Construction Update April 8th, 2017!
Mine Blower is looking great as it continues to grow. Looks like most of the steel and wood for the ride is on site. Steel for top track layers are ready to be installed. Around the coaster they are assembling more bents each day on both ends of the coaster. Track layers have been added over the last few weeks on several parts of the layout. Final layers are installed in a few spots ready for steel. The coaster is looking great as I get to see it grow each time I visit.

So that is as tall is the Mine Blower will get as the tallest section of bents have been added over the last few weeks. Work is getting done throughout the ride as bents have been hung on both ends of the coaster. The ride is really starting to take shape as they add walkways and track layers. Another week and the lift hill and first turn sections should be completed. Lots more track layers have also been added over the past few weeks. Overall the ride is looking real good as each day completes more of the ride. .

Looking good as Mine Blower work continues at a quick pace. Around the top of the lift they are just about done with the last pieces of bents going up today. Through out the ride there has been lots of wood stack work happening. The first sections of steel top layer are getting started in the brake run area. Lift hill chain trough is in place, some brakes have been added and gates and other mechanical stuff in the station. The ride has the inversion and two turns to be complete. Getting closer everyday!

WOW! Mine Blower is really looking amazing. We are getting closer every week as work continues at Fun Spot America. Lift hill has been installed this week as about 80 percent of the bents have been installed. Lots of new angles in the track that are addons to the original concept. The big show this week is the addition of some of the structure that will have the corkscrew inversion. Its cool to see how the track will flip and the way they designed the element.
