February 15th, 2009 Update!

Image
Here is the Aerial view as seen by the Cyberdyne HK Drone (aka Sky Tower View)

Image
Looks like this turn is fairly complete and ready for some track!

Image
Here you can see the dead man turn...not too many Popsicle sticks left laying around now!

Image
Remember when that whole back area was filled with Popsicle sticks just a few short weeks ago?

Image
Mr. Big Crane is lifting another bent into place.

Image
It's cool to see how they are working on two sections of the ride at once!

Image
I see some steel has been put into place for some of the cross overs.

Image
How about a nice closeup of that overpass?

Image
Another look at the Dead Mans Party Turn, Deja Vu featuring DJ Jazzy Jeff and some fresh paint, and a little cameo by Mr. Big Crane.

Image
You're looking at the future Terminator Salvation: The Ride entrance! I like the little make-shift bridge they've got going on!

Image
From the midway, Terminator is really taking shape!

Image
Each week the wood seems to get more and more dense.

Image
Terminator only went vertical just under 1 month ago and look how much is already done!

Image
Cyberdyne Systems crew is inspecting the ride.

Image
There's that new brand spanking new bent going into place!

Image
I have a feeling there will be a pop of airtime here!

Image
The Dead Mans Party turn almost looks bigger than Deja Vu! =)

Image
Looks like that alien transmitter has been covered in wood! Those Cyberdyne drones know how to disguise themselves!

Image
Two giant curves!

Image
Even on a Sunday these guys are still going at it.

Image
Terminator Salvation: The Ride, a yellow thing, a red thing, and a silver box.

Image
This area is going to look so much better with a GOOD woodie behind it!

Image
"It's a dead mans party...who could ask for more..."

Image
Another view of wooden sticks.

Image
Mr. Small Crane is still hanging around.

Image
But Mr. Big Crane is the center of attention today!

Image
I really, REALLY hope they get rid of the "Cyclone Bay" signs!!! Anyway, that's today's update! Hope you've enjoyed it. We will have more next week!

Awesome photos, Robb! This ride is really taking shape fast, but I guess all wooden coasters (except flying turns) do.
This is my signature. Deal with it.

Going up faster and faster each week, and looking great! And the entrance is going to fit perfectly right there.

^Yup, I'm glad they're making good progress! I hope they're ahead of schedule, because I'm going there in April. Not sure if they would work so hard that it'd be up a month early. DANG IT! :?r

Still, great update Robb! Glad someone's able to keep up with this great progress! =)

I was trying to think of a good supplement to your Oingo Boingo quotation, but all I could come up with was..

"Don't run away, its a woodie!"

Ouch. Thanks for the photos!

I'm sure this isn't a concern to some people, but one this that's bugged me about this ride is that it's a wooden roller coaster based off a movie about machines taking over the world! Even with this idea bugging me at times, I can't wait to ride it!

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

Wow that is taking shape very fast. I have been busy watching the Diamondback webcam and nothing on this. Can't wait to see more.

Hopes Magic Mountain gets a used Roller Skater that 36" kids can ride.

^ I'm pretty sure that it is supposed to open Memorial day weekend. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I think it looks very nice up against the freshly painted Deja Vu.

This monster is shaping up really nicely, great pictures. Just a silly side note\question though, I know that the "dead man's turn" is a common element on many wooden coasters, however, is there a reason they named it "dead man's turn"?
