I don’t see it. It looks like they are currently setting pieces for the station in place.

It looks like they are lifting a piece of brake run track to install!

Yeah! I was only an hour off on my guess :P

Anyone else having connection issues with the cam right now?


Yes. I was having delay issues and couldn’t see what you were seeing.

It looks like we have even more brake run track waiting to be installed!

I'm guessing B&M (and their brake caliper sub if they have one) probably have an ideal velocity for the train speed when entering a brake run which they have determined after designing many coasters. The ridiculous height of Orion's (and Leviathan's) brake run is probably a function of that ideal train speed and the high cost of making a longer course for the train to lose more energy before hitting the brakes. Fury's brakes are significantly lower presumably due to the overall ride length.

Another piece of the brake run is up!

It would be amazing if we could get a 3rd today. But that's unlikely.

Edit: There are more brake run supports by the lift hill!

In one of the behind the scenes videos the project manager said they would be finished with the lift hill by the “end of October or first week of November”. 
I’m hoping they start cranking it out when Zeus goes up.

Cleo's boom is raising, could we possibly get more track in today?

I think not. I think she may be connected to hold the track until tomorrow.

It should be topped off by the end of the month if weather permits. They are ahead of schedule.

I’m sure they hired an outside firm to produce the commercials. I wouldn’t hold my breath though, Yukon Striker & Copperhead haven’t received these animated commercials sadly. I personally love them.
