I don't post much, mostly I lurk. The title of this thread drew me to post though. I can't let an archer reference go unnoticed.

Forget spring. I'm thinking summer. My Aunt is coming in from out of state in May, and she wants to go to Hershey Park. I haven't been to Hershey Park.

What are some good sites to see at Hershey Park? My Aunt is in her 60's, so she won't be going on many rides, but what other sites/places/events are good at Hershey Park? She likes trains, so is there a train at Hershey Park? How does Hershey Park compare with Kennywood?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Hersheypark is great, and there's a ton of family-friendly stuff around there that a non-rider will enjoy. For people who do like rides then Hersheypark is one of the better parks in the country. It's my 5th favorite that I've been to (behind Kennywood, Cedar Point, Islands of Adventure, and Six Flags Magic Mountain).

And yes, Hersheypark has a train.

When it comes to choosing a hotel, stay either at the Hershey Hotel or the Hershey Lodge. Both are amazing but I prefer Hershey Hotel which is literally across the highway from the park. My wife and I stayed there for the AHL Outdoor game WBS vs. Hershey. The Hershey Lodge has a nice sportsbar that is hockey themed with a ton of Hershey Bears memorabilia. The floor is painted like an ice rink. Awesome stuff.

A couple episodes...did nothing for me.

I'm weird when it comes to that sort of irreverent humor kind of stuff. There's a thin line in the sand when it comes to liking something and hating something, and I honestly can't exactly place where it is.

Adult Swim stuff had a tendency to run thin on me, even the ones I do like. They'd get about 10-20 great 15 minute episodes and then just become messes of inside jokes and joke mechanisms.

I'm less familiar with Frisky Dingo than Adam Reed's other stuff just because of the timing. Sealab came out when I was in high school, Frisky Dingo when I was without cable in Montana...even now that I have cable I've never actually seen Archer on FX (I don't even know what channel FX is) because of digital media (Netflix, Amazon, etc.).

So I just walked in the door after taking my 8 year old nephew to a WBS Pens autograph session. He was thrilled as he's now into collecting autographs. Steve MacIntyre was easily the nicest guy there.

The title of this thread makes me sad that I didn't have any Scotch to pair the cigar I had last night with.

Thanks man! On a side note, I'll never eat another Chicki and Pete's crab fry in my life.
We ordered a bucket; there must have been about 35 potatoes worth of fries in there. It was like the rejuvenating bucket of fries.

I saw your posts. I used to love cigars until I quit smoking. The only problem I had with them was they never tasted the same once you cut and lit them. I hated going back to a cigar that I only smoked half of.
