This ride legitimately looks like every coaster logo "swoosh" track, made in real life! I hope it rides as good as it look!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

YOLOcoaster Update for March 25. Since Robb is off on the TPR Trip Down Under (the US) I told him I'd take care of this weeks update. I'll try and be mildly entertaining.

And here we all thought SFMM was getting a YOLOcoaster, in fact they are getting a Vekoma Flyer to replace the remaining flat rides at the park. The ride will be themed to Aquaman's 2nd cousin Mono Lake Dude.
3a.jpg
Standing on top of the flyers loop we can see the coaster formally known as YOLOcoaster.
4a.jpg
Flying off the track at this angle sure would have been fun.
5a.jpg
Apparently this part of YOLOcoaster was going to pull 3.14159265359 G's.
6a.jpg
Mono Lake Dude would like this part.

Hopefully Coke Freestyle will still be available here in all your favorite Mono Lake Dude flavors.

Station or something.

Bonzai!!!

It's like the Top Hat track is mounting the loop track. Kinky Coaster?

YOLO Overview.

This is where one of the two trains will live 51 1/2 weeks out of the year.

YOLO Flyover.
17a.jpg
Seriously, the track is pretty low here. Best case scenario is the blue fence moving on the other side of the support.
25a.jpg
Worst case scenario, nets on the bottom of the track.
18a.jpg
Holy Twist Mono Lake Dude!
19a.jpg
YOLO Zoooooom!!!
22a.jpg
This will look pretty awesome once the construction equipment is gone.

Heading into the "Top" hat.

YOLO Tower!

Swoosh the ride?

Charlie Brown would be proud.

Black is so thinning.

More erections near the station.

After Loop

Into Top hat

Double the pleasure
35a.jpg
There is a sign telling you what bus to take all the way over there.

If you are like 93.2% of other people you will walk to the old pick-up area before seeing this sign.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

The ride is going up pretty quickly now. It looks like it may be open by Memorial Day weekend judging on the pace Premeir builds their rides.

I love donkeys more than me.

^^ Greg, thanks for the great picture update. It's starting to take shape! I'm not a big fan of Premier, but this one could change my mind.
Coasternut,

I think so Wes, but I couldn't tell how much of the actual loop/tophat track was on-site. There was a bit more than that, I'll see if I got a picture of the rest.

EDIT: I think this was all the track that was still on site. Not much "Top Hat" track from what I can tell. Not sure how far up the loop the "top" part begins but it's more than those 2 pieces that are there I'm sure.

They still have both towers for the loop to be constructed, which if Superman Ultimate Flight is any indication, will be pretty beefy and filled with lots of columns. I'd say the end of April is still a pretty good projection of when the steel erection should be finished.

Well my noon class got canceled, so what better way to spend the time i wouldve spent in class than to drive up the street from my school and spend a couple of hours at SFMM?

I went to the park today just to ride Goliath and Batman. Everything had a thirty minute to a Fourty-five minute wait. The park was pretty packed as it was spring break for a lot of schools (Mine doesn't start until next week). Lex Luthor was closed and Apocolypse was running one train. As for FuII Throttle, I finally got to see it in person. I didn't get any pictures as the progress was the same as what you have already seen. Just thought I'd give an update.

EDIT TO ADD: I forgot to also mention that they were handing out blue boarding passes for Tatsu. I had to leave the line since I was pressed for time before my class met. Anyone know what that was for? I don't think I've seen SFMM do this before whenever I was there.
