Nice report, it is weird to see Comet Hollow torn apart like that.

The worst part about Christmas Candylane is seeing all the coasters there not operating :(

Especially with how nice the weather is, they could be.

Skyrush will really round out Hershey, my only two trips there it felt like it was missing that one HUGE coaster that really stands out. I mean, I enjoyed Great Bear, Fahrenheit, and Storm Runner, but they need that one really tall ride that makes the skyline stand out. Can't wait to make a trip out this Summer to ride it.

Yeah there is no reason they can't have a few coasters open (for years I have been saying to open Comet, SDL and Trailblazer) with a disclaimer saying if it is too cold, they won't run them. Great Adventure ran everything on closing day even with it in the low 30's the last hour the park was open and in the low 40's earlier in the day. I mean I understand if it is 20 degrees out and windy but if it is sunny or at night with little to no wind and in the 30's or 40's, they should be able to run.

And I know it's a smaller coaster (not much smaller than Trailblazer though) but Vapor Trail at Sesame Place is running for their holiday event.

All three lift hill towers are up. The track should be going up on the lift shortly.

I am more excited about Skyrush than any other coaster this year. It just looks incredible. And I completely agree with you Christian. I honestly feel that with the addition of Skyrush, not only will it add the big coaster it was missing, but it will truly make Hershey the most well rounded park in the area. (I already feel it is, but Skyrush will put it over the top.)

Green Lantern: a suitable replacement, but will never be the same. RIP GASM.
