Funny that they just repainted that Superman Logo not even 2 years ago and they already ripped it up. Oh well, it was fading already anyway.

I agree with footers for the tunnel section, and probably some reinforcement of the tunnel as well.

^ If you watch the concept video, there is a footer in the plaza.

They were dropping circular ribar into the 2 cut out areas on Superman plaza. These are obviously for support columns.

New YOLOcoaster Update:The Coaster Guy

I'm going to start providing some construction reports myself as soon as I get my pass renewed.

I love donkeys more than me.

I haven't seen an official announcement on this but according to another Coaster Guy update the Gold Pass early entry perk gets you in 10 minutes prior to park opening, and rides will be ready to go. So depending on the number of gold passholders at the park on any given day it could mean a nice short wait for X2 or Tatsu.

If you've got the "gold" you're cool enough to go past this sign.

Apparently, not that many people have the gold...

Turns out YOLOcoaster will be the first ever launched, looping rebarcoaster!

Just kidding, these are actually for a new attraction themed to "Watts Towers" (Google it, kids)

We get a birds eye view of trucks and machines penetrating the earth. Sexy.

There once was a log flume here, and now it's just mush.

One day, thousands of people will be shrieking up this hill.. "YOLO!!! YOLO!!!" I look forward to that day...

Holy crap! How full is that queue for Termaplypse?!?!?

Correct. I was in e line this morning and got in at 10:20 sharp. 3 people there scanning passes. Pretty awesome. Not too many Gold holders, either. Maybe 100 people. But everyone got in quickly. I was over at Goliath at 10:25 and I was able to get on while all the regular guests were still outside park gates! It's a good head start.

I wrote the book about donkeys!

Haven't you heard the rumors? They're supposedly going to paint it a new color, turn the trains backwards, and market it as a new ride for 2014!


But all jokes aside, I agree, it's looking faded.
