Steel Vengeance

Great photos, thanks for sharing.

I can almost 100% confirm that the new entrance will be about 100 feet over to the right of the former one. The new tracks definitely cut through the entrance of the former spot and are super low to the ground there. I'm pretty sure I saw it ( the new entrance spot) last night while riding the CP/LE train before hitting Boneville.

looks like the tall crane is there. would be nice to see the webcam zoomed in on it!

just saying if your trying to promote the new ride

Maybe they are going back to "nothing to see here" mode for awhile now that daily operations are over.

Surprised no one mentioned the S&S Free Spin as another RMC 2018 project

That crane doesn't look significantly taller than the one already/previously on site, though I've admittedly not been paying that close attention.

Ah, this is much clearer:


Thats the same crane thats been on the job site. They need a huge crane like the one they had to install the lifthill on valravn. I don't expect them to have it on site until the park closes for the season.

how are you guys missing that giant green/yellow/blue crane in djcarl's pic?!? 😜


That crane might be enough to complete the job. The pieces they're lifting are all going to be much lighter than Valravn pieces. But I'm no crane operator.

Thats a telescopic I-beam crane and those don't go high enough and aren't as stable when maxxed out especially in any kind of wind. Go back and look at pictures of the crane used for valravn. I've worked in construction for over 30yrs and have used cranes on many jobs.

You're better off letting Guest Services know about your inedible lunch. Not much we can do about it here.

Guest Services was too busy apologizing for parking lot Control to Siouxsie's crazy angry friend, to assist me with my sub-par lunch.

CPRundown reported on Facebook today that everything appeared finished except the lift hill and first drop.

Tall and fast not so much upside down...
