Some Voodoo Thoughts

Looking at the Voodoo Webcam, I think you can now make out the start of the footings for the ride's station. You can see the image I captured and then I added my own little drawing of the station.

If this is correct, then the ride will launch toward Laser, and that will be the end with the spiral tower. The holding brake end would be next to Monster Grille. You can see there are five support footers on either side for the station. The original station for the ride used five column footers as well, so maybe they are using Geauga Lake's station for the ride.

BUT, I also noticed that Steel Venom at Valleyfair! also has five supports on their (what I think is) ugly and cramped looking station. So who knows.

Lastly, there are supports for the station/launch track that have been moved next to the construction site, so vertical construction must be very close.
