If the theme is something related to the Altonville Mine Tours like Justin suggested yesterday, we might get some cool teaser footage during Scarefest!

That would also give them something to display on the screens...

TPW have got pictures.. it also shows that the queue may no longer be under the track or is and I'm just blind.. either way I mentioned it on the last page but I don't think anybody cared :D

Thanks although I can't really tell where things are on the TPW pictures which is why I was asking, I should have really made that clearer.

Yeah he doesn't take the most clear pictures does he lol.. you can see the end of the helix to the straight is going up or has gone up by now.. so I would assume the bents are almost all in place, or are in place and now need the rest of the bents putting on to complete before track is lay.

Saw that last night! It's good to see how much has been don ever since the last video! I personally can't wait until the station and maintenance buildings roof is done, especially as it could give us clues as to what the theme will be!

I would expect those TV screens to be showing something sooner rather than later. They're not a cheap addition and they'll want to make the most of them before the season ends!

Having not seen the SW8 site in person since the end of May, I've been relying on photo/video updates from various sources and I have to say I'm really surprised (and impressed) with how quickly this thing is coming together.

Looking forward to providing some updates of my own in a couple of weeks!

Looks intresting, the shape of the building itself. The speed at which construction is progressing is astronomical! Amazing work, I haven't seen the construction myself yet but when I go for scarefest I bet they'll have done so much!

When you go at Scarefest you will be mesmerised. Pictures don't do the thing any justice...

Well, they're not exactly dawdling are they! If they continue with the amazing amount of progress they're doing in a short space of time here, we should see it nearing completion during scare fest!

Towers Street always has good photos! For me, it's the roofing that makes it obvious that the ride should be in Gloomy Wood...
