Skyrush is an Intamin hyper roller coaster located at Hersheypark in Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA. The ride was opened on May 26, 2012. It is one of two wing coasters made by Intamin. It features a different train style from B&M Wing Coasters and the Accelerator Coaster Furius Baco.
It has a similar layout to Intimidator 305, just smaller.
Design[edit | edit source]
Skyrush features an 85° drop and five airtime hills. The ride uses a cable lift to ascend the first hill. It is the tallest, fastest, and longest coaster at Hersheypark, however it will be overtaken by Candymonium when it opens.
Trains[edit | edit source]
2 trains with 8 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row for a total of 32 riders per train. Skyrush's trains use over-the-shoulder lapbars that tighten on each drop. Since this has resulted in extreme pressure on rider's thighs, it has given the ride the unfortunate nickname of "Thighcrush".
