Here's a picture of that track piece going in that I found on Instagram, so it isn't my picture. Actually, I don't know if they work on Sundays. Image

I am thinking they want park management there for the installation of the final piece of track for social media posts and to photograph it.

technically not the last pc there is still one piece that should be by the station but they are using that area as a roadway to get to the other side of the coaster

I really can't believe that the park still doesn't have the trains or if they do, I can't believe they haven't shown them off yet.

I was wondering why that track piece was missing. Now just to be clear that’s the track piece between the end of the dive loop and station that you can see in Robs videos that’s still needs to be installed?

Switch tracks usually have a reputation for being last.....

But if you look at most of the photos you can see tire tracks from trucks going in and out through that area so that is the likely the reason it has not been installed yet.

Does anyone know what the building next to the launch is for? I think someone already answered this but I can't remember. In Robs video, there are big windows on it. I still hope that will be a viewing area but I don't know how guests would be able to access it.
1.) Steel Vengeance 2.) Maverick 3.) Goliath (SFGAM) 4.) Top Thrill Dragster 5.) Mystic Timbers
Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.

Looks like it’s going to be a concrete structure and they haven’t put the forms on the outside yet. Probably a maintenance structure for the air compressor system and the holes on the side could be for ventilation or air intakes.


I'm pretty sure this is what it'll be.

Probably, but those windows are frequent and huge so who knows. We'll just have to wait and see.

Those are intakes for the compressors that are in the building that power the launch.
