Groundwork on Scream! is progressing at a rapid rate, with several footers being prepared in the employee lot. Meanwhile, track and supports continue to arrive.
Also, the vehicle for Superman: The Escape's left side has returned with slight modifications. The left side of the twin-tracked ride is expected to reopen shortly.

Great shots from above. I just can't understand though why they don't strip out the asphalt. It's so damn ugly, and a lot harder to remove later if you decide to actually landscape around it.
maybe people the whole "scream" factor is they're gonna make you think you're gonan slam into your own car as it's parked under the ride?? ;)
I agree.. doesn't make alot of sense not to pull the parking lot up and start with a dirt lot.

On my way to Sante Fe for my vacation from Oklahoma City, We passed a truck at a pit stop outside of Amarillo that was carrying what appeared to be supports for Scream!, im not sure if they were though.
On my way back from Sante Fe, about 50 miles west of Amarillo on I-40, I noticed a truck carrying Scream! track, it was obvious, cause it was blue and yellow, and it was B&M track. Does this mean that all the track for Scream comes from the factory in ohio or wherever the same route to Valencia?
I'd think thats correct...
Anyways, can't wait till summer 2003 =D

But putting a coaster on a naked parking lot is so uncalifornian!
Why do they want to put it on the parking lot? Don't they have more than enough room anywhere? It seems quite odd and are they doing that with future coasters?
Can't wait 'till Superman:Tower of Power!:)
I think that would be cool if they did that. And to prevent anything from happening to the cars, maybe they could put some kind of net to catch everything.
THERE'S AN IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They could park some big trucks and buses underneath the ride - that would be a first for themeing and quite good I think. Having said that, i'm not someone who really cares whether or not a coaster is put in a parking lot or not. B&Ms floorless and B&Ms in general are such spectacular works of engineering genius it is an experience to just stand and watch, irrespective of whether or not there is theming/landscaping. The same could be said about a lot of coaster types/companies actually.
Also, I like the way MM has placed their coasters; the layout of the park looks great, with most of the coasters around the perimeter, Superman smack bang in the centre, a few of them overlapping etc. There's a fantastic ariel photo of the entire park in the latest addition of First Drop magazine.
Congratulations to MM for their amazing rate of expansion. Scream will be quality.
