ATHOL, Idaho. — For the first time in 10 years, Silverwood is adding a new roller coaster, and construction has begun.

The theme park shared photos of pieces of the brand new track on Twitter Friday morning.

The Stunt Pilot will climb over 105 feet in the air and will take riders down a near-vertical dive with hairpin turns, aerobatic maneuvers and three inversions as it speeds through heart-stopping obstacles.

The new coaster will be ready for riders this coming summer.
