Sorry I have nothing else to contribute at this time. Other than I am really looking forward to whatever this is going to be. At least we have SVen to tie us over until this beauty opens 8)

You can see some footers poured, you can see the rebar metal that they turn into footers being assembled, you can see a crap ton of land prep and digging all over. They appear to be moving in between Vortex and Timber Wolf Falls now with tree removal and digging. There were also a couple of holes in between the river and Minebusters Queline.

I’m surprised they’ve removed that much track from Vortex. Without context you would think the ride is being torn out.
Steel: 197 / Wood: 33 / Total: 230
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

The yellow excavator is piling down, likely to bedrock, to support a heavy load (lift hill?) They are not simple footers, usually dug out, that can hold a section of track. Of course, if the soil is weak, they might have to pile the whole coaster. Nice shots!
If you could get the company name (such as Anchor Shoring) not brand (like CAT or John Deere) of those excavators or even pickup trucks, I might be able to get some info. I work in the trade here in Ontario. PM me.

I am really, really, really curious as to why construction is starting in January, 2018 for a coaster opening May, 2019... Valravn started in October, 2015 to open in May, 2016. This is really strange.


Banshee construction started before the season as well, correct?

Also, they couldve started early so that vortex can be open by seasons start, instead of having to close the ride early for construction come September/October.

What are the odds this will finally be the coaster they use the name 'Centurion' for? Or maybe 'My bottom lip is oddly disproportionate to my upper lip and I'm not sure why'?

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Centurion doesn't make sense to me... there is no Roman theme in the park.... and CW has been all about Canadiana theming lately. My bet is something Canadiana.... or mythical... or both
1. Steel Vengance 2. Maverick 3. Behemoth 4. Leviathan 5. Millennium Force

But mythical isn't exactly Canadian either.
