Anyone else noticed the plugs are bieng removed from the footer holes ? You can see the BLUE plugs lying next to each hole by the foot of the vertical hill .. Also, there is a stack of them next to the red cherrypicker under the Cobra

Looks like we may see allot of supports going up on next update ?

Construction is still very far behind but at least picking up the pace alot more, although I hope they don't open the ride with certain elements not working yet like they did with nemesis sub terra as that will be a huge let down, has it actually been confirmed there will be 15 inversions or is it still a speculation?

If we should believe the plans, then yes. ;) Great to see all this work. I'm very exited to ride this crazy coaster. :D

looks like that digger up the top by the toilets (at the end of the double barrel roll) has started to dig its way down into the pit for the vertical lift hill. Oh honey this is getting hot!

Also shop floor looks like it isn't glass after all. Also one of those weird pieces of track are in that pit area next to the brake run? It is one of those right?

Any ideas on the random line of concrete that has appeared next to where the maintenance/secret section is?

SW now stands for Slow Working lol

Anyway there 11 months now since they started to take the black hole tent down and another 2 months to go. The transformers ride at Universal Studios is nearly finished and that's only taken 8 to 9 months to build from start to grand opening.
I just hope this coaster is gonna be as good as they promise it to be as it's risky saying it's gonna be the best ride in the world.

They'll more than likely add the sand for bricklaying once the rides supports and theming is all in, but what baffles me is... How Are they going to cover the pits concrete, (including walls) and the other vertical concrete walls... In My opinion I think fake rock should be added onto the walls to hide the concrete, for all the walls... And for the pit, white and grey gravel. That'll look nice, and if the pathway is to be made for plaza under knot, a nice inward bump covered over with bricks and gravel to the sides would be very nice. But my best bet... It's gonna stay as it is... shame if it does :\

I hope they don't. The game looks really good with the yellow lines on it.


Oblivion is aaaallllllll concrete too.... Anyone bothered by that?

Could this be something from The Sun rather than Merlin Marketing?

Loose stones that chavs will throw at riders ?? Not the kind of interactive themeing AT were planning lol

I agree that they will pave over, possibly plant some sections etc Remmber at the bottom of every inversion, there will need to be fencing to keep the GP out.

As for covering with fake rock... Is oblvions concrete walls covered ??

Don't want to be a spell breaker here but they did a lot in 4 days. Double barrel roll is done concrete floor has a lot more floor to it and they have worked in the half loop section to of the sea serpent roll. Also work on the vertical lift trench and shop floor (I presume) comes along nicely. ;) Two months looks like more then enough time. ;)
