BRILLIANT! That's the way to get people talking. Didn't Cedar Point do a similar thing with Maverick but not in website form?

It makes the UK look amateur.

It's great! There are loads of clues around the site and if you use your brain you end up at a result!

I'm sure most of you have figured out "nantimi" is an anagram of "Intamin".

Extension of Storm Runner maybe? surley Hershey wouldn't build a similar type ride in the park. Looks to have a cobra roll aswell as other things.

I just found the gif when you posted, Dan :P.

That is absolutely brilliant - none of this SW secrecy - full blown make your own mind up and here's a load of info to stick in the rumour mill :D.

Hershey Park have certainly gone the right way to create speculation 8)

"Mailto:hyper@nantimi.com" Oh yeah? Hmmm.. "S&O are the key"

Checking out: http://www.hersheypa.com/attractions/he ... k/2008.php

Lots of references to Heat/Fire. So possibly something fire related, or maybe ever water. Could be an Intamin Aquatrax?

Lol, believe me, i did. I love ARG's.

It was just a simple anagram, pretty straight forward.

Yeah Saz, you could be right! Some kind of Intamin ride with a Fire and Water theme!

Those quotes on the left are staring at me, haven't figured out their use yet though.

EDIT: Which GIF are we refering to here. The static letter one, or the animated one?

The "random" text is actually a letter scramble.

Is the gif, the letter named "scanLumber.gif" or is that a different thing? Lumber could be some type of clue.

Also if you hover over the arty quotes, it says "Things are not what they seem, Mr. Hypershaker."

Very interesting!

Edit: found the other gif!!

As i said they already have an Intamin of this type. I think it's going to be an extension to SR and re-themed to boot.
