After the recent announcement of a name change to The Joker: 4D Free Fly Coaster from Total Mayhem, Six Flags Great Adventure has proudly been showing off the construction of the innovative ride.  The park's website for the coaster is featuring some very recent construction photos, like the one above.   In this photo the entire bottom level of the ride can be seen in place, with the great purple and green color scheme shining bright in the sun.

Construction moves fast on a 'stacked' ride like The Joker, evidenced in this photo.  The middle layer of track is quickly being assembled onto the supports, bringing the ride higher and higher in the air.  This new roller coaster will feature a vertical 120 foot tall lift hill, using individual 4-D winged cars that seat eight riders.  On-board magnetic technology will make riders invert at least six times during their ride on The Joker.

Six Flags Great Adventure also released the first in a series of construction video updates for The Joker a couple weeks ago.  While the footage is a little outdated when compared to the above images, it's still a pretty neat watch:
