Hey guys im back from a vacation went to Herseypark i shall give reviews starting NOW!

Great Bear: 8/10 A great ride full of fun
very short but a little piece of Montu was put into it.

Farenheight: (Don"t be a grammar nazi) 10/10

Amazing Roller Coaster the hype of the coaster is matched perfectly, twists, turns, everything perfect.

Lightning Racers: 9/10 Better than Gwazi By far
a great wood duel lighting side was full of down to the ground runs, while thunder was full of air time epicosity.

Wildcat: 1/10 Headache Inducing Pain if this was smoother id say it"d be the best wood coaster ever.

Comet: 10/10 Wow an amazing wood coaster considering that it was made in the 1940s Amazing ride i suggest it for all wooden fans.


Superduperlooper: 6/10 Great coaster for the family its smooth and benefits are all my bros with glasses simple pressure on the loop will keep your glasses safe.

Storm Runner: 6/10 Even if its the first launch with a inversion its bad for only one reason it hurts you are instructed to keep your head back yet its hard to god id love it if it Wouldn't hurt me so :(

Sidewinder: 6/10 fun ride not much just a boomerang ride.

And Finally for the final coaster

Skyrush: 10/10 Great ride restraints hurt but if u loosen it the ride will be amazing great air nice giga ;)


Park Overall was great atmosphere was awesome and the park tidy and clean ;)

Great Bear is one of the worst B&M inverts in the world. While it has a unique layout, there's really not much to it, and it's pretty slow and relatively forceless. Talon at Dorney Park---just 90 minutes east of Hershey, is a far superior invert. Great Bear can't even hold a candle to Alpengeist, Montu, Raptor, or Afterburn, let alone all of the Batman clones.

If you thought Wildcat was rough, you should have ridden it before they replaced the PTC trains with Milennium Fliers. I think the new trains and retracking that was done a few years ago made the coaster far more tolerable, but would agree that it's still a bit rough--not nearly as rough as Gwazi, Beast, or Mean Streak.

Skyrush is not a giga BTW. The lift hill is only 200 feet, barely making it a hypercoaster.

I love me some Lightning Racer. I always try to close it down with a marathon at night as the park closes, and I'm usually successful.

At night, it's mind-blowingly good.

I have been going to Hershey for a long time, so i put if i agreed or disagreed with the review :)


Great Bear: 8/10- agree

Farenheight: 10/10- ABSOLUTELY agree

Lightning Racers: 9/10 agree

Wildcat: 1/10- No kidding. Still fun, but a word of advice, don't ride it twice

Comet: 10/10- Agreed.


Superduperlooper: 6/10 Ahhh... the superduperlooper... I disagree, but it is only because i have a back story with that coaster...

Storm Runner: 6/10- ABSOLUTELY disagree. This was my first hypercoaster. But, everyone has different opinions

Sidewinder: 6/10- disagree. I'd say at least an 8/10, as long as you don't watch it in your wait. My family went on an empty day with no lines and had no clue what was going to happen...

Skyrush: 10/10-agreed, but they changed the restraints right?

Differences of opinion are what make coaster reviews and comparisons interesting. I agree 100% about Skyrush but disagree about Fahrenheit and Storm Runner. In my opinion, Storm Runner is the better of the two rides, and I never felt any discomfort during the launch. I would rate Storm Runner as 9/10 and Fahrenheit 7/10. Also, I actually thought that Lightning Racer was not quite as good as Gwazi.

Bobbie Farenheight is one of those coasters that as somebody has only been to Florida parks and Georgia parks its thrilling to have a different coaster.

Manny, well I can appreciate that. Going up the lift hill while completely vertical is indeed different. The only other time I encountered a similar situation was on Mystery Mine at Dollywood - and I've been to parks in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Indiana, Virginia, Ohio, Massachusetts, Michigan, Florida, Tennessee and Texas.
