What will make the giga seem even taller is the train on it, look how small it is on fury. I already think ours looks bigger in person because they look a very similar height, but ours is buried in the side of the park

Double post: It looks like we have some supports ready to be shipped out to I'm guessing the wave turn area to be assembled.

I actually think those arrived around noon.  They are pretty massive

It looks like possibly the last piece of Artemis is gone now. Also, I just noticed that these supports are still here so they probably need to get those off before they can move the big cranes to the area over to right.

In Fury's construction time lapse, you can see that those supports weren't removed until after construction was finished. So I assume that will happen with this too.

First glance from the webcam coming back online I thought someone had just mirrored Millennium Force and pasted it in. Looks pretty great! Can't wait to see the wave turn rise up. That looks like the highlight of the ride in my opinion.

Definitely more track was already laid today....It also kinda looks like out of the picture more stuff is going on. For example, it seems more supports are being placed...I think. It's hard to tell.

Wait you can move them yourself? I checked it out but seems to not be working?

During the season, you can change which way the camera is facing.

It sucks because they say follow the construction of the new water coaster but then there is no cam lol

Wish they would either turn the Orion cam a little more, or raise up and turn the Diamondback cam so we could see the turn around, and Vortex come down.

Doubt Vortex will be coming down for a while.

I know this has been said a lot, but I love that blue color. Looks much better than the renderings in my opinion!

Agreed. The drop also appears more pronounced/steep than in renders, I'm very curious how the 'wave turn' will look (and obviously ride) irl, it's massive!

Is it just me? Or does the way the sun shines on the banked track on the wave turn make it look like a pretty quick and snappy bank?

I'm hoping for the world's tallest Zero-G-Stall instead of the wave turn. Oh well, I can only dream. Yes, that wave turn looks intense and very snappy. Hopefully we'll keep some good speed through the element.

It would be nice to see the demolition of Vortex tbh. Its not every day you see massive demolition you know!

A guest cannot change the way the webcams face...

Just an observation from the webcam...does it look like the walk back to Orion from the midway will be the same distance as it is from AZ to The Bat?  I know Firehawk's entrance queue was right there by the lockers, but from the webcam view, it looks as if Orion's (actual first) entrance queue will be a good ways back there. 

Am I wrong on my visual measurements?

I'm sure there will be another software update to the webcams and internet  when demolition time comes around, so doubtful we'll have a chance to see that :rolleyes:

I went to Ikea today for a bookshelf and was excited and stunned to see Orion all the way from I75. It's only brief, but I saw it on the way down and back.  It's amazing.

I think it deserves a silent, dignified death personally.

Here's an update from WildGravity Travels, and it looks like you can see the start of the second hill from Great Wolf Lodge!

Coming from the north you can spot it near Traders World. You can see the top of the tower and Orion sitting on the horizon.
