Built in 1946 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company (PTC) of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the coaster features an out and back track layout. When built it was jointly owned by Hershey Park and PTC.
The Comet goes up an 84 foot lift, and then drops 96 feet at 52°, according to Hersheypark. Though Hersheypark claims this to be the correct number, other people dispute this measurement and say that the drop is the same as the lift, at 84 feet.
After the first drop, also called the "Chocolate Drop," the train goes up a hill and then makes a 180 degree turn, drops back down another hill, goes up a small hill, and then up a larger hill, making another 180 degree turn. After the turn, there is another drop, and after a bunny hill, the track makes a right turn ("dog leg"), going through several bunny hills before another 180 degree turn. Following the second set of bunny hills is a left turn, two bunny hills and the then the train slows into the station.
As is typical, the train usually sits for a few moments before coming around into the station because of an extra "brakage" that served as an unloading point until the Comet was renovated in the mid 1990s. By having a "load" and "unload" point, the ride could handle three trains, as it did when it was built.
