This is starting to look really good.
Close to the ground and some existing trees.
I can't wait to see it when the water is back in there.
(Please not as much as there was in fall)

I'm with Bubba... coloring looks to me that of an old faded Lego set.


Yeah, that sucks about Chiller...I hate to see it like that. Hey, so we should get a group picture or something ok. I'll call you later!

They should have made it blue/white/black-ish to blend in with Comet, Looper and Bear?

I think the gold doesn't exactly match the sky part of the name. I think silver with dark blue supports would have been better.


Intamin rhymes with win for a reason!

According to an interview in this news story there will in fact be just a lap bar for Skyrush!

I305 + Rita = Skyrush

Hopefully Intamin figured out how to design a good lap bar. :-/

Rita = lame
i305 = pretty great (now).
Rita with i305's speed might be awesome.

I love you Hershey Park for not going with stock design.


I still think the drop is a funky looking shape.

Here is another great testing video with what looks like full speed on the lift. Unreal!

Sucks for Canada's Wonderland as I would not be surprised if this wins best new ride for 2012 over Leviathan. CW got gypped back in 2008 when they built Behemoth the same year as Ravine Flyer II which stole the best new ride award.

That's what happens when you waste all that money on an over engineered B&M ;)

Hopefully Skyrush doesn't have maintainence issues like what most Intamins get plauged with their first season. I can get a Trip Report done in early June.

I don't think there is any shame in finishing second or third in best new ride category. RF2 is amazing and I only live 3 hrs away. We will have to see who wins this year but it wouldn't surprise me if levi doesn't. I guess it probably depends on which ride Alvey likes the best. ;)

The joy of B&M hypers at your home park is everytime you show up to your park they are running all three trains, lines moving fast, and never broken down. You can't say that about the more thrilling intamins. If skyrush wins thats great. Hershey is one of my favourite parks. I wonder if Verbolten is good enough to get in the running. I'm guessing not so much.

In related news Leviathan was running much faster on opening day. The ending was actually good this time. The tunnel is a blur. I think its more to keep people from hitting riders with rocks. It's a nice head chopper though.

If you guys are still coming this summer let me know. I can possibly get discount marineland tix but I need some notice. My sister knows a guy in the parks department.

After seeing that video of the lift, SkyRush is quite an appropriate name.
Hopefully they don't have to slow that down at all.
