We've added 15 new photos of Titan today. It is progressing very nicley. The turn around towers are almost complete and new supports are going up near the lift hill area.

Do they assembe all of the supports first and then assemble the track? Cause in all of these photos, all we see is supports and no track. When will those beautiful, bright orange pieces start rising?

You will find with most coaster construction, the first hill and main platform are always the first things done since there is more to do than just vertical construction. While the rest of the ride is completed, the chain will be tested extensively. Track is usally attached as soon as they get its main support done. Mill. Force had the whole first hill built before they began adding track

Do they complete all of the supports and then place track or do they add track to supports already put up, while others are being built?

*puke* Why those colors? Sounds too much like its borther (Mindbender). I hope they don't theme it to Batman crap like they did w/ Mindbender.

Yeah ... hopefully they won't re-theme the ride at all ... there's too much Batman in the park right now. I don't see SFOT re-naming it, Steve Calloway said he wanted to keep all the Gotham Stuff isolated to Gotham City/Goodtimes Area. But this paint job of the Shockwave is rumored to be the last one it will receive.
