This weekend, ALT went up to Knoebel's, Where, with park permission, we took pictures of construction on StratosFEAR, and the CrazySub! (the two new attractions for 2013!). Also, we took pictures of some major re-tracking going on with Phoenix and Twister.
First, here's a look at the prepping work for StratosFEAR. The ride is going to be in this area (this is right across the bridge that goes to Twister)
I think the tent is where the base will be going.
They dug for electrical wires.
They re-tracked a TON on Phoenix! This is the first turnaround.
Now, onto CrazySub construction! (also new for 2013)
These are arms/supports for the ride.
This is where the actual ride will be going.
NOW, FINALLY....Flying Turns update! We heard from the park that a test car will be arriving next month, and testing should begin shortly after... Could 2013 be the year? We'll have to wait and see, FINGERS CROSSED!
This is the transfer track, which we had photos of them working on this Summer.
Thanks! We plan on going back to Knoebel's in March to get another update on the progress!
