The Swarm - B&M 'Wing-Rider', Thorpe Park 2012

There is one section of track in the middle of the red structure. If your ever at the park look from on flying fish, you'll see the track

Although they aeren't track supports, I suppose they're the framework for a building (station????), still some kind of vertical construction though! :--D

Lots of track and what's the thatched building doing in the background?

From my visit today.














This picture down here is supposed to be of the top of some track.








My phone didn't take the picture well, the one below. It was supposed to let you see some footers which were being poured.




Also while on tidal wave, I could see heck loads of track and supports. I predict track erection should begin on tuesday, as they were pouring some footers in today.

^ Aha :p
We established that days ago :) Looks quite small at the moment though, lots of work still to come on the station before support erection methinks...

God, that is very close. What is worrying is that it now looks alike it doesnt have its own island to site on ?
And apparently Thats NOT the station as we though it was They say its the Maintenence bay, If it is to me it seems like Vertical construction seems to be getting further away every day !

Obviously since it isn't done yet. And I bet the fire from the plane won't look the same as in the concept art=false advertising. How dare they.
