Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.

Yeah, I can't tell either. But I could see it in the shed. Sky Trek was closed so they could move the train on the track and all of that exit area was blocked off so I couldn't view the station and queue.

I just uploaded this weeks video...though the work they are doing is not really visible now that the structure is in place. More about the queue, Whizzer testing, etc.

Thank you for getting those shots, Rob. I hope all the trains are on park property so they can do what they need to get testing to start. Once the weather gets better with no more rain I hope to see testing soon.

Well considering on May 22nd, a picture of the store that is supposed to be the exit of this ride has NOTHING in it, and looks like a complete and utter mess + the ride doesn't even have an actual sign, this ride is way behind schedule. The station doesn't even have a roof or sides. I don't think you can test a ride without a station roof or sides of the building. It just has the steel around it.

I’ll be honest, the way the ride runs has nothing to do with it needing to have a station, entrance etc. The ride can test its system & everything else without that, it just can’t operate for the public without those things.

Correct me if I’m wrong but X-Flight started testing when nothing was complete. The first test run shows this. All the station had was a cover.

I'm pretty sure the exit path leading into Carousel Gifts will include an exit gate that opens up to the Sky Trek Tower exit area for when Carousel Gifts is not open. The shop doesn't have to be ready for opening day.

I don't see a problem with testing with no station roof ready. No one here knows where they are with the progress of electrical work etc so time will tell when we'll see our first test.

Soo I looked back at my psychotic XF construction album. The roof wasn’t done with a partial train on April 3. But by April 11, 2012 it was testing with a completed roof but as you can see the exits & que aren’t done. It had a commercial shoot May 7, 2012 to put some things into perspective. Also believe the train tracks weren’t completed either.

Goliath tested for the first time May 31st, 2014. I don't know where they were at that point in construction, though they had a station already.

Goliath first runs the structure wasn’t even fully complete. Sure it was just railings and small stuff like that but it still wasn’t complete. Look at the first pov the park posted. The railings at the top of the lift hill aren’t even finished.

Then I could see the park testing soon if the launch and electrical work is ready! We just wouldn't know because the park hasn't said anything about construction lately.

Well, hopefully we'll have longer periods of sunshine so they can get more done. I don't know the qualifications they need to meet for testing to start but I really hope it'll be soon. According to Rob's latest video, I would think the air cylinders and the control room are completed and they are ready to pour concrete onto the roofs. As for other construction, they poured more concrete for the queue. I'm hoping to see the station get completed next week. Weather is a big factor though.

Ok so It’s a personal thing. Was thinking I missed some date the park said or someone heard they’re shooting for that date.

If there's no theming at least put in sources of shade. They plants trees probably and maybe a few canopies.
