Here are my photos from the ACE Coaster Christmas event at SDC yesterday. For SDC/Time Traveler it was a mini recap of the media announcement followed by another construction site tour.

Well considering that Mack and SDC sent out a media alert to be at the MACK booth at IAAPA in two days Iím pretty sure we know whatís going on and where it is happening

Speaking of, I just saw this on the MACK Rides FB Page. Looks like we likely got one of the Time Traveler cars in transit here.

To be clear, I'm pretty sure that photo of the trailer is from Orlando, where the IAAPA trade show is currently underway. Mack is unveiling "something" tomorrow with SDC also livestreaming, so I think we all can guess that a single car is under that tarp. Every manufacturer shows up to IAAPA with a car from their biggest new ride of the year. Time Traveler is at least the biggest ride for Mack in the U.S., and they are sure to be using it to make inroads with the other parks.

The Coaster Christmas event this weekend was a blast by the way. I didn't get to go up close this time since they had limited spots, but the views from the load house were breathtaking. It looks really sharp and I'm ready to be done talking about it and actually ride.

The queue line doesn't have a beginning yet. Not sure how it connects to the park yet since that area is a mess currently and the exit building/giftshop is kind of blocking it. It looks like the entrances to TNT and TT are going to be sandwhiched next to each other. I hope they both get grand entrance archways. They are going to have to open that whole area up and take out some trees though. You already can hardly squeeze through to get to TNT.

Thanks for the continued updates!!!  Appreciate everyone sharing.  TT really is a pretty amazing engineering feat.  Can't wait for the station to get theme'd out and to see the cars.

Coaster Studios posted a clip from the tour on YouTube.  They also just posted a couple of amazing interview/tour clips from the RMC shop in Idaho that is a must watch for coaster nerds.

I can't wait to ride Time Traveler! It is beautiful, and the colors and swooping elements work well in the area. It's astounding how close the final turn is to Thunderation. It's neat being able to look straight up on TNT and see a giant curve right above you.

Seeing it in the physical and not as a CGI rendering I am much more optimistic on the theming and stylization of this ride. I just hope the rest of the station building is done on this level of detail. I am impressed nonetheless. :)
