I love the look of this coaster. Also the skull's facelift is great. They filled in the mouth and the eyes. They also updated the colors on the facade. It looks great and looks like a real mountain that just happened to form a skulls face naturally. The whole ride actually blends in well with the area which is what I had hoped for.

Looks great! can't wait to see how the EPIC theming looks on this amazing coaster.

Even if they choose to keep the supports maroon, it fits the theme just fine.

Well it looks like I'll be stopping by on May 25 to ride this on my way to Hershey. Wish I could say I was excited about visiting the park, but it's really just a credit run with a ride or two on Superman thrown in.

The last piece of track was installed on Apocalypse at Six Flags America today! I just happened to be standing there right in front of the ride while they were bolting together the final piece of track! It was a good day!

Here are a few pics!

A panoramic shot of the whole ride all put together. Sorry about the choppy panorama. I'm still learning how to use that feature!

Looks great. Looks like this is what you get in terms of new US B&M installations that don't depend on visuals or placement for a good ride experience.
Been you to have any spike, man?

I love donkeys more than me.

The ride looks very good. Seems to fit well in its location and should offer ten times the visuals that you couldn't get at Great America.

It looks REALLY GOOD! I was surprised at how well it fits into the space. It's very pretty now too. Looks so much better than it did at SFGA.The fresh paint and and new colors really give it a dramatic look. I am actually looking forward to riding it now. I wasn't too excited about it before I saw it today.

Now let's hope that the park makes up for a decade's worth of no significant additions & follows up with another new ride next season.They still need a replacement for two face after all & were supposed to get a coaster a couple years back for the "tween" market after all.

I haven't been following this project and I don't know what page all the details are on... Is this a regular sitdown coaster? Because I could be wrong but it's been a while since B&M built one of those!
