You may remember back a few years ago, Dorney Park had a second wooden coaster, Hercules, a Curtis D. Summers ride that was, at one point, the tallest wooden roller coaster in the world, topping out at 95 feet. The ride wasn’t very popular in its later years due to the extremely violent and rough ride that it produced. It was closed and demolished at the end of the 2003 season and a little under 2 years later, Hydra: The Revenge, a unique B&M floorless coaster opened on its former spot. Yesterday, Theme Park Review posted a great mounted POV of Hercules in its early years (back when it was smoother.)
