I went out Monday and took a look while there. I must not have the foresight you have, it still looked a mess to me. Big piles of dirt and a ride that was being worked on. I was thinking end of June. Won't it take a while to pour the cement and let it set plus get the queue ready?

I would say it could open in the next couple of weeks. They can actually get the queue ready quicker than you would think.

Did my donkey title just change???

I believe that most of the dirt piles are in an area that will be an empty pad. The ques could take a week- possibly. SFOT is so far behind on everything new this year. Looks like it has been a rough spring in that regard for a variety of reasons- not necessarily weather. I did see a fair amount of progress last Saturday. Things will sure be nice we they get finished though!

Did anyone else see the actors from the TAG movie were randomly at the park yesterday. The park was trying to break a world record for Freeze tag. Sometimes the Six Flags marketing goes far and beyond even for them. You can see more if you look at SFOT Facebook. There’s a video of them riding Batman. So Hawkeye was on Batman :p

I've heard a rumor that the reason the ride assembly was delayed for so long was a huge mix up between the bolt patterns on the foundation and the bolt holes on the base of the ride. The bases had to be modified locally and that process was pretty time consuming. Take this with the grain of salt with which it was issued.
