Hersheypark SkyRush Construction Update #56 (12-2-11)

No inside the park update this time since some members of the site plan on going on Sunday.

I believe that it is one piece. Nothing new over at the staging area.

The construction site is a different story.

90+ degrees!!

Much of the supports seem to be up for the first half of the ride area.

More have gone up on the Comet side of the creek.

There’s a second crane now.

The flooding problem looks to be resolved.

The second half of the 80ft airtime hill is going in. Adding track to this won’t happen until the lift goes up (so the crane can get out).

The last airtime hill is going in.

It’s hard to tell if it might deliver floater or ejector airtime.

But check out the support work. I haven’t seen unique supports like that since Great Bear.

Looks like it’s confirmed to be an overbanked hill.

The supports are starting to make their way down the construction site.

Nothing like a webbing of supports. Plus there’s still one more footer unused.

The station footers are done and are ready for supports.

Looks like quite a bit of work might be done by Christmas.

With how much has been done in the past week, I might do updates on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. More coming up soon!

  1. Thanks for the update honestly they are becoming the highlight of my day and is shared with my hole family and my girlfriend the more updates the merrier I love your work can’t wait for more track to go up especially the lift hill when the lift is completed I will be driving out for a look for myself the anticipation is really growing the low to ground nature brings an amazing sense of speed I have a pretty good feeling this ride will rock you surpass most expectations and feel much faster than it is actually going due to how low to ground it will be. Even though it’s likely here’s to no trims on the 2nd hill and hopefully the rest of the ride, best wishes, alec

  2. Couldn’t agree more with Alec. Your updates are really exciting and definitely make my day. I’ll be making the half hour drive to Hershey to see the lift hill once they’ve started on that! Great work, my friend!
