    I think the only bathroom they would remove is the one next to Tilt O Whirl.

    We need to look at the bigger picture . This was another collection type game.
    We are now in phase two : read into it. There allways is a phase three with the key word for a search engine . We need that key word or in this case key contact to email based off the convention connection sticker.

    There was another sticker I had saw today. It Said something like:
    Built in 12 minutes, Designed in 12 years.
    It was at one of the water fountains behind the wave pool.

    24 Minutes in the fourth study? I'm thinking 12 x 2 meaning 2 trains for the ride.

    Do we have a name?

    On 07/05/2011 the Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Company filed trademark paperwork for the name "SKYRUSH" for a products of beverage glassware, mugs and cups, T-shirts, sweatshirts, caps in Entertainment services in the nature of an amusement park ride

    In the voice mail is the following line:
    What a skyrush dude, hats off my friend.

    My two cents...

    I think that name is horrible, but unfortunately, if they have filed to trademark it, then it may be the name of this ride. I will hold out hope that it is perhaps a tag line or something to market the ride.

    Or, maybe I can hold out hope that someone over at HE&R will read this and agree that that name is terribly lame.

    I doubt this will be the name for the coaster. I have believed since the beginning of all of this, and have said MANY times, I do strongly believe a drop tower will be added also for 2012. This name has gotta be for the drop tower. I still strongly believe the name of the coaster will be astronomy related. Wouldn't SKYRUSH be an awesome name for a drop tower? For sure this isn't the coaster, cuz the coaster will likely be a space related name. So, this is finally the time Hershey is puttin in a drop. Now, my biggest question is, WHERE will Hershey fit it in. Will the Falcons go "Bye Bye" I hope so. Only time will tell.

    The only way that I could see us getting more than just the coaster would be if they included a new flat or two (like when Howler opened along with Fahrenheit). And even if we were to get a drop tower, it wouldn't look right in Falcon's spot due to its close proximity to the Kissing Tower. I could see a drop tower being placed elsewhere, just not in that spot. Another new flat, maybe. But I think that the new signage for Falcon is also an indication that it will be sticking around several more years.

    Right, I never said what I think was engraved in stone. Razz I do think SKYRUSH sounds perfect for a drop tower. I'm still thinking that the coaster will be astronomy related.

    21 days! Very Happy

    Lets say we do get a drop tower also, is it possible that the height limit is for it or is the 212 foot mark is locked into the coaster?

    The way the minutes read, yes.

    Attraction 2012 is to be supported by 32 columns to be located in a man-made pond currently in existence in the park. Attraction 2012 will reach a maximum height of 212.2 feet.

    So unless the supports we are seeing in the creek are for a drop tower then the height is for the coaster.

    The variance is for the coaster, not any other rides. Skyrush sounds very Hershey-esque for a coaster.

    I'm pretty sure that the 212 ft height limit is for the coaster, nothing else.

    Ok there are several reasons I don't think this will be a name after looking into it a little.

    First of all it is not a very good one. I sounds very generic, isn't a commen phrase at all, and honstly doesn't make a ton of scence.

    Second of all why would they hint at all the astronomy stuff across all the clues and then just completly cut it off. "Skyrush" doesn't even sound space like.

    Third of all and the one thats most intriguing unless I'm reading something wrong is the fact that both documents clearly state standered characters with no indication to font, size, or color. If this is the name of the ride the sign out front isn't going to be in Times New Roman its going to be designed. If they were intending on this being the name it would've been filed asking for the design such as Fahrenheit's logo instead of regular font like its slogan "97* and falling fast".

    How can something be very generic and not be a common phrase?

    It just means they are just trademarking the use of the word(s) relating to an amusement park attraction no matter what design. It is more broad than trademarking a logo.

    This is exactly what they have done for their other trademarks:

    http://tarr.uspto.gov/servlet/tarr?regser=serial&entry=76319438

    Logos are trade marked separately:

    Ok makes scence, I was actually looking for the documents on the other ones. By generic I meant cheap and boring. It just doesn't stand out or make an impact like Storm Runner or Lightning Racer.

