Joker Construction Update #2
Hello all! This is Jeremy from North Cal again here to give you all a quick update on The Joker! Things are all coming together incredibly fast, as Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has set the date for The Joker to open May, 27th! That is just right around the corner! This last weekend I decided to go out to the park and do a little snooping of my own to see if could see the new progress. I was hoping for a test run, or a glimpse of the new retail shop, but Discovery Kingdom did a pretty good job at keeping all the new stuff on lockdown. That being said though, I still was able to get a few shots of some pretty fantastic new updates.
So the last time I went out to the park the station was still looking a lot like Roar, so I was incredibly excited to walk up and see the beautiful paint job that they did on this station. There are still a few more things that need to be done, such as a giant mouth for the entrance, and a what looked to be the “top hat” of a tent to be added. I am very excited to see the finished product, as I remember how amazing it all looked in the concept art draw up. Also, right next to the staircase is an elevator for handicap which will make it much easier and accessible for those enthusiast in need of assistance.
I tried to get in and look a little closer, but this was as far as I could go. As you can see though they have been painting like crazy, as The Joker opens in less than two weeks!
Here is what I was talking about as being the “top hat”. I am guessing from the things I was able to see that the station will look like a mix between a circus tent and a funhouse.
