Hershey characters. Hersheypark has a strange system of associating different chocolate brands with the various height categories for the rides. For example, "Kisses" rides are for those between 36"-42", whilst "Jolly Ranchers" are for those over 60". Get it?
Odd vending machines aren't just the domain of Japan. At Hersheypark you can buy a bottle of chocolate or plain milk.

An overview of Skyrush.
The ride uses a newer generation of track design from Intamin that is stiffer, allowing it to make long spans, with fewer supports required.
Note that virtually nobody has their hands up. Even the most seasoned coaster rider will be holding on tight for this one.
Those out there looking for a ride that really pushes the limits in terms of intensity should look no further.
