Ever more testing going on. With 4 days left until the first guests are due to ride Rita, it hasn't even had a single person go around the track yet!
Ug Swinger's new operator cabin is under construction. Up until this year, the operator has sat in the centre of the ride.
An empty train flies overhead during testing.
A look underneath the station, with Train 1 above.
The loading bay railings in the Corkscrew station are being repainted a bold red, matching Rita's track colour.
On the other half of the station, you can see the original red railing colour underneath the brown coating.
