Is everyone ready for the weekly Fun Spot construction update? I am!

These were taken Sunday, so there might have been a little more progress since then. Either way, here you go.
IMG_0742.JPG
We have coaster track on site!
IMG_0743.JPG
Nothing new at the front (back) gate.
IMG_0744.JPG
More supports have showed up though, and some funky looking ones, too.
IMG_0745.JPG
I'm not entirely sure what this is, but it's getting some serious acupuncture.
IMG_0746.JPG
Something tells me this isn't part of the theming.
IMG_0747.JPG
They've gotten lots more done with the support structure for White Lightning!
IMG_0748.JPG
I imagine it won't be long before we see this thing go vertical.
IMG_0749.JPG
I do like how the supports are white.
IMG_0750.JPG
Waiting patiently to be attached to footers.
IMG_0751.JPG
Thus ends the "coaster supports" portion of the update.
IMG_0752.JPG
They've finished the foundation for the White Lightning station.
IMG_0753.JPG
More work continues on the lift motor house.
IMG_0754.JPG
They've added more to the brackets on the footers since last time.
IMG_0769.JPG
This is what one looks like up close and personal.
IMG_0755.JPG
Still pouring the footers for the Vekoma.
IMG_0757.JPG
Lots and lots of progress has been done on White Lightning. Just a few weeks ago, half of these footers were barely finished!
IMG_0758.JPG
Electrical stuff.
IMG_0759.JPG
Another look at where the Vekoma will reside.
IMG_0760.JPG
I really like the gravel underneath the ride look. A lot better than just having weeds.
IMG_0761.JPG
One of the top pieces for the Skycoaster arch.
IMG_0762.JPG
They've also started building the go-kart track expansion.
IMG_0763.JPG
A little perspective on where the turn around is for White Lightning compared to everything else.
IMG_0764.JPG
Speaking of the turn around, the footers have made it there!
IMG_0765.JPG
Getting ready to put the foundation down here I'm sure.
IMG_0767.JPG
That's it for this update, so until next time, BE CAREFUL!

Ok just got back from taking some more pics at the park, and not only has Freedom Flyer gone vertical, White Lightning has, as well! :b

DSCN7566.JPG
Just in the last four days (since the update earlier on this page), lots more track and supports have shown up!

DSCN7567.JPG
A couple guys working on White Lightning supports.

DSCN7568.JPG
Tons more track on site!

DSCN7588.JPG
Seats have also arrived for Freedom Flyer!

DSCN7569.JPG
They've gotten a lot more done on White Lightning supports, too.

DSCN7571.JPG
This support is getting ready to be raised.

DSCN7572.JPG
The Enterprise also arrived earlier this week!

DSCN7587.JPG
The parts are all sitting in a field across the street, sure hope nobody messes with them.

DSCN7573.JPG
And we have vertical construction!!

DSCN7574.JPG
On both coasters!

DSCN7575.JPG
They were busy putting up the 2nd support of the day.

DSCN7576.JPG
They pretty much ramped this project up to Ludicrous Speed.

DSCN7577.JPG
The two coasters are going to be in fairly close proximity to one another.

DSCN7578.JPG
This is going to look awfully different in a few weeks.

DSCN7579.JPG
Anyone want to figure out what goes where?

DSCN7581.JPG
They've gotten the gravel all the way up to this building, which is almost the entire length of the ride.

DSCN7582.JPG
More poles have also gone up for the go-kart track expansion.

DSCN7583.JPG
The bottom of the turn around is leveled out and the foundation has been started.

DSCN7584.JPG
The top of the Skycoaster is all put together now.

DSCN7585.JPG
The artificial pond is pretty much done.

DSCN7586.JPG
One last overview, can't wait to see the progress over the next several weeks!

Love the updates. I feel like White Lightning is going to be one of those small coasters that ends up blowing everyone away. Can't wait to get on it in November when I'm back in Orlando!

I'm hoping it's like Wooden Warrior in that regard b/c that ride is flat out fun! I'm excited for what looks like a great little woodie in Orlando.
