Darn it, they took more trees down when they tore down the marina gate. But maybe it'll be easier to get buses and RVs thru there too.

That doesn't make sense, buses and RVs don't go through the Marina gate into the park.

I did notice in the video that it seemed like they removed the old street lights rather than just bulldozing them, perhaps they will be restored and somehow incorporated into the new construction.

I wonder if Chris meant buses/RVs driving down Perimeter Rd.

Yes, of course I meant perimeter road. Thanks for the humor Pete.

A couple notes and questions about this weeks video.

The old antique lights were on the night before they were all removed. Apparently it wasn't that hard to just shut them off and yank them.

Several trees on the marina entrance path were removed, but also one big tree on the celebration plaza midway. I'm not sure exactly why, but it's hard to tell the exact ride path.

Anyone know what that mini archway near the celebration plaza midway is? It looks like it had a light on inside of it during the night.

I believe that big tree is about where the dive loop will be, following the second drop. Element #7 in the layout description.

Where is the mini archway you are referring to?

Could you be referring to the Celebration Station food stand?

I think it is just a maintenance building which is temporary. I went back and looked at the earlier videos and it is surrounded by cars and other storage units.

Does anyone else happen to be capturing the images from the webcams? I lost power overnight, so I am missing images from this morning.

I just viewed the time-lapse davidw, it is fascinating to watch all the work. I noticed quite a bit of activity on the Raptor paint job. What are they doing at the former Dodgem elevated pad location? Is that part of Valravn?

I have a custom script that I wrote to do it. I'm already working on some redundancy, but just didn't get it done in time :/

David, we all enjoy the timelapse you put together, and won't suffer for missing a couple hours compressed.
