Yes and actually that image above is currently hooked up to the webcams and they're actually installing more track pieces at the moment.

It's such a cool concept. Not only a great idea, but the ride itself looks really good too.

I just have to share this:

This is Cedar Point's new cover photo.

It really is going to look amazing.

Also the roll through the gate it down and half of the diving loop/ turnaround is done. It can be seen on the constantly refreshing images above.

Full Train is creeping on to the main track. The first 2 cars have been pulled through the first turn already but has not gone any farther than that yet.

They're painting the keyholes and also this is WindSeekers First ascent to the top of the tower at Cedar Point.

Simply amazing. Cedar Point is going to have quite the impressive entrance area- no better way to enter an amusement park than to have that soaring over your head.

I believe loading and unloading is done on both sides of the train. Here's Swarm's station.

The line goes under the station and you get the choice of which side you can enter. Then stairs go up around the outside up into the sides and into the station. On Wild Eagle the exit was at the very front of the station and both paths ended up neeting up with each other.
