Today was Hersheypark's 2017 attraction announcement, and as hinted about earlier the park will indeed add towering thrill rides, three to be exact, together to be known as Hershey Triple Tower.
The park is calling the addition the first "Choose-Your-Thrill Triple Tower in the US," since it offers three separate towers of varying heights and speeds.
“Hersheypark is well-known for providing guests with rides and attractions that the entire family can enjoy and this new ride is sure to deliver,” said Kevin Stumpf, General Manager Attractions & Entertainment. “We are happy to be adding this new attraction that will offer families the opportunity to choose their level of thrill and enjoy panoramic views of the Park.”
Both Double Shot towers will blast riders up to the top and then let them bounce back down on a cushion of air, and the Combo Tower is capable of being both a Space Shot with upward blast and also a Turbo Drop free-fall.
Hersheypark plans to have the expansion open for their Spring season.
