It's a little hard to see, but you can see the lift curving up and out of the station.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Its going to be like Mystery mine at Dollywood but LESS freaky becuase it isnt as themed (roick grinders, lightnin, crows etc.) but it will still be cool!

Looks like most of the track is finnished. screamscape says so. MAYBE just MAYBE if they can begin testing within the next week it may just open the first or second week of june which means I may still get to ride it afterall!

I hope it's open within the next two months but remember...there is still A LOT of work to be done. The trains haven't arrived and there's the electronic stuff and the landscaping...not to mention weeks of testing.

Well I still got my fingers crossed. If they book they could possibly have it done.

The electronics shouldnt take more than 2 days to install if they work hard on them adn everything is right..

OH MAN!!! Seems like they're flying now! At this rate, it should be ready to open by early/mid July. I cant wait to ride this beast. HA! Im sure the lines are going to be 250+ minutes for this thing. Which, is not entirely bad. That means all the other rides will have less wait!


Cant wait to ride this sucker listening to 'Classic Rock'
