Hersheypark SkyRush Construction Update #52 (11-17-11) First Set of Vertical Supports!

Alright guys, are you ready to witness the next chapter of the construction of a roller coaster? Time for supports and track to be added to the mix!

I met up with Roy and we both checked out the construction site. No-lie, right as we were walking by this, all of the lights for Tudor Square came on! Creepy.

Ah, but this is what we came to see. Looks like the Rush is starting to take to the Sky, so to speak.

Curse you, Daylight Savings Time! Time for the Nightvision!

Let the fun begin!

Support for either the overbanked turn or going into the first airtime hill.

Nightvision off.

This is going to be seriously close to the ground…


There, right there, is the bottom of the first drop! It looks to be around to be banked at a 55 to 60 degree angle.


You can picture how the track is going to curve down the drop from this picture.

It’s going to be twisty. 😛


Those concrete boxes are new and are a mystery. There’s a trench leading from the new foundation on top of the hill to these boxes. Also, something else seems to be going in behind it

Sorry for the poor quality of pics, but don’t depair! I will be back over at the park tomorrow night for Candylane and will be trying to get better photos. This is only a taste of what’s to come!
