I don't know why anyone's surprised...didn't I tell you so? This is about par for the course. VF broke ground Labor Day weekend and had the tower topped off Veteran's Day weekend (Mid-November).

Of course, there's still electrical and controls and blah blah blah, but you get the idea.

I like how they're making the top more decorative like Riddler's Revenge.

I haven't seen a picture of Stan on top, but I hear he did it wearing a tux and then climbed down the side.

Stan is a genious, but like all great ride designers, he is a nut too :)

I think he is a little crazier than others. But those drop rides are pretty cool. Does tower of power have all three sides running or is one just for support? (i.e. knotts)

All three sides run
