1) I think they should make the parking lot next to Soak City a parking sturcture.

2) Take out the parking lot next to the hotel.

3) Move the office buildings and the behind the sences area across the street.

4) With all that they can expand and add about 25 more acres of land to the park.

But that will never happen. :cry: Except for in my dreams. :br

I'm not even gonna start ranting about what Knott's should do, so to give us a little break, I'll post some of my pictures from Monday, some of them you might want to see! ;)
Image
First off, seems like the construction workers have a wierd fetish for 7-11

Image
That's a lot of rebar

Image
Two dumpsters, a cement maker, and dirt. What can get better than that?!

Image
Some of the already placed footers

Image
Possibly a tunnel?

Image
The old train station with some heavy machinery

Image
You can really see how far they've dug down when you see the Balloon Race platform that high up

Just to let you know, the following pictures were taken off property and I was in no restricted section to take these pictures. And now, what you've all been waiting for...

Image
What's that stuff way off in the distance?

Image
YES! It's track!

Image
Some curvy bits

Image
:lover:

Image
Look at all those supports

Image
One last picture

Well, there you have it. Hope you enjoy them!

Great Pictures! I would have gotten pictures of the track, but they had a sign that said lot closed so I did not risk it.

Anyone else think that the track color is ugly?
Anyways its good to see that they are making progress on Sierra Sidewinder. Hopefully It'll open this year.
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

Yes, it's very ugly.
I was hoping for green or blue.

I was hoping for blue as well. This track color just makes me feel blue and nauseous.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Like most coasters which people think are "ugly" as they lay in pieces awaiting vertical construction, it'll probably turn out to look good or decent once the ride has been completed.

People said the exact same things about X, Scream! and Silver Bullet. But they look good up close in person.

For the record, I think Scream still looks bad, and Silver Bullet's paint job wouldn't have been my first choice. But X does look nice.
