We don't usually upload our own pictures here, but ST Chick snagged a few photos this afternoon from the Mall of America to share...

Spongebob's track has shot up over the past couple of weeks. It was just an empty plot of land not too long ago. Is it just hard work on their part, not having to face the weather as much during construction, or a little of both?

Is Avatar's ride car going to be similar to KI's Avatar, or smaller? It doesn't look like they have a lot of room to play with there for the existing coaster.

Totally unrelated rides. KI's ride is a variation of the Disk-O from Zamperla. This is an Intamin LSM ride.

It'll be interesting to see how the Spongebob theming comes together, given the seemingly bizarre choice to put flames on the sides of the car.

^I don't know what you are talking about...the cars are pretty well hidden under a giant tarp ;) ;).

You can see through the tarp pretty well though.

Looks more like a graphic of a coral reef than flames.

For some reason I'm getting the message, "This picture may only be viewed from coasterbuzz.com." Clearly, I am at coasterbuzz.com. Any ideas?

Nice camera angles.

I am really looking forward to riding these two.

Here's what appears to be the layout:

Seems like a slightly modified Rage with a block brake and an additional over-banked turn. Alas, however, as the adage goes, “In life the wisest people avoid speculation.” *** Edited 1/14/2008 7:44:20 AM UTC by coasterMNguy...***
