I'm glad it looks like its finally gone up. I saw the first couple pictures the other day but not the most recent one. If someone visits the park, I'd love to see more. Is is noticable from the freeway?

^^WOW!!! Thanks for the update!!!

BTW, it looks as if there aren't as many LED lights on WW as there are on Riddler at SFOT. Having said that, I can't wait to see this thing at nighttime! The Wonder Woman emblems look incredible!!

Just received this from Six Flags today. Looks like $15 gets you a Waterworld season pass...but only if you already have a season pass.

Anyone see the passholder newsletter today? Says Wonder Woman is opening May 28 (May 26 for pass holders).
Read stuff I write (mostly about NorCal happenings) over at Coaster101!

That is a narrow space for a big ride.

It will be interesting to walk the path (to / from the parking lot) looking up at the swinging frisbee.

Looking forward to finding out if it will be better than Maxair / Delirium.

I checked out the web pages for the Water world mixed season pass and 15 dollar upgrades nither come with parking for Water World though a season parking pass at water world is 50 bucks. Wonder if it'll all be the same price for 2018.

Stumbled upon these photos over at California Coaster Kings. They really squeezed that puppy in there.

I really, really, really want Great Adventure to get one of these next year.

Having ridden both maXair at CP and Riddler Revenge at SFOT, I can say that the Zamperla models are more comfy. The seats and restraints are less cumbersome. The Zamperla Giant Discovery models rotate both directions while swinging whereas the Huss models only rotate one direction, albeit faster. My firm opinion is that the Zamperla models are a better overall experience. But that's just me.

SFDK's skyline is absolutely stacked. The weird part, is when you're in the park it doesnt feel as cramped as it looks from the parking lot etc;
