Hersheypark announces two new water rides for 2018: VIDEO


Hersheypark announced plans for two new family thrill attractions for The Boardwalk At Hersheypark water park, slated to debut Memorial Day weekend of 2018.

Breakers Edge Water Coaster will be the world’s first HydroMAGNETIC water coaster with flying saucer turns to rocket riders through splash-filled hills. The four-person inline raft will give families a bobsled ride feeling as gravity drops and smooth Linear Induction Motors (LIMs) power guests up and down hills and turns. This water coaster has an estimated hourly ride capacity of 600 guests and a ride time of about one minute.

Whitecap Racer will be the world’s longest mat racer and will take guests 70 feet high as they race to the finish in six side-by-side tunnels to the bottom. Each rider speeds through two tight 360-degree loops, while open racing lanes with low separator lanes allow racers to see and hear each other as they challenge each other using a slider timing system.

ProSlide Technology Inc. is the manufacturer of both attractions. Both rides are family-friendly and have a height requirement of a Reese’s category and up (42” and up).
