Paramount's Kings Island Construction Zone has just added ten new photos to its photo gallery. The photos show Tomb Raider: The Ride getting outside walls put up on the ride's main building.

Wow, what a nice Hollow building...just the right size for a highly themed European flat ride!

Seemed like I was just there in 90 degree/90% humidity. Strange to see snow/frost??? on the ground?

Actually there wasn't any snow/frost.  It was a warm, clear, sunny, afternoon at PKI when I took these pictures Saturday.   You are probably seeing the sun's reflections on the pictures.  It (thesun) was right above me.

Nice. I know about how tall it is but how tall is this building right now compared to FoF? I haven't been able to go to PKI recently. I can't wait till this opens....I really can't.

Wait, I never new they demolished the log flume to put in this ride!  What type of ride will this be anyway?

I'm not quite sure. I think it is supposed to be a dark ride simulator with a lot of theming. I can't wait for it to open either!

The link below is a pic from the previous update at this site.  Considering the concept art and rumors floating around such as "Inferno," I felt this would be a flat ride in a box from day one.   Additional evidence has only made me more confident.  Rideman has already debunked the rumor that TR:TR will cost $40+ million , and this concrete foundation sure looks like something that would support a Top Spin. 

I'll be the first to admit I was wrong if its something other than a flat ride in a box, specifically a Top Spin, but right now I'd put money on it.
