Nice pics. It gives a better look than what you can see on the webcam. Thanks for keeping us updated.

Knoebels has updated their webpage with some REALLY nice pics of the coaster under construction. You can really get an idea of what sort of a little monster Knoebels is creating with how highly banked that turn is... I mean, granted, on a bobsled coaster you want to make the track a little more banked than needed, but I'd still imaging that the train will be riding pretty high on that curve.

Wow...

this whole project is so fascinating. I don't suppose I've ever been so intrigued by a coaster installation. Groundbreaking in it's retro-ness... or something.

Can't wait. Glad my wife love Knoebels and looks forward to taking our kids there someday.

I tried opening the time lapse and WMP could not open it. What program should I use to open the time lapse?

Thanks in advance,

I had to download the time lapse then open it with Windows Media Player.

I downloaded them and opened them with Divx. I use DivX for pretty much everything.

I went to Knoebels again today and snapped off a few more photos. Not much progress since last week but still some progress (which is the opposite of congress) :)

You know the drill.

Nice pictures...The part of the trough you saw was actually up in the campground for quite a few weeks. I am assuming it is a test portion of the trough.

Most of the maintenance staff have been preparing for opening, but there are at least a handful of people making the "ribs" for the Turns everyday. (I guess so when you need 1200 of them.) The last set of supports they poured need some time to settle, then I would expect to see more bents go up.

Btw, the XD theatre is pretty cool. 10 seats in all and there will be 3 movies that play during different times of the day. Each movie lasts about 4 and a half minutes. Also, Frog game is now near Power Surge, while the new Dog Pounder game is located next to the Galleon on the Flying Tigers side.


Ok, thats enough. :-)

Where is the theatre located?

BTW, I don't know if it's old news and I've just been zipping past it-- but since I haven't seen anyone else mention it-- on Knoebels update page, there is now a plan view of the track layout. Looks verrrrry interesting (he says in his best Arte Johnson imitation).

Does anyone know who does the interview on the Podcast? He sounds way too polished to not be a radio DJ. And if it is just a regular guy, he should send out a demo tape.

the XD Theatre is in the Roaring Creek Saloon, not sure how that will work out tho, if the arcade is still there or it will have its own entrance or something. Also i wish you could zoom in on the layout to read the numbers...

Well yes Knoebel's has a Podcast...sorta. Not in the true Itunes/Odeo fashion but it is downloadable from their website.
