Yeah, even if it just entailed them better disguising the red metal frame of the bridge, that would be enough for me. Hopefully we'll see a few finishing touches on the bridge before the ride opens!

I don't think they will add anything else to the bridge, at least not something like siding. The plans that were leaked of the bridge look just as the bridge does now. The only thing that I think still needs to be added is possibly a sign at the entrance of the bridge. Other than that, I think it is pretty much finished.

For some reason, I recall the bridge being engulfed in overgrown vines. Like they were trying to crush the whole bridge.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

I don't recall anything like this in the concept art or plans, though it has been stated that the black forest has something to do with the collapse of the bridge in the 'story' of the ride. I think that would be an amazing touch to have either a mess of vines crawling around the structure or one massive one strangling it. Seeing what they've done with the station so far it's a possibility we might see something like this, but that's speculation on my part.

I've gone pantless!

Here's what they had on display during the hard hat tour.

Sorry for the poor quality.

It's kind of hilarious that they're using B&M track on all the artwork. I know people have mentioned the absurdity of the inverted track on some of the other collateral, but even in the latest stuff it's B&M track. There was one concept painting of the bridge section that came out before the ride was announced officially that accurately portrays the track.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

Uh, what's the problem with that? I'm pretty sure that die-hard enthusiasts are the only ones who care...

^^^Yeah! See! Vines n' sh!t!

It also looks as if you would dive through some sort of thicket as well. That would be cool!

I can't see that happening to the ride. It would be cool to have vines crawling all over it like the station, but what we see in that image is so far from the reality of what we'll actually get. I think the artist was trying to combine the sensations that we'll be subjected to in the show building with the final drop element for a more complete depiction of the ride in general.
