According to California Coaster Kings, Riddler's Revenge will be repainted bright green and yellow supports...

Can't say I'm a fan of that color scheme, but I'm happy the ride is receiving a fresh coat of paint regardless.

^ I'm pretty sure the color for Riddler's Revenge looks to be set in stone. From Screamscape:

Some other details uncovered as part of today’s visit, Riddler, as part of the Metropolis makeover, is scheduled to receive some new paint, in the form of yellow supports, and a new shade of green for the track

 

Personally, I don't like Riddler's paint job, the old one looks A LOT better..

 

 

BUT JUST WAIT! Give it about 2-3 years and we'll see more ugliness if they install one of those damn Joker 4-D Free spins with the god awful color scheme.

Since they have a zac spin, do you think they would really put A Joker clone in?? I mean La Ronde has two inverts and SFNE has a boomerang and a GIB, but I don't see the biggest park in the chain Installing two similar rides.

some other news from Screamscape

 

 

Some other details uncovered as part of today’s visit:

 

Riddler, as part of the Metropolis makeover, is scheduled to receive some new paint, in the form of yellow supports, and a new shade of green for the track.

 

Recent visitors will have noted that the observation tower has been shut down for the past year. Regulations pertaining to the elevators were recently updated, and appropriate measures must be taken to conform to the new laws. The tower is expected to be down for the remainder of 2017.

 

Apocalypse is getting some much needed attention in the form of a partial retracking. No scheduled reopening date at this time, but work is progressing as quickly as possible to ensure a smoother ride in time for this year’s visitors.

 

Tatsu’s scheduled refurbishment has been completed, and the popular flying coaster will reopen when the park begins daily operation.

Would 3/25 be considered daily operation for Tatsu? Sounds like next weekend it will still be closed if Screamscape is correct which is a bummer for me since I love flyers, have never ridden it, and will be there 3/19.

I feel like "regulations changing" is just the standard excuse for sky tower now...

 

Also, the plaza area looks pretty plain if the renderings are accurate. Almost like they intend for it to be the overflow queue instead of part of a nice new area.

Is the tower still marked as a ride on the park map?

While I think it's unlikely, it isn't impossible given the way Six Flags has been homogenizing its parks. Typically SFMM has been immune to such homogenization, avoiding copy and paste rides like Sky Screamer, Super Loop, Gerstlauer Spinner etc; But now with a new CEO and SF wanting to reduce capex, we could see more copy and paste attractions at MM starting with this year's JL.

 

 

SF could easily pack up Green Lantern and move it to GE or SFA and put an S&S 4D in its spot. It'd be a way for SF to essentially get two "new" additions for the price of one and assure a return by putting the S&S at the bigger park. Though a free spin is probably twice the footprint length wise as Green Lantern, they'd find a way to squeeze it in. Or possiblrly put the S&S in Deja Vu's old spot to get some life into the back of the park. This is all hypothetical and I think unlikely to occur.

 

That being said, I'm probably in the 99th percentile of folks who'd hate to see GL leave. It does hurt at times, but it's such a weird, crazy, intense experience.

I'm in the exact same boat as you, planning to be there on the 19th and this will be a big vacation for me, I will rarely get the chance to come here again.

Tatsu up!

YEAH!!! That's awesome! Has Ninja been operating today? How crowded is the park? Any tips for a first timer?

Well Tatsu is now operating - thanks to coasternut for posting - so that's great news on my end. In looking at the operating schedule it appears that SFMM is preparing to be open for spring break starting the weekend after you and I will be there... so hopefully that means low crowds for us. I won't be back at the park for another decade or more so am really looking forward to getting on as much as I can. I need to search this thread a little bit to see if I can find the recommended ride order for visiting the park!

My brother works as a ride op at SFMM; he is scheduled for Tatsu fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo and ride attendant tomorrow and next Sunday, respectively. So it will be open on 3/19.

 

Hey, thanks! That's great to know!

Yes, Ninja was operating today. Batman is back to 2 train operation finally. 2 1/2 parking lots were full today, with several buses of kids there too, so it was busy. This was especially true of the restaurants. With so many of them closed due to the renovation of the area for Justice League, the lines were huge all day.

I'm going tomorrow afternoon. Glad to hear Batman is running two trains again. It was still down to one train when I went two weeks ago, so I skipped it. Hopefully it won't be crowded, but I'm definitely going to hit up Tatsu! I sure missed it.
