    After a delay due to S&S being somewhat useless, construction seems to have started again:

    To be fair, builders are famous for disappearing half way through a project to work on another job.

    They are some fine looking trains.

    Always respect a park that builds multi inversion coasters without OTSR's.

    It's coming together pretty quick despite the balls ups, I think it will be open a lot sooner than expected. I'll be there in August so should be OK.

    Looks like there are seat belts too, for extra reassurance.

    If this is testing when I'm there in 20 days time I think I'll cry.
