I've noticed that the concept art is also showing 8 person boats instead of the 6 that they had before.

It's 8 per raft and 18 rafts total. They will have latching seat belts and not Velcro.

Not much for me to complain about....maybe the lack of a tunnel (from the looks of the drawings) is a big out of place considering the backstory.

There is a tunnel that leads to the lift. Brad talks about the mineshaft tunnel at about the 26 minute mark in the live stream: https://www.facebook.com/sdcattractions/videos/742966136146784/?t=1562

They keep saying that it's the tallest raft ride drop in the Western Hemisphere. Is there being another one built overseas that will be taller?

Happy to see that the minimum height only went to 40" since this replaces a ride that was one of the 36" height rides.

If their live stream wasn't going to actually be live not sure why they allowed others to stream the announcement truly live. Watched the announcement on KY3 well before SDC's FB Live Stream finally got to it.

So are we anticipating a full reveal next Tuesday, or simply another strategic marketing tease of the 2020 attraction?

Since they have it scheduled to do a live video on Facebook, I'm expecting a mostly full reveal. There could always be a few details that they hold back, but I would guess that the majority of info will be released.

The roof is flat for easy access to HVAC equipment just like every other new building theyíve built here recently.  They then build a facade roof around it.

That does seem logical. I think that we were seeing it as odd because there is nothing on the end, but they probably just haven't made it that far with framing yet.

Have any stairs been spotted inside of the new Rib House? My guess is that the odd roofline is because there will be an upstairs area on the back side that overlooks the ride.

Thats not how it is marketed on their website, it isn't listed till you get to three day tickets. I'm just conveying the cost via staying at Disney.

Itís not listed on the ticket page.

On property guests get Extra Magic Hour each day and it rotates between Disneyland and California Adventure. This alone is a huge reason why we stay on property. Virtually no wait in Cars Land for an hour is priceless with kids that are huge Lightning McQueen fans.

The morning that you get with 3+ day tickets is a Magic Morning and only happens on the Disneyland days and not California Adventure.

... and its best to buy the 3 day/one park per day with early morning access with the two nite stay with the park hopper...

Not that it makes a huge price difference, but if you are staying on property you get early access every morning of your stay.

I think that opening the new land without the flagship ride is the main issue. Also, people talked up that there would be insane crowds so people stayed away expecting it to be crazy.

Weíre going to Disneyland in December and Iím actually happy that itís flagship ride wonít open until January.

If you look at the last teaser photo, it says "corkscrew"; which doesn't really fit with the other stuff on the map.

It looks like there might be a bridge where the channel goes over another portion of the channel. Could there be a downward corkscrew type element in the new ride?

Large pumps have been added to the large holes on the eastern edge of the construction area.

Could the area in the foreground of the last photo (area with the ladder in it) possible the the station?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Season pass upgrade
« on: June 23, 2019, 09:06:48 AM »
It really seems strange that they seem to allow all these other free tickets to be upgraded but not the BAF passes

My guess is that there would be too big of a loss of revenue if they allowed BAF passes to be upgraded. For our family of 3 passes, we could just buy a single kids season pass and then use two of the BAF passes on our first visit to upgrade to 2 adult season passes at significant savings. This would be easy to plan for since we know that we will have the BAF passes. The other free tickets that can be upgraded arenít a for sure thing for most people so upgrading with them canít be planned for that well. Also, Iím guessing that most people that upgrade the free passes wouldnít have bought a season pass otherwise so SDC is gaining revenue from them.

Donít really anything to base this on other than speculation.

How long have they been offering this $15 one ride Trailblazer pass that is only good for Time Traveler?

I am pretty sure the "rule" in the past was......

Upgrade on any "paid" ticket...

Which is why I am surprised that the free passes for teachers this month is upgradable..??...?/

I also asked about the free and discounted teacher tickets in June. They confirmed that BOTH of them CAN be upgraded to season passes.
