SkyRush Making Strides at Hersheypark

© 2011 Hersheypark

It's been a while since we've checked in on the progress of SkyRush at Hersheypark, and in that time quite a bit of the project has been completed.  Take for instance the fact that both supports and track are now in place!

The park has been working in some tricky conditions while building SkyRush - mainly due to the fact that they are working directly in the middle of a creek bed.  Even with these challenges the park has managed to complete almost all of the footer work in the main section of the ride, which will take place over the creek.

Even more exciting though is the addition of track in one small area, and supports in several.  I admit I wasn't sold on the ride's colors at first, but seeing it come together has me sold!  For lack of better words, SkyRush will add a lot of personality to the Comet Hollow section of Hersheypark.
