The coaster went vertical early this morning, and I have some construction pics. I'll try and keep TPR updated every 3 - 4 days at least and i'll take photos before work each day too :P

We have erection! So far the station, pre lift and the first part of the lift hill is installed.

A bit of a look of where the attraction is located, at the front of the park next to the ticket booths.

The park had a puzzle game for the coaster on their Facebook, here's what it looks like put together...

...but looking at it in puzzle form reveals this.

4 across, and new restraints? No more shoulder harnesses? No more lap bar coming from the side?

The four-across should offer some pretty good rides on the outside seats, farther from the heartline! And if this thing is really lapbar-only, that drop... :lover:

I am genuinely excited for this. Seems like a great addition for this park.

The park has now set up a time lapse camera to show the progress of the new roller coaster. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150295517517182.348654.106147617181

Batman Adventure The Ride 2 is closing on the 15th of October permanently according to the website 'to make way for an exciting new attraction' http://movieworld.myfun.com.au/Attractions/Attractions-Maintenance.aspx it kind of comes out of no where, and means to the 2 dark family rides at the park are now gone with Looney Tunes already gone and no sign yet of its replacement. For those not familiar with the park BATR2 was a simulator, however with what the park has and is doing I have faith that we will see a great replacement; no doubt still something to do with DC comics since that seems to be the theme of the front of the park. With all this updating of the park, maybe we will get to see Lethal Weapon get an update with trains thats won't give you painful headache each rides? =)

Still on Movie World the park is starting their Halloween 'Fright Nights' this weekend and its looking pretty cool by the sound of things; which is a pretty cool thing since Halloween isn't anywhere near as big here as it is in America.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

Hopefully the lap bars will still keep the height restriction down. One of the things that makes the S&S two-part restraint system great is that 48" kids can ride those rides.

I was at the park today and if the signs up around the place are anything to go by, it will indeed have 4 across riders, 2 rows per car. I have taken a couple of pics here for you to see, although I am sorry about the quality as I forgot my camera and had to use my phone.
Will post some new pics next weekend after our next park visit.

The add seems to give away it is a 4 across, 2 row seating car.
Picture 021.jpg
A lot of these supports have gone up since monday when we drove past...it is going vertical very fast.
Picture 015.jpg
A nice wide lift hill for a 4 across seating car....I think i have said 4 across enough now.
Picture 024.jpg
Lots more curvy track pieces to come....

If gossip from the park staff is anything to go by, the Looney Toons River Ride and the Batman2 rides will both be replaced with new rides by the end of next year, so fingers crossed for something good to happen there.
Till next week.

At this rate they'll be testing the ride by the end of December!

This is one of the fastest non-fair coaster assemblies I've ever seen!
