    Garden update: Good news! They've cleared out the overrun grass and weeds in the garden bed! Glad it's getting attention for Winterfest. Screen Shot 2017-12-05 at 11.48.00 AM.jpg

    Garden update: Lots of turned over soil! Hope they worked some fertilizer in there to really help with garden beds in 2018. Screen Shot 2017-12-12 at 4.34.06 PM.jpg

    The pin-style support trusses remind me so much of El Locos. A lot of Schilke projects seem to have a lot of pin-type mechanisms going on for some reason, maybe it's just coincidence.

    Weird things Jarrett notices aside, I already love the look of it! That's a lovely shade of brown, that angle's going to look even better when it's done!

    The color of the supports reminds me of Icon, but Californianized!

    Garden update: They've put a bit of metal over the soil! Hopefully they didn't plant anything yet, or those plants are ruined!

    ^Well 3/4 of it is...

    It's funny the dive loop looks more normal on this than on Wonder Woman. It might just be the angle @Pear's photo was taken.

    Garden update: A lot of neglect has set in sadly. The bed is flooded, and they seem to be staging some sort of orange lawn ornaments nearby?

    My biggest concern is the fact that they've completely blocked the garden off from the path! How are they supposed to get to it now?

    It looks HUGE... then you look at it in comparison with the car beside it and realise its actual scale.

    I definitely think this looks like the nicer of the two raptors.

    The green in the logo is gross, I've only just noticed it. The final render of the logo makes the logo look really red/green, which should never be seen (unless at Christmas). I wish they'd have used both tones of the coaster itself.
