Hersheypark Skyrush Construction Update #108 (4-24-12)

After a relaxing weekend (not to mention wet), let’s check out and see what has become of the pull-through.

The trees have bloomed, which means that we are now starting to get a look at what can been seen of Skyrush during the Summer.


This looked cool.


Now that the layout is finished, here is a view of most of the coaster. As you can see, all of the layout stays below slightly more than half the height of the 200-foot lift hill.

One thing is for sure, the Stengel Dive should be interesting to experience.

Creekside Catering has been cleaned out…

Looks like they didn’t take the paddleboat.

The old benches from the hillside before construction are still there.

Looks like the airtime hill off to the left leaps over a tree at this angle!


The path-archway is still progressing.

More blacktop still needs to be added on this part of the path. It looks like they got more of the curbing in over the weekend as well.

Sensors have been added.

Here is the wiring for it.

No cameras yet for the photo tower.

Gotta’ love the interaction that the coaster will have with the path!

Here is a new view of the station. The side with the doors will be the exit.

Over a Looper, it looks like mounting brackets are being added, judging from the small holes on them.

The transfer bay garage door is closed…

…but it looks like the first train was moved to the station!

All eight rows are there.

Tarps are now covering Looper’s queue railings in the station.

The railings in the queue have been painted…

…And they seem to be working on the building now.

I have one more week of classes until summer vacation, which will open up more time for me. I have several things planned that will be  announced sometime next week that a sure to be cool.

Thanks for reading!
