Let’s get back to the updates! A lot has happened over the past week not just in the construction site, but around the park as well, so let’s get started!
Spring is in the air! Hershey Gardens is busy getting ready for their late-March opening, the flowers are blooming and the trees are starting to bud.
The Claw looks like it’s getting warmed up for the coming season!
Between Sky, the cat and this hawk, they seem to get into my updates for some reason.
Five track pieces to go!
I spy a Lightning Racer train!
Let’s check out the Skyrush ride area.
Last footer to go!
Just this section of tracks need to be installed and the circuit’s complete!
More work seems to be going on over at the beginning of the new path.
I wonder what this circular thing is for?
The stengel dive turn has been installed!
Also, if you haven’t noticed from the last few photos, half of the creek is now flowing through the construction site again, but this time it looks to be on purpose.
Tilt-A-Whirl has made some progress since the last update.
The second-to-last creekwall section has been installed.
After this section, just the smaller section down near the curved airtime hill needs to be added.
Comet’s bridge has received some new catwalks stretching alongside its first drop.
I see a roof going up…
More specifically, the roof for the ride photo booth.
The station looks much different since the last update.
The framework for the entrance and exit stairs are starting to go up.
The roof has been added to the station and more brickwork has been added to the first floor.
The windows for the restrooms have been installed as well.
Some serious digging going on in the queue line.
Concrete has been poured for Comet’s queue line.
Here’s a better view of the photo booth.
Off to the left you can see the framework for one of the landings for the entrance and exit stairs.
Whack-A-Mole is starting to have its roof reinstalled.
…and here is Comet’s new facade.
It still needs a little more work, from the looks of it.
Some catwalks are being installed to the foundation holding the lift motor as well.
Only two months till Memorial Day weekend. Won’t be long until we see the winged-seated train go flying around this turn!
Here is something new that I am trying. Here are some panoramas!
Here is where I usually get the airfield photos.
This is Tram Circle. You can see the Arena off to the left and the Lighthouse off to the right.
Just that corner section of the coaster needs to be installed on the left.
Here’s the view from the path near the first drop.
Hope you enjoyed this update! I’ll be back with another on Wednesday!
