The ride is not listed on their attractions list for their opening events this year. The ride was plagued with issues during its inaugural season, capping off with broken axles near the tail end of Hershey's summer season.

Here's a basic rundown of 2012 for Skyrush:
-Station space issues
-Capacity problems because of same side loading/unloading
-Lift hill problems due to tightness, and it lifting way too fast
-Lap bars and the stapling issue from the 4.5G crunch after the 1st drop
-Axle failures 3/4 of the way through the year

Yeah, even i305 didn't have that many issues. Hershey decided to close the ride early in order to fix the issues that plagued the ride throughout the year. There haven't been any pictures at all pertaining to the ride during the winter, so who knows if Hersheypark has been doing anything to it this offseason.

Ouch. These things have got to be killing Intamin's reputation in the industry. :-/

Well there's a rumor going around that Cedar Fair has decided to take a step back from going to Intamin with their coasters, which could possibly explain why we have Leviathan at Canada's Wonderland.

I was not a fan of Skyrush. It looks awesome, but the ride is awful.

Basically how I felt about the ride, too. But it mainly was something along the lines of:
