Zippin Pippin: Going Up

© The Zippin Pippin Blog
The next level of construction has been reached on Bay Beach Amusement Park's Zippin Pippin with the structure of the ride now going up.  The first section to be built was for the brake run/station area, according to the Zippin Pippin Blog.

The design of the ride has the lift and first drop wrap around the station area, so it's no surprise that they would start work there first.  Once the taller sections go up it would be difficult to maneuver inside them.

Head over to the Blog linked above for tons of recent construction photos, including a drawing of the layout and some great coaster-nerd blueprint shots!
