    Some more great drone shots. Progress seems to have moved to laying cement for the queue line.

    I don't know if I've already said this, but I think it's hilarious how the track has to shift ever so slightly to the right to enter the transfer track from the main brakes.

    ^Ya you've said it before. It cracks me up too (And makes me wonder how that would feel, being a shift in track)!

    Giving a bump, Twisted Timbers has not officially tested yet as they're waiting to finish pouring for the new queue. Due to the layout of the ride it is difficult to get into the centerfield with a large vehicle, especially something like a cement truck.

    Also be scared for the larger folk. I'm told the 2nd gen RMC trains might have even tighter tolerances than the 1st gens.

    Quick question, larger in terms of height or... chub? I'm 6'1" but not fat so I'm hoping for the future that it's a chub thing and not as much a height issue...

    Now they are some NICE trains! So I take it they're having a blue train and a green train?

    This does look to be a beautiful rollercoaster. I can't wait to ride it.

    Chubs. If you have a gut or thick thighs they might give you trouble.
