Eight of Hershey's twelve roller coasters are visible in this shot. Cocoa Cruiser and Trailblazer are hard to see, but they are there if you look carefully.
Two large buildings are prominent in the background. On the left, behind the massive "Welcome to Hershey" text on the grassy hill, is the Milton Hershey School. Founded Milton S. Hershey and his wife Catherine in 1909, this is a home and school for nearly 2,000 children. On the horizon, just to the right of center, is the famous Hotel Hershey. Opened by Milton in 1932, the hotel has since expanded to 232 hotel rooms.
