Diamondback Track Complete!

Don Helbig posted this on the Diamondback Blog

Workmen finished installing track on the new Diamondback roller coaster today at Kings Island. Track piece #129 was the final piece of track installed on the 5,282 foot-long $22 million steel coaster, being hoisted into place at approximately 2:42pm.

It took the Adena Corporation a total of 161 days to erect the ride after the first piece of track was installed in the splashdown area on August 18, 2008.
