I’m so ready for these totally arbitrary and nonsensical covid rules to be over.  So a waterpark with no masks was fine all summer but they can’t run a coaster Or a Scrambler with a bunch of empt

This is life in Illinois. We're everything that's wrong with California, without the view.

Yeah, quite honestly, I think some of you are making a mountain out of a molehill. Lots of hangars are temporary in nature, so this structure is fine by me.

 

Nah, I'm just critiquing a design choice. I'll still ride the thing and love it nonetheless!

^I'm pretty sure the only B&M Wing Coaster without the main panel being located there is Wild Eagle. It's a pretty good idea to have it located there so that operator can see what all is going on on the platform.

^ That is the most odd place a ride operator booth has been placed, right above the track! I'm sure it'll be interesting working up there.

 

Lots of coasters have their main control elevated above the track. Kingda Ka, X2, and SheiKra all have consoles like this.

Based on my Wild Eagle experience last weekend, I think it'll be a lot of fun--especially with the proposed "keyhole" element. It is going to be tough to top Wild Eagle in terms of location, though.

I'm watching the Webcame closely and I feel like they are about to test it any minute..

 

Looks like they're going to start with small movements (i.e., moving the train from the station back to the brake run) first before they do a full circuit test.

 

The park also mentioned on Twitter that the trains will have the covers shown in the concept art.

But it's odd!

 

And disturbing!

 

Yet it makes sense.
