The great thing with Intamins restraints is that even if the ride has OTSR's, they'll still not be very restricting. I know on the rides Ive been on with Intamins new OTSR's I haven't really noticed them coming in contact with my body at all.
Hersheypark has sent us a press release announcing the launch of a new Skyrush Facebook campaign.
From March 1 through March 31, fans of the Hersheypark Facebook page can participate in ”Join the Rush,” a promotion that gives them the opportunity to save up to $20 on Hersheypark tickets and enter to win one of the first rides on Skyrush.
Skyrush, which features unique winged outer seating, will become the longest, tallest and fastest roller coaster at Hersheypark when it opens in May. Through “Join the Rush,” Hersheypark fans will have the opportunity to create their own virtual Skyrush train and invite their Facebook friends to ride along. The more friends who “accept” the invitation to join the train, the greater the savings on Hersheypark tickets. Pricing is as follows:
Fill a train with one to four friends, save $16 off regular admission
Fill a train with five to eight friends, save $18 off regular admission
Fill a train with nine to 12 friends, save $20 off regular admission
Participants also are automatically entered into a sweepstakes to win Hersheypark tickets, an overnight stay at Hershey Lodge and one of the first rides on Skyrush with all their friends from the virtual train.
Tickets must be purchased online by April 15, and the discount applies only to the purchase of regular one-day admission. Tickets mush be redeemed by July 1, 2012, and there’s a limit of 10 tickets per transaction.
I can not stop coming here and looking at the pictures of Skyrush!! Can not wait to visit this coming season and ride it - I have to plan a none weekend day so I can get lots of rides in on it.
I may not know everything about coasters... what I do know is they are my life... Home park: Six Flags America Favorite park overall: All Walt Disney World Parks Favorite Steels: Maverick, Millennium Force, Sky Rush, Talon, Poltergeist, I-305 Favorite Woodies: Iron Rattler, Phoenix, Roar, El Toro, Jack Rabbit, Thunderbolt, The Raven, The Legend TPR Trips: Northeast 2011, LeviaTHON 2012
I cannot get over how simply phenomenal Skyrush looks!! This coaster looks like it has the potential to have absolutely everything I love in a coaster crammed into one heavenly ride! I will be there at some point this spring/summer to ride this beast - there is NO question about that!
And the general look of the coaster, for me anyway, is gorgeous. Their color choices were so spot-on with this one. Not to mention, Hershey is one of the masters of weaving rides/coasters in and around one another. The interactions between rides are part of the fun!
As for that first drop? Ummmm, yeah.....
I would rather be off riding coasters!
