Here's my update, no, no track yet.

Image
The concrete boxes have been moved and there is new work going on.

Image
This shot brought to you by Carolina Skytower.

Image
Something new...

Image
The boxes are over on the right now.

Image
Hello Digger Dan.

Image
Rebar is going in.

Image
I never noticed these markers in the middle of those trees over near the picnic tables.

Image
To give you a better idea.

Image
Dig baby dig.

Image
Now for snooping in the parking lot.

Image
My drill is bigger than your drill.

Image
Guys are prepping the rebar.

Image
More rebar.

Image
And the mysterious red box just turns out to be a supply box, no track inside :(.

Image
Nothing else is happening down here.

Image
A piece of rebar heads into the park.

Image
More pink flowers I never noticed.

And that's about it for now...

Oh and I meant to say this before, but for those that think this is taking a long time consider that every time I'm at the park, something new has happened or is happening.

Today they are putting rebar in the ground, they weren't doing that last week.

So be patient people, these guys and gals know what they are doing.

Rebar is a steel rod with lumps on it used to re-enforce concrete. It does not contain the concrete but is usually in the center of a support column or foundation. It gives the concrete shear strength. Forms will be created around the rebar and concrete poured.

They lay rebar as well for strength, and pour the concrete into the hole over that. If you notice on the KD fansite, the long wire cylinder looking things are for that as well. Same thing is used when building bridges, if you run across one on your travels.
When the footer process begins, you will see a load of rebar come in first. Go check out the Cobra page and you will see what I mean. http://carolinacobra.carowinds.com/public/gallery/index.cfm?gallery_directory=construction&startRow=31&maxRow=15
The boxes we see now are for drainage, and the pipes are attached to the boxes to lead the water where they want it to go. Whether these are for the splash down, we'll see. My hunch says yes.

Reading is fundamental.
