It's looking so purty!

Does anyone know if there will a Preview Day like last year?

From the looks of the webcam, i do believe the section going over the lake has been completed, i could be wrong.

There's definitely wood there on both paths!
I don't think it's completed though. The side leaving rivertown seems more dense than the side coming back.

I saw that earlier today.  My coworker say me looking at the webcam and asked if it had to do with the shed.  Then we watched the workers crawling through the life hill bents in awe--if the wind was anything up there like it was here, it was pretty stout.  And looked to be raining something fierce, too.

Ice? That'd be rain at this point.

Lol I don't know. it's been raining here in Indianapolis all day. I have no clue what weather could be like in Mason since I don't live there. Just a thought.

Just a thought, but I just had the idea that we should try to avoid shed spoilers on here until a fair bit after it opens.

Even if we have an agreement here, it would probably still be hard to avoid if you have any enthusiast friends on Facebook or follow any industry social media.

But, I'd be perfectly willing to spoiler tag any of my own references until things are commonly known.

^ Not to mention the media. KI may request they not spoiler it, but they are under no obligation. Plus once you get in line there is not much you can do about the loud mouths.

I just cat wait to read all of the whiny posts on their FB page.... or rather hear about them since I dont read KIs FB page..... about "You guys suck, it was supposed to have a drop track" or "What a ripoff, Wiki said there was going to be a corkscrew inversion inside the shed".

Hopefully there's as much hush hush as were the normal courtesy around when Star Wars VII came out... not that it was a huge surprise to me

Well i am thinking that once the train enters the shed, YOU will be in the shed, that's what's in there...................YOU.

I really want there to be something like Cobra's Curse's projection mapping!

The article above mentioned "seemingly paranormal contents" in the shed- could there be a Spilntercat inside? Possibly Oakley (the giant tree thing)? Honestly, I'm not too concerned about what's in the shed, I'm just excited to ride this thing! :D

A GCI Intern may have given some insight about the shed? Transfer track? Part of the ride or just for maintenance?

I like the thoughts he put out, but I hope he was allowed to send the post via the park and the GCI Company without breaking any NDA's

I don't think it's necessarily a big surprise that there's a transfer track... That's standard on every GCI and every multi-trained coaster I can think of. They need to be able to take trains off and put trains on the track easily...

Since it was on GCI's website, I assume it was reviewed by his superior's prior to posting, though certainly not guaranteed.

 

With that said, its not like he gave anything away.  Of the small % of those who ride next year that truly care what is in the shed and understand any of the coaster science behind a ride, they would have already assumed with a good amount of confidence that the transfer table was going to be in or around that shed.  Other than confirming what we already knew, he doesn't tell us anything much beyond they layman's description of how said design is detailed

I recall Gwazi having a transfer track on each side just before the station, but I don't recall the turn going into the station being as sharp as what is indicated on the MT track layout. 

I was at Dollywood for their "Christmas in the Smokies" last weekend and while in line for Lightning Rod they were adding another train because of the crowds. Let me just say that the transfer track is ingenious...when not in use, the 2nd train is actually is stored just below the operational train while in the station and is loaded onto the track via an elevator like platform. It's kinda hard to describe unless you see it in action, but based on the track layout rendering of MT that we see now, I don't think that is what we will see in the shed. Besides, the train is empty for safety reasons during a transfer so it definitely is not rider inclusive.

Several coasters have their storage track/maintenance shed under them.

^ Not several, Just a few. I don't know where they are, but there isn't that many.

I'm not surprised by the Transfer Table part of it, I'm a little more Skeptical of his choice of wording at the beginning of it saying, "seemingly paranormal contents" Feels like, that gives it a little bit away at least for the theme of it.
