All park employees had "RUSH The Hollow" t-shirts on and were required to wear them up until the time of the announcement.
A cherry picker...hmmm wonder what that's for.
The crowd waiting for announcement time.
The characters get in on the action.
Looks like the cherry picker was used to raise a red balloon depicting the height of the new coaster.
How about a meet-up with Rocky LaMarcus, the Ride Institute of Technology and Jan Van Der Velde?
And there you have it - the "official" logo of our brand new scream machine! SKYRUSH!
And here's some of our video coverage from the announcement as well:
I will also be featuring a Photo Documentary of Comet Hollow in its current form. We will also be following the construction of SKYRUSH throughout the remainder of the season as well as through the off-season all the way to opening day! I'll also have our "first" video update after the announcement, so expect that coming soon!
