And also congratulations to the park for finishing the major construction of the new mega-inversion coaster. Some of the last pieces to be installed were for the first traditional lift hill, and before that was the vertical one and both inverted drops.
For some recent photos of the ride (less that one final piece of track), check out this batch from the forms at Towers Times. I love the look of those inverted first drops - it is amazing just how much twisted track was fit into a small area, with elaborate theming elements included as well.
Now the park can race to getting the ride open, and then they can reveal all the Smiler's secrets!
