Some new pictures from California Coaster Kings! The small bunny hop on the blue has been put up and the Top Gun Stall will be up soon! Note that the green double down goes into the hole in the ground! There's also a lot of twisty stall track in the foreground, hopefully up by next week.

Great Pics... Great Pics... Great pics

So much time is spent by several people postings these pics and I thank you.

I see more in these pics then I see first hand with it right in front of me.

The green track just looks sick... really sick.

So much progress this past week that I cant wait to see it again next week.

Thanks again for the pics.
At times i will do random acts of kindness.

Good to the last drop

Berry Farm, I love the photos thanks for sharing!

I especially enjoyed your before and afters. The green side of TC... oh my... I didn't even know you could do that on a roller coaster until today. RMC certainly has some state of the art maneuvering in their track layouts in both this and Wicked Cyclone.

Scream! looks gorgeous in its new paint, never did care that it was built over asphalt as many fuss about but I did not like the old support colors and yellow rails, looks outstanding now!

I feel 2015 is a big year of progress for SFMM, good to see them improving (and completely overhauling!) existing rides and structures.

I've gone pantless!

I appreciate the photo of the old "troll" exit sign. Didn't know any of those were still around.

They say blue and green must never be seen, but this coaster already has one of the best visual impacts of any coaster I've looked at! And fits so much twisting around the feet of Goliath.

I Love Donkeys!

Ya, i liked seeing the troll sign as well....wish those characters were still being used instead of the Looney tunes and ESPECIALLY the DC Comics characters.......i rather they didnt have one at all instead of that stuff...the trolls were original and unique to the park.
