Probably my least favorite flat at Hershey. It did get pretty fast and intense, but with a price. It just seemed so uncomfortable for a long time. I did not want to reride this at all, but I will give it a decent grade, because of its intensity. The gs just seemed uncomfortable, pulling me down to the side and straining my head the whole time. Call me soft, but its a bit too much pain, and not enough gain for a flat ride!

A ride that took me three trips to get since it seemed very unreliable. It has flashy lights, it spins, repeat. Other then being at a great park this ride did nothing to distinguish itself from all the other versions of this I have rode.

Hersheyparks Music Express was a below-average himalaya and a massive disappointment. Located at the far end of Hersheypark in Midway America, Music Express is next to Lightning Racer. A compact himalaya, this one is a modern one built by Moser Rides. The lights for the Music Express are good, especially at night when they brightly illuminate the area. Also, the music played during the Music Express was better than I expected. Painted in vibrant colors, the Music Express almost always is a walk-on because of a high capacity. Loading takes a long time for the Music Express because the ride operators joke around way too often. Once restrained by a silver lap bar, the ride begins. Unfortunately, this himalaya doesnt go very fast and has an incredibly short ride cycle, only going forwards. My main complaint is a rough spot when the cars travel over one of the hills. I was pushed forwards and yanked back slamming my back into the non-padded cars every lap. Overall, a terribly run himalaya that was a disappointing flat ride at a park with many good flat rides. I recommend the Music Express only to those who really enjoy himalayas. Otherwise, skip it and ride its neighbor, Lightning Racer.

Since I rode this a couple of times during my last visit to Hershey Park, this would be a cumulative rating combining each of my experiences on the Music Express. This was the first ride of a Himalaya type that I have ever ridden, so I dont have very much to compare it to. I thought that it had a good speed that didnt get me very dizzy, if at all. This ride was DEFINITELY more enjoyable for me when I sat on the left side of the car, while my friend of a smaller size sat on the right. This Music Express not only spins you, but also drops and lifts you up and down small "hills" as you are spinning. When I rode this ride with another friend of mine who was of a larger size than me, I sat on the right side of the car, and he sat on the left. This is the main thing that brought this ride down from an 8 to a 7 for me. Why, you ask? Because, while I was riding on the right side of the car, I was constantly being pulled to the left toward my friend. This turned the ride into more of a "work-out" than a fun experience for me. But this did not make the ride a completely negative experience, and I was still able to enjoy myself. I know that it was not just me who was having this problem because, when my friend of a smaller size was sitting on the right side of the car while I was sitting on the left, I noticed that he was experiencing the same problem. Maybe it was just us, but I highly doubt that. If you do go on this ride, watch out for that right side of the car!

P.S.! If you DO ride with a friend, the rule that Hershey Park made was that, if you are of a larger size than your friend, you must sit on the left side of the car while your friend sits on the right. I would HIGHLY reccomend sitting in a separate car than your friend so that NEITHER of you have to face the nuisance of trying not to smash into each other!

This ride is very rough on the body especally the head and neck. It is far to short. The York Fair has a better music express.

This is one dull Music Express. It is better then the one at SFGAdv, but it isnt very fast. If you want a good Himalaya type ride, go to a fair.

This is by far the worst Music Express / Himalaya ride that I have ever been on... even worse than the one at Dorney. Located in Midway America, it is in a nice setting and all of that, but it is also at the front of the park which causes some extra conjestion. This was actually a fairly long line. We waited about 20 minutes for this flat. We figured that it would be decent. However, it was no where near as fast as the fastest that I have been on and was about the shortest ride of the day, even shorter than Pirate which is the parks swinging ship ride. It was a fairly new version of the ride, I believe I read on it that it was manufactured in 1998. However, that means nothing when you dont know how to operate it. I think that I will stick to this kind of ride at fairs and carnivals. At least they go backwards at those.
