Have we figured out what the cathedral supports at the top are for yet?

WOW! This coaster is much larger than I was expecting. That is a really long lift/launch hill!! Can't wait to see more!! They are constructing this at a rather quick pace!!

^Don't forget the quadrupile down and the finale will be included in that shot! Currently the prelift looks so weird all half built like it is!

Can someone confirm that the loading platform and queue house are almost like two, distinct buildings? It looks like the enterane/gift shop? Is in the foreground and the station itself is angled to it but still connected. I could be wrong but the angle is making me think this.

^The loading station is skewed from the entrance although I didn't pay close enough attention to see if they are connected together. My guess is that they will be.

My bestie and I have tossed around the idea of visiting Dollywood for years now. This coaster has sealed the deal. We'll be there next summer for sure.
