I was pretty excited to ride Fahrenheit. After following months of construction and Hersheypark's fun teasers before the announcement, my anticipation level was pretty high.
Fahrenheit begins with a large right turn into the vertical lift. The lift features two chains to pull each train to the top. After facing skyward, you eventually crest the lift and are plunging back to the Earth at 97 degrees. In the back rows, this is the highlight of the entire coaster. The drop throws you into the harness, giving you some amazing airtime.
The first inversion is the norweigan loop. The norwegian loop is basically a straight diving loop followed by an immediate immelman, pulling out in the same direction you entered the inversion. It's not very disorienting but it does provide a unique sensation.
A wide cobra roll and double corkscrew follow the norwegian loop; both are very uneventful. A quick, sharp right turn after all the inversions provides some decent positive G's. The next element is an ejector airtime filled bunny hop, the 2nd best part of the ride. The coaster completes another quick turn followed by a smaller bunny hop into the brake run.
Fahrenheit is a very short coaster that doesn't pack any sort of punch that smaller looping coasters should pack.

I always try and get down to Belmont park every year or so to ride this coaster. It isn't the tallest or fastest, but it is always a lot of fun. Sometimes it tracks kinda rough. But last time I rode it was butter smooth. The coaster is also well taken care of -- the queue and station are always being kept clean. I recommend it to anyone in the area.
