Europa Park's Silver Star has reached its construction peak. Next up will likely be the unique support structure before the first drop.

Show me the photos!

It's a tradition for steel erectors to put a small pine tree on the highest piece of steel when it goes up. I don't know what the meaning is behind that, but I know it's done here in the states as well.

I remeber watching a video on the construction of the Cathedral in Washington D.C, and they put the tree on top of that as well. Silverstar looks great. It's good to see another B&M hyper being born.

It's supposed to make the structure as sturdy as the tree. yeah, it is kind of strange. This coaster looks awsome though!

There was one on X to, its on twisted rails somewhere, but not at the top.
Just like perfection, floorless...needs no correction, no other, floorless... absolutely floorless

This is a Dutch Builders tradition ...
When the highest point of a structure is reached, a little tree is "planted" on top, to let everyone know.

thought you'd like to know!

With X, the tree was planted on the last section of track installed. They should have planted a tree on every section of track for luck! ;)
