I agree. We'll be at the park this weekend to get more photos. So glad the park is finally reopening.

This is my first time ever even looking at this topic.... This thing looks and sounds pretty cool I'll say, although I think a B&M dive would've been better. Whatever though, it's a new coaster that is sure to be very unique and I'm excited to ride it come 2018. I think the Steampunk theme will be pretty awesome and it will fit the park well. I'll be at SDC next week so if I can get any pictures I'll make sure to post them on here.

Ok, now that's just ridiculous. I understand maybe 1 level over the loading platform for possible queue and 1 under for maintenance, but two above and below is overkill.

How do you know it's overkill? For all we know the building could be mixed use with even office spaces on the top floor. I wouldn't say 'overkill'...

The first picture suggest the platform is going to be at the very top of that structure. I wonder if we're looking at a similar layout to Thunderation with the majority of the layout coming from a drop straight out of the station.

Going to be a good hike up the stairs when it's open! Or there will be some sort of connecting bridge. :p
 
holy cow i think you might be right... that's gotta be at LEAST a 70ft drop straight out of the station if that's what we're looking at

From what Ive heard from my sources this ride is supposed to be multi launched so IF it is gonna start with a huge drop that dives underground (big hole dug near station with footers leading down into it) plus at leased 2 launches this will be a really long coaster. Cant wait till august when the announcement comes. also cant wait until the coaster itself goes vertical and track starts showing up.

Looking a little to the right of the center of this pic there are footers leading up in a swooping motion then they just stop and the only other footers are in the opposite direction. This looks like its either gonna have a large dive in the other direction or maybe even a weird top hat. what do you think? (picture from MidwestInfoGuide)

It will have inversions. There's a good chance there will even be interlocking inversions - or at least the footers are making it look that way.

I know some of these pictures are already on here but I was at the park this last Wednesday and took some pictures-











This thing is going to be sweet and I'm so pumped for 2018.

So a few of us were talking tonight and we think the station will be a lot like Lightning Run with the maintenance bay located right under the load platform and an elevator lift right before the station.

Here's a video of LR to show what we mean

^I think you might be right. I remember the guys at Dollywood saying they loved the mechanism, so it's plausible they've gone for a similar thing here.

Still, that doesn't take up half of that huge building... what's the rest for? :p
