I believe that is how it will sit when its not being used.  So they are ready to rock and roll. We may see more work to the lift / drop tomorrow sicne they have the pieces ready to go for the spine of the drop.

How many times do we have to say or talk about Zeus?

Probably every time he moves.

Isn't that a bit excessive? Seems like that last couple pages are about nothing in particular...

I was just over exaggerating, we will probably hear that name a lot in the next few months though.

We’ve been waiting for Zeus to get built because that means the lift hill and layout will start getting put up quickly. With Zeus up we will have the lift hill complete by early November. It’s about to get exciting with daily progress

Cause naming a crane, and debating if it's called clifford or zeus is discussion. Seems like some of y'all need some other hobbies if you got that much time on your hands. All good being excited but jeeeezz. The same things keep getting said over and over. It's hard to find actual updates when there's so much on here that doesn't matter. Not all of us have time to go through 10 pages of nonsense.

Then like I said, contribute something worth discussing.  Otherwise, you can’t complain.  Don’t bring forth a problem if you don’t have a solution.

I am contributing in saying that it's hard to find actual updates on here cause of this nonsense. So instead of saying the same thing that has been said over and over post actual updates.

Said the problem and solution. Happy now?? Probably not.... As I said some people don't have all day to read through pages of nothing. I think having a chat on this site would help this problem 100% but what do I know??

I understand where you are coming from, but also understand you are contributing to "cluttering the forum with not important information" to others trying to get quick updates.

Oh believe me I get it, I just feel like it needed to be said. Not all of us have free time all day and it's hard to see the "real" updates. How else could it have been addressed? Just seems like this forum is filled with meaningless posts.

Actually, where you have the backbone is another footer. The backbone footer is behind that.

Oh my bad, I usually get those two footers confused, I forgot how steep this drop is going to be!

I don't think we're going to crest the horizon from this webcam's perspective. I expect to come close though!

How about this. Instead of coming to the forum and looking for updates on the construction of this coaster, maybe look at the webcam and see what it looks like? I think this would solve your “problems”. I personally am amazed at how that tiny little vehicle can lift all that weight in the air.

Did they install lighting back by the turnaround into the transfer shed area? I don’t remember anything being illuminated back there.

It's not lighting up anymore, was it continuous or was it illuminated for only a little bit?

It was continuous for about the 20 minutes that I kept glancing at it.  Maybe someone was back there working and they’re done for the night.
