Hersheypark coasters list

This is a list of all of the roller coasters at Hersheypark, which to date, include 17 wooden or steel roller coasters and 1 steel water roller coaster. The first coaster opened in 1923, which was a wooden roller coaster called The Wild Cat (originally The Joy Ride). The first steel coaster was added to the park in 1972, the Twin Towers Toboggans. 

In 2018, a new water coaster will open at Hersheypark (Breakers Edge Water Coaster), which, by definition, is not a roller coaster. However, Hersheypark is considering this water coaster to be in the same class as the other roller coasters Hersheypark has had. While this water coaster would not appear on sites such as RCDB.com, I will include the new water coaster on this list once it opens in 2018. 

List of coasters

Hersheypark currently has 13 roller coaster, with five defunct roller coasters for a total of 18.
