Stopped by to see progress on RR this week and found the ADA ramp being built. I believe this will also be the entrance, they chose a ramp over an elevator with the idea that this would also be easier for children, who make up the majority of their visitors. Also, the foundation for the station is poured, and being a steel building, should go up quickly once the ramp is completed. The cars have yet to make an aprearance, I'm told they are still in bubble wrap and probably will remain that way until the last minute. So, small update, and pictures...
New signs ready to be put up when the coaster is finished.
Trash cans will even get a make over too.
What looks like a wall in the background is actually the ADA ramp, you can see the bricks are cut at an angle.
Making quick work of it, should take about a week.
Once the brick is layed another crew will come and finish the ramp.
The ramp is literally right on the fence.
This red guy is to check proper clearance.
Train track had to be moved to clear the supports. It will make the train ride a lot more interesting.
They will actually dig down in this area to get more clearance under the track. You'll walk under here.
Foundation for the station is poured. The actual building will be a steel structure, should go up quickly.
Next week should start to see this look nearly complete. They said they are not setting any date, trying to get things done properly rather than rush. So check back next week for some major progress. Thanks for looking, leave a comment!
Okay, so I went and took pictures over a week ago...and never posted them. Well, got ill, my kids had school projects, and I'm lazy too. Now, back on track, I went down to take some new pictures and found that there wasn't a ton of progress. There was rain off and on, so maybe that contributed, plus the stuff they are doing is subtle and I don't think you'd notice it in pictures. So, I decided to use my "old" pictures and then maybe head back next week, maybe get a peek at the cars, which are on the track. They plan to leave the cars covered until all the surrounding work is complete, just to be safe. So, here's an update.
Cars on the track, I wish I was there to see them go on, but...
I see you!
Easy peasy steel building going up fast.
Ramp is ready to be completed.
Ramp is a little more complete than this, might have a picture of it, but until then...use your imagination.
A little better view of the station.
Export from Germany, if I could only tell from where?
I need a roll of that tape, lol. Okay, so look for big things coming up, should start to look complete soon. Thanks for looking.
Took a trip back to Adventure City for an update and found quite a bit of work going on. Different crews working on different projects like busy bees. The slabs for the loading/unloading area of the station are done, as well as the rebar and framing in place for the ADA ramp, which will be poured tomorrow. Gates are up, as well as the "Rewind Racers" sign. Some block walls are going in to finish off the area around the coaster and some wooden slats are being attached to the fence. They also started pouring footers to start finishing off the entrance. I'm told that the station should start getting skinned next week, and they are thinking April, possibly late March for the project to be complete.
More footers going in as they start to finish off the entrance and station.
Gates are up, slab is poured.
The skin should start going up on the station next week.
Sign is up.
Looking good from the street.
ADA ramp will be poured tomorrow. So, look for that update soon.
Privacy wall going up.
Block walls finishing off the border of the coaster.
Remember...there's TWO credits at this park.
Well, there you have it. Should be an update in the next week or so. Ramp should be finished, station should be skinned, work should be started on the entrance, etc.. Really getting close to being finished. Thanks for looking.
