Can we please stop talking about the tiny line in the middle of that section of track?

There's nothing installed there yet, so we have nothing to worry about. :)

From this angle, that element reminds me (in a good way) of the High-Five element on the new wooden coaster at Happy Valley Wuhan. Especially the description in the IAAPA video of going sideways through an airtime hill.

Yes!

And arguing with someone that works in a park and has significant knowledge of coasters and their operations......well, I guess those High School Diplomas are actually engineering degrees.

The webcam shows that they finished the middle of the last bunny hills, and started the first (twisty) one. I wonder what else they'll get done today?

Is it just me, but this looks incredible! An I305 crossed with an Expedition g force drop. Airtime hills and a ste.... drop. This is getting very intersesting.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!
