Skyrush was built as Hersheypark's huge project entitled Project 2012. The ride was proposed to Derry Township in 2010, the beginning of the project's campaign, and ended in 2011. Skyrush was announced to the public on August 2, 2011 where the ride would've been standing at the time. On August 15, 2011, construction officially began when the goldenrod coaster tracks reached the park. In December that year, the crew posted a webcam for viewers to watch the progress online. On May 2, 2012, Skyrush was completed and officially began testing. On May 26, 2012, Skyrush officially opened and gained more attention to Hersheypark. The ride suffered maintenance issues later in 2012, and was closed for the season. It reopened April 2013.
Riders go up a hill, then go down it and turn right. After a short bunny hill, riders lean towards the left and turn 360 degrees to another bunny hill that empties of right. After going 360 degrees, riders go full tilt on a bat wing then lean leftwards and rightwards on a series of mini bunny hills. After the last hill, riders go up a smaller hill and curve leftwards to a flat area. The ride then empties out into the station.
