I don't see the post you quoted. Did you post in the wrong thread?

Where was that taken from? Shooting from that angle would give us a better view of Vortex demo.

I wont say exactly, but if you look at the webcam and google maps you will be able to find it and even go there as it is a public space. With that said, I drive in and out of this area, I do not hang out or even get out of my car when I do go over there.

They are raising the next support into place!!

It’s still below the tree line...

 

I take it back. It’s perfectly lined up with a wave turn support from my usual vantage point.

Those are awesome pictures! Thank you so much for always posting great pics. @Waltny

There is nothing new there, I jumped the gun. Sometimes that webcam really messes with the eyes and then you think you see something in this jumble of track and crane booms that isn’t there.  Everything that I can see is current out of place and MUCH further  toward the lifthill than it looks on the webcam.  I have to admit I’m confused on where this piece is going to actually jut up from tree line at.  I hang my head in shame....

It would probably be just to the left of the wave hill from your photo's perspective.  Something roughly like this.

Looking at the cam and looking at the supports of the wave hill. I don't think the new support is tall enough yet to be seen over the main entrance. Also what @LovinMeSomeBanshee said is correct as well.  It would be to the left a bit.

Yeah, looking at my edit, I think I put it too far to the left.  I think it would be slightly to the left, but not as much as I put it.  And we'd probably be looking at the hill straight-on, so you may not be able to see both sides of the hill.  Probably something like this.

If you look you can see the new support is smaller then the support you can't see that is on the wave hill. I think you you have the sport very close its just to small to see right now.

It can be seen, I stand corrected once again.... Middle of the hills barely jutting above the tree line.

 

I am surprised at where this is in relationship to the second hill. I think the perspective really through me off at first as I though it would be seen toward the beginning of what we can see of the wave turn which should put the helix to the right of the drop and maybe even the lift from this angle.

Looks like track is going up soon!

They just left for lunch. 145ish is my guess for track going skyward.

Well, missed that call. They must have rushed back from lunch as I saw them leave...

 

It is almost near impossible to see from the drop off parking lot. Look far bottom left in the second image.

Looking at the original file, he may be right.
You will feel it heavily in the front if it’s like i305 trim on the airtime hill and may kill some serious air there. I expected them to burn off the speed in the helix as it seems to be the B&M way. Somewhat sad faced 

 

I also want to add how crazy it is that @Gplez90 was able to see that.

Well if you have good vision it's not hard.

Doesn't fury have a trim on its largest airtime hill? I don't think it'll slow down the train too much. Remember this coaster isn't about the airtime. We have 3 other coasters that are mainly airtime focused (DB, MT, and Racer).

Well, the wave turn will gave airtime, the turnaround might give airtime, so will the speedhill, big airtime hill, and the twistout, and maybe even the little pop into the breakrun. It is more about airtime than any other giga out there.

As Waltny said, the original file shows a trim brake in that spot, so yes, that's a trim.

Leave it to B&M to trim it! Lol 

 

In all seriousness i bet you won;t even notice it. Unlike other B&M's.

I wonder if it'll make that weird noise that Fury 325's trim makes
