I know they were out there somewhere but I can't seem to find them. Does anyone have pics of the tunnel construction before the parking lot was put over it?
Thanks for your help (doing a little research...).

Looking at some of those shots makes me think there might be an S curve in the tunnel. It did not look like it when I was there, but that turn does not look like it is pointed at the second hill of Hades at all. In person it sure looked like it did, but it was covered over. *** Edited 3/27/2005 9:13:23 PM UTC by RavenTTD***

That's exactly what I was thinking, RavenTTD! It's crazy to think about doing a type of S curve underground at 65mph--but yes, by looking at those photos I'm tempted to think that it's possible!! I don't want to overhype the ride too much (since that's much harder to overcome than underhype), but I'm eagerly awaiting the ACE Coaster Con this summer just to ride this sucker!
NEIL, who can't wait to be 20ft underground....

After looking at those pics for a long time side by side, I think there will be two turns in the tunnel. The first will be a slight turn to the right (about 20 or 30 degrees) and then a large turn to the left. That is just my best guess based on those pics.
