Built in 1946 by Philadelphia Toboggan Co., it was remodeled in 1978. It's 'L' spaped out-and-back/figure eight features a tight 98' initial plunge, lots of air time and a few quick turns. Top speed is 50mph with a 3360' track length.

I first rode this back in the 70s. A great classic wooden coaster.

This is my favorite at Hershey and one of my favorites of all time! This is one of the few coasters that still give me stomach butterflies not just on the 1st but the 2nd hill also! It's amazingly smooth for a woodie all-around awesomeness.

Great classic wood coaster. It was my 6 years old first wood coaster and he loved it. Very nice.
Joe Schwartz
A great oldie. A long ride with plenty of air time. A long ride. Very rickity. Not very high or fast just a solid old coaster.

6/10. This is an old wooden coaster. It was good for what it was, but it was not very thrilling and very rough. It's certainly worth riding if you like wooden coasters though.

AMAZING was all I could say after rideing this. it was the smoothest wooden coaster at the park. From the Top of the hill all the way to the break-run it's enjoyable and smooth!!!
