There are 103 pieces of track in the ride's 3,415-foot-long course, and an individual piece of track can weigh up to 17,000 pounds. The heaviest piece of structure weighs in at 32,000 pounds. 51 supports hold up the track, and 69 concrete footers anchor the ride to the ground. You can see how some of the blue supports in this picture split into two columns which explains why there are more footers than supports. The coaster's structure all together weighs 3 million pounds.
