If I read it right Artemis might be almost 420 feet tall if needed. - Source from the Sterrett website.

Kind of cool that we are watching cranes be assembled as a precursor to the actual ride. The anticipation, decoding, announcement, and construction of new coasters is almost more fun than riding the ride itself.

Also just to note,  the white semi and one of the forklifts have been moving four track pieces which look to be pieces of the drop over behind Artemis.

Yeah, I noticed that. I hope we can get some more drop installed soon!

What they are currently shipping is in purple, and the track pile I think they're getting it from is in orange. I think they will fully install the drop, and then work on the lift hill. Edit: sorry for the double post.

When the lift hill is completed, will they move the camera to show the construction of the rest of the ride?

The camera will most likely stay where it is.

They are different camera. KI didn't move the cam for the MT construction.  They also left it there and is still currently there as the most boring camera on the site. Don't hold your breath if you think the camera will move. Cedar Point has been moving there cameras  for years. The quality of the cams at CP and Carowinds are way worse then the stay put cams that KI has. You can disagree but on this case you are probably 99% wrong lol. Sorry.

Wasn't the construction cam for MT still in the same place for MT? If so obviously they arent gonna move it, they cant ! Where are they gonna put it, on a tree? With orion i definitely see them moving the cam along with the construction.

Adding to this: That camera appears to be sitting in/on a milk crate held down by bricks. You can see it while you’re on Diamondback.

I'm actually not sure. I have no idea who it is. Just saw it and figured "this would give Maverick a chuckle". And it's related to construction pics, so dont @ me.

Not only that, they're also a bit of a xenophobe!

Also, and probably less important, they don't know the difference between "then" and "than." :P

I haven't had White Castle in a while. Years ago, when we went to a New Years Eve party, we bought a big thing of white castle sandwiches and took it to the party. Anyways, let's get back on topic.
