Verruckt Construction (Schlitterbahn)

Time to check in on the progress of Verruckt.

So their plan is that the boats are going to magically stop on this beach here.

Unless they're going to apply some major brakes, that isn't going to work.

This is the return river the rafts will go in.

Here is where the rafts will go on a long conveyor which will take them to the top of the tower.
I really question this drop and pull out.  I would think the G-forces would be insane.

I guess we will see once testing begins.

The first drop is climbing up towards the top of the tower now.

Yes, that first drop will be one for the record books.

They've made a lot of progress on the stairs.
