I think @King Ding Dong was being sarcastic.

We can use our imagination for a few hours and guess what got done without seeing the cam.

I would imagine since the brake run is pretty much done that they will probably get the supports ready to put in place for the next section of the lift.  They also might place some more of the drop since they moved those pieces over on Friday.

I wonder if this means we'll have better webcam views. 

I don't think a software update is going to give you a different view.

 

Guess i'll watch the CP cam's for no reason until Ki's are ready!

It didn't look like the big white crane was complete over the weekend, so I'm guessing they wont be installing much lift tack or supports until that's done, guessing that will probably be today hopefully

Yeah probably more like Nintendo’s standard note with each system update:

Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience

:rolleyes:

On another note has anyone here tried Google Earth in VR?  It really is fascinating being able to fly around a park and look at stuff in 3D from whatever perspective you want.  It really would be incredible if in the future the park could set up a camera system with a live VR feed of a coaster construction.  Possibly could even be technically accomplished now on some level with a few stand-off drones hovering a safe distance away.

They still have another big crane to assemble before they complete the lift hill.  There will be two big cranes holding/lifting track and one crane holding the basket of workers.

LOvinMe is right.  Wonder what they will get done while the cranes are being built?  I suspect basically any area that will need crane use.   I guess I am wondering most when they also start on other areas of the coaster.  Either way we are getting much closer to the good stuff.

That is not correct. There will only be the two large cranes currently assembled. The large white one in the parking lot will be used to bring up the coaster workers to bolt the pieces together. 76c0b6111cf1a4d5228bf43ababb661d.jpg

Don't forget to credit your source even if its yourself!

This is from page 81 on this thread. The crane in the parking lot is much larger than Cleo and friends. I drove by when Cleo was in the parking lot and it is noticeably larger.

Is the white truck crane in the parking lot even tall enough to reach that high?

I believe that the crane in the parking lot is this model or something very similar.

It does seem that a larger boom can be added to this crane to increase its height so that is what may be done to get it up to ~300 feet.

Ha! You guys crack me up. We can survive a couple days without a webcam. My lips need to be sealed, just so I dont ruffle any feathers, or whatever you want to call it.

Yeah no thank you. Just 1 comment off topic here but I hope its not like that every day next season. I'd hate to not be able to make a trip to CP due to it getting rekt'd.

I noticed that as well. The part they rebuilt has really helped and it was quick yesterday.

 

Yes, and it has been very smooth all year so what happened?   We were on train 1 which of 1 and 2 is better..   Something changed.

LOLOL this kids is why you learn to elaborate in english class.

Sometimes when there is the slightest chance of risk they will close the webcams down if anything could go wrong it will mentality.

In this case putting the crane together, or maybe bringing something into the sight they dont want us to see.. or

simply they might actually be updating

Off topic...I agree about Cedar Point, but don't think it will be completely wrecked.  I'm sure I'll make it up 2 or 3 times.  I guess that third or more trip depends on how long the waits were on the other trips.  

So have we confirmed the crane in the lot is tall enough? I didn't think it was, but wasn't quite sure how many times that can extend or whatnot.   If it is..then they are indeed very close. I suspect they do some cam stuff of the construction, so even if live stuff is down, we should be able to see some stuff down the line of it. I'd love to see it in real time but understand the danger involved.

This sucks.  That is all, as there are no construction updates.  Carry on.

I feel ya. I keep checking back every hour or so.

What if the webcams are off because they also don't want us to see the area 72 bathrooms being installed... :ph34r:
