On a side note- This Wednesday marks the 1 year anniversary of the Jaws Ride closing. Crazy the difference in 1 year.
Update in a bit
Site-work appears to be moving at an accelerated pace now! Thanks HtF
Kings Cross is using a construction technique more commonly found in skyscraper construction. They are floating reinforced concrete on a system called "SKYDECK" which is (ironically) a product of a British Company. After finished and cured, the skydeck system is removed and the concrete floats only supported by distant end points.
Thanks to a special member for the insight and explanation on this unique process.
Thanks for more great pics HTF! Wondering about that boxy structure to the left of the building... Why was that finished so early on, compared to the rest...
^ And why... is that huge white oil rig type pipe bolted in there... hmmmmmm. Engine service building?
As HtF said this is only usually used in large projects due to the form-work cost over a conventional system. Although it is becoming more popular every day.
I know this has been discussed a thousand times, but I haven't found the answer yet...do we know the coaster manufacturer yet? The track looks really similar to Premier. I was just holding out for Intamin because they've done EMVs before and it seems a Spidey/Mummy-type hybrid would suit them well.
I've been saying Intamin for many many moons with a host of others giving a strong premier argument. So I've just been waiting for Universal to confirm Intamin until then.
