Project Amazon Station Goes Vertical And Theming Work Continues

Chessington World Of Adventures
Saturday 9th July 2022
Project Amazon is being built at lighting speeds at Chessington! The park is not sitting around with the main theming feature for the rollercoaster at its maximum height and now the framework for the station has been assembled and bricks can be seen around the building ready to enclose the station so theming work can begin. 

Support footers for the track to sit on can be seen running through the station with a load and unload platform on both sides of the building. With this being a wing coaster, guests will need to cross the station. Towards the front of the station, extra steel work can be seen for what we expect will be the transfer point/bridge for guests and an operations booth for the ride operator. Something that's different to the plans is the station being fully enclosed, we were slightly worried that if it was an open air station elements of theming could get ruined. 

Work on theming the huge structure on the side of the site has begun, and construction workers could be seen cladding the structure in a mesh sheet along with metal rebar for concrete to be sprayed onto. Could this be universal rocks doing this work? We could see any merlin magic-making vans sat around.

Spotted on the floor next to a footer that's still yet to be poured, it looks like we can confirm the manufacturer of the rollercoaster. Written in the corner of the plans is the company name BOLLIGER & MABILLARD.
