Looks like there's only a few weeks left of coaster construction, which is great since that'll mean they have plenty of time to work on theming and getting the ride tested before opening.

I'm thinking the lift hill could take a week or two to construct, but I imagine all track will be installed within the next 2-3 weeks. Train arrives early to mid August, testing begins by the end of August to early September.

I say the lift hill and drop will be completed by Saturday 12th August 2017...

Here's my pointless update for this weekend. (Honestly though, the coverage this week has been amazing and extensive!)

However, not everything has been covered! Which means there is actually something to mention :o

Grouting of the supports has started around the Incline Dive Loop and the work on the Non-Inverted Loop seems to be torquing - definitely sounds like it.

As I was in somewhat of a rush, here are my moving-car shots for the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd of July.

Okay so I lied, the car was stationary for the taking of this picture.

Driving alongside all of this is going to be awesome. Imagine racing the train along the bunny hills. you can do it in roughly two months. (Hopefully, all the construction fences are gone once testing starts)

The incline on the lift hill is going to be terrifying... for most guests.

There are only three main lift hill supports. and two of them are *partially* complete.

The lift hill track reaches the height requirement for almost every kids ride on the Gold Coast.

@themagician is that the last support to go up for the entire track?

No, there is plenty more track to be installed. The supports installed today just reach the height of GL at 33 meters, that means there's about another 25-30 metres of supports to go up on the one they were working on today.

You can see all the supports that need to be installed above.

There will be a trim brake (probably magnetic) to bring the speed down, followed by a block brake (mechanical) which is capable of actually stopping the train. Once a train enters this block brake, the chain lift will be declared empty and allow for the train in station to depart.

Once the station train has departed, it marks the station block as empty and the block brakes release the train to roll around into the station. The station is now occupied, the chain lift is occupied but the block brake is empty. Only in these conditions will the chain lift take the train entirely to the top and allow it to crest the hill. Once this train reaches that block brake again, the chain lift is then declared empty again and the cycle goes on...
