Zinga Vertical Construction at Holiday World for 2003!

There has been a lot of progress on Zinga this week.

 Zinga Vertical Construction at Holiday World for 2003!

Last week the tower was put up and this week we have the helix put together and in place.

The bottom of the helix is going to go straight into a drop that will take you into the giant funnel where you will slide back and forth before splashing down in the exit pool.

I think the funnel is going to sit just to the right of where the crane is sitting.  The way they are going to build the funnel is to build it starting upside down (wide part to the ground) and adding sections on top of each other.  Once it's all in place a crane will hoist it into place. 

 

The funnel pieces should be arriving sometime soon and they still have some more tube sections to add.  Check back next week for another update.
