When do you guys think we will start seeing the lift hill?

Probably after the assemble the .......brake.....WAIT! Notice how all the pieces are pretty much where the brake run is; Maybe they will start on the lift hill soon!

I think we will see that sometime late September / early October.  I think by the end of Haunt we should have a hill in place.

I think it is. They out the eyes on the 265ft level instead of the 275ft level. So we will have a better view.

It will be a few weeks until they start on the lift. They have to finish the brake run first I believe. But I do think they'll try to have the lift hill done before the Winter Solstice since it is projected to be a very harsh winter and nothing is worse than being up 300+ feet in the air in brutal cold. 

Edit: I just saw a truck pull in with what I believe are supports.

I don't think the will assemble the brake run before the lift hill because if you look where a lot of the pieces are, they are near or next to the brake run. I wouldn't be surprised if they assemble the lift hill before the brake run.

Also I do not know how much this will relate but I think Fury's lift hill was up pretty early in fall / early winter.

From the past coasters seems they will do the brake run/station first then start on the lift. 

So basically you answered your own question

Can you site that lol

I do know that in one of the Fury construction videos, one of the builders mentioned that B&M provides a step-by-step book (very thick) on how to construct each coaster.

There’s so much busy work to do in the station area haha. I would think we would start seeing track work on the bottom of the first drop at the same time they start on the lift? A few more weeks and this thing’s really gonna start to take shape!
