Any idea on the tilt of CP's Coaster Structure?

'Ello Coaster Fans Who are Now Trying To Figure Out How To Carve a Coaster Into Their Pumpkins,

As many of you know the main new coaster tower is now tilting inward (no not the one that you see on CP's web cam that gives a lense effect), but the actual top of the tower. The farthest tri support from Corkscrew is now leaning inward due to a slight bend in it. As seen here:

Top of Stucture Tilt?

I was sitting here trying to figure out the tilt on it. And also realize there are still two catwalks on the ground. Any ideas?

Anyone else also noticed all the funny things the Construction crew left behind for the weekend? If you want more pics check out the link below.

What's the mystery? The Freeze towers are built the same way:

And i was hoping for a non-inverting TH. Just because if this coaster is a L-TH-B, then there would still be some air on it...but not anymore.

*Note that i do not know for sure if it will be inverting or not, im just assuming.

The structures are similar but the Top Hat on this coaster is non-inverting.

The mystery has to with some Geometry I'm working on here for the facts of the stucture.If I know the bend angle then that would greatly help in a few ways. But no life or death mystery, just wondering.

RollercoasterGod, I was wondering the same thing. The Freeze tower has a traingular truss section at the top. However, the new CP tower seems to be tilting in the opposite direction, as if bending backwards. Perhaps it was done that way to clear the train as it spirals upwards/downwards.

Huh? It's the exact same thing as the freeze towers, only instead of two corners tilting it's just the one (where in this case there's no track).

Here's the real question: How long will it take for someone to think that the picture Jeff linked to is a "clue" about Dragster?

Hey that's MY Mr. Freeze :)

Hooray SFStL's coaster gets recognition - not SFoT's!!! ;)

I think that it will be non-inverting, but I am really curious about what else this thing will do. The footer lines really have me mystified about how it is going to go -- mainly because there are more than one row in some spots.
