No, sorry to disappoint. As said by Boz on the last page:

Would of been pretty pointless seeing as we had one yesterday, can't see there being much more done between then and now. If we are going to have another update this week i would rather it be at the end of the week, sunday, more chance of there actually being any difference between last night's and the next one. Obviously it's all down to when MI7 can get up into the air, and am greatful for all the updates you guys put up, whenever they may be.

Powers that be ; is there any chance of an aerial 'video' update?

I'm sure it would be a success.

There already is one, but its more of the park in general not just the smiler :moj

The fact the track that will be under the maintenance shed is straight with support beams under it I think we won't be seeing a washing machine element but what surprised me is how close the straight bit is it the top of the first pre drop before the inverted one, its as if the decided to swap the first and second lift hills over, if not they are gonna be very steep lift hills  :shock:

Nice photos, although there isn't a big difference, the most un-noticeable work that happens, the quicker the noticeable work can happen! :)

Also, nice to see enterprise back, shame it isn't noticably different though, looks a bit shinier.

I don't see why people are still speculating a launch, surely the game confirmed there were 2 lift hills, not launches?

Alton's market research showed people wanted a shorter ride though. and i think its only to please the riders more and get more % on the game (the boost)

Those stairs in the station looks brilliant. I think it really will look Awsome with people lining up the stairwell waiting to be Marmalised!!!

The more it comes together, the more impressed I am with the theme.

I have a question, the marmaliser will be like in the game, or as in advertising.?
If an inline twist, tower times team  would not hide ¡¡¡

In the game it has a secret elements section where you have to go the park to unlock and this many include a launch as there is 7 "Secret World First's" in the game to unlock.  :D

I know this is related to the game but I think it's applicable to construction as well... 7 extras....
1. (2dive loops)
2.Launch 1
3.Launch 2
4.Secret element
5.LapBars
6.Fully upgrade marmaliser
7.corcscrew after cobra.....

Just my thoughts :)

I fail to see how that's relevant, or how you've come to the conclusion that the ride will have launches!?!

1-corkscrew after the cobra roll
Secret 2-element
3-Dive loopsx2
4-like advertising Inoculator
5-trains similar to advertising
6 -
7 -

Because it's a game and it's a standard Eurofighter feature to have a straight track launch these days.  I have no idea why you would use a chain lift at such a boring angle.

Yeah I don't really believe the Launch is going to happen. The seven will be:
1. Giggler lv. 3
2. Tickler lv. 3
3. Inoculator lv. 3
4. Hypnotizer lv. 3
5. Flasher lv. 3
6. Double dive loop.
7. In-line twist after Cobra roll.
How do I guess that? Easy, The sneak peak showed more flashers and syringes on the marmelizer, and the inversions are just missing.  :roll: Just common thinking here. ;)
