It's a good concept, especially for parks which want something less expensive than a big B&M that isn't a Boomerang or SLC. Hopefully more of the El Locos will be built with the four-across cars (like Movie World's Green Lantern), as those outside seats are insane!

Hey everyone! Stopped by the park to shoot a quick update. It's been raining the last 4 days in Vegas and the advantage of having an indoor park is construction isn't hampered by weather! The lift hill for El loco is now in place with the lift motor and chain on site for installation. I hope you are all having a nice weekend and enjoy the photos!

More parts sitting outside in staging. Probably the only time these parts will see rain.

Any idea what the ride is going to do from the first dive loop to the second dive loop?

Thanks for the updated John!

I'm not certain it's hard to see exactly what it will do but I believe from the look of the supports it looks like another outward banked turn above the bridge.

I've only been on one standard El Loco, and I thought it was okay, but the custom layout on this makes me think it will be exceptional.

Impressive! The quick construction time has to be a selling point for S&S.
