Minimum rider height:
Roller Soaker is a suspended roller coaster with a difference. The ride features a gentle pace, with guests dangling beneath its track as they travel over the Boardwalk area of Hersheypark. The big twist, though, is that each 4-seater car is equipped with water cannons that can be used blast up to 16 gallons at guests in the coaster's queue or floating around the nearby Intercoastal Waterway lazy river. Those on the ground can get in on the action, too, aiming back using handily-placed water cannons. Expect to get pretty soaked.
