New pics from 2-12-09

Some more pics from today February 12th.

They were not working at all on the coaster. I think they were more concerned with getting the stage ready for two shows this weekend. Hopefully the tower will start to rise soon!!

Track to nowhere! Looks like a Sansei shuttle loop!

Love the grass and pavement. Wonder if it will survive the hordes of people in this area for shows.

Great update! The coaster looks so full of turns its going to be fantastic.

The picture of the drop right after the 3rd MCBR is coming towards the viewer.

I know the MCBR after the noninverting loop, the building crash through turn and the preceeding MCBR are built, but has anything been built from the station to the first MCBR? What about from the 2nd mid course to the 3rd?

That drops reminds me of Renegade, plus an extra turn.

This thing is beginning to have all kinds of awesome stuff. Much more impressive than I was expecting.

But I still think the supports look ugly. ;)

It wouldn't be too difficult for someone to find this thread so Universal already knows people are entering for others, using multiple e-mail addresses or linking without typing in the URL.

NBC probably would do that as an extension of Universal. I remember an article about hired people looking for copyrighted NBC material on the Youtube.

Am I the only one who found that survey really long and boring? I mean, I answered their questions honestly. But dang, IMO a survey should take 5-15 minutes not a half hour like it took me.

And if you sign up for the Advisory Board, it takes even LONGER to finish this survey.

But, if I get more tickets, I'll all for it. ;)

I did the whole survey but not the advisory board. I agree that the survey was long and they never did specify how many tickets they are giving away for respondents.

So I never got an email saying I won, but I did get an email asking me to fill out a survey about winning. Odd.

I do love the questions about my last visit to Orlando. Yeah, I'm here now.

^Yeah, I just got the survey, too, but never received a notification of winning tickets. Oh well. I filled it out anyway. Maybe I'll be luckier this time around!
