Yet, hat filled trains were dispatching from Fury on my last visit.

Huh. We've got it lucky, I guess. Most every time I'm on Coaster at Playland, and somebody's got a cap on, the ride op
just advises the rider to take their cap off, as "they might lose it." And that's it. The rider usually stuffs the cap in a back
pocket or in the jacket, etc. like Chuck would have done.

And there are caps at the bottom, inside the open areas of Coaster, lol. ;) But it's not started a No-Caps-Period policy.

And to add, I think I would rather be 'hit' by a soft cloth cap, than a cell phone, mid-ride.

In addition to hitting the last night of Howl-o-Scream, I took some photos for another InvadR update. This might be the last one of the year, unless I can squeeze in another when the park reopens for Christmas Town.

They've made quite a bit of progress since the last update.

One last train ride to check out InvadR? We'll see.
002.jpg
The train is getting ready for Christmas Town.
003.jpg
They've even put up some Christmas trees, sans lights.
004.jpg
Looks like those little footers have started to grow.
005.jpg
They have a ways to go yet.
006.jpg
Lots of work over at the tunnel

Here's somewhat closer look.

The worker's water-jug stand got some steel.

I do believe this is some "theming." Call it a hunch.

From the looks of that tower, the villagers are getting ready to fend off the Vikings.

The construction wall is now completely blocking the entrance to LeScoot, which has been closed all during Howl-o-Scream.
011.jpg
But they did provide another hole for curious people like us.
012.jpg
The little "shed" is coming along.
013.jpg
Don't impale yourselves on those sharpened posts on the right.
014.jpg
They've added some wooden track since last time.
014a.jpg
Here's a closer look
015.jpg
It's looking nice and curvy.
016.jpg
Let's move on to the bridge by Alpengeist.
017.jpg
Looks like another tunnel to me.
018.jpg
Here's that curvy bit we saw earlier from another angle.
019.jpg
A closer look.

That's all for InvadR. Whew! Glad I sprung for Quick Queue today.

One last look at the Rhine River trestle while the leaves start to turn. That'a all for now.

Now that InvadR has gone vertical, I'm genuinely excited.

Thanks for the great photos and update, Chuck! I'm stoked!

I'm already considering making the trip down next May. I might take a week off and hit both Kings Island and BGW.

Seeing Invadr going vertical is getting me excited for this as well. I considered going to BGW this year but hearing the announcement as early as they made it made me wait until next year. I haven't been there in like 3 years and that's too long between visits since I live 4 hours away. It seems like they've made a lot of minor improvements over the past few seasons as well.

Bottom line is I'm more excited for a small GCI than I should be because it gives me another reason to get to a fantastic park (possibly my favorite) next year.

I guess I wasn't aware that InvadR would be prtially steel-supported. Interesting. I think this is the perfect addition for a nearly perfect park.

I think InvadR is going to be one of the underdogs this year that makes a big impact. The theming is going to be incredible and should provide a nice ride with the tunnels and ride interaction
