Best of Philly

2012 Roller Coaster


Opened this past Memorial Day weekend, Hershey Park’s Skyrush is a blue-and-gold behemoth-200 feet high, 3,600 feet long, top speeds up to 75 mph, five zero-G hills, lift speed of 26 feet per second. What sets it at the pinnacle of our list, though, are the “wings”: While the two center seats of each four-seat row sit securely on the track, the ones on either end are floorless, leaving riders’ legs dangling 20 stories up. Eeek!
