Not much track installed this week however there has been a large amount of supports installed, almost bowl shape in layout with a lot more on the ground yet to go into place.

Best photos over on parkz.com.au if you are wanting to see the latest photos...

Ok, so I will have a full update for all interested on Sunday oz time, however after seeing this picture from today, I am starting to wonder what they are currently drinking over at Mack to come up with this.....

How many times can you fit the track through the one loop??

Is that the start of a vertical loop?

Yep, however by counting the numbers on the tracks we believe it's a non inverted loop like flying aces. As long as the weather is ok tomorrow there should be more supports in place to see where it will be going.

So I thought I would share these updated photos of the construction happening on the Hyper Coaster at MW. I think its safe to say this will be one awesome coaster when it opens. (Photo credit to Gold Coast Theme Parks)

The start of the supports for the non-inverting loop with a maze of track around it.

supports covering the street.
18699435_1429298780463492_2444557877291220277_o[1].jpg
I would call it a spaghetti coaster!
18738388_1429298497130187_634422675811053193_o[1].jpg
Look of where the loop will be.
18739133_1429298883796815_6870076752044443015_o[1].jpg
The coaster will go all the way to green lantern. Not many pieces of track left in the car park. Hopefully more pieces arrive soon.

Looks like they forgot a support.
18739164_1432236033503100_7370761557136482470_o[1].jpg
More supports to hold the non-inverting loop.

Now that Green Lantern is closed for maintenance we are seeing the construction of the lift hill.

The first lift hill support.
18738484_1432235956836441_7151081773638900588_o[1].jpg
More supports.

Words cannot describe how glad I am they didn't go with the suicide squad theme I thought they were going to go with. (I have no idea why I thought that, though)
If it has :airtime: count me in!

Solid addition. However, non-inverting loop is a common term. They now have 3 high quality steel coasters now.
