STORM RUNNER:

 

This high speed rocket coaster takes you from 0 to 72 mph in two seconds and up a 150 foot top hat element (twisting 90 degrees on the way up)  and then a straight non-twisting 180 foot vertical dive down the other side and into a 135 foot cobra loop and flying snake dive which is similar to a barrel roll before hitting a small group of hills and into the brakes. Silver supports and red track and yellow trains with over-the-shoulder restraints round out to make this one of Hershey's greatest coasters ever built.
