Here's Fox 43's segment:

http://www.fox43.com/videogallery/67735572/News/1-30-HersheyPark-Skyrush-Topping-Off

Just to make sure no one is confused, the date mentioned is the park's first day of operations for the 2012 season - May 4th. Skyrush will be opening Memorial Day weekend, not May 4th.

Next step would be to add the remaining track on top of the structure that was erected. Clifford was supposed to be out by February 1st but considering the weather delays, I don't know if a clause to extend over the deadline was included with the rental or not. The rest of the coaster can be constructed with the smaller cranes already on site since height won't be an issue there.

The front cover of the 2012 Hersheypark Group Sales brochure. Hopefully this will give us more of an idea of what to expect with the rack brochure as well.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Scan0012


Inside the Group Sale Brochure - page two.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Scan0011

Hopefully this will give us more of an idea on what to expect with the regular park brochure, which should be out pretty soon. Usually, the Group Sale Brochure and regular Park Brochure are similar in design.

These pictures are great and making me excited even though I've never been on a coaster that goes this high...EVER, but I might get up the guts to ride it. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's done. Smile

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08220

Welcome back to another Skyrush update - fresh from our Chocolate-Covered February meet-up. We have A LOT to cover so let's get started, shall we?

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08221

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08222

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08223

Let's go check out Tudor Square, shall we....

Even with the trees at full bloom, the ride will still be visible from some areas approaching the park's entrance proper, creating a nice visual "backdrop" for visitors.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08224

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08225

Construction of the new path is now visible, which will connect Rhineland with Comet Hollow. This will look amazing as guests enter the park and see the new coaster in the background.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08226

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08227

Even with the trees in full bloom, the coaster will be able to be seen from certain areas in Rhineland.

A view of the lift hill from the terrace of the former Hershey Museum.

As well as some of the construction site off in the distance.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08329

More pieces for the catwalk lay in the creek bed ready to be installed.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08331

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08332

I'm really excited at how this will provide great head choppers for riders on board the Comet.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 P1019728

This photo really shows how the height is compared to spectators on the ground. The structure is HUGE!

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 P1019729

Here's a close-up track shot for you guys. Smile

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08334

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08333

As you can see, they've begun to install the catwalk on the one side of the lift hill. Should look amazing when completed.

As you can see, the station is really beginning to take shape. Also note the stakes in the ground where they have begun to mark out where the queue line area will be located.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08342

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08343

The track is also beginning to be erected over Comet's station.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08344

The transfer track and brake run look completed.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 P1019730

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 P1019818

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 P1019819

Just a small tribute to the "Iron Workers Local 404" for the tremendous hard work they've done, and continue to do, building us this large extreme coaster for all of us to enjoy! Our many thanks goes out to you all! Smile

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08345

Great Bear looms in the shadow of Skyrush. Let's go over to the Hershey Story parking lot to check out the construction from that vantage point, shall we?

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 P1019820

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 P1019821

This view really gives us the idea of how this thing dwarfs the Comet.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08346

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 P1019822

Some of us taking some time out for a pic with "our baby".

Let's head up to the hill to see what we can find there....

What's left out in the former airstrip.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08352

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 Dsc08353

Skyrush has really become the "jewel" of Hersheypark and is clearly evident in the park skyline.

Skyrush Official Discussion Thread - Page 4 P1019910

And I conclude this update with our fabulous group of All-American Thrills supporters who have helped to make our site a success! Many thanks goes out to all of you for your continued support! Smile

The craziness hasn't stopped yet. Now after clearing the Comet roof the coaster will then drop a few feet to brakes and the station.

I had thought the final brakes were before clearing the Comet station.

I think they have a trim brake right before it hops over Comet's station. Since the hop over Comet's station isn't that banked, a trim brake right before it is understandable.

Well, I think it seemed like progress slowed because of the lift being constructed(That too a VERY long time) But, last week they put up at least 10 if not more supports. Did the brake run, and some of the track over Comet's station. And also TONS of station work was done. So it certainly is moving at an expotential rate now! And trains are probably going to be there in the next few weeks. Personally, I think any day they will be arriving. I also think there is a very good chance the trains are already there somewhere. Testing will probably start end of March early April.

Man everything has come a long way since the rumors of a "dive"coaster. But that was a good guess considering it is in the middle of the creek. But this is better. Hershey never stops surprising . The past few coasters I have been " where are they going to put it there is no room. Sorry if it is off topic but HP needs to expand soon

An expansion is in planning. It will be a few years, but it's been in the works for a while now.

Ive heard about it before but sounds like it is only in a planning stage but by the time it is done we may have lost a good ride to make way for a new one. We will find out.

It should be finished I believe 2016ish. So, maybe not.
A few weeks ago PennDOT was there with a bunch of blueprints by Park Blvd.
Infact, let me create an entire discussion thread for HP's expansion.

I think clIfford isn't needed any more b/c the track and stairs on top are done. I think the rest can be handled by the smaller cranes.
If it is leaving now should be out in about a week or less

I say Clifford is on his way out very soon. The remaining catwalk to be installed can be done with the smaller crane.

Great pictures Walt, as always! Smile

So is the whole top part of the track up. I can see the catwalks up but can't tell if the track is.

Might be, someone on the Project 2012 group snapped a picture yesterday of the top section of the track that was to be placed on the arc laying on flatbead truck heading down Park Blvd towards the construction site. These pics were taken since that happened so it's quite possible.
