Makes sense to keep the sound level down

Has anyone else looked at the construction so far, and noticed that there appears to be a lot of woodwork above where the track bed is?almost as if they're planning to add a roof over the track?


They are. The plans show that there will be sound tunnels along the first drop.

Regarding the discussion on the lift system, upon further investigation I've noticed Gold Striker has an identical platform at the top of its lift, which IS for the chain return. TheCodeMaster (who lives in California not far from CGA) also confirmed that Striker has an identical concrete structure, once again, for the lift motor.

I know the planning application is saying 'LSM lift', but I'm merely speculating based on the evidence put before me IRL, and comparing to other GCIs.

^I completely agree with you. I think people are misunderstand the silent magnetic lift hill proposal. I believe it will be like the smiler, in that it is chain driven but will have silent, magnetic anti-rollbacks.
