1. Wes is definitely the coolest poster on the forums :lmao:
2. I'll probably be hitting up CT in the coming weeks and knowing how fast this project has been going up, I can't wait to see what's been done.

I just with the park would come up with a teaser site like they did with Griffon (or like most other parks do with major new rides). On another note has anybody scanned the QR codes yet? I'm interested in seeing the next teaser.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

^ The QR code now takes you to the video that is posted right above your post.

I just got back from the park and I will say they have done a wonderful job decorating the place like they usually do. Pompeii is the highlight of the event.

On Verbolten, they have almost finished putting up the wall on the side viewable from guests so by next week you will no longer be able to see the track inside the building. Pictures below:

It's good to see Verbolten moving right along, especially after all the fits and starts with Mach Tower this year.

This is going to be an awesome coaster to ride next summer, seeing the construction photos really gets you pumped up to see the finished product!

Second to last picture- What are those?

Thanks for the update, the coaster looks so small with that building hugging it. I wonder if they'll theme the outside or just leave it black

Agreed on the Footers. But those don't look like supports to me.

I'm curious about something else.

Is the old waterfall going to be restored? That was always a nice feature.

I don't remember the waterfall, but that is definately what it looks like.
