Roller Soaker was a SetPoint suspended roller coaster located at the Boardwalk (formerly at Midway America) at Hersheypark in Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA. It was Hersheypark's first (and so far only) interactive coaster and the second of its kind.
History[edit | edit source]
The park announced in December 2012 that Roller Soaker would be removed to make way for a waterpark expansion. It was subsequently scrapped.
General Information[edit | edit source]
Riders sit back-to-back in suspended cars of four. Each seat has a bucket of 4 gallons of water under it that can be emptied on guests below by pulling a lever. These buckets are refilled while riders load at the station. In addition, many water cannons on the ground may be operated by guests for the purpose of shooting the riders above. The course itself is made up of gentle drops and turns along with a few areas where riders are splashed with water from buckets, fountains, etc.
