However something that seems almost certain is that we’ll either see netting or additional theming pieces along the superstructure for “VelociCoaster“. The supports in the second half (mainly) have additional mounts attached to them.
This is not (yet) the case for all supports, however all the supports near the queue for the ride do seem to have these. Which makes us think its for netting so that loose articles do not hit bystanders queueing for this ride.
There is not much midway space, or space for a queue, on the front side of the attraction (midway side). However, there is a giant area on the waterfront that seems to be where the majority of the queue will be found for this coaster. It’s sure to have amazing views of the new ride.
Before we wrap up this construction update, we want to take a closer look at the netting mounts. One of the elements in the first half of the ride also has these mounts to prevent items from hitting riders of Pteranodon Flyers or people in Camp Jurassic.
On the 2nd half of the layout the same types of attachments are found. In addition of just shielding off people in the queue, it will also protect pedestrians crossing the bridge to/from the area from getting hit by loose articles.
With all this new development, I am even more excited to see the project move over to infrastructural changes around the coaster such as the queue. As well as testing. At this pace, maybe it will be ready to go by Spring Break 2021.
