Kennywood has been sharing some great updates on Twitter on the construction of Steel Curtain!

https://twitter.com/Kenny_Kangaroo/status/1072599658181128193

It’s been an EXCITING day at the #SteelCurtain construction site! The first of the many track segments that make up the coaster’s twisted layout was carefully lifted into place. Nowhere to go but up!

We have a cutback! This will be the last of Steel Curtain’s nine inversions. Which one are you most excited for!?

Looks like Vekomas new track (which would make sense). I think this is my most anticipated new ride next year
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

There was a great update (and also a Facebook live video) posted today by Kennywood's PR guy Nick, showing off that Steel Curtain's vertical construction has now also begun in the lagoon area!! :) I am getting more and more excited for my home park's new addition with each new update and picture I see! We were at Holiday Lights on Sunday, and when we rode Thomas with our girls, you can get a great look at the construction area. Things look big already, so I can only imagine what it will be like when they top this thing off at a full 40 feet taller than their Skycoaster! :lover:

Looking good! Still amazed at how they've managed to wedge such a big ride into that space.

It is such a weird looking ride, but I really like it! Can't wait to see more.
