BTW it's spelled Moly, not Molly...just sayin'.
Ah right, thanks @Antinos!
Vertical construction has begun:-
Here is the link to the webcam:-
That transition is very interesting. I've always been a fan of that type of feeling so I think I'll enjoy it.
^Yeah, wow that's an impressive track twist - looks like it'll be pretty close to the train's turning limit!
The angle from the webcam sure skews the looks of that piece. What looks like a bizarre transition looks completely fine from the ground shots.
Great to see vertical construction though!
Man this thing is flying up crazy fast so far. First of the loop supports have gone in as well as the final brake run.
The loop is either complete or waiting to be topped off.
(Oops it won’t upload my screenshot)
Nope, it's only half completed.

Also, today the park announced the return of their Flying Scooters:-
I came twice.
If I had a pound for every time this is said soon after vertical construction starts...jeez. It's almost on the same level as "it look's slow" after the first test run.
Maybe I'm getting old.
We are. Once that concrete footers are in place, it can literally take an hour to get two supports in place and install a piece of track. If I got 2 dudes from here and a crane I've never done, I could get this much work done too. Except, these are professionals.. so they will take twice as long because.. you know.. money.. lol
Look at that sweet ejector.
