Hersheypark have announced a waterpark expansion for 2018 over on their Twitter:

Screenshotted from their teaser video.

This looks to be one of the biggest expansions to the water park since it opened, and will feature two attractions:

Whitecap Racer:

Whitecap Racer will be a six-slide racing slide complex, featuring two tunnel sections, making them longest racing slides in the world. It's also said to have a timing system featured on many slides of this type, adding a competitive aspect.

Breakers Edge Water Coaster:

Breakers Edge will be a water coaster, which I think is of this model, as they're pitching it as the first water coaster to feature flying saucer turns. Controversially, this is being teased as "Hersheypark's 14th coaster", which is ... interesting. :P

The park have a mini-site for the expansion, located here.

Volcano Bay's version of this water coaster also won "Best New Coaster" in a people's choice award for Orlando. It's interesting but I suppose not false at the same time :-k
