Time for a Virtual Ride on Six Flags Discovery Kingdom's Joker

We are getting closer and closer to the grand opening of The Joker at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, a new for 2016 Rocky Mountain conversion of the park's Roar wooden coaster.  Trains started cycling the tracks recently, maneuvering through the coaster's 100 foot tall, 78 degree first drop and three twisted inversions.  The theme park is still applying finishing touches to the ride's station and surrounding area - the entire place should have a very bright fun-house feel to it when completed.

As we wait for our turn to experience the ride's 15 moments of air-time, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom has released a new point of view video of the coaster in action.  As we all expected, The Joker makes quick work of the 3,200 feet of track, roaring (see what I did there?) through it at great speeds.  We've come to expect great work from Rocky Mountain on all their projects, and it looks like they won't be letting us down anytime soon!

Here's a link to the park's newly released on-ride video.
