Ooo I see some fresh dirt piles there! A bit trivial, but I'm really looking forward to seeing what kind of landscaping they do once the ride is complete. A bit of vegetation could make that strip of land quite attractive.

As said by others over the last few days, it's supports week. Mainly for the non-inverting loop, but some for the dive into the loop as well. 

The support that's outside the fence is now in (just the first segment).

I would not be surprised if the supports for the lift hill went in very soon. It looks like they're waiting on more track pieces, the pieces that have been sitting in the compound a few weeks are still there, and only one container is on site. There's no shortage of supports though.

 

@jack.cit's hard to get good pics of that area, as it will be for the rest of the coaster's run back to the station after the helix. Got a couple.

 

I expect today's will be the non-inverting loop supports going vertical.

If it's not about the coaster construction (and you talking about you following the coaster construction doesn't count) don't post it here.

 

Not targeted at any one person, just been cleaning house in this thread AGAIN is all.

The pole is temporarily connected to a pole from the helix. Lots more thick poles (already connected together) on the ground both inside the fence and on the road. If they're not working tomorrow then Monday will be "non-inverting loop support day".

 

The helix exit looks like a smaller version of the twisty airtime leading into the helix. So it exits the helix by making a right handed dive turn.

Pics from late morning:

Still waiting for that middle support piece. Despite appearances, there isn't an alignment issue with the airtime support.

Not sure where that support on the right went later in the arvo.

From Green Lantern queue. Note line-of-sight across swamp to the dive into the n-i loop.

Arvo pics:

Maybe that pole from the morning pics is the side pole on the big support here?

Showing the progress of the track coming out of the helix.

Best I could do of the new supports. If the main support pole is taking the weight, we're sure these supports are for the airtime hill leading into the non-inverting loop?

Looks like a rocky area at the bottom of the non-inverting loop?
