer Frontier section of the park.
Although the ride is not yet operational, I welcome all opinions.
