I hope Santa's Village, Donley's Wild West (Which will give me more reason to go back besides their ejector-airtime kiddie coaster), or some other local park buys it

Is it just me or is the placing of the joker a little odd? I thought it'd be from ERC to JWR

I totally agree! I read its position on Twitter today & thought WHAT?! So the pathway will go closer to Roaring Rapids connecting to Picnic Grove & Yankee harbor.

The footprint is big to fit in that area. The transfer track and storage area would be inside of Batman. I actually like how they are putting it. It will give that area fresh look and a nice change.

I like it's placement because it'll be a physical wall separating the part of the park I actually go to from the part of the park I never really bother with. :P

Jokes aside, it will certainly dominate the area! I'm honestly getting more excited the more I think about it. Only (presumably) 231 days until Opening Day! :D

I want construction to start now!! I thought it was 50 ft or so, but it's as tall as Xflight! Wow. You're right. This'll make Mardi Gras and Yankee Harbor amazing. I've been watching POVs of the one at Great Adventure, and it looks like so much fun!!

Double post...
Will the joker's construction block off the connection of Mardi Gras to Yankee Harbor?

I know i'll end up liking the ride, I just wish Six Flags would stop the copy-paste mentality. No wonder I don't bother traveling to other parks.

^^I'm 99% sure they'll only work on the areas closed off currently, and will begin construction on the area that'll block Mardi Gras off once FF is over.

So i made a cool discovery today, so I believe that the part 3 2016 teaser was a 2017 teaser. Check this out

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uknr9bzhTKE

The first scene, theyre covering up a sign that says s&s 4d area, so that makes me believe that it was a 2017 teaser, also, he also says, the jokes on you, which is self explanatory. And lastly, the way they were moving there arms got me thinking that they were sorta drawing the s&s 4d layout, again, this is old news, but its my theory

My friend & I discussed this before that it felt like all the teasers were for multiple years. You have the loops, the haha ha's, the mountain top, AE lit up purple, the purple spray paint etc etc. it all makes sense. Now I'll be honest we thought 4D coaster, battle for metropolis, or/& RMC to AE.

Oh man, I'd love an rmc treatment on Eagle.

I'd only like it done to one side. Blue side. This way it's two coasters sharing the same structure, one classic, one modern day ride combined into one. But then the other half of me says "don't touch eagle she's perfect the way she is!"

I think I like that other half of you better. The one that says American Eagle shouldn't be touched.

There was also the sideways 10 (number of inversions on the 4D)

Call GCI to retract some parts like they did for Legend and I'm cool.
