The red pieces are part of a wide turn. Xcelerator had the same kind of long slightly bent pieces that took for ever to be identifiable. Bucky Colors.

Jeff's avatar Touching and sitting on the track is really stupid and a good way to get black listed or arrested.

ShiveringTim's avatar No, posting the evidence of you touching and sitting on the track is really stupid.

Where are the tan supports? I have yet to see them in any of the pics. But those colors look great. Nice, bright and sharp.

I know everyone is excited and such that there is track and supports, but do we need 20 people to make special trips to take virtually the same pictures of the same pieces of track/supports?

The tan supports are there...you just can't see them as well from the road side. If you ride Mean Streak and look through the structure while waiting in line you will the 5 or 6 little stubby tan supports sitting there, behing the giant yellow one.

EDIT: you can see them in this photo:

I updated my page (http://www.atlanticrail.com/images/cp ) with an index. Just use the same link and you will see thumbnails and a little info on each picture.

Those tan supports look like bar stools. Maybe they are for that rotating restaurant?

I'm guessing the tan supports are for the launch straight away?? Does anyone else agree or know what they might be for?

The tan supports are probably for just some place where the track come pretty close to the ground.

Ralph Wiggum's avatar I'm pretty sure those tan ones are to hold the launch track. I've seen identical looking pieces in Xcellerator pics.

They Look Close, But They are short. Maybe the track isn't going to be so high on this one? (If it is a rocket)

Or maybe those are just the end connections to really high supports. Like 50 feet above the ground as some people are assuming.

Nah, the bottom of those supports are meant for anchor bolts. They look just like those on Wicked Twister.
