I think if my eyes are correct the speed hill is done. now moving into the under the wave hill supports.

The hill still needs to valley out, but either than that, I would consider it done.

They are either done for the day or about to move into a new position.

T-Bone is on the move and lots of workers are now under the wave turn. We may see the approach to the air time hill done today. I  however doubt they will start anything this late thought.

I would imagine they didn't put the speed hill up before the wave-ish turn because the gap between those support beams is probably big enough to fit a piece of track through it with plenty of tolerance to not worry about it swinging into a support.

You are correct. Wave hill was up before the speed hill.

Another reason to do the wave hill first is that if (God forbid) something were to go wrong and get dropped after the speed hill was in, now there are two pieces of track that are trashed....

If my eyes are right I see T bone is up and I think more track is going in.

Cleo is now on the close side of the wave hill.  i think we will see the start of the air time hill tomorrow weather permitting.

My apologies if this isn’t down to the exact track piece, but we’re nearing the home stretch! (Photo originally taken from the King’s Island website)

So they should be clear of the supports and can come in from The Racer side now hopefully without much issue and continue with the current pace.

May statement still stands. I think track work will be completed by the end of this month. 

I believe they said that was their plan anyways

I think this is why they are speeding up so much. I'd say when they were starting they would pretty much do one piece per week. This is now like two elements per week!

Can anyone tell what they’re doing right now? I think I see some track by the crane.

In the rendering, the train hauls over the big hill. I think you'll get some serious ejector on it. Unless it was sped up in the rendering, I think it may just be one of the strongest airtime moments.

That support has been there for a while. It was there on the 5th which is when this pic is from.
