@themagician yeah good point, probably more to do with that, guess I'm just desperately trying to rationale why it's taking them so long to announce the damn thing.

I imagine it might be to do with the lift hills locations being so close to GL, and with it still being school holidays for some states, they don't want to close the ride when they can install other sections of the ride. It might also be because they don't need a massive crane just yet (or it might not be available yet) so they are starting with the lower sections of the track. So in conclusion, no idea.

Who do people think decides the order the track gets delivered in?

Much like when you put together your IKEA couch at home, the Hypercoaster probably comes with assembly steps and instructions :P

Would be interesting to know the construction order, but I'm assuming they would be focusing on the lower sections first as the taller sections of track require a crane, more workers ect.

Mack rides decides the order of delivery and construction.

The park would probably also have a say though, seeing that GL will need to be closed for the parts close to that, and they would want to do that out of peak season.

Any chance another piece will get put in?

Patience will get you far in life

And by in life I mean in rep

I feel like the pieces that have been put in place definitely make up an airtime hill

Here are my pics from today - not as good as the ones above but was getting dark and the kids were getting restless.

Did not realise the sheer size of of this until I saw it in person - definitely going to be an eye opener.

On a separate note, returned to the car to see this:

Construction is mainly dictated by access to the site. pieces will go in so long as they don't stop other pieces from going in. the higher parts will be later on in construction, but some high parts may have to go in earlier simply because of the difficulty of getting those pieces into position when others are already in position... if that makes sense...

I think before it opens they are likely to install another piece or two.  I'd expect that to be all though.

Thanks for the info☺

Based off this? The only thing you could confidently rule out from that is that it's not the lift hill (unless your TPSN).

Looking at the photo from a distance the far left support at the top looks like its angled a fair bit, which means the track would have twisted. But i was wrong and didn't know how to delete my comment.

I almost got the money shot this morning.   I was having my morning coffee when the construction crew just started to lift the track that connects to the temporally braced support when it started to rain.  They stopped the lift and I had ran out of time and had to go to work.

5 new containers were swapped over this morning and they opened the doors of 2 of the 5 doors while I was there.  Both containers were ½ loaded with Mack crates and 1 piece of track that sat on top of the crates in each container.
