Sorry for the week absence, guys. It’s the last few weeks of classes and I’ve been very busy. Hopefully today’s update will make up for that. :o)
It’s the last weekend of Springtime in the Park, which means the Summer season opens up in several weeks!
I know somebody was requesting some photos of Skyrush with the creek filled up.
Here you go! 🙂
As you can see, it’s amazing what a little water can do!
Once the hillsides get landscaped, Skyrush will really look awesome in its location.
Especially in this turn, if you are sitting in the edge seat, it looks like it might feel like you are skimming the creek!
In short, it looks great!
Inside the park, the clearance cart was parked on the brakes.
Here’s how close it comes to Comet’s station.
I don’t think I covered this in last week’s update, but Comet’s new queue has been moved out more away from the building.
Here is what a finished Skyrush footer will look like.
Let’s take a trip on the Skyview.
You can really get some good shots of the brake run and station.
When you’re in The Hollow, Skyrush’s height looks bigger than from Park Boulevard.
Work still continues on the Schwarzkopf Special. 🙂
Here is a full view of Comet’s new queue. It is divided into two parts with the left being the second .
Here is Comet’s new entrance.
The sign looks almost like brand-new!
Here is the funky pre-brake run turn.
It’s a photo like this that makes me with it was already Memorial Day weekend.
These red stations doors have been installed during the week.
The closer you are, the steeper it looks.
Here is Skyrush’s Queue.
This part of the path still has work that needs to be done.
The stairs to the station.
If you look closely, I think you can see the holes on where the queue chains will be.
Let’s check out the area at night. If you look to the center near the start of the lift, you can see what looks to be some lift hill lighting. It’s only one light, but it gives you an idea of what it may look like when it’s done.
The station was brightly lit up.
Same thing for the soon-to-ber queue area.
That’s it for this update, I’ll try to post another one or two sometime next week if I have a chance. Thanks for reading!
