SOMETHING COOLER IS COMING TO HERSHEYPARK IN 2009!
After hearing reports for over a year now, Hersheypark announced today
that Canyon River Rapids will be replaced to make room for a Wave Pool
called "The Shore" and a Lazy River called the "Intercoastal
Waterway". The "expansion" will be called BOARDWALK: The SEAqel

The podcast video can be found here:
Nothing is said anywhere on the web site about when Canyon River
Rapids (my all-time personal favorite ride to operate at Hersheypark)
will be shut down forever (either mid-season or end of the season)
athough the park may have said something at today's press
announcement. (Anyone know more about when CRR will give its last
rides?) The podcast does report that construction on the Wave Pool
will begin shortly. The nearby Rodeo (Trabant) ride will also be
removed but it's uncertain as to its fate.
