    One can see how Hersheypark had to be very creative with building the roller coasters in this area, both of which were built much later than the Skyview. SuperDooperLooper was built in 1977, and Great Bear was built in 1998. Great Bear is where the builders had to be very creative, which is why it has that helix after the lift hill but before the first drop (something unusual for B&M inverts), and giving the chairlift clearance had to be factored into the Immelman loop.

      Is that the blue part or the grey part?🤔

        Great Bear is the black and grey one, where the track hangs below the support structure. SooperDooperLooper has the blue support structure the return terminal is located under.
