Very windy day at the construction site. Let’s see what’s going on this week.
It rained heavily last night and as a result, the construction site flooded again.
But that didn’t put a damper on the work!
That was a close one.
Since our last update, more track has been added and we now have a 90 degree turn going over Comet.
The last lift hill support is starting to go up.
Here’s a close-up at how it’s assembled.
This one should be as tall as or almost as tall as the other support.
It’s almost as beautiful as the Stengel dive.
More work is being done to the eletrical room and converters.
Right now the support is about half as tall as Comet’s first drop (around 40 feet tall).
I’d say in two weeks, we might have a complete lift hill.
The piping has been covered back up.
At the station, the wall has been covered and scaffolding has gone up.
Most, if not all the footers on the brake run look finished.
Is it me or does the lift support look like it’s on a slight angle?
At the station a lot of piping is in and what looks like an elevator shaft is starting to go up.
I wonder what the queue for Comet will look like?
Guidewires have been added to the first drop to secure it better.
This and the next photo was taken earlier today by Kirk Sponaugle. You can see that the construction crew is willing to work in just about anything!
This was put up in a matter of yesterday and today. If given the good weather, we might hopefully see the support done by later this week.
That it for this update. Expect another coming this Friday with one last look at the station area for the season.
