It's about time! I was beginning to think that Titan would be the world's first TRACKLESS coaster!! :-)

Looking awesome! Keep up the great work LST!

I'm confused as to the position of the lift hill and turnaround towers, it doesn't look like there is enough room for the drop. Then on the other hand it could be due to the pics being taken behind the towers.

Is the tall pole with the lights at the top for the car park that Titan is being built on? Anyone know how tall it is so that we can compare the heights? They could turn on the lights and work during the night.

IMO SFOT is taking the easy way in building on the carpark and not on interesting terrain as with Goliath. It always bugs me to see coasters built on carparks. However this saves $$$!!!

There's gonna be alot of room between the lift and the turn-around towers. It's gonna be a steep climb, but it will be fun. I'll try to get a shot to show how much distance there is on Friday when we go back out there.

Hmmm, is it just me or does construction for Titan seem behind schedule. I mean Nitro at Great Adventure hasn't been announced yet, but a lot more construction has been done. Half the lift and some drops off of hills have already been constructed. You can see some pictures of it on Thrillride.

There are a few that can slow construction:
1. Weather - Texas has been getting alot of rain lately
2. Company - some companies build faster than others
3. Layout - Titan does have a tunnel, and may be longer than nitro or whatever its called.

That one picture that is distant, you can clearly see the lift hill. There have also been many witnesses to the lift hill of Nitro, and I don't know how many of you people have seen the weather in New York/New Jersey lately, but we just got hit by a huge snowstorm, and that didn't seem to affect construction.

We've been having interesting weather lately. Warm and dry, and then the temp drops to the 30's and we get rain and threat of ice and snow. Hopefully this won't damper construction. They have been working in the rain though, just on the stuff closer to the ground rather than high stuff.
