    I bet the ride will look stunning off ride, especially standing underneath the inline twist, you could almost high-five the riders!

    That tunnel is really interesting. I'm excited to see it materialise!

    Love that there's a tunnel, hoping for more surprises as it's erected.

    Another update... Looks like they've flattened out the north-west area of the ride, ready for turfing, which will probably only happen once the coaster has been erected:-

    It's more so for site access than for turfing...

    I think at this stage this is probably the most likely. Big cranes tend to like being on level ground.

    It may well also become part of a turfed area, but I don't think that's what they're leveling the ground for.

    Wandering around the park yesterday, its really good how the layout is interacting with the existing infrastructure - headchoppers underneath the Big Dipper looking most fine.

    Great to know it's not going to be a concrete tunnel! Looks at The Smiler in disgust.

    Another update:- Not all that much has changed, except for the tunel walls being painted black.

    When this was announced I assumed this would be open for the start of the season but there's still no track on site. Is this more likely going to open in the summer?

    Nah this thing should fly up as soon as track arrives. I mean the track for the Smiler arrived very late the previous year, if I remember correctly and that was meant to be open for the start of the season. Yeah it was delayed by a couple of months, which I'm pretty sure was due to problems with the foundation or something, could be wrong though.

    It's supposed to open in Spring next year. They've said from the start that most of the building work (including track) will be done in the close season.
