This morning Six Flags Discovery Kingdom held a hard hat tour of The Joker and they were awesome enough to extend the invite to us. So we sent Stephen out to brave the mud and send some AMAZING pictures of RMC's newest re-creation.
We also did post another SFDK update earlier with some pics from last week and of Pacific Rim. Be sure to click here to check out that update.

It's a bit overcast in the bay area today but that doesn't stop the excitement of a great tour!!
Way cool hard hat that Stephen did get to keep. Be jealous.
Doesn't seem that long ago that this truck was first spotted at the park.
Work is definitely in progress. Some of the things the crew has had to deal with so far during construction.
Love these pre-lift sections they've been doing.
Why have a boring trip to the lift hill?
Love the colors of the track
Mind your head
As you can see there is still a long way to go, but they assure us that the ride will be open "on time" ... when that is, well, you'll know when we do. =)
So far the lift hill is the only straight piece of track on this whole ride. And that's just fine with us!!
This is the view we'll all be seeing in a few months.
Obligatory thumbs up while standing in the track picture.
For you lift hill enthusiasts
Track ready to go up
Oh myyyyyy ....
We want to ride NOW!!!
It's not every day I drool while posting an update. Today is one of those days. =)
Captain Lee, Nancy and Russell really enjoyed showing off their new toy to us today.
Captain Lee earning those big bucks. =)
Justin the ride foreman from RMC. Seriously, how cool is Justin's job?
Some new track being placed in the first element.
Just think, it was just 5 years ago this week that we saw the first test runs for New TX Giant ... and now look what's going on. RMC FTW!!!
Soon ... very soon.
An overview and look at what else they are working on.
One last look from outside of the park.
Thanks again to Stephen for taking the time out of his day to go and cover the tour for us and a HUGE thanks to the park for not only setting up this great tour, but also including us. It's always such a privilege to be included in such a cool thing.
