The track plus those hills kinda remind me of the jetski coasters. I have a feeling this might turn into a coaster where you're actually flying on a broom. :3

Track has now gone up the spire:



Interesting note: At the beginning of this video in particular, some markings have been discovered in the Jurassic Park area of the park for a potential now ride coming in the next few years. It could be a roller coaster.

I spy fins so I am assuming the launch system will be LSM

Certainly looks that way.

Anyways, here is a ground level view of the recently installed track pieces:

There's also lots more large track pieces sitting in a separate storage lot:

Looks like it will be a pretty big coaster. I'm bummed that Dueling Dragons is gone but I think this will be a good replacement.

This is shaping up to be one hell of a motorbike.

Yeah - really interested in how this will come together in the end. Good to see the dragon's being replaced with something equally interesting!

Time for a massive update.

First, some new aerial images of the ride. Looks like the trackwork is pretty much done for the most part:

Now for some ground level shots. First of the helix leading into the drop track building:

There's also a new steel structure rising around the brake run:

That concludes this update.

I just hope that this ride will have pacing, seeing as how frequent the launches are I think this will be even slower than Slinky Dog (Less than 33mph top speed)
1. Voyage 2. Intimidator 305 3. Maverick 4. Skyrush 5. Mindbender (Galaxyland) 6. Fury 325 7. Kumba 8. Goliath (Six Flags Over Georgia) 9. The Beast 10. Phoenix

Out of 139 creds

I'm still surprised on what looks like a double drop track. Certainly going to be something interesting. Perhaps it's there for extra capacity?

Probably^ Maybe a long show scene before the drop so two are needed?

Yeah, the actual reset mechanics on Thirteen are incredibly quick - however the showtime is also fairly short - so this would allow the show to start whilst the other track is preparing to drop I would think.

Do we know if the drop is the same distance as Thirteens or it is bigger/smaller?
