Hey guys, this update is a little different than usual. Unfortunately was unable to do today’s normal update, but thanks to my friends Harry, Matt, and Walter this update was able to continue on as scheduled. Thanks guys!
The Stengel Dive is finished!
That is one hell of a transition!
I can believe we missed this and thought it was an ordinary hill. It kind of took us by suprise.
Just doing some random tightening of the bolts for the lift I guess.
The brackets that will connect the lift hill to the large concrete block have been delivered.
The supports for the turn over Comet have been added. It’s hard to tell how steep the angle will be though from this photo.
I don’t think Intimidator 305 does a turn this steep.
Two pieces at once?? Now they’re just showing off! 😛
I estimate this turn to be at least 110 to 115 degrees steep.
It really has people looking when they’re driving along Park Blvd.
Two more track pieces.
I love how it looks like it curls up the hillside in a way.
I wonder where these could be going?
That makes a total of 6 new track pieces waiting to be installed. Should be interesting to see how this ride will come together this week.
Shouldn’t be long until they get down here.
Arrggg! Hoist the colors!!! (pirate accent). 😛
That turn is going to be higher than I thought.
Quite a bit of the ride is already together. Still much more to go!
The next set of photos were taken by me on 12/17. Much of Looper Games has been gutted. Looks like it might not return as Looper Games at all in 2012.
There’s a 3 foot deep hole in Comet’s queue line. I wonder how they are going to redo the line?
Skyrush’s first drop literally towers over Comet Hollow. The cool thing is that it still has 40 to 60 feet more to go!
The station is coming together nicely.
Quite a few of brake run footers are done.
The first drop also is very visible over Founder’s Circle as well.
Even the Stengel dive is visible from here.
That’s it for this update. Thank you guys so much for going out and helping get photos for this. I should be back to do one or two more updates before Christmas.
