Construction/Rumors / Re: SDC's 2020 Project (Thread #2)

So last week I took a vacation down to Orlando for a few days and got to ride Infinity Falls. I will say that the build up to the drop can be pretty intimidating. The drop really wasn't much, but the whole elevator thing was pretty crazy. As I said previously, I think once people get over themselves and see it in person, most will have no problem with it. It is certainly going to be different than Lost River, but LR wasn't that mild of a ride either.

Glad you got a chance to get out of town before school started..   hopefully weather was a little more friendly than it was here.

I've not experienced a visit there yet this summer that was as crowded as last year.  But, the lake is crazy!  So many boats and the newest kid on the block - wake boats! My boat used to look fairly good sized in a rental slip, and the last year I rented space it was a minnow.  I now have a long term lease at a marina, and there's a waiting list for those wanting in.  I wonder if there's a migration towards other types of entertainment rather than a theme park.


NOT if they have any idea what it really cost to own, run and maintain a boat...  LOL

This summer numbers seem lower than usual.  Does it feel that way in the park?

I was wondering the same thing the other day,  numbers just dont seem as high..

it has been hot,  But not real bad for very long.
Several Rain days...  but not all year..

Apparantly I have missed in conversation,  What is the Price tag on this ride area?.   With new walkaways, new restaraunt, revamp some of the other buildings....  Just wondering?

Been on the fence about posting this and I hope I don't get in trouble, but I will come out and say while chatting with some of the SDC staff, (particularly people in charge of construction and development at the park) but Swoosh was correct as they did come out and say to me that they were indeed looking at a demo and/or rebuild of FITH. Problem is they aren't sure whether they want to go forward with spending the money on it after some of their latest financial projections were put out as the project could easily cost more than both TT and MRF combined. This would be the parks most expensive project to date.

Well?  first of all the demo cost...  then keep in mind IF it is indeed a dark ride as "we" suspect it will be...  YOu have to build a bigass building,  AND then you put a New Coaster, with all the new stuff in/on it,  add some Special effects screens for effect.....  Priced at todays cost..  I can see the number for a large attraction..   thats a lot of 0's :o :o


Wouldn't that be in the 52 million dollar range ? Really hard for me to believe that number.

Well sort of.  Looks like we will be up there next weekend, the 24th etc.  I will also be up there tomorrow and leaving Friday for work.  I may get up to the city for a couple of hours before closing tomorrow and probably till noon Friday.

Good luck with your visits, Okie!!

Was planning on going up this Friday thru Sunday but turns out we can't.  I am assuming it would have been less busy than next weekend with the gospel thing going on.  What about the week after?  Trying to also get the kid to WW before they close.

If I understand you right... that would be Labor day weekend... 

Labor day weekend, will be busy.

I got an email granting me to attend the media event like I did for Time Traveler and I will be sure to get plenty of photos and video of the announcement ceremony and the touring of the construction site as well. Look for me in a red media shirt and a big DSLR camera bag. Feel free to say hi if you are attending.


congrats on the invite.. will be interesting I am sure..  big project.
