Tons and tons of new construction photos popping up. This thing is looking like it's going to be massive. Still have no idea how the layout is looking yet though, but I might head over there in about a month or so to check it out and I'll put something together to show where this thing is going.
Awesome to hear. How tall would you estimate the lift is from the base? It's dropping into a valley, so if the lift reaches 100ft and it drops another 50ft into the valley this thing could be a monster.

I'd say right now close to 75feet with at least another 25, maybe 50 to go.
As promised here are photos from today of the non-coaster.
Gee, I wonder what they are building back here...
It must be some sort of drive-in movie theatre, because they aren't building a coaster.
No sir, park employees know of no coaster being installed, in fact, you don't see that construction going on back there.
It's purely your imagination.
In fact this here is a land mine training facility and not to be used as footers for a coaster that might possibly swing around behind say an opera house.
And just to re-enforce the fact that we are not building anything at all, we are putting up this fence so you can't see what's not going on.
And here is more of that drive-in movie screen structure, as you can see from the angle, part of your movie might be cut off. Maybe they just haven't put up the other half of the triangle yet.
It's gonna be a tall whatever, maybe its for training of fireman, I mean, they need training on rescues from tall heights, say 10 stories and more.
They are still working on that tornado shelter thats located somewhat close to the movie screen, but totally possible that the distance between the two is far enough that if Mr. Tornado hit, he'd miss one or the other.
Perhaps this is where you will purchase your movie tickets.
It appears to be large enough to accommodate about a hundred people, maybe more if you squish.
So yeah, hmmm, I know, maybe its a ski slope!
I'd say it's plausible that it could be a ski slope. But not likely.
Because I saw Rocky Mountain stamped on one of those
And Rocky Mountain designs and builds wooden roller coasters with a state of art track system...
and this is topper track, therefore this MUST be a wooden coaster. If it looks like a duck....
Even the GP knows they are building a wooden coaster, it's slightly obvious, but the staff is still supposed to ignore that little project back there, it doesn't exist.
Word on the street is the park might not make an announcement until September/October. By then you'll probably see a train running around on it!
I'd say they might ought to think about making that announcement soon, doubtful it can be hidden too much longer...
