  1. Well for a moment there i thought they were going to make that outside handrail on the first drop all straightened out and look nice. But its still all jagged in appearance. I dont know why that bothers me, but it does. LOL
  2. I see by webcam that they have another stack of bents being assembled, i am hoping they will erect those sometime tomorrow, will be interesting to see where the crane goes after the next 3 or 4 bents go up.
  3. ^That's true i guess. It just seemed really slow compared to how quick they have been. But as long as they are ahead of schedule it's all good.
  4. Did anyone else think it took a rather long time to put up that first bent today? They normally would have had 3 up in the time it took them to do just the one, i wonder what the problem was.
  5. Hope this pic loads this time, it was just pretty cool i thought. http://pin.it/1zI9WNQ
  6. Magenta Lizard, nice job on getting pics! Thanks. Did you notice if they had done any work in the shed/station area at all?
  7. This is pretty cool from the Kings Island tweet. <blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">WATCH: The standing of the tallest bent on the new Mystic Timbers roller coaster set to open spring 2017. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/WhatsInTheShed?src=hash">#WhatsInTheShed</a><a href="https://t.co/JmCEeeyca3">pic.twitter.com/JmCEeeyca3</a></p>— Kings Island (@KingsIslandPR) <a href="https://twitter.com/KingsIslandPR/status/789890514095050756">October 22, 2016</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
  8. That is one of the best pics posted so far. Awesome view.

  10. yes i was wondering how they were going to proceed now with the way they prebuild them in stacks so the smallest is on the top and they get bigger. bug now, since the lift hill is going from tallest to smalles, i wonder if they will start from the start of the lift hill and work towards the top.
  11. I have noticed that the bents that they are currently staging on the ground look to have a much different configuration than the last ones, quite a bit different from how i am seeing it. It will be interesting to see once it is vertical.
  12. I hope they have a media day and invite everyone including the enthusiasts, everyone EXCEPT TPR or Rob Alvey.
  13. my couisin sent me this pic . i love the view from this angle. my
  14. If i lived there i would do a bit of drone footage from time to time, does anyone on this forum have a drone that could perhaps do the same for us?
  15. Looking darn nice i must say. Be interesting to see how they do the next stack of bents. They were making them largest to smallest with the smallest being on top and getting taller since they were going UP the first drop. Now if they continue with same style they will be going from smallest to tallest in the stack since it wil be going down the lift hill...wonder how those are going stack? guess we will find out.
  16. i was thinking the same thing, or we would be able to tell for sure once that current bent was up. But they still have the second half of it to go.
  17. Yes, when it got to about the 80% complete point, they put another cam in the old SOB station and aimed at the area of the loop in the very back and zero g roll.
  18. Well if they do it like when Banshee was constructed, they will add a secondary webcam. Hopefully. Perhaps put it so the construction of the turnaround or over the lake can be seen.
  19. I am thinking we will this new stack of bents start going up tomorrow. Those boys are moving right along, almost topped out, and once that happens....................wait for it.....................it's all "downhill from there". Sorry, i just had to.
  20. Those construction boys really hustle on the assembly when they got to work Saturday. Good for them.... 6 days a week about 10 hours a day M-F. That's definately guys that love what they do for a living. As it should be for everyone. That coaster is really looking high quality good, they do very good dedicated work and it shows.
  21. I hope they dont remove it....if it needs an overhaul then they should do that or replace the attraction.....i know at SFMM in california, the Logjammer flume ride which was a crowd favorite since the park opened (around same time as KI) and in place of it put FULLTHROTTLE coaster , which is a great ride but the park received an overwhelming amount of negative feedback on removing the attraction. I personally agree. Flume ride is a great family ride....if its life is at its end....the put a new one in.....flumes are just a traditional fun ride at most parks and should always be there in my opinion. if nobody rode it or liked it at all, then ok, but that just usually isnt the case. Just my opinion is all.
  22. IF that is a RMC truck with signage, there could be countless reasons its there......on way to CP and help a bit with MT perhaps...maybe the exects are just inquiring about an RMC conversion on The Beast (doubt that, but never know). it broke down....hiding out from CP until announcement is made for mean streak...or maybe the drivers just stopped by for a day at the park..im sure they love coasters just as much if not more than everybody else...who knows?
  23. I am pretty sure that is the Battle Escape ride. from the constuction updates i have seen on youtube ...that particular attraction is a MASSIVE building to say the least....even the area that is believed to be just for queuing is gigantic.
