The station building isn't done yet
Just remember, by insulting the station you are directly waging war on Islam.
Construction update video from inside of the park, looks great;
You're right, Steeplechase's sign is not affected, at all. Absolutely not whatsoever*
*Apart from the fact it has a massive support smack bang in the middle of it
Gotta agree, that does look a bit messy

It seems there is a support which isn't seen in the animation.
@Scott88 @Temleh Can you shine any information on this odd support?
It’s being stored there temporarily as there’s no space left on the ground to lay it flat! It’s for the yet to be installed turn adjacent to Grand Prix.
^Yeah, I was thinking that, although I think it's strange how it's not lying flat on the ground. How are they keeping it stood up?
It’s propped up against the already installed track and tied down. Protective padding in between the two, of course.
This is why we can't have nice things ...
The whole point of Mack desinging the current lapbar is becuase it has he security of the OTSR's yet still keeping upper body movement free...
If this was Towers building Icon we would have a video of Francis Jackson telling us all about it!
I'd like to think we are moving into a time when OTSR's are completely unnecessary.
The difference in Cheetah Hunt and Taron for example is ridiculous. I found CH very uncomfortable as my shoulders were touching the restraint the whole time. Ruins any decent airtime moments too.
You didn't blank out his twitter username.....
COASTER NERDS ASSEMBLE WE NEED TO TELL A STRANGER THEIR OPINION IS WRONG
Looks awesome, great pics, thanks for collecting ATI. Not giving you a like though as completely ruined the post with the final pic.
Also thanks to PBE for the videos, they are very much appreciated.
There's a place for people who don't feel safe with just a lap bar. It's called off the ing ride. People like that will be clogging up the queue like the plaque in a fat person's arteries JUST so they can have a moan afterwards.
"My son tried to get out of his seat mid-ride and ALMOST DIED!!! Outrageous!!"
Yeah, I saved the best till last!
1 fewer person in the queue then, fantastic.
I hope no one shows them a picture of G-Force at Drayton Manor, I fear they might pop a vein...
Moaning about the safety design of an incredibly technologically advanced rollercoaster which is in a park with 4 ancient woodies & a massive water ride with just grab rails is perplexing.
I like the way the tweeter thinks that they know about gravity but Mack don't. Or that they had a design meeting where they thought 'these lapbars might kill a kid or two, but you know what LET'S DO IT ANYWAY'.
