Do you remember the good old days when there wasn't an internet and we had to wait until the brochures came out to know what was new for the next season. :) LOL, man that seems like forever ago. With the technology and connections today, it is impossible to keep things a secret.
Looking at those pictures, I'm about 90% sure this will be an invert- and not just because most of the pieces happen to be lying that way! Seriously, the way the curve is shaped leading in/out of the raised spine area(brake run~) is very telling.
Getting back to the "is it an inverted or flying" question. The only way you can really tell is the supports. It is definitely track that will support a coaster UNDER it, and from the reports that I have heard -- that's inverted track.
Ground work started today as well and I hope to have pics of that from my trip tomorrow up by this weekend sometime.
Joe - CO would say something to the effect that he had an inverted coaster (Steel Venom) first. I bet they get one soon as VF really does need a quality coaster in their line up.
