To kick off our 10th update I bring you this beauty of a turn around element which completes the circuit and is the final piece to be installed

I had a chance to visit 3 times in the past week and saw them starting work on the turn-around element with these supports and the track, now in place, sitting nearby on the ground:

Looking around the rest of the ride not much has changed, but one cool aspect coming into form is the train door-way to the station.

It looks to have some jagged edges like the remains of a ship wreck much like this concept art: (I zoomed in to the station area)

A look from above shows us whats going behind the walls we highlighted last week and it appears we have another shark or partial shark coming in the concrete:

Another walled area is most likely where a new themed sign for Sharks Underwater Grill will be built:

To conclude today’s update, we see that in the past few weeks all the buildings in the area of Mako are receiving a fresh coat of blue paint:

Even with all the track in place there is still lots of work to be done to prepare Mako for its grand opening and we will continue our coverage up to and past the opening. Be sure to check out all the previous updates that got us to this point: Mako Construction Updates
