Sooper Dooper Looper was my 2nd looping coaster. My 1st looping was the Loch Ness Monster at Busch Gardens. One of my strange childhood memories is losing one of my baby teeth while going down the drop on the Coal Cracker flume ride.

Hershey Park is easily in my top 5 parks (considering WDW and Universal as 1 park each):

1) WDW
2) Busch Gardens Williamsburg
3) Universal Orlando
4) Hershey Park
5) Disneyland/Cali Adventure

There's a possibility I may be down for a Hershey meet. It's been years since I've been to Hershey Park. It's just a few hour drive out the turnpike, but I'd probably do an overnight in Hershey if I could make it.

you really should go, we really have a good time, wander around, see some shows, watch me scream while riding the Pirate (no comment DC!!) I think we've either closed the park or come pretty darn close to it

Isn't the new(er) Troegs brewery located pretty close to Hershey Park? One more reason I may need to travel out that way

Speaking of meets ... anymore zeroing in on the Oct WDW meet? Were we looking at around 10/19-10/20 or 10/26-10/27 timeframe? Let me know if there's a lockdown for scheduling ...

It seemed weird enough not having you there in October at WDW.....

Never worry about keeping up. Anything important as far as meets go, I try to keep the first post updated. Beyond that.... It's totally acceptable (and almost expected at times) that people won't be able to keep up, or will skip a couple pages of conversation if we got into another chatty period. With our conversational ADD, it all works out in the end.

Maybe I can actually make the Hershey meet this year... But unless the meet is in September before F&W, I won't be able to make it.
back! Hope you'd be able to make it.

I believe that AHoff, our resident bicycle rider/runner is doing that. He mentioned it. I am not sure about anyone else. . .not me, that is for sure.
Heh... Thankfully the venue issue is taken car of on our side. The church was easy and kinda a no-brainer since it's her church.... and the reception location we kinda lucked into since her dad is retired military. I'm not even sure if Rachel even bothered to visit multiple venues due to the deal they got on the one we chose.

It's a lot of fun! Definitely worth experiencing at least once.

I've never been on the Super Dooper Looper. TBH.... I'm not even sure if I'd fit or not. The ole' mine train style coaster (name escapes me now) I know I can't even ride because i literally do not fit in the ride.

the Skyrush, the coaster they installed last year... is freakin awesome though!

And the food isn't too bad either. And most amazingly, Hershey discovered a way to build an amusement park uphill....both ways!

Dunno. Darcy.... Decide on a date yet?




Ok, since people seem interested in the Hershey park meet, go ahead and mark Saturday, June 29th on your calendars. That is the day of my company picnic at the park, and therefor the day i can get the discounted tickets for. I haven't gotten pricing yet, but normally I can get the discounted tickets for around the $37 range for a one-day ticket good that day. Normal gate price is $58 this year (there will be coupons available locally though closer to the summer season). Once I get information from work regarding the discounted tickets, I'll let everyone know the costs and deadline to let me know so I can order the tickets.

For those with kids, Feel free to bring them too if you want. I can discounted kids tickets as well (cheaper than adult tickets), so just ask if interested. I know Rachel and I will most likely be bringing Gus with us. Be aware though that sometimes the SSC, in person, can easily be a solid PG13 rating in our conversations.
