Additional Details:
Hershey Park has more than a score of amusements that stir the emotions with a feeling of excitement, producing thrills. Here's the Comet, the largest roller coaster in America, that has a sheer drop of 85 feet across Spring Creek. The ups and downs are approximately three-quarters of a mile long. In the foreground is the twin ferris wheel, 66 feet high. Alongside are the Mill Chute, with its big downward plunge; the Auto Skooter, where the driver has fun in bumping into other cars, the Bug with cars that sway upwards and downwards at a stiff pace and the Whipperoo, which acquires enormous speed as it goes around curves. In the distance is the big Athletic Field, where often aerial acts take place. At the left is Spring Creek, used for boating and alongside is the terminal of the Miniature Railroad.
