Not surprised, and the question now is when in 2023.
At the current pace the track will be done late September/early October.

If trains are ready they could be testing by Nov.

Maybe a soft opening in December?

Then the official opening in the spring when the park reopens.

I thought about photos, but I don't know that they do it justice. I plan to go back tomorrow so I'll see if I can get some angles that show what I'm talking about.
I was just thinking general progress pics. Doctor_Coaster may not post an update til Monday.

Not sure photos will ever do it justice. :)
Lots of tight/sharp snaps for sure.

One more blue Rail and over the building is complete.


Okay I'm going to try this. And separate posts I'm going to try to show how drastic this outer Bank is. So look at this picture then go to the very top you may have to enlarge it but you see the severe outward angle as it enters the outer Bank. Now look at the top three posts from the point where the tracks stop. You see they still maintain that drastic outward angle well as it makes a 90° turn at the same time. The top four supports have that banking and the fifth one down, what you cannot see in this picture it starts to level off. Then you get three supports in a steep downward angle as it straightens out and then I've got another picture coming.


This picture shows those top three supports as it comes down and straightens out you can see that it's straightens out then tilts slightly in the opposite direction comes all the way to the ground before it starts going back up to the double up. But the drop from the top of the outer bank with its 90° turn comes all the way down to ground level very quickly.



This is ground level you can see that it still has a slight angle to it and then it straightens out as it begins to rise you can also see that it comes all the way down to ground level.

This is a close up of the first picture if you look hard you can see the two outer Bank rails and then watch how quickly it turns and comes down.

Picture does not do this Justice you see the top of the double up and you see where it starts to come down on the right side you see the chili dip with its rails on there well in order to get into the barrel roll it has to go below rooftop level before starting to rise again to go over the building into the barrel roll. That's going to be one heck of a drop immediately followed by rolling around upside down. And earlier I showed the picture of the going over the roof. Pictures do not do it justice. Maybe Dr Coaster can get some better angles than I do with his videos. Hope this was informative and not too troublesome.

Picture number one. Look at the supports that are very close to the ground by the tree. Now follow them up to the top post. The top post leads directly into the second picture which is the stopping point. Look how high you go from the ground up the station level in such a quick time and all of the breaking must take place in the length of where you can see the track on the exchange. That's going to be some heavy duty breaking.

1. Entrance to barrel roll over the building and chili dip return.
2. Top of double up.
3. Chili dip

Awesome Pics... But in regards to the transitions... Keep in mind that this will have the smaller, 5 car trains.

Credit to Dr coaster and the Georgia coaster connection. Also, I drove by the park this morning and noticed that rails are now being installed further along the outer Bank.

The outer bank is complete all the way to the bottom. The double up downside is complete all the way across the roof. And the quad down is three quads complete.
