Roller Soaker

Hersheypark

Roller Soaker at Hersheypark was an interactive, suspended coaster where the riders were engaged in a water war against the spectators and queued guests. Each car on this roller coaster was designed to hold 16 gallons of water that could be let loose in the form of water bombs on the guests waiting in line below. However, the riders should beware, as the spectators were also prepared with huge water sprayers that can be direct up, onto the riders, ultimately soaking all.

Roller Soaker closed after the 2012 season to free up space for an expansion of Hersheypark's waterpark.
