I still can't get over just how crazy the support structure is for this ride. Gerst certainly don't take the easy route with things do they!

Very much looking forward to seeing this thing in testing.

To follow on from Lewis' update of track over today, they've taken the entrance to the heart shaped element even higher. Personally I'd have preferred to see this element as a giant sea serpent roll.

Looks like they're only one or two pieces away from finishing the heart element

EDIT: It's now complete!

Typical Gerstlauer ;) They had a similar problem with Junker but sorted it out quickly enough.

Here's a closer look at the misaligned track, looks to be the same issue as The Smiler, it's well and truly jammed in there.

A few new sections of track coming out of the heart-shaped element's exit have been installed.

Meanwhile the track at the top of the element's entrance is still misaligned and there appears to be a train somewhere on site.

Looks like the top piece of the heart element has finally been aligned properly now, and some more track as well as some weird support work is going in, and decoration appears to be underway as well.

The shed around the brake run at the end of the ride looks complete, giving an idea as to what the rest of the area and building may look like when it's themed next year. It also looks like some parts of the building are being painted now.

Almost all of the supports are now in place, ready for the track for the overbank after the heart-shaped element and turn before the brake run.

The first image of Karnan's train featured in this article. They actually look remarkably like what was shown in the original concept art that's in the first post.

More track is going up with the overbank's highest point complete, only a few pieces of track left to place. You can see what the minisite meant by the coaster requiring around 200 supports outside the building. It's crazy!

Since the editing feature is unavailable for my previous post I'm posting this in a new post, the track connecting the overbanked turn to the rest of the outdoor course is being lined up and almost complete. Seems like the track will be finished soon!

This image posted by HAPA-Forum shows either the beginning or end of Karnan's inversion. Wherever this is on the course, it looks like it should provide a fair bit of hangtime :P

It's actually just after the exterior brake run, so will certainly come as a surprise to riders who won't be aware of it.
