Love how those track pieces for the drop of a B&M giga look just like Schwarzkopf box spines :P

There's been consistent progress on Fury 325 over the past few days, with half of the Barrel Turn now in place.

They certainly aren't messing about, with the majority of the S-curve now erected.

This track I would imagine is a lot more time consuming considering they have to lift a large portion of the track above 250ft. Then to lower a piece at 300ft+ must have to be done incredibly slowly. I think there was no excuse for The Smiler's Spaulding construction speed, the snow wasn't even that severe.
