Hersheypark rated best in North America :D

I know Hershey isn't a favorite among TPI patrons but I heard this on my local news broadcast which made me giggle.

The results are in - Hersheypark is the favorite amusement park in North America!

The central Pennsylvania amusement park is the winner of the 2019 Coaster101.com Park Mania poll. Hersheypark beat Ohio's Cedar Point in the finals.

The contest started with 68 amusement parks. Hersheypark beat Dorney Park, Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens to get to the finals. More than 65,000 votes were cast in the online poll, according to Coaster101.com.

Hersheypark has a dozen roller coasters. The highest, fastest and longest coaster is Skyrush, which was introduced in 2012. And in 2020, the park will open a new 23-acre addition - Chocolatetown. Chocolatetown will also feature a new roller coaster.

Coaster101.com - Who??? I don't think I've ever seen those guys at any of the media events I've covered.

I never heard of them either but it made our local news. It took the power of an obscure website for Hershey to win the top honor! lol

Oh! Hershey is my home park and I love it dearly and always have...but there's NO way it beat out Cedar Point.

FWIW, in Disney code, that would mean "Coaster Not Operating."

That poll seems to heavily favor coaster parks, but even still there's no way Hersheypark beating Cedar Point is a popular opinion. Hersheypark is a great park, and is absolutely in the top tier of North American thrill parks...but I'd take at least two of the parks it beat over it.
