Adults and children will get a rush from this 'runaway' mine train. A steel track coaster with three awesome helixes. Designed by Arrow Development, Trailblazer features 1600' of track with speeds of 30 mph and was installed in 1974.

This ride isn't the biggest or the baddest; but's it's a whole lot of fun! The perfect roller coaster for any little coaster enthusiast, the Trailblazer is a Hersheypark Must, and shouldn't be missed. - Mike Brilhart

This is a great first coaster for kids. They will love it. The helix at the end is a lot of fun. - Jeff K

I know it's a family coaster but isn't a family coaster supposed to have some sort of force to it - Bob Miller

Bad, bad, bad. The ride was jerky and unpleasantly slow, and the latter condition seemed to amplify the former. Waited forever each time we rode, probably five times over the span of 10 years, because of one-train operation. If you don't have smaller riders who can't ride the larger coasters, don't waste your time here. - Jamie Bennish

GREAT COASTER TO SIGHT-SEE! You can look around while riding and watch the bends in the earth underneath you! - Dakota S

This is a great first/kids coaster. Smooth and fast, but very short. Still a lot of fun! - Vicky Frey
