    Hersheypark: sidewinder gets stuck in the cobra roll

    Sidewinder got stuck in the cobra roll with passengers on it. It was cool to see the matinence staff spring to action but they got every one off.

    It also got stuck on the second lift when I was there on Saturday. Alex and I were about to get on when it happened then we never made it back there to ride it once it eventually got going. Hope the heat isn't the issue with this.

    Did it get stuck in the dip of the Cobra roll or inverted on one of the half loops?

    Well that makes me NOT want to ride it during the summer time. What in the world would I do if it got stuck in the loop or something Like that?? Shocked

    I just hope this doesn't put it one step closer to removal...

    Love Sidewinder! Sounds like it wasn't too big of a deal, and HP's staff acted quick to evactuate. Wonder if it was just because of the extreme heat.

    I always worry that SW and/or DGRR could be the next things removed for another expansion of the poorly planned waterpark....but really hope they go into the parking lot or maybee relocate the Wild Mouse elsewhere in the park/Midway Tent location first.

    The old parts of Pioneer are my favorite areas left in the park.

    ^ They probably won't remove Sidewinder for a long time since they just invested in those new trains for it.

    It's not the first time Sidewinder has gotten stuck in the cobra rolll...that's one of many reasons why they have a platform there, because they know it can get stuck there.

    Actualy I've often noticed quite the oppisite when a ride is on the block....parks will often fix them up to make it a more attractive sale.

    This is the first time Hershey's boomerang got stuck. The reason Hershey put the catwalk in is because the boomerang at Morey's Piers got stuck there.

    It is Dan K. from Facebook. But yea it was more then likely the heat that caused it to get jammed up. Also I highly an I mean Highly doubt SW will come out anytime soon. An DGRR will not be going anywhere.
