Gotta love the technology they use to build these multi-million dollar rides. Slap an orange road cone onto the bottom of a sand bag, duct tape some pvc pipe and dangle it from a crane. Genius! :)

Hey, if it gets the job done...

Well, where else will you get a funnel THAT big? If it saves 30 bucks from buying some huge pre-fabbed funnel - more power too em as ya said.

Cool update...at least this freakish global warming weather seems to be helping with coaster construction!

Why couldn't Clint have "nudged" Mean Streak with the car?!

Anyway, thanks a bunch (to you and the Crew) for that update. I've never seen most of those angles before. Love the final "airtime-filled hill" shot.

Those are some nice shots. Definitely loving the one of the lift hill disappearing into the fog.

Imagine the ride if they could actually keep it like that. :lmao:

Wow they have started work on scenery. =) I am looking forward to seeing how the scenery turns out, hopefully it will be as good as what we are all expecting to see.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Hey everyone!

Thanks for all the kind posts. My girlfriend is kinda new at this roller coaster stuff and she is the one who took the pictures well I was filming stuff. She was so excited when I emailed her at work and told her to go to TPR.com She was like "THOSE ARE MY PICTURES!!!" She does not understand how geekie some of us can get!

Hope to see every one on the midways!
