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?

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.

I asked SDC about BAF pass upgrades to season passes.

Free BAF Passes CAN NOT be upgraded to season passes.
Paid BAF Passes CAN be upgraded to season passes.

Just remember that they have to walk in with you. You canít just give them the passes.

We usually look for people waiting in line to buy tickets and ask them if they want to go in free with us. Sometimes they donít believe us but weíve actually had the ticket window staff tell them that itís a legit thing.

I did not know you could upgrade the free bring a friend passes, good info.  I was just going thru ours and threw a bunch away.  We have not used any of our free passes so far this year.  I think the next ones are good in July

We have a set that is valid through July 13th. We bought ours in October and they are 2 park passes.

including the bring a friend tickets (which, btw, they can also upgrade to season passes)...

I had no idea that these could be upgraded. We are needing to get our son a season pass because he is now 4. Thanks for the info on this!

When I was younger, I was always freaked out by the saw blade. The blade used to "come off" and roll toward the boats. At the same time, the lights would go out and you couldn't see what was going on. The 10 year-old version of me knew that it was only a matter of time before the thing malfunctioned and sliced me in half!

The blade actually slides at the boats again this year. One of my favorite parts from when I was little. Happy to see it come back.

Upgrades are done at the rentals window. Itís on the left side once you are through the turnstiles. Just before the bakery.

I would be surprised if you can upgrade the free and discounted tickets.... but it does look like you can according to the website. Good luck!

Did you see any prep work on the other side? (Not Pumpkin side).  You might soon

I just saw huge pipe joints that seem to match the size of holes in the concrete walls for the new ride.

Today while on the train I noticed that there is now a giant wall all the way across the end of the area that will be used for Pumpkin Nights. It is made out of shipping containers stacked 4-5 tall and 2-3 across. The side facing where PN will be seemed to be finished off (It doesn't look like a stack of shipping containers from that side.). I didn't have my phone out so I didn't get a picture.  See the attached photo for the approximate location.

The 2019 WW guest survey asks you to rank interest in the addition of body slides, large raft family rides and a grotto activity pool.
