  1. I definitely saw it while going up the lifthill. Even pointed it out to the guy sitting next to me. It didn't seem too far above us at the crest of the lift.
  2. There is a test seat at the ride entrance. Feels like a standard B&M seat to me.
  3. Pretty sweet ride I must say! Back in line for my second ride. Fury feels more of a rush the whole time, but Orion doesn't let up either. They're only loading half the train at the moment so the queue appears longer than what it really is.

    @DustinTheNow mentioned it earlier, and I'm agreeing with him, there has to be some hints in the total rider throughout numbers. There's zero chance of any of these numbers being accurate to the single person, so somebody made up some of the digits on these numbers. The millions digit is likely accurate, but after that, who can say for sure. Here are the numbers (and rides) so far: 6,280,935 (ROT) 6,762,893 (FH) 8,237,308 (BK) 8,434,897 (ZOD) 11,554,278 (INV) 17,290,319 (FOF) (note that this number was originally 6,761,893, which is exactly 1000 off f

    Both trademark applications are tentatively approved pending required subtractions. Both ORION and POLARIS applications shared common language with several existing trademarks, so the examiner listed several items that would need to be removed from the new trademark applications in order to be approved, including sunglasses, shot glasses, carrying bags, keychains, and anything Class 25 (clothing, footwear, headwear, etc.). Now CF has 6 months (1/17/20) to respond the examiner's request, either agreeing to the required subtractions, or offer an argument that what they're applying for

    It crossed into giga threshold back on page 296.

    I'm still here. Just no notable updates in a while. I did email Mason again this morning asking if any new blueprints are available. Still waiting on an answer from them.

    KIGA update: two new recent videos popped up on YT that show some interesting things. First is a clip from Friday. This one is interesting because it shows the pier drilling machine in use and near the helix area of the ride. The existing blueprints do not cover this, so there's either some new blueprints out there that we haven't seen, or not every single blueprint needs to be submitted (rather, just a sampling is necessary), or they're going rogue and doing work that hasn't been approved yet by the city (doubt it), OR maybe they're allowed to drill holes all they want and only the conc

    KIGA update: so yesterday at about late morning and early afternoon (both after my daily morning check), both the ORION and POLARIS trademarks got an update. After the initial application, the first step on the USPTO side is for each application to get assigned an examiner and have an initial database search (to see if these new trademarks could potentially be confused or infringe upon existing trademarks). Yesterday, both trademark applications had that happen. These are called "XSearch Search Summary" if you wish to look them up. Comparing both Orion's and Polaris' search

    Yea you're right about not needing a huge foundation for the compressor room. They moved it quite a distance (from where the old Firehawk trains are) just to get it out of the way, though. Maybe the next leg of foundation work will start somewhere over there, whenever that begins. Yea! I saw that last night and wanted to post it here but figured it would be taken down quickly. This past Sunday, a user here posted either drone footage and/or pics but it got quickly taken down before I could even see it. I'm wondering if this video is the same person's content. While it's

    The pier drilling machine looks a bit shy of the first turn, but I have to wonder if it's there for the new compressor building? The building would be tied to the electrical grid, part of the released blueprints. As of Monday of this week, there were no new blueprints for further pier/footing work (for the coaster), but I could see them potentially working on the compressor building right now. I'd estimate the pier drilling machine is somewhere in this yellow circle, which is about where the compressor building is.

    They have two access roads to this back area. I'm guessing they'd take the red-dashed road since it's right off the highway, which would agree with what @Maverick44 is saying about webcam activity.

    Here's an update of CSF from yesterday. No big changes from what I can tell.
  14. Update time. I reached out to Mason's engineering office via email again to check on any new blueprints that exist, and they confirmed that no new blueprints exist yet outside of what we already have. Doesn't really make sense since they're marking further footing coordinates at the site (so where'd those coordinates numbers come from?). I do have to wonder though at what line are blueprints not submitted? There are blueprints for the trains, but Mason won't get those. There are blueprints for each track piece, but Mason won't get those. So at what point are blueprints not submitted to Mason?

    Roposting here from the construction thread since this thread gets more eyes and potentially more people to check on new blueprints. The WGT video was posted earlier but not the site, which has some more interesting pics in it. WGT's 11th update. Some good stuff in here! Big news! As he noted on his site, there are now some coordinate markers for the final turn (before the brake run) as well as part of the helix (best I can tell from his images). Note the proximity of these markers to the existing concrete path. This leads me to believe there's now more blueprints available that
