Now that the ground has been broken and the structure will start to rise, I think it's time for everyone to eat a peanut butter and banana sandwich to celebrate this occasion (if you want to eat this sandwich fried, then go ahead lest you want your belly to stick out so much you cannot fit into the restraints and be denied to ride unless you are already a skinny wink and the extra calories won't hurt you).
I think my pillow wants to impersonate as Elvis.
"Treated like a fool, treat me mean and cruel, but love me. Lie your head on me and go right off to sleep, just love me! Thank you, thank you very much!
My wife and I took a detour on the way to the grocery store to check out the progress of the contruction first hand. I had been keeping an eye on construction. Had been away for a week or so decided to drive past and luck would have it my wife's camera was in her purse! I present to you our findings!

Despite the publicity material using a Morgan train to promote this recreation of the Zippin Pippin, the coaster will actually utilize standard PTC three-bench rolling stock. While not new, these are rehabbed trains that operated briefly on Thunder Eagle in Pigeon Forge, TN. (More info on TE and Carl Ragan's pic can be found at: http://rcdb.com/606.htm)
The track layout is the same as the original, according to one of the workers laying the foundation the footings and structure have been redesigned. There are no original parts and pieces being used. Green Bay is bringing some of the original hardware up to Bay Beach for display purposes. I'm updating the progress about every week and have gained access to go inside the fence, a couple of posts ago they even let me snap a couple of pictures of the blueprints. You can keep up to date at: http://zippinpippin.blogspot.com/
I feel like not many people are following Zippin' Pippin'. It's being built pretty fast (or atleast it seems like it). Summer 11' I'll probably try to make a trip to Valley Fair, Bay Beach, and the Dells. Can't wait!
I have a hard time ranking coasters so here are just some of my favorites |Intimidator 305|Maverick|Skyrush|Voyage|Shivering Timbers|Goliath SFOG|Fahrenheit|Banshee|Mystery Mine|Cornball Express|Cheetah Hunt|
