Yeah I think they will be finished today ahead of schedule. Looks like only 2 or 3 more pieces of track left. Also look at how the station is progressing.

I don't know, but it looks like they are going to go for the last piece today. Looks like they have one more section to go!

From the park's Facebook:
At 2 p.m. today, GateKeeper officially became a full-circuit roller coaster! Talk about a great way to celebrate T-72 days until Opening Day.

Wow! The second half of the coaster was built astonishingly fast. That's the way to do it and it is why B&M's are almost never behind schedule.
I just can't wait to see it in action with the first test runs coming soon! :b

By the way, there seems to be no trim on the camel-back hill after all (as some videos suggested) and I hope that the MCBR won't kill a lot of speed either.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.
