Enter the Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Roller Coaster contest


polaroidCalling all Maryland roller coaster enthusiasts and pretzel-lovers! Grab some pretzels of all shapes and sizes and let your imagination soar with Snyder’s of Hanover’s 5th Annual Pretzel Coaster Build-Off contest.

From now through June 9, 2013, contestants can build a roller coaster using only pretzels and glue. The pretzel coaster creations should be an original design, although creations can borrow ideas from existing roller coasters.

After completing the pretzel coaster (no larger than 6-feet-wide by 4-feet-tall), snap a picture of the model, upload the image and complete the entry form at pretzelcoaster.snydersofhanover.com. The entry site also has images of past entries, videos of previous in-park Build-Off competitions and the full contest rules.

Five semi-finalists will win a trip for four to Busch Gardens Williamsburg to participate in the Build-Off challenge. The prize package includes hotel accommodations for three nights and a $100 gas card. The first semi-finalist will be selected by consumers during a “People’s Choice” online voting process. Snyder’s of Hanover and Busch Gardens judges will choose the remaining contestants to move into the final phase: a Build-Off challenge at Busch Gardens alongside the 2012 Pretzel Coaster Build-Off defending champion, Maggie Woodward of Herndon, Va, in early July.

The Snyder’s of Hanover 2013 Pretzel Coaster Build-Off is open to any resident of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina or South Carolina aged eight years or older (with parental or legal guardian consent).
