Following tradition, the 12,500-pound, final piece of track was topped with a waving American flag as it was lifted high in the air by a giant crane, and then bolted into place by workers.

It was only this January that the park topped off the highest point of the coaster, with a crest that reaches 200 feet in the air. The park’s hypercoaster will reach speeds of 73 mph, with plenty of chances at airtime on each hill.
