I can't tell if the structure is any taller than last weekend. Maybe they're working on the launch.

Wouldn't that be the beginnings of the hill/tower/first double inversion after the launch? The end supports have track on it that does not appear to have any track.

I believe it's the structure for the second inversion in the double inversion

Yeah, the supports being constructed by Bull are for the the double inversion after the launch. That structure is going to be massive. I’m not sure which inversion it’s for since the second inversion of the two in the first element is farther from Bull’s turnaround.

Anyone know if there's any construction tours for MF planned anytime soon? Also, I wonder if construction might be delayed in any way because not all track pieces are at Great America. Seeing that that one piece was spotted heading there. I know this ride isn't anything huge to build.

How close does this ride get to Raging Bull? And to Whizzer? Anyone have any ideas? Will be cool while on Bull to see this ride!

Some new pieces were visible on the support tower over Whizzer today. That is going to be a massive structure.

Someone here said there was track going up on the support by Whizzer and Raging Bull. I can't tell in that video if there is any.

From where I was, which was pretty far away, I did not see any. There could be at the bottom of the structure, but from my viewpoint, no track visible by Raging Bull from my vantage point.

I didn’t say anything about track, I said there were new pieces on the support structure. The best view is from the North.

I will be attending the ACE Maxx Force construction tour on March 23. Unfortunately, the event is for ACE members only. However, I promise to take lots of pictures for everyone!!! Let me know if there is anything in particular in the construction of Maxx Force you would like to focus on.

No questions about construction, but if it is open to an actual Q&A, I'd like to know if the park has plans of theming for the queue.

^My apologies. I intended to write if there are pictures you would like me to take of Maxx Force that are of interest? Are you interested in seeing the catch car up close? Pneumatic cylinders? Trains if there are any? That kind of thing. I will for sure ask about theming and rollbacks.
