A new 21-photo update has been posted to SFMW Online, taking a look at the construction of Zonga at Six Flags Marine World in Vallejo, CA. The photos, taken on March 23, feature some new angles of the track segments and supports that have been put into place so far. The latest word from the park is that the relocated Schwarzkopf coaster from Six Flags AstroWorld will be opening in late April.

That park is lookking a whole lot better. Im not too crazy though about the long narrow pathway leading to the main entrance.
I always thought that once that second accident happened on the Starfish, that it would be removed and sent to Geauga Lake.

Wow, the colors on Zonga are absolutely beautiful. It's just a damn shame I didn't get to ride it in Texas.
If you have a problem with clones, the solution is real simple—Stop traveling.

It really is the most beautiful coaster I have ever seen. Another great looking ride for Marine World!

Yea it was a fun coaster for houston. It only ran for like two years though than stayed closed the rest of the time. It is over 10 years old somewhere around 15 or so. Hope it does not crap out on you guys like it did us.

I don't think it will, a lot of work has been done to it. Also our weather seems to be more tire-lift friendly, so to speak. Can't wait!
