Hersheypark Roller Coaster Cars Craned Back on Tracks

Behind-the-Scenes of Springtime Ride Preparation for 2019 Operating Season

With less than three weeks to go until Hersheypark opens for Springtime In The Park, the maintenance team has entered the final leg of an extremely busy off-season that consisted of inspecting, repainting, repairing and reassembling dozens of rides and attactions, including our world-class roller coasters. On today's checklist? The careful craning of the Lightning Racer coaster cars back onto their dueling tracks using massive cranes.
