Since it's Memorial Weekend more rides are continuing to open across the country and one of the most anticipated rides in the Mid-West opens this weekend, The Joker at Six Flags Great America.
We were invited out to their media day yesterday and as you'll see from Scott's report below it went off perfectly. Not only was the event amazing but all indications are that the ride is running amazing. And as you can see from the video below, it looks smooth and fun!

We'll start off with our full Reverse POV, B-Roll and opening ceremonies.
Our ride back to Joker. Nothing but top of the line service.
We're all ready to go!!
We got a lot of awesome off-ride pictures of the ride
The ride entry
The Joker packs a lot of thrills into a very short footprint
You can see just how close it is to the original Batman. They'll be duking it out for years.

As you can see, dispatches were happening pretty quickly, especially for a media day event.

Everything blends in very well
Thanks Six Flags Great America for having us out. We loved the new ride and can't wait to ride more this summer!
