    Launch Intensity Layout

    A little short but awesome. Crazy intense launch and an equally intense rest of the layout. Loved the inversions.

    Launch Intensity Layout Too short

    Now get ready, here we go! You go from 0 to 70 before you can say "hydraulic launch". You skyrocket up into a tophat before plummeting back towards the ground. Before you realize what's happening, you are upside down, and then you aren't. You fly towards the sky and then you keep twisting and twisting. You plummet towards the ground, again, and then you are whipped left, right, left. And as soon as it began, it was over...

    Inversions Launch Intensity Too short Reliability

    i love these hydraulic launches, and while i think kingda ka and TTD have much better launches, storm runner's is still very intense and i love that it has more length, and it actually has some good inversions too, which makes it right up there with the strata accelerators, im so sad that storm runner might meet its unfortunate fate soon

    Location Launch Too short

    8.7 out of 10! Too short, would love to see little more like the Marerick. Love the launch, line how it runs for all to see in the park.

    Inversions Launch Intensity Too short

    Storm Runner may be short, but in its limited ride time it packs one heck of a punch. The launch is a powerful and intense one that shoves you back into your seat, heightening your senses for what’s to come; and the following dive into the valley gives some good ejector, as you soar right past a restaurant I once ate at. The Cobra loop is decently intense, and the heartline roll offers a brisk moment of hangtime; but the best moment on this great coaster has to be the Flying Snake Dive! I’ve not yet experienced a barrel roll downdrop, but I will guess that this is most similar to that. You are thrown out of your seat while upside down, and pressed back into it just in time to duck under the monorail and hop over Trailblazer! The brake run ensues, but Storm Runner is one speedy adrenaline rush.

    The ironically named Storm Runner, like most rides at Hershey, will not run in the rain. I was lucky enough to get a break in the bad weather to get a couple of goes on this machine in the limited time we had to visit. The difference over the other accelerator coasters of course is that this one actually does something with the power rather than fritter it away on the brakes, a massive plus. I hate those Intamin overheads, though I don't remember them being as much of a nuisance as they are on say, Furius Baco or Kingda Ka.

    Inversions Launch Fun Too short

    Storm Runner is a fantastic, smooth accelerator coaster with a very intense launch. The top hat provides a great view, but not that much airtime. The snake loop is cool, but my favorite part is the is the flying snake dive. You are just spinning so fast, then get whipped down the drop. This is overall an intense ride with an excellent launch and fun inversions, but is too short.

    Inversions Launch Ejectors Too short

    Storm Runner is absolutely explosive. The launch is, well, explosive. The airtime into the top hat is huge, and the immelmann is forceful. The flying snake dive is the best part of the ride, airtime into a double barrel roll, and the second roll dives down mid roll. Add some twisty s-bends at the end, and the ride is over. Obviously it's very short, but man is it so sweet.
