Memorial Day...I don't see how that's possible. Yes, the construction is going fast, but doesn't it require like two weeks of testing once the course is finished?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^That would still leave them a good 4 weeks to finish construction. As we have seen the last two weeks, it's more then doable. ;)

Right. And they can test while they theme that area too, which will save time. However, you know how Jersey is with their testing and all. That thing is going to be broken in in no time.

As par my knowledge of testing etc as of working at GADV during the 05 season. They are required 100 hours of testing to give GADV the green certificate of operations for the ride. 100 hours broken down by 8+ hour days should be able to be done just as fast as SUF was done, Ka took longer due to tweaking the motors and accumulators for the launch.

I Grabbed a few more pics of El Toro at the Park Yesterday.

Look at the hills in the foreground. These are the "Back" hills. The one on the right is gonna be SICK! Plus, both tracks are so intertwined with the structure! Headchoppers Galore!

You can make out the Mounts for the Track here at the top of the turnaround. The Banking looks insane!

Hill #2 - You can tell it is not a perfect parabola. You know what that means! AIRTIME!

Why the heck haven't I been focusing on this coaster? El Toro looks badass and cool by the lakeside.

That and LOL at the Holy Land picture...
-My butt has touched 112 roller coasters, how unfortunate.
