Hersheypark SkyRush Update #61 (12/14/11)

Well folks, the second lift hill support is very close to being finished and much of the track for the first drop has been added. More stuff has been done as well, so lets check it out!

I estimate Skyrush to be around 130 feet tall right now.

From Tudor Square, it looks impressive. Too bad the trees will have leaves on in the summer.

Hello, Intamin Hypercoaster!

The smaller crane is now having trouble reaching the top.

Only Cifford will be able to go higher from there on.

They went back to blue crossbeams.

This gives you a good idea on how the 3-beamed lift hill pieces are going to attach to the top.

The wall that’s going to surround the lake is starting to go up.

Looks like the beginning of scenery to me. I can already picture a hillside of bushes, flowers, and fresh mulch.

Three pieces that still need to be installed.

That is a beautiful turn.

It’s cool to see what the track looks like when it’s not close to the ground.

The electrical building is being worked on.

Here’s a look at the base right now.

Over at the station….well… the station is going up.

The footerwork is moving along at a fast pace as well.

Half of Comet’s queue line has been torn up and it looks like the footers are starting to go in.

Skyrush through the Comet.

I love the look of this turn.

It kind of looks like it swings out a little.

It’s amazing at how it looks like there’s bearly holding anything of those track pieces to those supports on the tower.

Here’s a shot from Chocolate World’s entrance. Too bad that it will be hard to see from here.

From the Rite-Aid parking lot on Chocolate Avenue, you can get a great view of the first drop so far.

Skyrush is now part of the skyline with Storm Runner.

That’s it for this update. My colleague, Cody plans on stopping by to do an update tomorrow and his photos will be on the Project 2012 Facebook page. I plan on doing another one on Friday, then doing a Night-vision update of the station area Saturday night.
