There's been some cool photos of the construction from backstage floating around various sites like Screamscape, sounds like there was some kind of a special media hard hat tour today.

I'm really looking forward to this ride and the new details we've been hearing about the FullThrottle area. It may not be the most impressive attempt at a themed area, but it looks like SFMM will be putting quite a decent amount of effort into making the area look nice.

Have any pics of the trains appeared yet? Would be awesome if they have lapbar-only restraints.


I think this will be a great ride too, despite it's length. I really like Premier rides and anything that launches is pretty awesome anyway! If this ride really has lap-bar only cars, that will make it even better!

Coaster porn that is :p

Maybe SFMM finally said "YOLO...let's get this thing vertical now!" We'll see how far YOLOcoaster gets when I come down in April...watch it be just 1 other track segment placed lol

I know more about donkeys than women!

I'm sure it's just me, but I think the track and artist rendering of the trains looks old fashioned. I'm not impressed with "the look" of this ride. I'm sure I'll enjoy it though. Just for me, visually non impressive...

Thanks to SirClinksalot, we have an awesome YOLOcoaster update from yesterday's construction tour! Check out all this awesomeness...

To get from the parking lot, you now ride in these YOLOcoaster approved buses!
2.jpg

3.jpg
Today's construction tour doesn't just focus on mounds of dirt! Oh, no... there is MUCH more to see! Read on...
4.jpg
"Go this way... REALLY fast... if something gets in your way... TURN!"
5.jpg
This is the sacred fire hydrant looking thingy. No touchy or you get wrist slapped by the evil munchkins!
6.jpg
OH! MY! GOD! Is that... yes... wait... am I see things? No... it's FULLFREAKINTHROTTLE SUPPORTS!!!! OMG! OMG! OMG!
7.jpg
This is a picture of a road, because we have road enthusiasts in our group, and we wouldn't want to disappoint them.
8.jpg
This is where Prince Desmond lives. When YOLOcoaster opens, they will be serving YOLOwings and YOLOfreestyle Coke in here!
9.jpg
The "YOLOcoaster" lifestyle includes lots of cement blocks and a dirt bike.

We are now being taken to a place where something incredible...magical...beyond words is about to happen...
14.jpg
Mr. Crane is about to do something that has never been done before...
15.jpg
Is that.... WTH?!?! Is it? OMG! YOLOcoaster TRACK!!!! SQUEE!!!!! YOLO!!!!
16.jpg
CAREFUL MR. CRANE! DON'T DROP IT!!!!
17.jpg
Yes, this is the first piece of FullFreakinThrottle aka YOLOcoaster track being lifted into place!
19.jpg
And there is MORE TRACK!!! This ride is gonna go up quick, isn't it?
20.jpg
Not only does YOLOcoaster have new track, but when YOLOcoaster opens, there will also be YOLOwings!
21.jpg
Hot Habanero is the quintessential definition of "YOLOwings!"
22.jpg
YOLOwings and YOLOfries!!! (The marketing people can thank us later for giving them all these awesome product names) =)
23.jpg
And now comes the "Sea of track" photos!
25.jpg
There is so much track out here, you could almost build a roller coaster out of it!
26.jpg
This short little nubby piece is my favorite of all the YOLOcoaster track pieces! I just want to reach out and pet it!
27.jpg
"I think I look pretty freakin' SWEET in this YOLOhat, don't you think?"

I'm getting a bit more excited about YOLOcoaster now. I read somewhere regarding one of the tours that we should have a bit of airtime over that hill.

I'm also looking forward to trying those wings, but not looking forward to those prices.
