The majority of the first drop has now been completed, as well as more track added to the end of the circuit.

There's been a fair bit of track put up since my last post, including what looks like a sort of corkscrew element, which I believe is something new on a flying coaster.

Sorry to be a downer but the corkscrew's been done before, on Manta and it's respective clone that opened this year:

It's a really fun element though, so should be just as good on this!

Now I have a feeling that's a new element on a flying coaster ;) There are several more photos here and here.

Ah, I did have that in mind but must have had confused the layout slightly, although the profiling does look noticeably different...

More track in place. I like that it comes close to Jurassic Park - The Ride.

It does fit nicely, and would be cool for when your riding the jurrasic park ride and this beast goes soaring by

The two ends of the constructed portion of the track are making their way towards one another, whilst work on the station continues, with paneling appearing to have been added - it's thought that L1 will stand for Laboratory 1.

This will easily be one of B&M's most spectacular coasters. Amazing.

The station and maintenance buildings have now received further theming, and what appears to be the ride's entrance has also appeared.

So whilst I thought all the track was almost up, it turns out there was still a Pretzel Loop to go!