    .

    While true, I highly doubt it given their past registrations and the time period in which it was filed. It is completely consistent with past years for this name to be used for something next year.

    I didn't know about the name contest at the time and probably would've voted for Rengeade too but "Thank you for expiriencing vertical horsepower, on Storm Runner" just sounds amazing.

    I like hearing "Thank you for experiencing vertical horsepower, on STORM RUNNER, and enjoy the rest of your day at Hersheypark!" Better than I like hearing "NOW GET READY! HERE WE GO!"

    If this coaster is indeed named "SkyRush" that just makes me think it is a launched coaster. When I go tomorrow I will look for further clues.

    I tried the phone number, but it just sounds like a fax machine.

    EDIT: they fixed the phone number, is leads to the same phone message as before

    The login box is hard wired to fail right now...

    The form calls:
    Code:
    <form id="client_login" name="client_login" method="post" action="/index.php" onSubmit="javascript:return test(this)">

    The javascript funtion test() is:

       return false;

    OK- so I wasn't nuts when I looked at the source code... I wonder what piece of info we're missing before we can get into the bathrooms...

    (BTW: I have to say it- we're wrong about SkyRush, and all the astronomy names... We are, in fact, going to be on BATHROOM: THE RIDE! The train's seats will all be toilets, and the ride will launch up the lift hill with a giant 'FLUSH')

    Rocky wouldnt tell me their involvement with RIT, and I asked why do the posters say UNCOVER THE TRUTH. He was shocked. he said does it really say uncover the truth? maybe someone defaced the poster. i'm just trying to run my mid-air excavation biz. I replied- It also gives a link to the Hersheypark Facbook page. Darn hooligans.... R U sure you didnt print that? It looks printed on. He replied= that's actually PRINTED on OUR poster?! you know what, i think i know what this could be. this could be some kind of marketin
    I then replied- Yes on your poster, what could the marketing be FOR that you just mentioned? Then Finally, Rocky back 2 me- i don't want to speculate publicly. i'll talk with jeff. thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    Client login box
    phone number


    I tried the phone number, but it just sounds like a fax machine.

    EDIT: they fixed the phone number, is leads to the same phone message as before

    The login box is hard wired to fail right now...

    The form calls:
    Code:
    <form id="client_login" name="client_login" method="post" action="/index.php" onSubmit="javascript:return test(this)">

    The javascript funtion test() is:
    Code:
    function test(oForm){
       alert("Invalid Login Credentials");
       return false;
    }

    OK- so I wasn't nuts when I looked at the source code... I wonder what piece of info we're missing before we can get into the bathrooms...

    (BTW: I have to say it- we're wrong about SkyRush, and all the astronomy names... We are, in fact, going to be on BATHROOM: THE RIDE! The train's seats will all be toilets, and the ride will launch up the lift hill with a giant 'FLUSH')

    ========-
    In reply to BATHROOM- THE RIDE. I think your RIGHT!! LOL. The slogan/motto can be, BATHROOM- THE RIDE! WELCOME TO t he ride that scares the CRAP out of you! LITERALLY.

    New construction update with the discovery of a new type of footer that matches up to the short supports next to Lightning Racer.

    Looks like one of the turns out near the old dam might be low to the ground from the looks of it.

    Nice update. Can't wait to get another look at the site this weekend. Expect another construction update after the weekend.

    EDIT:

    Rocky LaMarcus recently posted this to his Twitter account:

    someone mentioned jan van der velde....what's his deal? i hope we didn't send him an official neon green LMB t-shirt.


    I just asked Rocky how things were between him and O' Connell Plumbing & Drain and this was his response:

    i know fred well. part friend, part fan. i follow all their projects: guggenwatercloset, bilbaobathroom, fallingwashroom.


    My thoughts and how this is related to the project - "washroom" and "bathroom" - construction of new restoom facility.

