awesome pictures. Is that all the covering that they will place over the path. This ride packs some serious OMFG speed over hills surely to throw riders up into their restraint like El Toro does over rolling thunder.... This could end up being a ride notorius for projectile cell phones and other miscellaneous unsecured items. Even in that first test video we saw something fly off the train. :lmao: This is the ride of 2012 IMO

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

Those straps around the dummies' ankles - they bother me.

I'll ride in an inside seat, so they won't matter; but they still bother me.

What bothers you about the straps? I was wondering why the outside had the straps, but not the inside.

I think it is really awesome that Hershey has got new trains but am I the only one who is slightly dissapointed that Gerstlauer did not design the new trains with the Schwarzkopf "face" (as I like to call it)?

SkyRush is looking awesome!!!

You've said many times that you're riding the inside seat. Who cares? Why do you keep mentioning this? Are you only riding once, or do you refuse to ride the outer seats or something?

Also, I'm pretty sure the straps are just for the dummies so the limbs don't flail around in the wind seeing as they don't have a brain to control leg movement, I highly doubt humans are going to have to use straps, lol.

^^What he said. There's no legitimate reason to care whatsoever about those straps. They're probably there to minimize leg movement, because a water-filled plastic dummy has much less secure body parts than the average human.

Is the brake run also too high?

Those straps are just for the test dummies.
