Absolutely. He’s the same guy that was trying to bribe people into illegally recording POVs on Orion.

Its that guy with the "post a POV and get glasses" thing on Instagram?

Yep, it seems he has multiple photography corporation pages on FB, as he links it to same YT account.

Ah, from the wording in that tweet, it sounds like it won’t be topped off today.

It's not really safe working conditions with the winds today. Between the rain, and the winds a 300' in the air it's quite dangerous. Looking at the forecast, Tomorrow, Friday and Saturday look like the safest days this week to lift. I lay watermain, and with a 10 mph wind, it's hard to lay 12" c900 at times. I could only imagine lifting a 1 ton+ piece of track 280' feet in the air with these winds.

Yes that is the top height of the hill, but the crest of the "arch" has to be lowered in place, so the track piece could easily be dangling at 300' to clear the workers and the existing trackB)

Can’t wait to see it topped off, hopefully some kind of documentary is filmed like fury

Just finished watching the one done by DOMA if that's the one you're talking about. I really enjoyed the construction process being shown in a semi-decent aspect. I've always been fascinated with these big coaster jobs. Just like giant Lego Technic!

Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny so I'm guessing we'll see plenty of work then. It's also supposed to get really cold over the next several days. I believe Don during an interview during Banshee's construction said that the really cold helps the workers since the ground isn't as muddy and stayed hard. 

Here is a link to the interview:

It looks like it should stop raining in an hour or so. I would imagine they get some work done later today even if it's just staging more pieces for the top off.

By maintenance, do you mean a part is broken that will take several months to replace as it is manufactured overseas? :ph34r:

I live a few minutes from the park and the skies are clearing up. Here's to hoping we see something happen today!

Edit: Looking at the weatherbug, it looks like they are putting in a drop piece!!

Edit: Here is a screenshot from the weatherbug:

The difference from the Weather Bug cam and that photo  are drastic. The cam makes it look way far off in the distance. The pic here make it look like this thing is towering over International Street haha

Thank you sir, I used to be pretty good once upon ago. Orion and documenting adventures with my son has reignited my passion and blowing the dust off the camera.
