Decoding 2020

Recommended Posts

Pictures from today (Jun 6) right around noon.
Rode on The Beast this morning and there is only about 20ft of woods between The Beast track and the CLEARING for the new coaster.  There was a bulldozer parked at the edge of the clearing and it was VERY easy to see from The Beast.  The actual supports and track will of course be a little further away, but it's much closer than it looks from overhead plans.

Is there any way to tell whether the spine of the track is painted a different color with what we have to work with right now?

Theres no way to tell if the KI track is even painted let alone two tone. We just have a pic of some blue track off in the distance, but all of the track we know is KI's is still sitting there gray.

I thought years ago roller coaster makers designed the track to be pressurized.  If the track were crack, even a little, at any point, pressure would drop and they would be alerted to a known safety issue.  Does it look like this new coaster has a track that does that?  Safety First! :P

Did no one notice the parade floats are now located there?  They are covered in blue tarps behind Zephyr.

Checking out the recent aerial pics and comparing them to the blueprints, looks like most of the piers have been poured for the brake run, all have been poured for the transfer/storage/station, and they're just beginning with the lift. 

The green highlights below is the existing transformer that can be used as a point of reference between the aerial images and blueprints. The yellow is the backbone piers/footing. The purple is the furthest so far of the brake run. Finally, the blue is upcoming lift hill piers that'll be poured. Note that the semi trailers will need to be moved to access one of the pier areas.

@BSBMX Yes. The 4 piers(holes) I have circled in this pic look to be for the station.

I think the 4 you circled are actually for the transfer track, closest to the station. I used the track footing blueprint below to better show the station area. (hard to tell the blue from green highlights in the aerial image, but the corresponding colors match the blueprint image below)
