Today it appears they have moved over to where track and supports will get installed for the immelmann. It looks like they have installed railings on the lift hill. Several sections of track are getting read  for installation. Seems that Busch has had a change in construction companies doing the build. One section of track has been removed from the top of the lift as it seems they got a head of themselves. Work is moving along a fast pace with the new company.
