Yesterday Shawn and Alexander headed to Hersheypark for Wildcat's Revenge Media Day. Thanks to both Shawn and Alexander for taking the time out of their busy schedules to cover this event, and a HUGE thanks as always to Hersheypark for including us in their media day invitation. It's never lost on us what a privilege it is to be included in such things.
We've got lots to show you, so let's get right into it. We have lots of pics from Shawn but also lots of video and other footage provided by Hersheypark!
Let's check out some ride information first!
Wildcat’s Revenge, the first-ever hybrid coaster at Hersheypark, opens to the public today, June 2. The hybrid's highly-anticipated debut comes 100 years after the original Wild Cat coaster opened at the Park in 1923.
Wildcat’s Revenge combines the best of wood and steel by adding a new steel track with unique elements to the wooden framework for a one-of-a-kind thrilling ride experience found only at Hersheypark.
The new hybrid is the 15th coaster at Pennsylvania’s largest amusement park, which is now home to the most coasters in the Northeast.
HYBRID COASTER EXPERIENCE:
Let's get into some of the amazing pics and thoughts from Shawn and Alexander.
We got to ride it 4 times! We loved it! It’s a long ride and balances the extreme airtime RMC does with more positive G's. The ride also features some unexpected laterals in the mix.
Even though it was media day for a new RMC, no day at Hersheypark is complete without some rides on some of their amazing coasters.
And finally, what's coaster riding without some awesome themed food to go along with it. And even better, Hersheypark themed food! Check out all of this awesome looking stuff!
