Hersheypark Skyrush Updates #109 to 111 (4-26 to 5-1-12)

Sorry for the week absence. I’ve been busy finishing up my college semester. To make up for it, here are three updates in one post.

Update #109 (4-26)

Some of Looper’s new magnetic brakes look like they have been installed.

The bases of the footers are being painted.

Some of the path still needs to be paved and finished up.

Skyrush’s 2nd train was installed.

Update #109 (4-30)

Here’s a cool photo.

Looks like some of the lapbars are open.

The workers seem to be pulling their attention to the former Creekside Catering building. Much of the debris has been there since the flood.

More of the pathway cover has been added.

Gardening seems to be going on along the pathway.

This new sensor bar showed up.

Here’s an underside of the lift. You can see the cable in the center.

Last-minute tweaking going on to the lift supports.

Also testing of the cable lift system! It moves pretty fast! You can check it out here: http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?v=3532748750927&set=o.197071770330160&type=3&theater

Update #110 (5-1-12)

The first train has been moved into the station, and the dummies are in the seats!

Painting going on out on the track, from what it looks like.

Taking the cherrypicker out for a spin.

Tinkering with the camera ole.

It’s good to see what someone will look like in these seats with the lapbar down.

Also, Looper’s Station was repainted and now has orange trim.

More soon as we get closer to opening day!

For those who haven’t seen the clips yet, All-American Thrills and Andy from Project 2012 have captured Skyrush’s first few laps on film: http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DGgPSY658VhI%26feature%3Dshare&h=RAQE8PillAQH2IJM6qBFsCui311ToDt7Z0kGwsG6UZP1PLQ

So when will Keystone Thrills capture the testing on video? I plan on going over Monday to see if it is testing and will record it if it occurs. 😉
