Kennywood’s Sky Rocket looks to be about ready to open. As you can see from the video below the coaster has had test runs:
As I said in my previous posts, I think Sky Rocket will be a strong addition to Kennywood’s loopless lineup. It will boast all of the ingredients of a solid modern looper. Elements include a launch, two vertical drops, a corkscrew and a barrell roll. The twisting banked section and the repeating camel back hills towards the end look like a lot of fun too.
I ranked Sky Rocket at 5th in my Top New Roller Coasters for 2010. More on Sky Rocket at Kennywood.
