Hello Fellow Readers!!!

I am here with the monthly update and pictures for Steel Curtain out in Kennywood.  So at this point the dive loop and banana roll are up and completed (see pictures below).  All the pictures are from Kennywood's Facebook page.







I love how Kennywood included the bridge in the ride so to speak.  It just adds that little bit of extra so the environment.

So as of right now opening day for Kennywood is May 4th and Steel Curtain doesn't have an official opening day just Summer 2019.

There really isn't much more to added this evening so I shall make this the end and see everyone at the next update!!

So  yes, new details have come down the line on what all is included with this newest addition to Wizarding World at Islands of Adventure. Universal has stated that "Race thought the forbidden forest at speeds up to 50mph, moving both forwards and backwards at times. Encounter some of the Wizarding Worlds rarest creatures, including: A Centaur, Cornish Pixies, Fluffy, the three-headed dog and a special new creature that has never been seen in the film series. Plus, you'll have an encounter with Devils Snare along the way".

As expected, Universal is touting this new attraction as their most highly themed, immersive coaster yet. It's also rumored that the list above isn't complete, that the ride will also include seeing a unicorn, threstrals and no one can seem to decide what the 'mystery' creature will be! OrlandoParkStop has posted some amazingly detailed aerial photos with some great shots!

Again, you can see more of these high-res images on OrlandoParkStop. 

Early ride testing video has also been spotted online, showing a few more details of the train and the coaster. We've included the video below.
