The tower fluctuates between yellow, orange and red. The gondola is still the normal range of colours & patterns.

Full Leviathan update here (transfer track & maintenance bays have been installed):

About WindSeeker, are you sure that wasn't from last week? If you look a PCW_Nut's post on the other page, it says that last week the gondolas had the normal lighting package while this week the lights on the gondolas are off. Who's right?

This reminds me of I305, how the structure comes out of the ground below at an angle.

I'm not an engineer but it would stand to reason that that makes the structure a lot stronger and is probably why those two coasters appear under supported. If you just had a regular support at the bottom of the lift then wouldn't there be a lot of stress pushing it towards the station if a lot of additional supports weren't added? Someone who actually knows what the hell they're talking about let me know if I'm on the right track here or if I'm just talking out of my A$$? lol

^You are correct that the structure being in line with the direction the loads are being transferred allows the structure to be more efficient.

Oh hahah I wasn't saying they were copying them or anything, I'm just pointing out something I noticed.
