Memorial Day weekend 2018 at Hersheypark promises to be splash-tastic!

The Hershey amusement park recently announced plans for two new family thrill attractions for The Boardwalk At Hersheypark water park – Breakers Edge Water Coaster and Whitecap Racer.

Breakers Edge Water Coaster will be the park’s 4th coaster, a HydroMAGNETIC water coaster with flying saucer turns. The four-person inline raft promises a bobsled ride feeling with gravity drops and turns.

Hersheypark says Whitecap Racer will be the world’s longest mat racer, first taking guests 70 feet high before they race to the finish in six side-by-side tunnels to the bottom. Riders will speed through two 360-degree loops, while open racing lanes with low separator lanes allow racers to see and hear each other.

The new attractions will be located between Shoreline Sprayground attraction and Intercoastal Waterway lazy river.
