Looking along the valley towards the back of the site, this thing really is huge!

Regardless of the magnitude of minor flaws its bound to have, it's great to see another invert on the scale of Montu, Katun (<3), Pyrenees and Alpengeist, etc being built. :)

It should be interesting to experience a 'proper' large-scale dive loop on an invert. OzIris' just felt slow and gimmicky - much like the rest of it.

Well firstly it's a much bigger coaster and so that obviously means it's going to take longer to construct. Furthermore, vertical construction on this began much later than at Heide Park.

On a typical day, either several pieces of track will go up, or a number of supports. There aren't many days when there isn't any vertical construction.
