    First Drop Intensity Ejectors Too short Harness

    Skyrush has world class airtime, strong and sustained intamin ejector, its also very intense and has great pacing, but it needs a bit more moments of airtime, and obviously the restraints are horrible, i also found it to be a little short

    The truth is that I did not really enjoy Skyrush. I had no idea how to ride it, so the lap bar crushed my legs. And I only got one ride. I really want to ride this again, because on paper this coaster should be one of the best designed and intense coasters in the world. Five moments of ridiculous ejector airtime, awesome positives, and several whippy moments, all in an awesome location right next to Comet. Though I did not personally enjoy the ride, I respect the ride's daringly intense design so much that I'm giving it a 9 anyways.

    First Drop Capacity Pace

    The fact that Skyrush's lift hill puts some launch coasters to shame says it all really. This ride is an utter balls-to-the-wall sprint from start to finish; threatening any guest sat in the back row left seat with an ejection across into the next state. A consistent, ludicrous adrenaline rush that only gets better each time you ride it.

    Airtimes Lap Bar Intensity

    Skyrush is the only coaster I get nervous before riding each time, and the main reason for that is the insane drop. I can’t even begin to describe the drop on Skyrush, it is incomparable to any other ride, basically there is a small kink during the drop, which provides one of the strongest moments of ejector, making this drop my favourite element on any coaster. Directly after the drop you enter a high speed, 5g turn which also has remarkably strong laterals, folding you over to the side. The ride then flies into a low to the ground but outstandingly sustained airtime hill which is also probably the strongest airtime moment I have experienced, and the fact it’s so sustained makes it even more mental. In between the two large airtime hills there is a low to the ground, intense turn which I actually greyed out on during many rides. The second hill is very similar to the first, but then the ride goes into another intense turn, throughout the turn laterals build up, and when you enter the Stengel dive there is a violent push of laterals which is bordering on painful, and that combined with a brief moment of ejector makes for one of the most intense elements on any coaster. The ride then goes into a sudden bank, which has another moment of eminent laterals. The twisted hill provides a weird combination of force as you are thrown upward, forwards and from one side to another in such a short amount of time. For me the ride ends with the final airtime hill which is just as strong if not more strong than the first 2 hills. The coaster then navigates some less intense turns just to get to the brake run, however by this point the ride is essentially over is it doesn’t affect the experience for me. Also the restraints are great as the are so open.

    Airtimes First Drop Intensity

    Restraints didn't bother me on my 5 rides. Body types may differ but I found very little discomfort among my rides. Sit in the back left wing seat and go arms up for the ultimate experience. That first drop is bonkers. POVs do not do this ride any justice. Looking at it off ride doesn't either. Easily the best coaster at a strong coaster park. Currently sitting as my number 3 overall coaster and far and away the most intense coaster (beats I-305 for me). Ejector air everywhere on this thing.

    Airtimes First Drop Ejectors Rattle Discomfort

    My 100th coaster! All 5 rides I got on Skyrush left me feeling absolutely pumped and feeling nothing in my legs. But that isn't a bad thing! If anything, I'd say the lap bar makes the ride even more intense than it already is. It ended up hurting so much that when I went to ride Sooperdooperlooper afterwards, my legs still hurt! I kind of surprised I liked it as much as I did. It is a very intense ride, and in some ways, could be compared to I305, a ride that I like, but not as much as others. However, I thought Skyrush did everything better; The airtime, the whippiness, and the drop were all superior to the same things on I305. I just thought like Skyrush was a better ride than I305 and most of the other rides I've ridden. However, I will say that the left side of the train is far smoother than the right side of the train, as it was rattly almost to the point that I couldn't enjoy it. Yet still, the layout itself made up for it!

    Airtimes First Drop Ejectors Too short

    Best airtime intensity in the world, extraordinary. An amazing ride twisting through a tight compact layout, with killer airtime, and sitting in the back row on that drop feels like a car crash.

    Airtimes Pace Intensity Too short Lap Bar

    Skyrush, or “Thighcrush” as some coasterfans call it, is a coaster that Hersheypark somehow managed to cram above and around their unused Spring Creek. Skyrush is absolutely insane with a believable -2 G’s on the second airtime hill and 5G’s in the first turn, and the Stengel dive is amazing! However, the ride ops like to staple people on Skyrush, which can make for a very painful ride. Overall it’s my favorite coaster at Hersheypark far and away, but I always make sure to get as much room as possible on the lap bars.

    This ride is very intense and the airtime is incredible! It also has very strong laterals that are borderline unsafe. The first drop is incredible because of the kink in it that just tries to throw you out. The airtime is strong on all of the hills and the ride sustains its forces well in the turns. The restraints are a little uncomfortable but I did not find them too painful and the pain is worth it for the insanity of the left wing seat.
