So does the average cowfield.

I love how they all signed that piece!

It's a tradition in ironworking that certain milestone pieces are signed by everyone involved. They did the same thing to commemorate the completion of the gigantic lift hill. They also place certain items (in the U.S., typically an American flag and an evergreen tree) atop the structure. :)

As mentioned above by silver2005, the station for Fury 325 and the new front entrance to Carowinds are definitely really coming along nicely!

Looks like work on the queue is coming along at a fast rate as well. Actually there are currently some men out working on the queue as this post is being typed!

Check out that progress on the new bridge sitting over the Fury 325 underground dive!

This front entrance area of the park is really starting to shape up!

I know it is really hard to get a true feel for the coaster just based on POVs but IMO this may be one of the best coasters on the planet when it is finally completed. The high/lows (Parts where you are really high then come all the way down to the ground) look fantastic. Just like Banshee I feel the sense of speed of this ride will be fantastic, especially before the turnaround. I am trying to pull back my expectations so I don't set myself up for disappointment but man this ride looks amazing.

Cedar Fair certainly has been investing a LOT of money into Carowinds. I mean not only are they getting new front entrance buildings, they got a nice new parking toll plaza at the end of last season as well.

Maybe it helps that Cedar Fair has a satellite corporate office in Charlotte.

Construction crews are moving at a very fast pace on the new front entrance area!

The park has publicly stated that there is no direct relation between Fury 325 and the Charlotte Hornets basketball team. The hornet / honeycomb theme is, rather, indicative of the Charlotte area and that is where both team and ride get their identities.

I like how both Gatekeeper and Fury interact with the front gate, just in very different ways. Also, carrying through the hexagon shape and colors throughout the ride experience is nice. That is a great touch that I'm looking forward to seeing in person.
