Another update, as things are moving smoothly at the STR Construction Site. Straight from Cedar Point themselves, we have pictures and a new blog.BLOG UPDATE
We're getting closer. Inching ever-so-slowly to May 15. We've talked about the signs of spring earlier, but just like leaves seem to just sprout up all at once, our ride cars at the park are doing the same:

Ride vehicles are coming out of their winter rehab and onto the midways, which means we're almost ready to get them assembled and running again. We love it.
Speaking of spring and leaves, the leaves are now sprouting at Shoot the Rapids, as crews are planting trees, installing fences and cleaning up the ride site.
We've also been told that we're days away from filling the reservoirs with water. We'll start with the island reservoir and then move over to the mainland reservoir.
The water is pumped in through regular water lines, cycled through the filtration system and will then become the ride's means of movement and saturation.
