I don't know if I've already said this, but I think it's hilarious how the track has to shift ever so slightly to the right to enter the transfer track from the main brakes.

It seems as if they will be testing soon!
From KD's website
Happy February! It’s hard to believe that in a little over a month the front gates will open for our 2018 season and the midways will be filled with our awesome guests. As you know, the talented Rocky Mountain Construction team and our own great maintenance teams have been hard at work getting Twisted Timbers ready for riders. They are working on mechanical and electrical elements of the ride now, and soon we will begin running trains for testing. IT’S ALL HAPPENING!

Giving a bump, Twisted Timbers has not officially tested yet as they're waiting to finish pouring for the new queue. Due to the layout of the ride it is difficult to get into the centerfield with a large vehicle, especially something like a cement truck.

Also be scared for the larger folk. I'm told the 2nd gen RMC trains might have even tighter tolerances than the 1st gens.

Quick question, larger in terms of height or... chub? I'm 6'1" but not fat so I'm hoping for the future that it's a chub thing and not as much a height issue...

6'3" here, I mist say i've never seen a coaster for grown ups with a height ceiling under 6'5", and I really hope I never do.

This does look to be a beautiful rollercoaster. I can't wait to ride it.

Chubs. If you have a gut or thick thighs they might give you trouble.
