^^ Better to give yourself more time to get things done then to have to delay and have people whining about the delay lol

It's just part of a turn and it's already just oozing with Intamin sexiness :lover:

After everything that's been announced for 2012 Skyrush is still my #1 must ride for next year!!! Is it to early to do a Paul Ruben and declare this as the #1 ride on the planet and my ultimate #1 :lmao:

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

I really don't think it will be complete by Christmas.

It's better to get a job done right and take longer than expected than to rush a job and have a bumpy opening.

This is gonna be fast! If the first hill after the drop is only 80 feet, this is really gonna scoot!

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Isn't the terrain for the ride pretty difficult to work with, since it is over a river and all? I would assume they started early to get a head start on that in case they run into any problems.

I suspect that as more supports and track are added, the perspective of the construction site will drastically change, and it will be very clear how tight the layout of this coaster is going to be. I definitely think that the base of the first drop, nestled right against that rock wall, was a perfect place to start throwing up track. I looks nothing short of AMAZING!!! :lover:

I can't believe they managed to cram Looper Lanes where they did. Wow.

I definitely side with the crowd that doesn't think track work will be done before the Christmas holidays. I imagine they're pushing to get a head start this weekend because there won't be work over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

There is also a ton of landscaping and building construction to be done in addition to the coaster, much of it like the pathway and pond probably can't even start until the ride construction is completed.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

Hersheypark is definitely the Grona Lund of America, except much bigger.
