Considering the lake was indeed a natural feature that predates the park I do think they will keep it intact to some degree.

^If you click back a couple pages in this thread I made the note with one of the photos that they appear to have saved the old rafts and were apparently using them for testing. This trough above seems to support the theory that they are indeed being reused. I don't think the newer (larger) boats would fit in those.

Coaster POV video: Definitely has a Powderkeg-ish vibe.

Looks like the original Lost River rafts there in the background. So are they reusing them to test for the new ride? Most importantly, does this evidence along with them stating it will be built in-house kill the speculation that this could be a variation or clone of Infinity Falls? (I was actually looking forward to it after seeing the videos posted on YouTube) Or will this merely be SDC's take on the ride with their own unique style reusing the old rafts?

The next few months will prove to be most interesting...

FITH will be hard to see go. Even with a "new" version, we all know it won't be the same in spirit. Goodbye baldknobbers.

Thats what I fear too. It will be a watered down shell of its former self.

Their Facebook page has been getting a lot of comments over it as well. Including an apparent employee claiming the same reasoning. I agree it is most unfortunate, and sadly time marches on as it was one of the original remaining rides from the old SDCTN days.

EDIT: To settle the other issue, Shave if you feel the need, you can always relocate this discussion starting from my original post to the Dollywood 2019 thread.

Granted the original post above was playing along with the obvious sarcasm, to answer both, Dollywoods Waterboggen ride is being reported by several sources to be getting ripped out for the same reasons as SDC's. Scroll down to "DWsuperfan's" post: https://themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=23793&start=17170

If any remaining rides of this type exist at other parks, don't be surprised to see their days being numbered too. A sign of the times I guess.

I heard a complaint once that we should shut the cave down because it's not ADA compliant.  ::)

Yup better take it out like the Waterboggen ride. (among others)  ::)

And of course NW Arkansas and SW Missouri is getting cheated again... over 1500 days since a Winter Storm Warning around here. Texas has had more snow than we have had over the past 4-5 years.

Been seeing some chatter that Dollywoods version of the Waterboggan is done. 2018 was the last season.

Yeah interesting how SDC stays on the short side on all their "big" coasters. All being right around 2900 to 3000 feet. Only exception to this rule is Powderkeg which comes in at around 3500 feet.
