    The Keystone Thrills Ultimate Park Guide Hersheypark In The Dark Edition

    Post  Ccron10 on Tue Aug 25, 2009 9:23 pm

    Let me introduce you to a new feature for Keystone Thrills: The Keystone Thrills Ultimate Guide for Pennsylvania Theme Parks. This is possibly the biggest field guide for each of the state's parks such as Hersheypark, Knoebels, and more. Each guide will feature tips, important info, and much more on hotels near the park, rides, shows, food, souvenirs and much more for each park.

    So what the first guide to be released? How about the Hersheypark In the Dark edition since October is just around the corner.

    Here are some important symbols to looks for in these guides:

    These feature very imporatant info that sometimes if you don't follow this, you might not enjoy yourself!


    It's always interesting to learn new things and that's what you'll do at these points.


    The ride rating decides how intense each ride is and who can ride it.
    Rating 1: Kiddie Ride (for the kids)
    Rating 2: Family Ride (for all ages)
    Rating 3: Low Thrill Ride (a may in some cases be intense)
    Rating 4: Mid Thrill Ride (most likely intense in some times)
    Rating 5: High Thrill Ride (an intense ride)


    Different from the ride rating, this measures the quality of the ride with factors such as atmosphere, excitement, thrill, and roughness being a factor. This rating goes from 1 to 10 with 10 being the best ride and 1 being the worst.


    Want to save some money? Listen to these tips!


    Hate rough rides that jerk you around and beat you up? This symbol will warn you ahead of time and explain the preformance of the ride.

    These guides will be delivered in sections. The first part is the rides.

    RIDES
    FOUNDERS CIRCLE

    NIGHT MARES

    Also known as the Carousel. Ride on your own horse while listening to halloween music out of the ride's band organ. If you are more of a thrill-seeker, you can skip this ride.

    SCREECHING SCRAMBLER

    While it maybe a little intense for smaller children, the Scrambler is a decent ride for older families.

    ALIEN ORBITER

    Pilot your own starship and control it's height. This can be a ride for the entire family and is passenger-operated.

    This ride has been at Hersheypark since the 1960's and was first callled the Roto Jet.

    CASPER'S COPTERS

    A circluar ride where kids control the height of their helicopters.

    HOWLING HIMALAYA
    A circluar alpine-themed ride where kids ride over small hills.

    SPACE PUMPKINS
    Kids pilot small space ships on a small rotating platform.

    TRICKY TRACKS
    A small train ride for kids only. (Parents can ride with their children).

    BALLOON FRIGHT
    Kids get to ride in a ballon around in a circle lifting slightly off the ground.

    This ride was moved more times than any other ride at Hersheypark (4 times)!

    GHOST CARAVAN
    Kids ride in circles in their favorite vehicle.

    SPOOKY-O-SARUS
    Kids travel in circles in their own dinosaur.
    ___________________
    COMET HOLLOW
    ICHABOD'S COASTER TRAIN (Comet)

    Concidered the highlight of Comet Hollow, the Comet is the oldest wooden coaster in Hersheypark. Riders climb close to a 85 foot lift hill and go over many hills, turns, and dives.
    WAIT TIME: Expect long lines.

    SOOPERBOOPERLOOPER (sooperdooperlooper)

    Riders climb a nearly 70 foot lift hill and through a 57 foot tall loop.

    The Sooperdooperlooper was the first looping coaster on the Eastcoast.
    WAIT TIME: Don't expect a long wait for this coaster.

    WITCH'S BREW

    While the Tilt-A-Whirl isn't the most intense ride, it still is not recomended for children. This ride can be very forceful with uncontrolable spinning.

    SWINGS OF SALEM

    The Wave Swinger is a great ride if you love feeling the breeze, the carnival lights, and feeling relaxed.


    More soon.

    Love this concept! Hope to see it used more around here. I hope as more people join it will become very beneficial, especially to out-of-staters.

    I like the way you put a few different things in there besides just a rating. Like HPCrazy said, it would be beneficial to others who join and want to know about certain parks and rides.
