BGW also posted this really cool video of InvadR on their FaceBook page:
Thanks again for the report, Chuck! I'm sad to see so many trees gone, but I couldn't expect much because no park makes an effort to work around trees anymore (not even SDC or Dollywood). I understand they need to clear trees t o make room for staging and for equipment to work safely on the job site, and that it reduces construction cost and time, but it stinks that the ride won't be immersed in the woods.
I get they can always plant trees, and with this being BGW, I have faith they will, but it will be many decades before they replace the woods that were there before InvadR. A huge part of me wonders if they'll be able to plant trees on much of the land, because the land is terrace-like with steep grades between levels. I don't think they can safely plant trees on grade that steep in fear of soil erosion, nor do I think they're permitted to (unless it was part of the soil conservation plan in the blueprints leaked before the announcement). I might have missed something and would love to be wrong.

The real POV makes the ride look way more appealing than the animation did. It looks like it has a nice pace!

Years ago when I skied at Mont Tremblant, Canada, poutine fries were about the only food served around the mountain. Pretty tasty and better than the Trader Joe's version introduced in NY last year! (The Mediterranean-style fries you mention sound a bit British with the malt vinegar!)
Great, fun report Chuck. As always, you have a way with words!
Well, I'm sold! That looks hella fun. Lots of good airtime is very clear from the PoV, just as promised. Also, I bet there are some nice laterals, even at the top of the lift! I'll bet with such short trains, they'll really be able to crank them out. Shorter trains = less time needed to get it under way. Sure it won't be on par with the B&Ms capacity wise, but Tempesto isn't awful to wait for and it's only 1 train!
Also, I really can't wait to see what this looks like once Busch gets their world famous landscapers in there. Looks like they're already starting to put down the "foundation" for some nice greenery, and possibly some nice flower beds too!
