Hersheypark debuting 'world's longest mat racing slide'

Hersheypark is now boasting the record for "the longest mat racing slide in the world."

The park is unveiling "Whitecap Racer," which features double-looping tunnels, six color-coded racing lanes, and a competition-inducing racer timing system.

The grand opening of the new attraction is Saturday.

A video posted last summer to the park's YouTube channel gives you a first-person view of what your ride will be like.

"Whitecap Racer" is one of two new attractions to "The Boardwalk At Hersheypark" for the summer of 2018 summer. The other is the amusement park's 14th coaster, "Breakers Edge."
