Kennywood continues to construction on Sky Rocket, the park’s launch into the 21st century of roller coasters. After a very harsh winter, construction has finally resumed with plenty of supports rising out of the ground. And recently, track has been put into place during the bunny hop portion of the ride. Kennywood Connection has a great update on the ride.
Sky Rocket will feature an LSM launch that propels the coaster car from zero to 50 in just 3 seconds. This will all be done by high powered magnets. A very large portion of construction right now consists of setting up the equipment and programming system for the LSM launch. Pictured above, is the central control panel for the launch.
Sky Rocket construction continues. Be sure to check out the full update. Check back for more.
