Yes, vey nice. You can clearly see the lift hill turn around and the turn out of the station and up the lift. Can't wait for vertical construction.

That's Zero G [heartline roll].  If it was zero degrees, there would be no roll. :wink:

So, when do you think it will be visible from outside the park. If at all. Of course you could always take reed rd  I suppose. I was thinking more from the lake area off 537.

I dont think you could see it out of the park. You cant even see Scream Machine, or Nitro outside of the park.

I think there's a good chance you'll be able to see it over the lake once its complete... You can see Batman, The Chiller, Big Wheel, Ka... it's possible... I guess we'll have to wait until it's topped off!


Yeah, that sucks about Chiller...I hate to see it like that. Hey, so we should get a group picture or something ok. I'll call you later!

Wooden coaster construction is so much more fun to watch than a typical steel coaster.
