No photos have been added to the minisite recently, however a video was released yesterday showing the lift hill support structure's construction.

New photos have finally appeared on the minisite. There are some from back in December of a track delivery, but more significantly the following photos were taken today.

I understand that "Karnan" may be opening towards the end of this year, however vertical construction seems to be continuing at a worryingly slow pace considering that Thunderbird has had it's track completed and most of it's themed elements installed. The other observation I have made is, although the themed elements are not being added immediately to the ride, both the tower and track supports are extremely unpleasant to look at. The centerpiece tower looks like an eyesore and the track supports at the base of the tower appear messy and awkward. Despite this, until the ride is fully completed I can not give a definitive opinion.

I think the majority, if not all, of the track for the first drop is now in the tower. Here are a few images from the minisite which were taken on the 17th.

Did they not claim this to be a family friendly ride?!?!

That drop looks amazing, but I fear that, like The Smiler, it won't be as smooth as it seems.

I have to say this. Look its Depth Charge in the background lol. Thank you to everyone for keeping us informed with all the updates and pictures. It will be very interesting to see the rest of the track. But i must say this looks like it is going to be a very good coaster.

As shown in these images from the minisite, the brake run is now in place and the support structure for the first outside element continues to grow.
