Glorious! :o :o
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my park get a RMC Trex, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will double post on this forum.

I know right. I can't wait to get to the park this weekend and get some close up shots myself from the Viper fast pass lane.

Looking at that dive loop section, I’m thinking we may get a bit of floater air when you’re stalled sideways before dropping into the brakes.
I gon' cut you...

I think the airtime will be sustained ejector. Think about the snappiness of the inversion leading to the element.

My first visit of the year will be tomorrow (Wednesday). The park closes at 5:00PM, so there'll be a lot to see in a short time. Let me know if you all want any specific pictures of Maxx (that won't put me in jail).

How about a few photos from Sky Trek Tower of the entire ride??

Wow, they aren't wasting any time with this ride. Glad to see more is getting done. Now, hopefully trains arrive soon so they begin to test.

Thanks for going out and getting pictures to share, Rob. I appreciate it :)

Sky Trek was down today, so I couldn't get any aerial shots. However, I did talk to one of the guys painting the entrance. He confirmed that the upfront theme colors are grey with red trim. They were painting the red as I was taking pictures:

Image

You can see the red trim at the top one of the trellises in this picture:

Image

I took this one so you could get an idea of the size of the station relative to the size of the construction workers (they're wearing orange shirts inside the station). The station is bigger than I thought:

Image

It looks like they may be running the concrete for the exit ramp. Looks like it'll hug the Hurricane Harbor fence:

Image

I shot this panoramic picture of the entire construction area nearest the shed, but this site shrunk it down due to its width:

Image

In the panoramic, they were working on the back side of Carousel Plaza Gifts. Not the building itself, but cleaning things up. Looks like they may be starting grading in the near future.

Here's a picture of just the back side of Carousel Plaza Gifts:

Thanks to everyone for all of the great photos of Maxx Force today. I am very happy to see that the park is making some real progress on the ride, its station, and the surrounding area of the ride. It seemed like they were moving so slow for the longest time so it is awesome to see them making progress at a quicker rate now.

5/17/19 - Bridge for the train is in place (minus railings):
Image
Looks very wide so I am thinking this will either be maintenance road as well or some other kind of way for the park employees to access the other side of the ride.
You can see the spools of cable for ht mechanical/electrical as well, so they are working on that too.
Seeing that how close this is to the train and HH entrance, they will still have to fence this ride in as well. I hope they use the fencing like X-Flight as it just looks better.

I have a construction update video from this past week posted to Youtube now.
