"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015

Started on page 43, well actually page 30 but the red track on 43

Quote from page 43:

I just got back from the park.
Just 6 pieces of track and a lot of tiny support pieces around.

I think it is an Intamin. but we will see.

here are some close up pics.

Someone posted a video to KD fansite(from onboard americana) showing the construction activity but for some reason there wasn't much,if any movement from the two large cranes on site but their boom's were up which means they were moving something around on site.

I'm going to the park tomorrow so I'll be sure to take a look around the construction site while riding anaconda....too bad someone can't just sneak their way on top of FOF's building with a camera to get some good video footage of what's going on over there.

Even if that was possible, Flight of Fear was closed when I went over there early on. And Volcano didn't open until about an hour and a half after park opening I believe it was... Shockwave got stuck on the lift hill too. There were just several rides that were closed/open late. FoF may have opened up later in the day though- I never went back to check.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Apparently more track has shown up according to Coaster Crew's twitter. Transfer track of sorts they say.

All I want is a chainlift!
