And a few more for viewing pleasure.
After originally failing some quality control checks it seems new parts have been shipped and the Mack Blue Fire clone has gone vertical
Nice. Store 'em in the mud. That'll help with any quality issues and fault finding.
Heres a really cool aerial shot of the park as it moves forwards
B&M Wing looks amazing from the ground!
Lol I like the part of rock they had to cut out because it failed clearance.
And it doesn't look like they're done yet, too!

So much beautiful theming, but no headchoppers or meaningful interactions. Such a waste.
That is stunning! Serious props to the crews working on this thing. Beautiful rockwork that.
Insert "Looks Slow" joke here
Really though, I'm kinda in love with this ride right now. Anyone who knows me on this site knows I love me some theming, especially rockwork. This POV had me so gagged. I was a bit frightened at first because it seemed to have that GateKeeper gradualness, but it really picked up once you got to the rockwork. Excited to hear what Gavin and/or HeartlineCoaster think of it since I won't be riding it anytime soon.
I think it just seems that way since this POV isn't mounted from the left or right wings, but from the middle.
Alpengeist Syndrome strikes again. Looks too big.
Whilst I do think this looks quite good, I suspect it's the offride views on this that are going to be the real winner here.
Looks very nice, about what I expected. I love Gatekeeper, it’s one of the few times where I think big swooping elements and inversions really work so if this rides anything similar then it should be good. Looks like there’ll be some decent positive g’s throughout the ride as well.
Of course the rock work and interactions are stunning, and it’s great that they’re toward the second half of the ride. Very interested to see what else they’ll put in.

That 0-g roll looks absolutely wonderful though.
The Mack is now coming together.
I can't see the images, and Virgin is blocking the source for me.
What's with the color on those connectors? Wouldn't that normally be blue? lol. It doesn't even look to be the same color as the supports. I guess it's cool though.
Anyway, the ride looks awesome, and that twisted air hill looks sick.
I don't know what you people mean by no near misses, seems like plenty of them in there to me. It's a wing coaster, this is a center mounted POV, did you remember that? Did you see the images of the construction workers holding up the clearance envelope?
We did, and more notably commented on them hacking the theming apart to make it fit.
