Hersheypark releases drone footage of rollercoaster


HERSHEY- Watch drone footage of the addition of the top arch to the 140-foot lift hill of Wildcat’s Revenge, an all-new hybrid coaster that combines wood and steel for a one-of-a-kind thrilling ride experience found only at Hersheypark. 

Set to debut this summer, Wildcat’s Revenge will be the first hybrid coaster manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) in Pennsylvania and join an iconic collection of 15 coasters at Hersheypark – the most in the Northeast.

Hybrid coaster experience:  
The 2-minute and 36-second experience begins as riders sit in one of three custom-themed trains
Climb a 140-foot hill 
Plunge into an 82-degree drop 
Hit a maximum speed of 62 miles per hour along 3,510 feet of red track on a black steel and wood structure  
The pursuit continues as riders stalk their prey through four inversions, including the World’s Largest Underflip, an inversion that begins with an upward climb, followed by a counterclockwise 270° roll and a dive down towards the side.  

Currently open for spring weekends, Hersheypark will be open daily starting May 25 through Sept 4. Guests can enjoy three parks in one at Hersheypark with more than 70 rides, a water park open from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and a zoo included with admission.
