There is a ton of super bright orange curvy Premier Rides track in Lake Compounce’s parking lot. It looks really, really nice!

Attendees of the tour got a chance to sign one of the supports. Pretty cool! I wonder if people can identify this support once Phobia is fully constructed

Phobia’s support looks really nice against some of the older buildings at Lake Compounce.

This is one of the main powerhouses for the ride. There is another smaller one on the other side.

The queue line for Phobia will be the longest one in the park. The photo booth for Phobia will be on the Ghost Hunt side of the pathway around where the dippin dot stands was before. The path is being widened to 25 feet and there will be two other food stands next to the photo booth.

The giant Phobia sign will go right where you walk up to the ride from Revolution.

The construction site is just one big mess.

Some of the footers however are not done yet.
