The Boardwalk at Hershey Park

Hershey’s impressive new $21 million water park serves up G-force nightmares with the Vortex and several other “aggressive thrill rides” sure to please those with a need for speed, and there are more than enough offerings for the kids and wimps. The Boardwalk’s best treat is the Waverider, a two-rider surfing simulator that gives you plenty of wet and wild thrills without the riptide and sharks. Grade: A
