I was at the Boardwalk today, and they're making a lot of progress on the new Haunted Castle. In other news, their operations were superb today. They were able to dispatch Giant Dipper in about 25 seconds.
Welcome to today's update! The Haunted Castle is REALLY coming along and will be opening on May 28th, 2010. Most of the interior is being completed and all of the ride track is in. The facade facing the street is nearly done and the front side is looking great too. It looked like they were going to test ride vehicles within the next week or so. I am amazed at how fast this thing is coming along and I commend the workers on this great looking ride. Also, there appears to be a new building on the Boardwalk itself, possibly for food or something. If you haven't checked out the Boardwalk's website recently, you should check out the page they have on the new ride!
ADMIN EDIT: I went ahead and deleted your double post because it didn't have any purpose besides bumping the discussion by looking for responses. While we appreciate your updates, remember that responses will come in time--there isn't any need to ask for them specifically.
Front side of the castle.
Here is where the ride will come out at the end of the ride. Notice the track coming in - (doors are temporary)
Looking down the front side. Nice!
Closer up on the details.
New building on the front of the castle. What do you think will/should go in it?
This is where the Black & White ice cream stand will return to on the HC building.
Street side is getting closer to completion. Strange color combination though...
Full view of the back of the ride.
BONUS PIC! ============== Stay tuned for next week's update and look out for the ride's opening on May 28th, 2010 !!!! Thanks for looking! :)
========================================= Wow, two weeks gone by already? Sheesh, where is the time going! Anywho, I visited the site of the Haunted Castle today and boy was it looked good. All of the scaffolding was gone, track is all in, and themeing is nearly completely finished. They are still finishing up some electrical and painting on the outside of the structure. When I went last week I snapped a picture of the NEW cars on the track, and I forgot to post them! So the pics of the car will be from LAST WEEK, otherwise, the pictures are from this week. The ride is going to open on May 28th, 2010 - enjoy the update!
Newly painted building next to the HC. Those 'cheese' slabs were blue last year!
Scaffolding is gone! Looking really nice.
Looking farther down the NEW HC...
This photo is from May 4th, 2010. THE RIDE CAR!!!!!!111
This photo is also from May 4th, 2010. The ice cream stand is on the right, and the games next up in the 'red'.
Remember this little building across from the Haunted Castle in past updates? According to the workers, this will be a funnel cake stand - MMMM!!
Panoramic view of the ride - nearly finished!
Another beach-side angle...
Starting to continue painting. The color at the very top is what the rest will look like.
Street-side view basically the same... Looks good!
From across the street. ====================== NEXT UPDATE: Stay tuned as we approach the opening of the new ride. I am trying to get a behind the scenes tour of the ride before it opens as well as to try to go to the ride on opening day May 28th, 2010. Thanks for watching!
