P. 435: Wildcat's Revenge announced!

Recommended Posts

I could have sworn that at some point through the early nineties it was also brown ( I think the blue came when Great Bear was built and they did a minor facelift of Comet Hollow- mostly paint.) Also, and I'm probably mistaken, didn't it start out with a pitched roof when it was first built? Maybe I'm mixing it up with the original Wildcat.

 

edit: I was mistaken, it was actually just had exposed trusses, like a pavilion. And it had Brown paint from some point in the eighties until 1995.

My bad. It's color was acutally green and brown.

 

Back to the updates! A lot has happened over the past week not just in the construction site, but around the park as well, so let’s get started!

http://keystonethrills.wordpress.com/2012/03/13/hersheypark-skyrush-construction-update-95-3-12-12/

 

Here are some of the keypoints of the update:

-The photo booth is going up.

-The queue and exit stairs are starting to go up.

-Catwalks are being added to Comet's bridge and the lift motor area.

-Only about 5 track pieces and one footer to go until the circuit is completed.

First off, I want to send a huge thanks out to Ccron for the countless updates throughout Skyrush's construction! I know you don't have to do that at all, but it is certainly greatly appreciated!! Kudos!

 

That said, I just want to say that your last picture in that update - the panoramic shot - is absolutely gorgeous! Just wow. I can't recall the last time I've been this excited to ride a new coaster that wasn't at my home park (Dragster in 2003 springs to mind as the last one). The layout just looks fantastic, and each update that shows the construction getting closer and closer to completion gets me even more pumped to ride! Bring on the summer!

When will it be ready?

 

May 26th, according to wikipedia. However, the "Junior Researchers" were warned in the fall that they might miss that date due to all the flooding last year. I don't know how their current progress matches up with their original schedule, as the mild winter might've helped them make up time.

Interesting - I never realized that the first big turnaround in that last picture switches to single-spine track. Looks like it's all the way against the edge of the ride area, so it was probably a space decision. I just never noticed!

 

I would think that they can have the ride ready by memorial day weekend, so long as they keep moving! Hopefully they'll close those gaps soon with this amazing weather we're having in the northeast, and then it's a waiting game until they start testing!

Yeah, that warning was made back in the fall, taking possible winter weather delays in account. All in all it was a rather mild winter around here, so it's very well they might have caught up some of the initial delays brought on by last year's flooding.
