Any more progress. It's been 20 days. It's not SFMM, so there has to have been at least one shovelful moved. ;)

Here's a fresh photo, but still not that interesting.

The ride is done, and only the things around it remains. Looks like an awesome addition!

Here's a nice, weird, photo from the side. Proslide always does a great work with the supports of their mat racers, and this one is no exception!

It is interesting to see the launch and turnaround for this mat racer face the opposite direction of the downhill portion of the ride, since it seemed like this was going to be a clone of the model installed at Orlando's Aquatica. Either way, it will definitely be a solid addition to what appears to be a fantastic park!

I'm really excited to come back this summer and see what year 2 has in store. Aside from the new slide, will be interesting to see how operations are and how the plants have grown in to really sell that tropical feel.
