Construction Update March 11th, 2009
The non inverting loop has been completed. Its an interesting and unique element for a roller coaster. Not much to go now just the main drop, a few other connectors and the track up the lift hill is yet to be installed.

Construction Update March 15th, 2009
More station work has taken place in the last few days as you can start to see the shape of the outside of the station. Track has started up the main drop as it approaches the top of the lift hill. Looks like there are a few spots around the ride that needed a little modification.
