A few days behind here but I finally got my shots from Sunday afternoon ready for everyone. I do apologize, I have a crummy camera and I got there at a tough time of day for good lighting. Oh well! Enjoy!

For anyone who didn't catch it on facebook here is Six Flags support for the Rangers. Sad they lost but SF Giant will be good fun!

not much has changed in the strange ledger department over here where the old helix is shifting from inside to out on the old structure
tpr3.jpg
you can see they closed up the gap after the first drop where they were running the crane through to get into the old helix area.
tpr4.jpg
They still need to get one leg of track in back there but you can see the approach to the low turn. Looks crazy!
tpr5.jpg
Here you can see the crazy airtime that will surely be coming on the new approach into the old helix section.
tpr6.jpg
Here is a more head on look at the drop into the old helix from the train station.

And the wildest shot I got is the approach to the turn under the lift. How bizzar does that look? Very excited!

and finally here are the ledgers in the "that which we do not speak of" section.

That banked hill before the turn under the helix looks unreal.

^Agreed! I've never ridden El Toro (not yet!) but so far Texas Giant looks like it has multiple of the 'Rolling Thunder hill' sections. This is going to be insane.
I have a hard time ranking coasters so here are just some of my favorites
|Intimidator 305|Maverick|Skyrush|Voyage|Shivering Timbers|Goliath SFOG|Fahrenheit|Banshee|Mystery Mine|Cornball Express|Cheetah Hunt|

They'd probably just hang a banner over the Texas Giant Sign.

I'd love some SF Giant merch as well.

New updates look awesome, just hope they get the whole project open without much trouble.

Here is a close-up video of the Texas Giant 2 construction site I took from the Six Flags Railroad, with the ride-ops permission of course.
