I honestly can't wait to see what this area will become once its truly finished. There is so much room for development in this new area that there is no way this is just a 2020 project
What are these for?

I hope they use ALL of the 23 acres. Hersheypark is dying for more flat rides in my opinion.

Is it just me or does that hyper look extra lame? Here and there B&M have deviated from their formulaic hyper rut with certain elements on Shambhala, Mako, Fury and the Chinese hypers but Hersheypark's looks like the most plug and play hyper since Intimidator. Maybe it'll be better than it looks.

Looks like a solid addition to my local park! Hershey was in need of a good Bimmer hyper for a while. Skyrush is great, but not many people can handle it being one of the most intense rollercoasters on earth. The elements look great too with a nice transition after that ascending helix. Now the whole 6 car trains.. if that is true than would this be B&M's shortest hyper train?

This will have 7 cars per train. It was just the initial animation was off. It was since redone with the current 7 cars per train.

In the meantime, work on the lift hill has begun:

I really am not the biggest fan of that brown color. Like, I get what they were going for, but that hue doesn't exactly remind me of chocolate. :? Excited to see this go vertical, though. The layout is kind of like a slightly bigger Mako and I'm cool with that.
