I'm no expert but with them working on the braking area I'd say these supports are for the return to station not the bottom of first drop.   Maybe they will complete the circuit from where the current track is to the brake run before starting on the higher sections which will need larger cranes.

Couple more pictures of the pieces installed today, as well as some of the other components, and you can begin to how this will flow through from the S Bend.

It will turn sharply from here, getting close to the ground

Continue underneath the taller footings

And then I believe heading towards this point

Couple more angles of the new section today:

Some of the pieces waiting to be installed:

And you'll see that this is piece 81, to give an idea of how much will happen before and after this point

This taller support was installed today also

First break run pieces have been installed also:

Part of the fencing has been damaged also:

And finally, I just love how tight the turns are on these pieces of tracks. Can't wait to see them installed

Amazing pictures! Thanks so much :D

Now the speculation begins on the next element. I'm hoping for either an airtime hill, or as it looks from the pieces in the car park, maybe this will be the location of the Zero G Roll (assuming those pieces are for a Zero G Roll).

Hmmm so after looking back at similar elements to Flash at Lewa Adventure i think MWs coaster is going to be more intense. If you look closely at the twisty section of Flash you can see that none of the track pieces that make up this element have a reinforced spine as opposed to the twisty section of MWs coaster.

You can also say the same with the cork screw element

As great as these coasters are, that element isn't what you'd call graceful! Very very interesting shaping :blink:

It's all about perspective. Move 5m to the left and the shape is different.

Damn! Just landed at LAX and what a pleasant surprise to read about and view the new section being installed. My jetlag is cured, I'm pumped! 👌👌👌

Coming together real nice, thanks for the pics people. Is it just me or is this shaping up to look like a rather extreme ride...?
