Getting pretty congested over there with all the pieces not to mention whats behind the tree line

And everything you see is just for the brake run and lift hill/drop.  Almost everything to the left of the dirt road appears to be brake run.  Everything in the middle and at the back all looks like lift hill based on how the supports attach to the track.  I'd say everything in the back field out of sight is for the remainder of the ride.

Yellow crane is down and might be done for the day. They did the same yesterday. White is still working on the storage shed.

This is slightly off topic, but... speaking of documentaries, you should check out Expedition Theme Park’s video series on flying coasters. The first video was  about the first flyer at Granada Studios and the Vekoma Flying Dutchman and the second is about Zamperla’s attempt at a flying coaster. The last in the three part series may be about the B&M flyers, as alluded to at the end of the Zamperla video.

Part 3 is out for those that are interested

So this is going to show industry ignorant I am, but here goes:  B&M designs the coasters.  They have detailed engineering and architectural plans.  But the park acts as a general contractor for the erection.  But GCI and RMC design and build their coasters, right?

Saw a huge crane going down 23 just south of Columbus a little over an hour ago.   Couldn't get pictures as I was driving.   Thing was large enough they had an OSP escort.  Not sure it was heading to the park unless there is maybe a lane restriction on 71 somewhere.   Just thought it was interesting. can't think of anything else that would require that big a crane down 23 anywhere.

I know RMC does. I am not sure about GCI.

I went to a presentation by Adam House and he was complimenting GCI's carpenters for working in the harsh winter conditions erecting Mystic Timbers and others.

So yeah lol GCI and RMC. B&M sends the detailed plans and SkyHigh is putting the coaster up so I think you are correct. KI / CF hires the contractor to erect the coaster. See Frm Dreams to Screams - Fury 325. They interview the company who put the coaster up.

 

Work is done for the day.

It was red.   Looked quite dirty. Lol. Not sure if it was Clifford or not though. Never seen it in person. Just found it interesting.   Sorry I couldn't get pics. Maybe I can con my company into giving me the dash cam video. Lol

We were discussing the route at work (if it is indeed going to KI)  There is lane restrictions on 71 south in Grove City I think. So maybe it was heading that way.  Kinda excited if so.  That means lift hill soon. :-D
