First drop isn't as great in the front. Still awesome. Back is still just as great and terrifying with that kink halfway down. The rest of the ride doesn't suffer from the slowed lift a single bit.

That may have been me. How come you did not introduce yourself? I was by myself until about 12:30 when another TPR forum member showed up.

I had several people stop and talk to me because of the ClubTPR shirt I had on. It was great, I felt like a celebrity!

Anywho... I absolutely loved Skyrush! Got to ride it 10 times, and it is by far my favorite Intamin. It's also my new #1 steel coaster.

I loved the feeling of nearly flying out of the seat on just about every turn.

^I kind of did!?!? I did acknowledge whoever had the shirt on by saying TPR and they just shook their head. And by then i was holding up the line so i had to run up the steps. Haha. Next time I see a TPR member i will for sure stop. And i wasnt in the best of moods either yesterday. My fault for not introducing myself

And yes see, Skyrush still hauls! The lap bar "release" on the break run is very nice. Everyone on the train loved that addition

I got the chance to go on Friday! It was awesome as always. Although I was a little disappointed in Skyrush's slowed lift hill, it wasn't as noticeable as I thought it would be. The release of the restraints was nice, and it was kinda funny how some of the guests were alarmed as in "was that supposed to happen!?", haha. It was great to ride my favourite coaster again (and again and again.... :$), I've missed it so much! I'll be back again in August/September. I'm already counting the days, lol :) <3

Just getting word from the Inside Hershey Facebook page that Hershey Highmeadow Campground, to celebrate it's 50 year anniversary, is changing it's name to Hersheypark Camping Resort. It will feature a new mascot character, have newly named areas, and is located on a newly named entrance road: Sweet St.

Ah, ok. I remember you. I was kind of annoyed that you were holding the line up!....LOL

The lap bars releasing was a nice touch. It also startled guests that weren't expecting it.
