It continue to grow. I'm beginning to think that this may be a bit of an eyesore... Other supports have also gone up.

I love how the promotional artwork from the first post from Lewis is so far from the truth, that one support on the promotional image versus the mass of metal worse than The Smiler, the building is an eyesore as it is without all the supports which are a vile color.

The only ride this support intensive I've seen for a while is The Smiler... but to be honest Smiler's look much better and fit the twisted layout well.

Fingers crossed they'll have some theming on the tower by next year :)

More twists and an airtime hill are now in place, as well as more supports at the ready, as shown in these images from CoasterFriends. Considering how low to the ground this section is, it should have a fair bit of speed.

Pretty mad how the track goes through the supports like that. Thanks for keeping the updates coming.

It's the supports that ruin the aesthetics for me, looks like a great coaster, should have a lot of speed at low points, and i in the pictures, that looks a like a gerst track kink as said above! :lol have Gerstlauer created any thrill coasters apart from rage in the last 5 years that don't have rough moments? If they were smoother, I would prefer a lot of the coasters they make than Intamin, they have great layouts, flawed by the trains and rush jobs.

Today track for the exit from the tower and the airtime hill before the final brake run (which seems to go through a tree) was placed. Head over to CoasterFriends for additional images.

Karnan's indoor segment has been added in, showing a small drop. Seems to me like the indoor area for this may be quite extensive, taking away from the simple 'turn, drop, inversion, lift hill' thing that a lot of Eurofighters and Infnities have :P

I really like the look of this coaster but intrigued by the crazy support structure and am curious as to how it will ride - hopefully smooth :)

2 of those photos in that last set stand out to me. The first makes the element look uncomfortable but thrilling. The other one that jumped out was the 3rd photo because it looks like one of the supports(towards the left of the photo)is causing a bit of a clearance issue, but I suppose that's probably just the photo. Who knows, maybe the appearance of dodgy clearance will add to the thrill.
