Ah i see that'd be such a reach though
I don't think they said "world's first" though so it could still be the first launched inverting spinner in the States.
Besides let's be honest - do you think anyone over here in the States cares about a coaster in Asia? No. No they don't.
I could see them pulling some of those bs records together to create a sort of "Most Extreme Spinning Coaster" approach similar to what they did with Outlaw Run. Honestly, the "Most Daring Wood Coaster" billboard for Outlaw Run near the park is enticing and had I been GP and seen that I would have wanted to go find out more about it.
Interested to see the Roman tie in with the theming, how much of that they can market before it stops feeling like the 1880's SDC we all know and love.
I think it's going to be centered around time travel. Something like "Authentic Tours of Ancient Rome!* See Professor Notaconman for details!"
*Roman tours may involve cheap props in an attempt to sucker you out of your money. No refunds.
This week's update...
Paint has appeared on the station. Announcement set for August. Not much has changed with track due to wet weather and a nearby earthquake (25 miles away)
Full Update and More Photos: HERE
NEW TEASER SIGN:
Hang on, did they actually rivet that sign into the wall, then shove a big huge NAIL into there for authenticity? Kudos SDC!
No the "nail" is part of the sign, it's not real
why hasn't a new construction update come out yet?
Because I was covering the other two parks in the state this past weekend and didn't get down to SDC. I'll be there Friday.
Surprise! Surprise! I had a reader send in photos - so we have an update after all.
MORE PHOTOS & FULL UPDATE: HERE
ANNOUNCEMENT SCHEDULED FOR AUGUST 16TH!

Oh, that's a shame, I was sat on the edge of my seat in antici.....
Yeah joke all you want, but this is to prevent posts like this....
Check out these aerial photos of the construction site
Nice! Have you got a source for them? It would be great to see them in a higher resolution.
They are from my blog. I'll see if I can get the higher resolution photos posted
I've found them on your site - a link here should be fine in case people want to look at them better (plus, you've already done a lot of the analysing):
Finally, an update. I was beginning to wonder why you'd gotten so lazy.
Are you invited to the event?
