Lol I hate that video. About as bad and misleading as the clickbait articles that plague social media nowadays.

I agree, it won't be that.

But it IS what many were saying early on, including some people here.  You know who they are.  :-P
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

Congrats you know a secret.  Time for the "panties in a bind brigade" to get triggered. 
Let's not start this crap again.

I think you misunderstood what I was saying there Swoosh.  I don't know what it is any more than anyone else.  I'm agreed that I don't think it's going to be what that linked video thinks it will be.  But it's speculation.

I was just saying for those jumping on it that in the early speculation there were people proclaiming that was what it was going to be.  A couple rather forcefully saying that's what it was, and some of them were here.  And that those who claimed it and are now proclaiming otherwise know who they are.

Don't read more in there than was said. Or is the overly sensitive reaction for another reason?  :-P

Back to speculating...

I think it was the fact this is leaning toward being a spinner and if it is, the trains will be similar.

We should see vertical construction soon.  Supports and other metal components have arrived.

Got some distance shots of the columns. I'll try to get a few more later. Look like Mack columns? They all kinda look the same to me.

If you ride the train and sit on the left side you can get a great glance of the supports as you pass by the lake area. My camera couldnt take photos quick enough to get a good shpt through the trees. They look like typical round columns.

Hard to tell from the pics but how big are they? Are they as big as say... the ones used on Wildfire? That could give us clues to the scope of how big this thing is gonna be.

Looks like the fences and line that was used on Orbiter.

Didn't all of that go to Wild Adventures?

I mean, they're pretty typical supports from what I can tell. Not as big as the giant lift hill supports on WF, but they are the same sized used on Helix at Lisberg and all of Mack's other creations. Not saying that they are Mack supports necessarily, but they are the same size from what I can tell. Supports all look the same though...
