Didn't Troy's lift hill collapse during construction as well?

This isn't the first time something like this has happened during construction. It's a setback, but I'm sure RMC and their engineers did their homework so the final structure wouldn't do this.

I think it looks like they built structure than they did. The pics from before made it look like there was a lot of loosely supported structure at the top. If the loosely supported structure at the top buckled, it may have made a chain reaction that brought down more of the structure with it. Once the ride is done, there will be no more loosely supported structure, so the ride should be able to support strong storms.

Not sure on Troy, perhaps it's more common than I think with wooden construction.

No doubt that the design is likely sound, but it is just wild that all three of those sections came down. For sure a chain reaction due to the unsupported top members... I'm sure in those gusts, created a pretty huge moment on whatever was supporting the "vertical cantilever" in the winds, causing failure at the point and creating the chain reaction on the rest of the structure.

Sucks, regardless! That can't be any fun at all to figure out how to repair/rebuild, as things are typically build in a precise order for a reason.

^Troy's lift hill did indeed collapse during construction. This also happened during the construction of Robin Hood at Walibi Holland, where the first left turn completely collapsed and had to be rebuilt.

Let's also not forget about the Colossus fire...

Yes, it sucks when stuff like this happens, but don't fool yourself into thinking that parks or ride manufacturers don't have a contingency plan for incidents like these...

I kind of remember that now that you posted the pics of it, thanks! (Troy)

Robb,

Absolutely! It's just unfortunate and i'm sure given the structure (looking busy with the other segments around the lift), will complicate the re-assembly of the lift structure a bit more than say, Troy. But not impossible, of course. Those guys in the field doing the work are amazing at what they do to figure things like that out with the help of the manufacturer. I have worked with some erection crews on some pretty crazy rigging/lifts/assemblies and their problem solving skills are top notch for complications along the way.

Looking forward to see this project complete!

The works last in a place where the construction was not damaged. The first elements of the track are already in place.

Saw this on Twitter. Apparently "the park shared it" but I can't find the original post and not sure I should link to the account I found it on. Stunning nonetheless.
