Construction hiccups aside this does look like it'll be an intimidating ride, hopefully it rides in a similar way too.

Oh wow. I wasn't really a fan of the massive structure, but I really wonder how it's all going to look upon completion. The skyline is going to look so different. xD

I actually really like how the aesthetic of it fits in with Sky Rocket from that angle.

That is indeed a fantastic shot. I can't help to notice the supports seem more orange than yellow in that shot though.

God this thing already looks like a beast and it's not even half done.

I did not expect to have that straight section to actually be there in the finished ride... Looks weird, i'd rather would have seen something like a micro hill or whatever.

It probably helps insure there is enough clearance. At least that's how I perceived it
What are these for?

Yeah, that dive loop and straight segment wraps around the preexisting bridge!
