They are wrong, Blue Fire is superb.

I'm 50/50 on that one @Gazza It's a good coaster but I wouldn't call it superb.  For a launch coaster it's lacking a bit of force.

 

In saying that Bluefire ver2. is going to launch faster and pull an extra 0.8g's so it should fix my issue of lack of force.

If the containers are for the coaster construction, would they store at the furtherest way point from the site? Because otherwise they would have to move them again. Unless there isn’t currently anywhere to store them without impacting the bus station 

There's a lot to consider here. My thinking is they will perhaps take over the top carpark outside BB studios. It'd make sense for them to utilise the driveway access behind Buzzsaw and over the train line into the old studio entrance. The entrance driveway can be diverted down the side road used for exiting with some small modifications, diverting all traffic around that top section of carpark and allowing unfettered access from the carpark to the construction site without needing traffic control.

But right now, we're still expecting earthworks, and like with Rivals, the first objects to arrive were the mounting plates \ bolts \ miscellaneous stuff for the footerings*

I'd suggest until we see large scale track arrival, they don't need to be walling off large areas of prime carpark, and storing down the bottom of WWW puts them out of the way of most guests, for objects easily moved about with forklifts.

At the very least the containers are German.

Like the time there was an evergreen shipping container spotted for ride construction and someone suggested people keep an eye out for 'evergreen' containers...

Its a possibility, but not definitive.

@Mc coaster Did say proper coaster. 😁

If we're counting Buzz, then we count Green Lantern. And if we're going that far, then we should count Arkham due to its proximity to the studio carpark. 

HWSW stands on an old carpark and part of the old Dreamworld Parkway, and if memory serves, the lines still exist underneath it.

Even though somewhere closer to the maintenance facility would make the most sense, this seems to be some lone containers that are being used to ship the larger pieces of TOT out to Magic Mountain

The electromagnets would be of some value I'd expect, as well as the substantial amount of copper wiring.
