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.


2nd to last turn before the brakes. The banking is close to 90 degrees and we expect the train to scream through this section


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.



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


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?


Track to be installed tomorrow, and some lift pieces.


Another 90 degree turn, not the Stengel Dive.


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


Bags taken off the station wall. Progress. Note the yellow brackets which will be for the lift cable.


Coming along VERY nicely! Very Happy

We'll have another update Thursday, with a possibly completed lift by then, we suggest you REGISTER!

Thanks for viewing our update. Have an awesome new year! Smile

Well, they did work today, because if you look at the Weatherbug webcam(Milton Hershey Highschool) replay of today, you see the crane in different spots.

NOTE: ALL these images were taken by me on 1/7/2012, ignore the date printed on the image, as my camera's date is messed up and I need to fix it.
Enjoy! Very Happy


A man working on the beautiful lift support.


/
Working on the lift tower.



The lift track will go in that yellow piece, see the temporary support? And, it sure is steep! Very Happy




Work being done to the station of Skyrush.



Prepping this piece of track to go up! Very Happy





They put a plastic bag around the reel that will house the lift cable.



Electrical house.



Crews at work! These stones seem to me for landscaping.


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



Next piece to go up! That piece will be the piece between the end of the first airtime hill and into the 1st turn around.



More of the stone wall like seen in a previous picture.



They got a lot of track and supports up today! This is the first turn around, coming of the first airtime hill.



Prepping this piece of track! Very Happy



Almost ready to lift it!



Back to the stone wall that was built.



It's lifting!! They're now working to balance it out so it can install easily.



Higher and higher baby! (Yes, I know that's from a ELO song! Razz )


It got a little tangled in a tree! Razz



Uh-oh, it's 3pm, quitting time for construction crews! What do we do with this track now? LOL, lower it back down of course! Razz



And here it sits until Monday! Very Happy



Talk to ya' later Skyrush! Smile



HEY! Where did WaveSwinger go??? Razz LOL.

HEY! Where did WaveSwinger go??? Razz LOL. If you look close you can see some of it's shell to the right of the green pole. :p

Thank's for coming! Make sure to register! Very Happy

Yep I remember seeing Wave Swinger like that up close in person last March. They strip it every year from January through April. Looks like Skyview's gondolas have also been finally removed as well. Nice pics my friend! Very Happy

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.

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!

I'd like to see where and how those lifting brackets attach to the pieces.

Great update as usual guys, Big thanks for all the time you guys are putting in to keep us updated.

That lift hill is effing nuts bounce

Who needs fancy art work and CGI this coaster speaks for itself and it's saying "Look at me damn it, I WILL BE AMAZING"

Be sure to check out ALT's sister site for another Skyrush update from today. By they way ChillerLC1, I took a few close-up shots showing them about to mount the pieces together. Wink

Here are more pictures, courtesy of my friend Alex's (coasteral here at the site) mom who happened to be in the area today:


The lift hill really dwarfs Comet.


Shouldn't be too much longer until our baby is crowned.




Got to be the steepest cable lift out there so far.




Wonder what Clifford is up to now...




Some of what's left out in the old airfield.

That's it for this small update. We'll be covering more, especially when Skyrush gets crowned so stay tuned!
