Hersheypark Skyrush Construction Update #107 (4-19-12)

Let’s check out what’s happening this week with Skyrush!

The summer banners for Skyrush are up in Tram Circle.

Close to almost exactly one month till opening day!

This archway looks like it’s starting to go up over the low clearance area near Rhineland on the new path.

Should be interesting to see the rest of it.

It also looks like it’s going to be long as well.

Looks like the path down here has been paved in.

Footers for the rest of the braces that will hold up the archway.

Beautiful!

Jackpot!!!

It’s hard to tell if it’s a pull through or it stopped here while testing, but it is certainly missing a few cars.

Here’s some wiring for something.

Close-up.

The photo tower is in. Now it just needs cameras.

The anatomy of a Skyrush car.

It seems to be missing its floor and nose-piece.

The cable is in and looks ready to go.

I must add that this is genius. Unlike on Intimidator 305 where the return cable goes in a trough under the lift, this one goes under Comet’s first drop, under the path and queue and back up to the station! This was a smart way to get around space limitations.

The first train is in the transfer track.

The station looks quiet.

Let’s check out Looper’s makeover.

Brake-fins look to be going in.

Here’s where Skyrush’s lift cable comes back up to meet the station.

Looper’s brake fins on the MCBR look to be in.

These are the only ones I could see on this part of the ride.

There were two sets of two brake-fins next to each other.

As you can see, more are being added to the reduction.

Can’t see any trains yet around the station.

That’s it! Thanks for reading!

  1. Great update! Thanks. Everything looks amazing, shouldn’t be long until testing starts. Also, I can’t wait for landscaping it’s really gonna tie it all together. Thanks again for your updates! You always have the best!

  2. Love the whole landscaping and lighting concepts in the Hollow and new path way. I agree with ‘storm’ your photo / updates are great!
