I hope they have a "seat 4" equivalent... :) I fit in there, with some help. LOL I'm soooooo looking forward to this, and the boys would be very sad if Dad couldn't come. :)

It won't all be pathway. The question was brought up when Marcus Leshock did a live video from the park a couple weeks back and when he asked they said part of it will be the queue.

S&S Free Spins are about as ugly as it gets, coaster-wise.

I do think the Intamin "zacspins" look better but even these free spins do look odd & the GP will find them odd/intimidating.

As I don't visit the park until Memorial Day usually, I was excited to pull up to SFGAm passholder preview day and see the Joker for the first time. However, I went on a college visit in Milwaukee today, and I couldn't resist not looking at the park. I gotta say, it's bigger than I imagined and I can't wait to ride. I'm a sucker for 4D's, I even thoroughly enjoyed Green Lantern. Hope I like Joker just as much if not more. I liked what I saw today though.

That's what I said when I saw it last month, it's a lot larger than it looks in photos. We pulled up to the main entrance, just pulled over by the sign & it sticks up right behind The Dark Knight. So I can't imagine yet what it will look like up close.

It looks like SF has some key work to get done in that area before April 14, which is the bonus weekend opening day.

I could see the park leaving the path/area around the Joker closed during Sneak Preview Weekend and making people walk all the way around the park just to get to Vertical Velocity and Batman.

EDIT: Looks like the footage is quite old, but it was released yesterday. Still has some pretty cool perspectives

Per Visit Lake County twitter page. Says The Joker will open April 29.

That Joker is a prankster! @SFGreat_America sneak preview weekend is Apr 15-16 and #TheJoker opens along with the rest of the park Apr 29!

Have to see if SFGAm changed the opening date or mid-information by VisitLakeCounty.

That is impressive considering The Joker at SFOT opens May 20th.

Yeah It's not true. Joker is not opening April 29th. Interesting that SFOT is opening theirs the week before Memorial Day weekend.
