The wall underneath the "Race Control" booth looks different now, as Tussaud's Studios are now beginning to install more theming.

A nice photo of Rita and Corkscrew together.

Ug Swinger now has the chains for the seats attached.

Corkscrew is being tested using the same dummies that were used during Air's testing.

Corkscrew's on-ride photo booth, which has hardly changed since Ug Land closed, save for the backdrop.

Seats for Ug Swinger sit on the platform, waiting to be attached to the many chains.

Back Stage Technologies are on site, presumably to install the smoke effect that happens when a train launches.
