Well will you look at that! It's coaster-crazy actually making an update to his own topic, and with HIS own pictures! AMAZING!

 

... anywho, yes, I'm actually making an update, and it's sure been a long time. There has been a ton of progress on the ride since the last update I've made as well as the last update off of the Boardwalk's Facebook page. The whole building has been stuckoed and the windows are all in the building. Shingles and wooden panels are also starting to appear on the building. But, the most exciting thing I noticed today was track! Various pieces of sloped and curved track appeared on the back side of the Haunted Castle. I was so excited to see it there. It's only a matter of time before this ride opens up.

 

Enjoy the update, cause who knows how long it will be till I post another one!

Frontal side of the NEW Haunted Castle. Notice the newly put up shingles and stuckoed building.

Closer shot of the new shingles. Also notice the windows they put in a couple weeks ago. Looking good!

Wide shot of the Haunted Castle. The building to the left of the ride is newly painted. Those cheese looking things were completely blue last year - now they're orange!

They build fast! It seemed like it was just the other day when I first saw the concrete pad in that first few posts.

Spiral staircase alert! I am told these will be placed along side the ride elevator.

Super rare 'undressed' ferris wheel shot! I believe the cars are newly painted and will be put back on soon. But why has the color of the frame changed from white to tan?

^Thanks for the comment!

======================

 

Welcome to the next update on the Haunted Castle - it's also my 16th birthday today! Anywho, today there seemed to be a lot more progress on the ride. Almost all of the shingles were completed, wood was going up, there was track about, AND themeing has started to show up on the walls inside the ride! It was very exciting. The ride is really moving along very quickly and the Memorial Day weekend opening date might just become a reality. I'm hoping to be there on opening day if I can find out when that will be.

 

Enjoy the update!

Front-side view of the Haunted Castle. It's coming along!

More progress...

hc3.jpg.975d3a50659af0e8f06d54a61d378e84.jpg

Farther out view of the ride. It sure is HUGE!

hc4.jpg.4f917de34c702c254bb8bf5b9f491914.jpg

This is where the ride will come OUT of the basement and back into the station. Notice the themeing on the walls and that animatronic in the corner!

hc5.jpg.55016543921d8f7f872d9a867ac2d80b.jpg

Another angle of the ride.

hc6.jpg.f4ed34055716975cee717685a8212baf.jpg

Back-side of the new ride. This deck is for the employee lounge which is located directly next to the ride. That railing is new.

hc7.jpg.c901d1ae056bea9f319969d2a5149984.jpg

More curved track has appeared! It's only a matter of time for the cars....

hc8.jpg.625506753aab4620b99bc885070a3bca.jpg

More dark ride trackiness!

hc9.jpg.9f45dac3a9901cec1b3d69ca14db28f7.jpg

This was on the track pieces. The company that made the track!

hc10.jpg.eafc8f813b633e97f4913e8258c5d0ed.jpg

Back side of the ride is looking great!

Thanks for checking this update out! Come back next week for another update!
