Interesting... We were actually just at Hershey this weekend, and saw a significant amount of construction, and a boatload of track. Wondered what it was for! Sounds like a cool new ride - looking forward to it!

Maybe I'm just being jaded..... but it does not seem that different from their current selection of coasters which mostly depend on drop and hieght effects for their thrills. Whoopity doo..... more of the same.

I am glad Carowinds has more land options..... hope they do something nice with it. A Hotel within walking distance of the park would be a smart move. Also moving their Camp Ground into that area so they can expand into the campground for the park is a possible option. Using it for parking so they can expand into the parking lot is an option too..... I think they could rework parking and make it more convinient and save space for other things too.

I'm sure Skyrush will be good, but I'm not feeling this "wing seating" thing. Can someone explain how it's really much different from the seating on the B&M dive coasters?

Plus it's confusing the meaning of "wing rider," which will mean something when a certain park in the south finally gets around to making their 2012 announcement.

Although the wing coaster term Hershey is using, it really is not any different from the style on a floorless coaster like a dive machine. But still, it will be some difference from the floored seats, and something fairly new to an Intamin Coaster, especially an Intamin Mega Coaster.

Holy Cow, I feel SO bad for the crew at that new coaster at Hershey Park. Imagine the the nightmare it is going to be to make people go to the proper seats.
