Wicked Cyclone Construction Update #18
In Wicked Cyclone construction update #18, New England Skyway has started to come down.
Our last update was about 20 days ago. Even though it has been a long time between updates, not much work has been done. This is likely due to the holidays and the freezing temps that much of the country has been experiencing.
As you can see from these pictures, work has stopped at the end of the 200-degree stall.
It looks like a few more new bents have gone up for the second overbanked turn.
Not sure what this is for. It could possibly be another bent that just hasn’t been painted yet.
As I mentioned in the introduction of this post, New England Skyway has started to come down. My prediction of it happening in the spring was wrong. The North End station is still standing for now. We’ve heard a few rumblings of what could be going in this building. Whatever is coming will likely be announced in February. If what we’ve been hearing is true, it would be something very interesting in this industry.
This picture shows off the work on New England Skyway the most. We’re still not sure if the support towers are staying though. I think this will also be a good time to mention that the park has informed that the North End is now a hard hat area as Skyway demolition occurs. Work on Wicked Cyclone is also going to start ramping up now that the holidays are over with. For those worrying, the park is still ahead of schedule.
These last pictures can go without commentary seeing as they’re mostly the same things we’ve been taking pictures of for weeks.
All-American Thrills was on site while we were taking these pictures. So be sure to look out for their newest aerial update soon!
Before I end this update, here are some pictures Rocky Mountain Construction posted to their Facebook page. You definitely should “Like” their page on Facebook, as they occasionally post updates like what they did this past week.
