I think the riders are pale because the excessive g-forces made all their blood go their feet.

I'm about to leave to go to CP. It is a 10-hour trip from here. I'll be sure to take as many pictures as possible of any construction activities around Mav. I'll report back next week.

Going to CP tonight for Friday Saturday and Sunday, I'll post up some pics as well when I get back. Somehow I think that the suprise may be an opening earlier than June. I doubt it will be this weekend, but I can hope.

It def. wont be this weekend :)

But I could see it possibly opening before June (although the surprise was announced pre-delay so that wouldn't be it) since it shouldn't take long to remove the old track, and there were rumors they have the new track already, or it has almost arrived.

After that all that is left is testing, so it depends when the track arrives and how fast they work.

Early June seems accurate though.

^^^^ Some work is taking place currently... the track is sitting to the right of the crane, or is attached to the crane right now!

We also would have loved it no matter how bad it was, as long as it was within our perfered intensity level :lolr:

No way...where would they put the other inversion without taking out the heartline roll first?
