Well, the park is open and now we can see if anything inside the park has changed since last year. In short, nothing really stands out, but there have been some changes.
Next to Comet’s transfer track , there are two new stakes. Couldn’t read what they were labeled though.
Stake 90R and 90 something are new and are across the exit path from the former stake that was next to the path lamp.
Remember the markings with the long numbers? Looks like they don’t need them anymore.
May have been from the utility work they’ve done in the offseason.
The original markings from earlier last year have been re-added.
I have a feeling that these are ment to be stakes. It’s hard to tell if the one on the left says 1065 or 106S. If it’s the second one, then we may have our answer to where the station will be, but I’ll have to take a closer look at it to confirm this.
The land looks pretty clear next to Comet’s turnaround right now and a lot of stakes are located on this spot. I am going to bet that this may be where the highest point of the ride may be. Also the dam has held up okay from the flooding and there’s hasn’t been any evidence of flooding inside the park, but down the street along Hersheypark Drive, that’s a different story. The creek has been seperated almost perfectly in half and now they have to deal with the fun task of pumping out all that water.
