P. 435: Wildcat's Revenge announced!

Recommended Posts

Yup, that's the right turn after the first drop, and when you consider the second hill of Skyrush is 80 feet compared to Magnum's 2nd hill at 157 feet - Skyrush is going to be one mean hyper. I don't think that animation did the ride justice the more we learn about it and think (hope) Skyrush will be something between a mega-lite and I305.

More Skyrush photos.. Now with 73 percent more aerial photos

If I told you the track in this photo was actually attached to footers and in place would you believe me? No? Go check the much better photos of it taken by the poster above and apologize please.

Here is some track and supports that just met, but plan on getting together Monday if things work out between them.

Does a track sit in the woods?

I have no idea what this is, but I think this might be related to the new slushy stand they are building.

This is the world's worst water feature.

I tried to gain access to the apartment building in this photo to get some more exclusive angles of the skyrush construction and was immediately arrested.

I was told by the four year old standing next to me, that this was the motor that would power the lift hill using nothing but water. I was unable to verify the rumor.

This photo was taken from the top of the kissing tower. I probably should have read the sign before going on this ride as, apparently, kissing the ride op is not allowed.

One more aerial shot of skyrush. Just a quick note that this was my son Bean's (we were drunk when we named him) first trip to an amusement park. So I hope you check out my upcoming trip report of how a 10 week old enjoys riding front seat on Storm Runner. Thanks for reading!

I have no idea what this is, but I think this might be related to the new slushy stand they are building.

I heard that they were going to melt down all the steel and make the slushy stand the showcase attraction for 2012. You know, to give it some flair.

 

It's only a rumor though. The guy at the Dippin' Dots stand at IAAPA told me. So take it with a grain of salt, unless you don't like salt with Dippin' Dots. Maybe you should use sprinkles instead.

I heard the exact same thing. I think this will be a great addition to Hershey in 2012.

Many of us at East Coast Bash thought it was a bit odd that SkyRush supports were stored in plain view along a public street, yet there were no pictures of them on the Internet (as near as we could tell). Thanks for the look at the construction, Chris.
