Christian, I agree with you, I always had fun on the Canyon River Rapids, with my daughter or grandson. I was sad to see it go. I remember in years past, early morning rides in May and June, BURRRRR, talk about goosebumps. I was at Hershey last year to see the Boardwalk section and Zachary loved it, but it was crowded. I have not been back this year yet, I'd like to see what the new Wave pool and Lazy river look like up close.
