 Review of Canyon River Rapids @ Hersheypark
0 Rating Posted by: Park on 5/10/2006 5:56:00 PM
This is a ride I have rode all my life and have never been let down. I hate wating in line so I wait till about 8:00pm to ride. It is a lot of fun. I love the water falls and seeing who will get it the most!! haha!!

I was up to Hersheypark on Sunday and saw that Canyon River Rapids is being torn down as I type this and should be gone by this weekend. Sad sad. RIP

Yeah, sad. Gotta make way for the wave pool and lazy river (yawn) that they are adding to their ill planned water park.

I too hate to see this go since this is far and away one of the best river rapids rides out there (only behind BilgeRat Barges for my favorite). I wouldn'.t be that upset if something better replaced it like another coaster, but the wave pool and lazy river definitely are going to be horrible compared to this.

I too agree that the removal of their rapids ride is ill-conceived and a stupid move overall by Hershey. I'.ve never liked the look of The Boardwalk from day 1, as it just seems as though they tried to cram a bunch of slides and whatnot into a space that just was not suited for it. Removing rides to continue that just makes things worse in my mind.

^ While it'.s not the best appearance wise, the first phase of the boardwalk appears to have some decent slides though, but it'.s really this second phase that angers me.

A bit off topic though, did Hershey incorperate the Roller Soaker in with the Boardwalk or is it still part of Midway America?

Ill-conceived and a stupid move pretty much sums up my toughts of the etire boardwalk. Should have tried to relocate some of the nearby parking and put a proper water park in there... one where waterpark expansion would not mean the removing of rides in the amusement park part of Hersheypark

As for Roller Soaker... yes, its now part of the boardwalk... the Boardwalk surrounds it.

The lazy river and wave pool are fun but came at an awful price. I still think they could have built them without taking the rapids out.
