It's going pretty well as far I've been observing. This week is HH set up week. Brake run is up, the turn around into the station and even station track is up, and about one more to go before that are completely done with the end/station of the ride. I'm just surprised how high up the brake run is, then how low the station is to the ground. It's eye level from the little media anouncement area.

I don't know about all track work going up before the season ends, but the ooriginalplan I heard was getting big, major parts of track work up by winter.

Though the model is off in a few parts...yeah, it's awesome. It's had the biggest crowd at KI in the last couple of days! ;)

Looks like its going to be an awsome coaster. If I look at the layout and the stats, I wonder wich coaster is better.

Behemoht our Diamondback.

Diamondback has a very nice landscape and an twisting layout. Wich layout do you guys think is better?:roll:
