Now that I look at those pics, Tatsu and Scream are in desperate needs of paint jobs....

Nice update, will most likely go to the park next Sunday and will update whatever I can. Really happy to see S:EFK operating during construction, that's a +1 for SFMM! ;)

Thanks for the Update. I wondered has there been any sighting on the Looping/top hat track?

Oh man Tatsu really is looking faded. Also, now hoping for a big rain storm to wash out that area where they're storing track! I really thought they stopped storing stuff over there after a bunch of that land fell into the wash a bunch of years ago!

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Six Flags did nothing to promote the Slingshot? No wonder they almost wen't bankrupt. :?r

Wow, they have at least two footers prepped and track onsite before May, looks like SFMM is actually stepping up their game to try and open a new attraction before July.

I think MM finally realized that the sun is NOT their friend, hence the white color of FT. Scream is just, ughh. It already in the worst possible location, and the color scheme makes it look even more out of place. And now with this faded paint........yep, it just screams MM. High Quality! :lmao:

They're putting that stuff on the land that didn't fall into the river so there's obviously nothing at all to be concerned about! :lmao:
