Today, Hersheypark Amusement Park in Hershey, PA, announced that two new family thrill attractions for The Boardwalk At Hersheypark water park will debut in 2018. The new attractions are Breakers Edge Water Coaster and Whitecap Racer!! How exciting is that?
Breakers Edge Water Coaster will be the world’s first HydroMAGNETIC water coaster! Coming in as the 14th coaster at Hersheypark, this ride will feature not only splash-filled hills, but flying saucer turns. Guests will be able to ride the coaster on a four-person raft for a bobsled-like experience. The ride time is about one minute.
Then get ready for the world’s longest mat racer… Whitecap Racer! This attraction will take guests 70 feet high as they race to the bottom through side by side tunnels. Riders will speed through two tight 360 degree loops!
Both of the new attractions will be located between Shoreline Sprayground attraction and Intercoastal Waterway lazy river in The Boardwalk at Hersheypark, They are scheduled to debut Memorial Day weekend of 2018.
According to the a recent press release, Kevin Stumpf, General Manager Attractions & Entertainment of Hershey Entertainment & Resorts stated, “We are very excited to announce not one, but two new attractions for 2018 to The Boardwalk At Hersheypark. Our guests always ask for coasters, water and family experiences…these attractions will deliver on all three.”
Both rides are family-friendly and have a height requirement of a Reese’s category and up (42” and up).
In honor of celebrating the new attractions, Hersheypark certainly has a sweet treat for Season Pass holders! If you hold a Season Pass, you may purchase “bring a friend for $20.18 tickets” from Ticketing Services available for use through September 24, 2017.
