On Monday, I went to Hersheypark to job shadow for my senior project that I must do in order to graduate. Along with interviewing, and shadowing, I was taken out into the park and was allow to view the Construction of the Seaquel. I'd like to thank the park for giving me the oppertunity to do this. I will post the shop pictures once I am finished with my project.
A lot has happened since October and it seems like construction is moving at a great pace. This is going to be the new restaurant that sits in front of the Shore wave pool.
In the distance is the wave pool building. It will house restrooms, pool machinery, and offices. In the bottom of the photo will be a bridge to access the cabana area.
If you want a cabana, you would need to stop by this building first.
The wave pool closer up.
This is the Intercoastal Waterway so far. The layout is just about 3/4 completed. You would be floating around the course in a clockwise direction and will last around 8 minutes long.
This is standing at Canyon River Rapids's entrance. You can see the section they need to finish.
The popcorn stand had to be moved in order to add a bridge to access the wave pool and restaurant. The workers were adding a retaining wall to hold the walkway.
This picture was taken near the second bridge to cross the lazy river.
This is looking at either the entrance or exit ramp for Intercoastal Waterway. if you look closely at the concrete along the ramp, you can see that it resembles wooden planks.
This is the loading and unloading area for the lazy river. Exiting riders will float into the far right canal to exit while loading passengers will enter into the center one.
Another close up of the wave pool building.
The deepest section of the wave pool.
This is most of wave pool. Come May, this view will be filled with a lot of sun bathers and swimmers.
Looks like they are ready to lay down another section of concrete for the Intercoastal Waterway.
