Went to KD for a little bit today (Going to the haunt on Friday night). Here is some pictures I took of the construction. Nothing new really, they were some workers doing something on the support for the drop. And there was more track sitting back there for the turn around.

Looks great, soon we will see Intimidator become part of the beautiful skyline of Kings Dominion.

If we count the horizontal beams on the lift they are now on the fifth or the sixth beam. In total there is going to be 11! This thing is huge! And on top of that will be the track and the top. Really looking forward to seeing more of this construction!

Nice photos! From the webcam I couldn't really tell how tall this thing is getting!

New construction pics are up on the intimidator site as well as a new blog update.....according to Pagel each segment of lift track weighs 3200 LBS. so they're being extra careful when planning out the rigging for these sections of track,which are now on site & will hopefully be put up real soon.

Work is also beginning on the 2nd tower which suprises me because I'd find it difficult to install the supports for the 150ft. hill with both towers being in the way.

^With vertical construction being at almost two months in at this point, you'd think they'd have this figured out by now.
