RCDB has full sized pics. I've never understood why some parks decide to post these tiny things.
But how will they know if the track really is rusty or in bad condition? ;)
As For a little input on the coaster if you look at the big drop, it now has a really tall frame around it, it looks to me that the drop ether will go out the side of the building or drop into another lower building that will go into really cool inverson.
There is like a 50-100 foot terain difference between those 2 sectons across the creek.
Though the new ride will help as well as it is going between FITH and Lost River, with an entrance in Tom Sawyer's Landing or so it seems.
From the footers and supports that are there now, it looks like you go up the first lift, pause at the top before a 95-degree drop, then you twist slightly to the left in the drop, and then it looks like it will go right into the roll-over element. After that point, it's difficult to tell what happens since the supports are unfinished. However, the ending of this 'section' will include a trim brake before a very tight 360-degree banked turn before the second lift - that part is there. Also, there are footers next to the Lumberjack Lifts. It looks much more impressive in person.
The steel rafters for the structure are up, so this may be the last we see of the track inside the structure.
