I'm surprised they started on the base of the lift hill before doing the brake run. But I'll take it!

I got to thinking about it, and due to how close the brake run is to where the lift hill is, maybe they decided they needed that extra space for the cranes.  Who knows.

They probably need the space for cranes to move in and out

We should start seeing the drop being started soon too, they’ll evenly go up because the top is a self supporting arch.

I really wish the camera was a higher resolution and was zoomed in more.  Since when we enlarge pics from the cam they are blurry n kinda hard to make out.  Ohio Valley Coasters has  some really clear pics n videos

The guys at Ohio Valley Coasters have been KILLIN it with the updates

I met up with them on Saturday. I am trying to get them to go in the air with us. They said they would love to. Just need to coordinate with my pilot. So, hopefully soon. We definitely have the start of the lift hill though!

Let me know as well if there was ever another time to get up there! I'd like to do the same for Coaster Conquest!

I don’t think we will see anything significant on the lift hill or drop until we get two large cranes assembled there.

I wonder if the crane is being put together back behind the trees where they have been storing all the track. Fury’s lift and drop required 3 of those large cranes.

Will a crane have to hold that first piece of the lift hill in place until it connects to something else that is supported?

Also, I can see some more welding being done in the transfer station.

First support of the lift is going to be placed soon. They just pulled it up on a trailer!

It shouldn't. It'll be connected to the track before it, and to a footer.

Any idea why the Red Racer just randomly cycled. Just saw it on the webcam.

Just saw that too right now. It is probably just routine maintenance/testing.

That's what I figured it was something like that, but had never seen it before. Blue is going now.

Ahh I wish we could see just ONE more piece today!! Maybe they’re going to wait until the first lift hill support is in until they add another piece of track.

Am I seeing things, or is there another support in place for the brake run, right behind the transfer shed??

No. Behind the transfer shed. I can't figure out how to screenshot on this computer... I'm dumb.
