All I can say is if it wasn't for the MagicMeets Fahrenheit ERT (Early Ride Time), I would never have had the chance to ride this great coaster. Once the doors opened to the public, there was a two hour wait to get on for most of the day. I got to ride it four times during the ERT! What a great perk for MagicMeets. Cindy Garfinkel was the MagicMeets Hersheypark coordinator who arranged for the ERT and an excellent lunch in one of the catering areas. She did a fantastic job and has already told me there will be another one next year. I figured the lunch saved me almost $100 for my party of four.

Fahrenheit threw in a few of these inversions to keep the heart pumping after the drop.
