Here's the picture I promised. It doesn't look like ride supports so don't get too excited.


Someone needs to enhance and zoom!
I took this with my cell phone, my bad!

If this helps at all:

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

I've got a strong hunch those are parts for a Sky Screamer that could go in Thrill Shot's place.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I know it was a nursery for all the plants, not sure if it still is though...

The parts indeed appear to be for a Sky Screamer IMO. I compared the parts to the Sky Screamer at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, and everything seems to match up (at least the colors).

A skyscreamer? Really? Ugh! It better be taller than Knotts or SFMM will just look foolish for opening another one in SoCal...

Plus YOLOcoaster (we think?). A new flat ride two years in a row seems pretty good to me. Maybe after 2013 they can focus on other parks. Not that I will complain if SFMM gets more monster coasters... :|

^ You must have your head under a rock, at least a rock that encompasses SFMM!

Six Flags hasn't been paying nearly as much attention to SFMM as people believe they do. This whole deal with them getting yearly major attractions is just the Six Flags business plan. In fact, SFMM was one of the smaller additions of 2012, with X-Flight being the highlight.

I know the business plan corporate-wide is to have a new attraction for each park every year. It just seems like they over spend on SFMM. At the very least, they could use the funds that they have allocated for SFMM in better ways.
