Went up to the park tonight with my Son and we had a blast. the park was empty but everybody in that place could not stop talking about I305.

We do have 3 new supports up (at least, from what I can tell) Almost all the foundations are down I would say about 80% done. They are really humming along.
Here are alot of pics from today.

Another thing I was thinking about. Night rides on this thing should be Awesome due to its secluded (and un-photogenic) positioning, as long as lights are not put way out there. although I am sure the lift will be lit up.

First we will start with the new supports 2 in plain sight and one of the tiny supports (2nd s-curve threading needle) hidden behind the trees

oh yea, In case you were wondering Dominator's grass has filled in quite nicely and you would have never known that 2 years ago it was a parking lot.

I went around today taking pics of everything that was sure to change next year due to snoop dog moving in, and I noticed this sign in HB land and sadly it is the best damn sign in the park! go figure

I would be kind of surprised if they didn't have lights throughout the entire ride, actually, considering its theme.

Dominator is looking mighty fine. I have to say, I preferred the lake to the parking lot, but it's still a beautiful ride.

I know more about donkeys than women!

I really love the color of the track. Just seems so vibrant.

Thanks for those pics man.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

PKD--I really like that shot of Dominator!

Great photos as usual! Without them we would have been "what the hell are we getting?" this whole summer instead of speculating about 380 foot gigas back in June!

I haven't seen any recent pictures of Dominator, but now that the grass has filled out its looking fantastic.

So what determines when foundations get poured and supports put in? It seems backwards to me that they are putting some supports up yet there are still foundations yet to be poured? It isn't really relevant to this ride, but I have always wondered how it all works.

The shot below is fun stuff PKD, thanks for posting! You actually managed to make a photo of track look exciting sitting in a parking lot.
