Starting this huge update off over by Ultra Twister where there’s a section of the parking lot being used to house the Hakugei’s track!

It’s the nice blue color seen on Twisted Colossus and Twisted Cyclone!

Construction workers are dismantling the old White Cyclone track from the drop.

They don’t appear to be RMC employees. From what I’ve heard, from now on, all overseas RMCs will be handled by MVR.

There goes some old wooden coaster track! Brings back memories of watching them take out sections of Colossus track while converting that woodie.

A section of the structure was completely removed to be able to get the crane in the middle of the structure.

Not much White Cyclone track remains.

There’s a bunch of nets by the big turn around. Not sure if it’s a Japanese thing to do this during construction, because I don’t remember seeing this many nets during the construction of Joker, Twisted Colossus, and Twisted Timbers while watching those in person. I might be mistaken.

The second big turn around section on White Cyclone in it’s current state.

Ledgers going all the up the lift. Looks a bit steeper and a bit taller than the original. Maybe 30′-40′ taller.

IMG_7006

The lift is topped out. This will be it’s max height.

RIP

Prelift time!

IMG_7015

Airtime bump and…

IMG_7016

…and outward bank bump!

IMG_7003

Time to go up in the Ferris Wheel and get some views from above! It located right next to the construction site so it was almost perfect!

IMG_7044

Here’s a view from above the first turn around.

IMG_7047

Bottom of the first drop.

IMG_7048

The last picture of White Cyclone’s drop probably that will ever be taken!

IMG_7045

The height difference between White Cyclone and White Whale!

IMG_7050

A section of what was the second big turn around.

IMG_7049

I can’t wait to come back to Japan after this beast opens so I can get a great view of the water. Currently there’s no coaster larger than a kiddie coaster on this side of the park near the water. White Whale is about as close to the water as Steel Vengeance is to Lake Eerie.

IMG_7060

The water is literally right there! I can’t wait! This view will be everything!

IMG_7074

More of the second turn around.

IMG_7075

The old and probably what will be the new transfer track.

IMG_7086

Quick look into the station.

Some #nerdshots of some RMC parts and old track!

To finish this update, we have EVEN MORE TRACK! Behind the construction site. These pieces are probably going in soon. Within the next few days is my guess!
