The two temporary supports should be removed some time this coming week. I believe the last piece was put in place between 4pm-5pm yesterday (and it gets dark here around 5pm now).

Hoping for another official construction tour within the next week or two so I'll be sure to post pictures as soon as that happens!

Oh ya, dinosaurs too:

Beautiful! The large spine kinda hides how massive it is. Looking at where the spine thins out at the bottom puts it into perspective. Wow, this thing is gorgeous!

That really is the best looking B&M to date, I say!

I'm not 100% sure I like that color scheme, but that lift hill shot is gorgeous! If it was a woman I would be all over it.

Just got back from a quick ride up to Wonderland to check on the construction. I figured I'd add a few more shots cause lets admit, who doesn't want to see more of this sexy sexy ride?

That's what I thought. Enjoy.

You can't really tell if Dragon Fire will be better or worse now that the course goes through that mess of supports.

Any thoughts?

^ Visually I am sure the sights will change, but I can almost guarantee that the ride will not :(

Still though, it's going to be quite the amazing sight to be going under this giant B&M.
