WORLDS OF FUN'S PATRIOT | CONSTRUCTION REPORT 02.13.06
Lots of progress has been made on the station
They now have the roof completely done (it is under the snow).
Also, all of the wood paneling on the station itself has been
put into place. They still have the elevator shaft to complete.
The security fence work is progresing pretty rapidly.
It continues on down past Grand Prix Raceway.
They are working on fences to keep people out of the low lying areas.
The exit stairs are now in place. Also a retaining
wall has been added to keep the hill in place.
The gift shop is sporting an "interesting" color.
Several pallets of sod have arrived.
The most interesting thing that is going on right now
is that they have the "clearance board" out checking how
much digging they will need to do in certain areas on the
ride. This board attaches to the tracks in "questionable
areas" to help the builders decide if anything, has to be done.
