    I'm still in shock that they released the information a week before it was scheduled to be announced!
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".

      Oh so that's where the money went for all the jobs lost in Oakdale. Glad Hershey PA is doing well.

        It seems Hershey has a thing for low capacity rides.

          ^ Most Coasters at non-disney parks have about the same capacity. If your looking at Six Flags or Knott's, even though their coasters may have a 'capacity' of 1000 per hour, they VERY rarely hit those numbers.

          Hersheypark operations are very good and they should do okay with wait times.
