I would guess it will take them at least 4-6 weeks to lay all the track down and secure it ready for initial testing! I don’t think we will see a coaster on the track until at least Jan. (P.S. I’m not interested in reports from an anonymous person of testing having been witnessed! It’s more than likely incorrect at this early stage, especially as coasters don’t like running in cold weather)

Wooden coaster track is so custom made, they probably have lots of spare in case a piece was bent in to the wrong shape, etc etc.

I do believe it is paint, black is an interesting colour which may suggest we may see something happen going through there, perhaps a finale, who knows?

I'm wondering if The Wickerman was put out as a red herring?
