Following the success of the park’s first DC comics ride Superman Ultimate Flight, The Joker roller coaster serves as a complete makeover of Roar, a GCI wooden coaster from 1999 which was recently closed to become The Joker. In this incarnation of the ride, a dual-coloured steel track follows a wicked layout of twists and turns and follows in Rocky Mountain Construction tradition of crazy inversions and ride elements, (in this case a breaking wave turn and a step-up under flip.) The Joker will open at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in 2016.
