In my first two visits to Hersheypark, I decided to skip their Tilt-a-Whirl due to both a sizeable line and an eagerness to spend almost all my time on their more unique rides. However, this past year I decided to give Hershey’s Tilt-a-Whirl a whirl during my visit. Located next to the Comet’s snow white structure, the Tilt-a-Whirl has a very clean paint scheme, but ultimately looks no different than your average tilt-a-whirl. During my past visit, the Tilt-a-Whirl was a one cycle wait, but it past visits the line had appeared far longer. One thing is for sure though; it’s not due to slow loading. The operator really loaded the ride quickly. The ride itself is basically your average tilt-a-whirl. Hershey clearly takes good care of their version though since the spinning is very fluid and smooth, which suggests that they frequently grease the tracks. During my ride, I got some really good and complete spins that produced some strong Gs like most tilt-a-whirls do. As for the ride duration, it seemed about average for a tilt-a-whirl, which makes sense since the ride’s low capacity inhibits a long cycle at such a big and busy park. Overall, Hershey’s Tilt-a-Whirl is a very average tilt-a-whirl in my opinion. During a visit to Hershey, the Tilt-a-Whirl can easily be skipped for their far better and more unique attractions; however, if you are a major spinning ride fan feel free to give it a whirl if the line is short since there’s nothing wrong with it. Honestly, it just doesn’t stack up to the park’s other offerings, which is a testament towards how great Hershey is since I am usually a tilt-a-whirl fan.

I liked the ride, but it wasnt that great. Besides Claw, it was the best flat at Hershey (that I rode). It was fast, and intense in a couple parts through the spins. Also, it had a great location in the older section of Hersheypark! Almost a 7, but I will settle for a 6.

This is a very fun tilt-a-whirl, more parks should have them. Can go pretty fast at some points.

Closest I have been to throwing up in a while. It was very hat so the little cars were like magnifying glasses and then I spun at least 20 times before I lost count. Seems like a good version if this is your type of ride. For me just a credit.

Eh. Short ride cycle just like the rest of the flats at the park. It is your standard Tilt-a-Whirl, however, I didnt get that much spinning action and it wasnt that much fun.

One of the better Tilt-A-Whirls I have ridden .I got tons of spinning and there was no line. Good family ride.

Its your average spinning ride. Really fast and fun for children but it can make you dizzy.
