Here is yet again another update where it’s interesting in how much they can accomplish in just a matter of a day of work. The 2nd lift support is now taller than Comet’s turnaround and is as tall as Comet’s first drop (96 feet).
Trackwork is now starting to pick back up again. This one is part of the first drop.
Quite a bit of the ride is already up.
It is quite interesting watching them assemble it.
Notice something unique?
One or two sections still need to go up before it’s considered the highest it will go.
This little buddy has been using the supports as a perch for about a week or so.
The support structure will be blue and yellow.
They were bolting it in as I was getting there.
A new track piece has been added bringing the total number of installed segments up to 4.
With one on-deck and another loaded on a flatbed over at the staging area, the drop should look interesting in a few days.
Old and new.
Notice something missing?
The shading for Comet’s queue has been dismantled.
SkyRush…. Through the Comet!
Outside the park along Hersheypark Drive, you can bearly make out this support.
Filling in the footers. Not many pieces left to install to the lift hill.
The full track segment so far.
More odd supports.
Later in the afternoon, they were finished with installing the yellow crossbeam.
The next update will be on Wednesday. Should be very interesting to see what it looks like by then. Stay tuned!
