Hershey Park Pennsylvania Summer 2012

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Right out of the gate, it goes straight up at 26 feet per second along its bright yellow track. It needs just a few seconds to reach a dizzying height of 200 feet above the ground. Sounds exciting isn't it?

Thats the Skyrush coaster at Hershey Park, just opened this year. After a late night at the bar, we spontaneously decided to go to Hershey Park 6 hours later in Sat early morning. It was a 4 hour car ride. {Can you say FUN!!?}

We were all pretty excited about going especially I had never been there. We left Sat morning figuring we could beat the traffic, but it proves us wrong! We arrived around 11 a.m. and the traffic was crazy. O.o"

After we paid the $12 parking fees and parked the car, we head to the park gates....The day was super hot and the park was crowded. But that's Sat in summer, we're not surprised.
As we walked around to the rides they seem like regular rides you'd find at a carnival. I was expecting Hershey themed rides. Needless to say we don't really care, we all here for the roller coasters..

We couldn't wait to go to the Broadwalk and Minetown to test out all the coaster. Skyrush was our first stop, it was hell of a crazy ride, it was totally worth the and hour and half wait. Along the road, we ride the lightning, wildcat, thunder and some others.. I would said Thunder was my favorite.

After we left the park we walked over to Chocolate World. Now that's Vic kind of place! First you see the iconic factory chimneys. Then there's the Sweetest Place on Earth!! Also I need to mentioned this, Christmas store inside the park! Although Winter still months ahead of us, but over here, we felt the spirit of the holiday! Except the heat of course.