    I may be thinking really hard about this but I think that the GUGGENwatercloset and the BILBAObathroom means that this new bathroom (assuming there will be one) will be very unique. Just look at a picture of the GUGGENheim museum BILBAO
    here-----> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Guggenheim-bilbao-jan05.jpg

    Maybe the FALLINGwashroom means that the first drop will fall into/over water.

    I know the GM's name is Frank O' Connell. That's the message that Rocky LaMarcus sent to me on Twitter. I guess "Fred O' Connell" is a new character being introduced to the game.

    Also looks like we've come to the point in the game where the flashing images appear:

    http://ocplumbingdrain.com/images/ocAni.gif

    One of the images seems to feature a pic of the area where the Comet Hollow restrooms are currently located. Remember how the Western Chute Out slides were featured along with a pic of Fahrenheit's track....mainly because the Chute Out would be removed in favor of FH? Looks like what I mentioned about O' Connell being related to a new restroom facility being constructed as part of this project is pretty much correct.

    EDIT:

    Brandon and Alex posted the images on the Project 2012 Facebook group so I thought I would share them here:

    The main thing I'M concerned with is the Image with the HALF barcode, and above it ALL the weapons fro the game CLUE. I'm getting from that, CLUE GAME WEAPONS+BARCODE(Right now only half of a barcode. :<( ) =A MEGA clue. I NEED THE OTHER HALF OF THAT FREAKING BARCODE!! Ughh. OCP is playin hard 2 get. Razz I hope we do get the other half very soon. Funny thing is, last night, I was lyin in bed, and I said to myself "I bet Hershey is gonna throw barcodes at us.... Can I tell the future?? I wish, I wld know what this thing is then. Razz

    The first pic is taken here, near the restrooms. The text "endofline." might indicate that this is where the station for the new ride will be, or it may indicate that this is where we will find the end of the barcode. Note that it is next to a bathroom:



    Is that bench located in the same area as the first picture? It looks like a different style of bench than the ones in the Google picture, but they may have replaced the benches since Google went through. My only guess for "hellotornadoman." is that "tornado man" might be a reference to Fred O'Connell (he designs toilets, and a toilet flushing looks like a tornado), who could show up on th bench. We also might find the other half of the barcode there, which will lead us to more information on "tornado man".

    The last picture should be fairly obvious: the bathroom in the area shown in the first picture will be going away.

    Two images weren't posted above. One is a better quality version of the CLUE+Barcode. The other is a picture of the same bench with the date 07.18.11. Someone or something is going to be on that bench on the 18th.

    Ooo I wish there was a time given (even in code). I'm actually going to be at the park Monday evening. I would love to actually witness something in person.

    EDIT:

    Forgot to include with my original post above:

    Aren't their SIX pieces in clue? Which one are we missing?

    2nd EDIT:

    Gosh I'm scattered today! The "End of Line" we could be looking at que location. Station is supposed to be where Tilt-a-whirl is. Break run coming into to Hollow from Skyview direction. I wouldn't want the line directly under the break run, so next logical place is the current bathroom location.

    (Hopefully I've said my peace until someone else posts now haha)

    Since the one pic mentions about "End of the Line", we could be looking at the ride entrance possibly. That would mark "End of the Line" unless it's the other end in the station. This relating to the ride queue and then the restroom symbol with a red line through it indicating that those restrooms will be demolished to make way for queue line space.

    Someone told me that the restrooms are being relocated to the current site of the games next to Looper's entrance. Of course this area will need somekind of restroom facility with three coasters in the immediate area.

    The end of the line could also refer to the last of the clues- Just a guess; not necessarily something that IS the 'last of the clues' but an idea.

    As for the johns, I'm starting to think we might have been given a clue that's telling us to stop looking THERE- as in: Everyone's been talking about restrooms (myself included) but could it also be a reference point to "No, it's NOT the bathrooms, but I'll place a clue HERE" sort of thing.

    Mabye our 'mystery' artitsts are telling us that we're going up the wrong path?
