The Joker Wild Card & Whirligig (Update 2), Shopping Changes

Important Update

Fiesta Texas has announced a “change in plans.” Whirligig will no longer be named Crime Wave when it returns to the park after refurbishment. A new name is yet to be announced!

Whirligig seats still sit within the ride’s perimeter.

Most of Whirligig has been removed from the ride’s perimeter.

The area that will be home to The Joker Wild Card is completely clear. Crews will likely begin the early steps of construction soon.

Various pieces of Whirligig still remain.

Whirligig’s base and top covering have yet to be removed.

An overall look at the Whirligig site.

Whirligig’s top frame sits in a grassy area near Batman: The Ride.

The Jelly Belly on Fiesta Bay Boardwalk has been completely gutted. It appears that a new shop will be coming soon.

Spitze’s Sweets, located in Spassburg, has also been gutted.

We anticipate this shop to be the future home of Coaster Candy. Coaster Candy was originally scheduled for the 2018 season.
