More pics from Saturday at SFOT

Looking at the last pic, notice the empty footers around the flying carpet section. Is the new steel track strong enough to provide the support needed to remove the extra set of supports along the edge? Or could they get replaced before the trains make a run?

Is it legal for a Dinn/Summers coaster to be that incredibly epic?

^ Good point... should it even be called a Dinn/Summers coaster any more? It looks like the flying carpet and the MCBR might be the only parts of the entire ride that even remotely resemble what D/S originally designed.

OH MY GOD! These are the BEST pics I have seen of the coaster. The South Side shots are magnificent.
Baby I already know that, I will be putting a lot of miles on my car next season. This looks like it will be the best coaster eva. I still like Voyage because i like coasters that go back in the woods and you have no clue what is going to happen next but his thing here looks like it will have elements I have NEVA encountered before.

The hill right after the dive turn under the lift hill looks like it will be as crazy as the Rolling Thunder airtime hill on El Toro!
