Even then it wasn't visible from inside either. This window lines up roughly where the serving counter and cooler for desserts are.

Found a really old image from in front. Turns out its a display case, not a window. It is indeed covered by the ad seen in the street view image.

These last two updates have literally been the same. Just this time we got a longer video. It looks like Angelos is well under its new facelift as well.

Not necessarily.

Here's what Hank Salemi said about the Iron Wolf rumor in July 2011....

So excited for opening!! I wonder how the queue line is going to go around it because it looks very close to the path and if they add more queue in front of the path the area will be squished together.

From a business aspect it makes sense not to actually "reveal" future plans without an official announcement but still sucks cause it's really false hope. I love V2 at our park... anyways, wow What a weird lookin coaster in our park! I remember looking at V2 & Vu when they were here for the first time like WTF is that?! & now I feel I'm gonna have that same feeling haha

Exactly. This month (if construction goes as anticipated) they will top the coaster off and add chainlift. Maybe add trains. Then in March they can add the trains if they don't do it in February. Then, begin working on the queue line + working in Angelo's. Then freshen up the scenery. And adding the two Joker signs on each side. That's what I wish could happen.

They could, but it's not going to happen. The park is going for 2 attendance boosts, y'know

If I'm correct, the last time they had a coaster ready for opening day was Superman: Ultimate Flight in 2003

You can see some of the queue setup in some of the renderings (all of them are at http://www.coaster101.com/2016/09/01/jo ... rica-2017/ I think), it's hard to tell for sure but I think they're going to use the Batman overflow queue and add some additional queue on whatever part of the East River Crawler spot is left open.

If it's anything like the other 15, right behind the lift the control booth/building should go.

The park said in an interview in the past few days, it will open memorial day weekend, even though theres no reason it can't be operational opening day.

Which is frickin stupid no matter how you truly look at it- attendance spike or not. If you can operate your new attraction for guests who are paying money to enter the park, then run it for them!

Which in turn gives them a reason to come back to the park and spend more money.

I'm hoping the park decides to soft open the ride rather than send the message to their customer base that they don't care about you unless you visit after memorial day.

& you don't find anything wrong with that? It just sucks that it's more about money than guest satisfaction. The park is gonna make money. But we all know there are people who will show up to ride that coaster & for almost a solid month, those people won't be riding it cause it won't be open when it COULD be.

Those people pay admission, but the park isn't operating the coaster.

I know, it's bad for the guests, but it makes the park more money. And they'll do anything to make more money.

We can repeat that all we want but do you not see anything wrong with that? I do understand the money but I still think it's not really right. But then again, we could have no park to visit at all...
