You can see the construction workers in the background either taking it down or putting it back up. I'm guessing they are putting it back up?


They were putting some of it back. That section has now been replaced with a see through mesh. It's very easy to watch construction now.

Seemingly there was a problem with the banners turning into sails and blowing around, which in turn caused the fencing to become unstable

This video although its not a lauch it's is a virtical backwards drop.
Others were earlier speculating that an backwards virtical drop would be our worlds first element but it already be done here :D now that's just a free fall Isn't it? Not a chain snap? But now the first lift has them as well hmmmm....

And many also said that they don't believe we will have one? Please correct me if I'm wrong but John did say that there was going to be a SE ;) I know he said th13teen would be "everything you want in a Coaster in one" but that's just bending the truth ( quite a bit I may add aha :D ) they can't just say a full on lie, so if he stated there a SE there will be one aha. :D

I'm getting so excited for this it just looks immense.
Annoyingly my 'friends' are as into coaster as I am I show them the pictures above and they don't even bother looking aha. Need to find some more who I can go with and have chats like we do on here not just them describing what face there going to pull on the photo!! :-/ aha. They think I'm crazy it's all I talk about at the moment aha ;-)
I wish I could just "pop down" like you guys aha but I live about an hour a way.
I would the maramaliser was more in the middle so it looked like it was tangled in track aha.
Ohh and are the queue fences going to be the tinted glass like you see in the game??

It looks like the fins are just to stop whiplash. Which means the SE isn't outside so either they have finished that or it doesn't have one.
In just 1 day I managed: 75 rides on stealth, 8 swarms, the dodgems and a tea cups. February half term was good.

It could be ether in doors where the train Shakes from side to side tilting (personal fav out of the two)
Or 4D which IMO is an awful SE as many rides have these sort of effects so in theory SAW could be named a 4D coaster and TH13TEEN and oblivion could also as they all have ether air cannons or mist or even something we haven't considered.it could also be in between the two big boxes before the first hill (if they are put In) as this area will also be out of sight.

If people are now saying that the fins are to stop whiplash a d the first lift hill also has them! We must be coming out of there very quickly! SE maybe?

EDIT: or is it just that the chain moves fast?

( by the way does may signature work?/ look ok? Or should I delete it? Took me ages to perfect aha ;-) )

I am in love with this ride!!  Its kept us guessing at every curve/inversion and even now when its nearly finished and pretty much everything is out in front of you we still don't know what the secret element is?

I remember...... oh ages back when the Staffordshire Knot was only just going up (notice how soon it blurred into the rest of the track) - anyways (back to subject) there were rumors about the maintenance shed and the fact the ride passes underneath after the 1st barrel roll (the indoor one)?  Is it possible the S.E is in there?

Apologies if this has already been debated and discussed but i couldn't find the original pos that mentioned it.
