I totally agree. I'm glad even though it's a pier, they're putting love into the ride and not making it look too generic or cheap.

I think it's great that the euro fighters only have one car per train-- leaves so much possibility for great train designs like this.

This probably has been metioned before on other threads, but why do they have the "Euro-Fighter Front" label on it. I don't think the construction crew is that stupid.

It's so they don't get the hoisting brackets backwards.

More from the Galveston Island Tourism Facebook page. Looks like they were open for the employees for some testing.

Hopefully they will start testing iron shark soon. A few pictures I saw yesterday suggested they may be torque checking the track bolts.

Iron Shark looks nice. I like the colors.
Are we sure this isn't a Mack megacoaster? :p
Looking forward to testing.
