Hershey Park Happy

I took the day off today to go to Hershey Park. My husband isn't much for roller coasters but I was able to get him to ride the newest one, Fahrenheit. After a 30 minute wait, which isn't too bad for a new ride, I was not disappointed. I think it was the most thrilling coaster I had ever been on. It has a 97 degree drop which I read is currently the steepest in the US. This was followed by a series of rolls and inverted loops all of which you travel at 58 miles per hour (felt like 200 to me).

The best part of the day however, was taking our daughter around and seeing her enjoy all the kiddie rides. The carousel is my favorite and for the first time she was big enough for us to ride side by side without me holding onto her.

Here is a picture I took that I really like. We were up really high on a ferris wheel, above the new water park and a wooden coaster. Storm clouds threatening in the sky. You can see the twin smoke towers that read "Hershey" at the factory in the distance.
