As seen above, track work for the indoor section has been completed. I was at the park today and have my own Photo update including photos of the Rhine drop and the station work.

The "support" near the Rhine looks like a drill..... Most of the footers (probably 70% or more have been pour and/or completed) either waiting for curing or ready for track erection.

Now on the the pics.

AWESOME PICTURES! Thanks a lot! Verbolten is comin along great. And maybe the reason its going up so fadst is that they want to test all the special effects before opening! Just my 2 cents.

I think they want the building ready before first snow. But I wonder how loud it'll be in there, seems like if it has an Intamin rattle and sound FX and people are screaming, it'll rupture people's eardrums.

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

They are, though they're using Intamin-esk track for most of the event building. Not sure if Zierer found a way to cut out the rattle.

^There's a lot more related to rattle than just the track type. Seriously.

And people scream in any given indoor coaster on the face of the planet. And a handful of them have soundtracks blaring in your ears. And do you see eardrums rupturing left and right? No. Why would they build something that did that?

The Intamin rattle isnt caused by track type :lmao: . Its caused by the wheels on the train.

Oh. :roll: Though I guess Busch has it covered, in their plans they have some walls breaking up the building.
