More photos from today. They put up more track and supports this past week. They're also currently building the station. They are definitely using the station from Geauga Lake - they've painted it and half of it is already up.
Hopefully next week the tower will start to go up!
The holding brake tower is now pretty much done. Today it looked like they were putting on the individual holding brakes. The ride is pretty impressive looking now that it's at it's full height on one side. Here are some pics from today:
^Thanks for your answer. I have a close-up picture of the back spike of V2 at SFGAM from 06', and it looks like the supports always existed. But, in another picture of the front spike, it's easier to tell that something has been added since the new supports are slightly darker.
You know,in watching footage of voodoo's construction something is somewhat puzzling to me.Since the ride has such a simple layout when compared to most coasters why not have two cranes & crews working at each end to assemble the vertical spikes instead of having to complete the rear spike first before starting on the front?
^It would cost them a lot more money to have two cranes plus extra crew (who are most likely union), so economically, it makes absolutely no sense. Since they're in no danger of not having it finished in time, that's a significant cost savings to Cedar Fair and/or Dorney Park.
So where exactly is this located in DP? Is it like en route to Laser? Also, I remember on the podcast when this was first announced, Jeff mentioned something about this being located by the bridge (which was by a parking entrance), is that same entrance going to exist this year? Thanks for anyone's answers!

Good call on checking the webcam, I'll have to do that soon! Thanks.
Seth said:i am really surprised how fast its going up. i wonder what kind of landscaping/theme they have in mind?
You mean besides the concrete and trashcans?
i mean any type of landscaping ... does not matter could be concrete, trashcans, any like skulls or stuff ... just overall theme/landscaping look for the ride... we all-ready know the theme for the ride.. VOODOO (skulls) now its just whats the surroundings of the ride going to look like?
