I also image it will be used if there needs to be an evac on the second lift.

There's going to be a troll throwing boulders at people under there.

Another update, as things are moving smoothly at the STR Construction Site. Straight from Cedar Point themselves, we have pictures and a new blog.

BLOG UPDATE

We're getting closer. Inching ever-so-slowly to May 15. We've talked about the signs of spring earlier, but just like leaves seem to just sprout up all at once, our ride cars at the park are doing the same:

[PHOTO INSERT OF IRON DRAGON TRAINS AWAITING INSTALLATION]

Ride vehicles are coming out of their winter rehab and onto the midways, which means we're almost ready to get them assembled and running again. We love it.

Speaking of spring and leaves, the leaves are now sprouting at Shoot the Rapids, as crews are planting trees, installing fences and cleaning up the ride site.

We've also been told that we're days away from filling the reservoirs with water. We'll start with the island reservoir and then move over to the mainland reservoir.

The water is pumped in through regular water lines, cycled through the filtration system and will then become the ride's means of movement and saturation.

Anyone know if you are able to use a gift card to purchase the Spring ticket? I would assume not since you can only buy it online, but I want to be certain. I have e-mailed them numerous times and they haven't answered.

When I checked out the webcam this morning, it looked like the filling on Millennium Island has begun =)

^ Don't think so because it is now filled all the way.

On my computer, I can still see concrete near the rock wall. Wouldn't it go all the way to there?
