As January turns to February, much of the walls to Laff Trakk’s building have gone up allowing the construction workers to be able to close up the building to add heat. This will likely make it easier for the coaster itself to start to go up.
While out walking, I ran into Brandon and Kyle over at All American Thrills who were out with ALTAir to get their recent arial update. It was a pretty interesting experience in seeing what it takes to fly one of these drones and that it isn’t something like a toy that you just let go and fly around. Just a note, they do get park permission before flying, so don’t try it at home…or should I say, the park. lol
While on that note, let me just insert a little Public Service Announcement as there seems to have been a bit of this lately:
When I get construction updates for Laff Trakk, and this was the same for Skyrush, I always make sure I am taking my photos off private property. The photos that I take are from the side of Hersheypark Drive, which is a public road. While there is a small stone road that runs right next to the park fence that is outside, this road is likely owned by the park and for safety reasons, respect of the construction workers, and because I don’t have park permission, I stay off of this road.
This weekend is ACE’s (American Coaster Enthusiasts) East Coaster event at Hersheypark I will be going with a friend of mine, who is a member. Included will be a construction tour, a presentation from local parks, and a behind-the-scenes tour of Hershey’s Chocolate Tour Ride over at Chocolate World. It’s going to be a great weekend, so stay tuned for more!
