Seeing the big rides from the road/hiway is basic marketing 101... "impulse buying"

People drive by,
kids or adults see the coasters, "that looks cool, lets check it out".! 
THey go in check out the park and rides, SDC generates 3-500 bucks or more per family...

Thats impulse buying...  You have to properly market your product, to sell your product ;D

Um... if they're driving anywhere near SDC they were already going to SDC.  No one just happens to drive that way and then magically decides to go to SDC spur of the moment. 

Again SDC is NOT SIXFLAGS.  Stop trying to make it be.

We were notified by WDW that our choir has been accepted to perform at the Epcot Candlelight Processional on Dec 2nd.  Whoppi Goldberg will be the narrator.  Super excited and happy for my kids.

Or am I alone in getting excited when I spot something from a theme/ amusement park before I get there?  :-)

There in lies my issue.  This is not Six Flags or even an amusement park.  This is a theme park who's mystique is the rides being hidden from the main midway.  Why would we want the park to be like any other park?

Well I hope you're wrong because I don't want an eyesore at the park

Carr Excavating shared more photos today.  I got to admit, the retaining walls really class up the look of this ride

Two Thoughts

Hope they put caps on them.

Hope they use a concrete stain to knock the gray out and blend it better with the natural landscape.

This particular style of retaining wall does not use "caps". You can see a photo in that update of a completed section to get an idea on what the finished product will look like. 

Stain is not needed.  They will naturally age over time

We've had similar surveys in the past.

It's like people have never heard of screen shots before.  ::)

I think you know what I meant and while yes you can see things if you go looking for them right now, it is not a blatant scream of "LOOK AT ME" like what a sky screamer or a hyper coaster would be.

Or were you just trying to be argumentative?

As long as the ride cannot be seen from other parts of the park or outside the park then I'm fine with any of those except the woodie.  Personal preference there.

...and seriously that planter between TNT restrooms and Christmas Corner needs to go.  Look at how it is just in the way

It sure is a lot of seating to lose though.

Seating for what?  The Christmas parade?  People will survive.  The greater need is a wider midway on what will become a very busy point in the park

Thats right....I do remember them taking that out for the Ripcord now:(  I remember being mesmerized by the ripcord when it was first put in.....but I was too chicken and cheap to try.

I'm guessing the RC boats are gone too?  Another flashback memory.

Yeah all the RC are long gone.

Technically the only one that's still there is the Henrietta, but you'd have to know that's what it was to even recognize it.  It's just the hull.  The Cotton Blossom was removed before 1996 and RipCord is there now.  The Victrix was removed long before that.  The little boat models  that were near Finnish Fling are gone as well.

So you're saying they can't build another storage area over at the new site? :o ???

That would be great.  I thought the sinkhole was right behind that shack?  I can quite picture how that shack is positioned currently.  I would have guessed they wouldn't have enough room.  I would have guessed a new building by the current bathrooms in the ticket building would be the best place for adding a new shooter place.  I think there a parking lot behind it that just could be used.

I was talking about right next door to the current GR building.  There is the former wedding booking building that is no longer being used that could be bulldozed and the storage building could be built there.  The current GR building will have to be remodeled anyway to handle rentals and Trailblazer/Showlover passes. 

As for the bathrooms, That can be remodeled and expanded some into the area.  I was thinking the "Newsies" building could go in that corner off the back of the OM building -- it would be to your immediate left once you enter the new gates.

NEW LOGO AREA -- so I was thinking the log and axe could be moved to the planter area south of the Administration Building.  (so around the corner from the ticket booths - past the water wheel).  It would still be front and center that way and you would have the ability to get more of your people in the photos.
