Hersheypark Attraction 2012 Update #32 (7-27-11)

Today we have a brand-new update by gb980109 from where they are storing the supports instead of the actual construction site. From the look of the supports, it looks to be very interesting:

Here are some pictures of pole 65R.

 
Here’s also a bonus update of the construction site from looking at it in Rhineland:

Hersheypark Project 2012 Update #31 (7-23-11)

The triple-digit temperatures sure didn’t put a damper on construction this week. Also some good news, the park is going to be holding a public announcement of the ride in Comet Hollow at 12:12pm on August 2nd. Expect Keystone Thrills to be on the scene covering the breaking news.

More rebar and  forms are now showing up next to  the dam.

I can’t imagine how hot it must’ve been down there yesterday.

What was once scattered is now starting to take shape.

Next up for concrete.

The other side is starting to look bare.

How in the world did that water get there?

I guess that’s one way to keep cool.

That pit looks deep.

They’re starting to dig holes on the other side.

All in a row.

All in a row as well.

I spy another one about to be built.

Well that’s it for this update.

Hersheypark Project 2012 Update #29 (7-13-11)

So many footers and there are so many about ready to be poured soon from the looks of it. Let’s see what this update shows:

Remember that RIT diagram on footers? These small concrete poles are the beginnings of them.

It’s at the point where it seems easy to figure out a layout for this thing.

Paddleboat anyone? Looks like it has been sitting there since they removed them back in 2007.

A new footer coming soon.

Hmm. Those footers look un-normally thick.

Another new one, but this one has three bolts.

Looks like they’ll need to pump out this one.

I wonder what’s in that trench on the bottom of the photo?

Hmm. I never seen a footer look like that before.

 

Hmm. Going from what’s in the supports next to Lightning Racer and matching them up to this, I think we’re looking at the track being low to the ground at this spot.

Right next to the finished one. This one just needs concrete.

Here’s three of them in a row.

More coming soon.

This is the construction site as of now.  Expect another update coming this weekend from HPCrazy when he visits the park.

While this isn’t a construction update, it could be just as important.

Could this be the name for Hersheypark’s 12th roller coaster? Only time will tell…

 

As for construction updates, they should resume momentarily.

Hersheypark Attraction 2012 Update #28 (7-1-11)

Things seem to be moving right along at the construction site. While track is still nowhere to be found, more footers are still being made as well as progress.

Let’s see what’s on-site this week….

It’s hard to imagine that just 6 months ago that this used to be a picnic area.

More footers along the first concrete wall.

I’m guessing those free tickets were discovered here?

It’s hard to tell if they are going to be pouring any footers there or if they just are storing the castings there.

Tree-clearing on the Comet side of the creek. Looks like work may start over there soon.

My, that’s a big footer.

Quite a few on the hillside.

Big because of being in a flood-prone area maybe?

A stake. These are getting rarer and rarer.

They managed to clear out a lot of brush, yet they still kept the old paddleboat there. lol

The bolts in the concrete wall look interesting.

Looks like a new footer is about to go in.

Here’s a view of the lower half of the construction site.

Looks like progress is starting on the other side of the creek.

So that’s what’s new. 🙂
