Thanks, Rob! Looks like they're maybe halfway done with those support towers. I love the uniqueness of the structure Maxx Force has. I hope they finish off that Double Inversion by the end of March!

Stopped by the Park today. Nothing new to report as far as I could tell.

The view driving in just got 10x more intimidating! XD but really, this thing is going to be so tall and towering over Hometown Square and Carousel Plaza.

Left my girlfriend’s place in Waukegan this morning. Took a detour and drove by the Park on Washington. Maxx Force’s 175’ double inversion looks colossal from that vantage point. No pics, sorry.

Heading north on 21, you can see how big it will be! Even though its in the front of the park, you can clearly see it from the opposite side going over the I94 bridge. Im so pumped for this!

I guess I won’t be attending Maxx Force’s construction tour after all. I received an email last night saying the that there was an overwhelming number of members registered for the tour. My name was not picked. Apparently the only fair way to accommodate *so many* interested parties was to abandon the first come first served structure in favor of a lottery.
My deepest apologies.

Oh no :( Don't be sorry. That sucks. Well I'm sure we'll see a lot of videos about the tour, but I'm sorry you didn't get picked.

Does anyone know has any more track been added to the double inversion structure? What I'm hoping to hear from the tour on Saturday is any news about theming and maybe a train reveal. I'd be thrilled to see the trains!

Edit: ^ When you can, please take pictures!

I didn’t see any new track, but the support structure for the double inversion (Whizzer side) was nearly topped out this morning. They still have to put up the rest of the supports for the double inversion on the Raging Bull side. Raging Bull’s turnaround looks small now.

^ Yeah, Raging Bull's turn-a-round is apparently 155 feet tall. So Maxx Force is 20 feet taller. Just think, this ride will be the 3rd tallest coaster at the park behind V2 and RB!
