Just wondering, what happens after the 90* curve over Comet?

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

It goes down a slight hill behind the kiddie rides, makes a slight curve to the right near Scrambler while rising, then goes into the reduction brake.

I'm not surprised. Besides the new trains and brakes, I have a feeling that most of the Hollow will still be a construction zone even at that point.

I noticed that in the second to last update, they have pulled some of the Comet station's facade off. Does that have to do with the clearance check, or does is it appear to be getting a refresh?

With all the changes to SDL, I suspect the ride will need to be tested just as much as Skyrush, so I'm not surprised either.

This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

Here is a link to a local news station that has pictures of Skyrush, it has a few pictures I haven't seen such as pictures upclose to Comet's station.
