With hundereds of major coasters at US parks, that primarily open their new rides between April and July, you are likely to find dozens of coasters that have the same brithday.

June 21st, well I'm planning to move out of the Bay Area on the 14th, so I guess I can stay here one more week for Superman. With a June 21st opening, they probably have to start testing by the 7th.

That photo is extremely old, at least by two weeks. Still a cool view though.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

Hello everyone! My name is Charles, I'm the full time ride supervisor at Discovery Kingdom, and today I bring YOU an update of the exciting things we have going on behind the walls at Superman. It's been a long process from design to where we are now and it's wonderfull to see the ride finally go from paper to standing tall at the park. Let's take a peak. :br

Image
This is what were here for right? Dirt!

Image
At the end of today this is what the site looked like from what will be the entrance.

Image
Ohhhhhh ahhhhh.

Image

Image

Image
Twisty?

Image
Here you can see the main entry points into the station

Image
And this is where the queue will connect to the old Zonga/Pandemonium Station

Image
Of course as we go upward, we are also working on electrical that will make the ride go zoom.

Image

Image
Here you can clearly see that we have both a single and double spine.

Image
Inside work is moving right along.

Image

Image


Image
Here's the exit and and overall shot.

Image
Hope you enjoyed looking around!

I'll continue to post as things progress to keep you in the loop :airtimer: only a few larger pieces to go! I look forward to seeing you all at the park!

It's All About Quality!
