Here it is.... "More water = more fun. At least that’s what you, our guests, have been telling us! Look for new attractions including a spray ground and an estimated 5,000 square feet of water play area! In 2013 you’ll find more shade, more seating, and more room to play in the Boardwalk." Posted on HP's FB page...
Now, here's MY thoughts..... I think this is an inexpensive, quick, easy, and possibly temporary solution, to prevent dead-space after Roller Soaker's removal. BUT, this does cover the main "image" of The Boardwalk, it will allow guests to cool off, relax, and have a fun time getting wet in the elements... Hershey told me on their FB Page that there will be a name- YAY.
Personally, I'll remain optimistic, and I look forward to splashing around this area in 2013. Because no matter what, it'll be fun and refreshing for everyone in any family.
Here is a link to a basic video on Sprayground's...
Here is a link to a TON videoshttp://www.youtube.com/user/RainDropProducts/videos
These areas seem pretty cool, and VERY customizable.
KEEP IN MIND, these concept arts are NOT from Hershey- we can assume Hershey's will look similar to something like this, but it might not.
When I first read this on HP's FB page, I was skeptical. But I thought about it the past hour or so, and since Hershey hasn't really been 100% clear on the details of the new area, I will continue to look forward to the Spray Ground, and remain optimistic.
THINK ABOUT IT, this attraction will likely allow guests instant access, it seems high capacity, and it lets guests play and cool-off quickly, and for however how long they choose. A HUGE complaint about The Boardwalk is the lines, and lack of seating on busy days. I think having a large area similar to ones in those videos above, will solve many of those complaints. And Hershey DID say there will be seating in the new area!
I am EXCITED to see more.
No matter what, I look forward to taking advantage of the Sprayground area in 2013! Because I LOVED splashing under Soaker's area!
