It is a Intamin hybrid coaster like maverick. It has a beyond vertical drop and multiple inversions.

I live about 2 1/2 hours away from Hershey, and I've been there once. Me and my family drove by Hershey last month, and I wanted to see how much sucsess they had so far.
It looks AWESOME!!! The best part will either be the drop or the lift hill, and maybe even the pretzel-roll-thingy. I don't really expect it to be better than stormrunner, because it is only 121 ft. high and is only at 97% for about 0.001 of a second. I know the drop will be awesome, but not as good as stormrunner's.
The steepest drops I've been on so far are all 90%:

This ride also has the first norweigen loop (IDk if i spelt it right)in America. It is the pretzel like loop you mentioned Eli.
