The Stengel Dive actually looks like it will be pretty intense. I'm really looking forward to experiencing it, along with the rest of the ride!

Track to go up tomorrow

Half of the beautiful drop - we expect the yellow support to get painted and predict the drop will extend 75 feet above it's existing point.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread 385921_318380698196075_100000724421732_1068122_1008008795_n
2nd to last turn before the brakes. The banking is close to 90 degrees and we expect the train to scream through this section

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread 392044_318380948196050_100000724421732_1068124_327571912_n
Going up the first 80 foot airtime hill. This hill can not be completed until the lift hill if finished since it will block the crane in place.


Skyrush Official Discussion Thread 393324_318381314862680_100000724421732_1068128_294998189_n
Stengel Dive! Smile

Intertwined track - you can see a potential head shopper here. The track at the bottom of the page is right after the first drop, while the track above it is a turn around, and entering the Stengel Dive(the train will be approaching from this angle

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread 400314_318381731529305_100000724421732_1068133_515118271_n
This looks like scafolding, but judging by the flimsy nature of the wood, I'm not really sure what it is. Could it be for checking clearance? Any suggestions?

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread 387881_318381974862614_100000724421732_1068135_269002097_n
Track to be installed tomorrow, and some lift pieces.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread 400693_318382698195875_100000724421732_1068138_1075797126_n
Another 90 degree turn, not the Stengel Dive.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread 380787_318383711529107_100000724421732_1068140_41417724_n
Another funky support. Could be for the track close to the new walkway or for the maintenance path by Comet's exit. Any suggestions?

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread 404470_318385614862250_100000724421732_1068143_664966959_n
Bags taken off the station wall. Progress. Note the yellow brackets which will be for the lift cable.

See the stone wall started? That wall will help to hold the creek in it's boundaries. It should look nice. While now the site is a mess, once Skyrush is done it will all be landscaped. It will look very pretty. Smile

Greetings from New Jersey.

I'm a lil bummed that the track switched from double spine to that single spine. I did see though that because of the available land there a larger cluster of supports showed up that allowed the track to switch back to single spine. Intamin is back to their old ways. They switched from box lattice track to triangular to thin station track on Millenium Force. I have the preference for the one mostly consistent in thickness B&M box track.

For me, my focus is on the ride experience. I'm not an engineer, but would assume the reason the tracks change between single and double spine is forces the track must absorb and cost. I don't think we'll see the box track make a return, and believe on the construction to date, Skyrush is going to be not only a great looking ride, but also deliver a world class ride experience.

The new park path will be where those cluster of supports are too? I think it balances out allowing for safe path to be built and the forces get evenly distributed over the area. I'm glad when the supports get away from the creek too.

I'm really excited to see this thing in person in about another week! As long as the weather cooperates, we should see a lot of activity between this week and next.

At this rate, I suspect the lift may be crowned Saturday or Sunday. Maybe earlier. Since they're bolting multiple pieces and installing them all at once. Will be an exciting week!
