Some additional installation photos of Christmas in Midtown

There's no excuse for people who "can't" find Midtown during Christmas.  We may have to wear shades to walk through there.

I just about think those entrance trusses could stay and be decorated for other times of the year, as well.  They may be the secret to getting people into that area.

Shhh!  That's the nice, old fashioned, quiet area of the park!  Keep it a secret!

Unless you want a thrill ride plopped down in there you better hope the foot traffic increases the rest of the year.  JS

Thanks for keeping us updated with photos guys! Still seems so odd how they are shoeing this into the park. It seems like they aren't going to go nuts with rebuilding the "plaza" like we kind of thought, or at least that is the impression I'm getting right now through the photos.

Can't wait till coaster Christmas next month to see it in person again.

I think thereís more to it that just hasnít unfolded and presented itself just yet.  I mean maybe this new building is something not even related to TT.

1. Thank you tiffanylynnt for getting such great photos.  (I've added them to MiG with commentary).

2. Anyone notice how they have enclosed a large portion of the exit bridge's supports?  You can see it next to the covered structure they built on the entrance pathway that goes under the track back into the station.

3. I think a lot of you are getting hung up on the "no viewing platform" -- other than Wildfire there are no viewing platforms on any of the other coasters.  PowderKeg - you can only see the launch and the lift hill.  Most of the rest of the ride is hidden.  Outlaw Run - all you can see is the lift hill and the curve around it.  You definitely cannot see the inversions from anywhere near the station.  ThuNderaTion can't be seen at all.

Just donít go in expecting SDC and youíll be fine.  DW is its own park.  Thereís not a cohesive theme and some things are just stuck randomly around the park, but it somehow works.  Not sure about the ďmore entertainmentĒ - seems to be about the same as SDC to me.  Itís just all in one area so itís more in your face there (maybe why you noticed it more?)

What would ideal would be to set it up in the parking lot between FL and GE then itís not even in the park 😉

The new shop has gone vertical
Could this be the on-ride photoshop?

Wouldn't it be hard to get an on-ride photo on a spinning coaster?
I know that MOA tried with Timberline Twister/Fairly Odd Coaster and didn't have much success

I'll be there with my parents and husband Oct 12. We'll only be there for a few hours. We're only going to be there long enough for the events specific to the festival (special craftsman and a few shows.) We have evening tickets for Moses or else we would be spending all day at SDC.

Would you mind getting some progress shots of the new building at Time Travelerís Entrance?   There is a big peep hole near skillet across from Christmas Shop.

The new shop has gone vertical and some catwalks are in place on the final turn area back into the station

IDK about everyone else, but this is Homecoming week and we have started our competition marching season so "free time" doesn't exist for about a month for me.

Guys I love you - but for crying out loud stop screwing up the quote feature. 

You have to have a "[ quote]" and a "[/ quote]" tag otherwise you screw it up.  I get the want to only quote a certain part of the text but if you can't figure out the script thing you probably need to just leave the whole thing. 

Here's a good idea - hit preview before you post, if you don't have the quoted part in a quote box, start over and continue to do so until you have that quote box.  A good rule of thumb is DON'T DELETE THE LINE THAT SAYS WHO SAID IT ORIGINALLY. 

So keep this line
[ quote author=cowboy link=topic=3538.msg72847#msg72847 date=1506629609]

[ /quote]
and you need one of these too.

FTR when it was at DHS, the hardware during the day was just as ugly.  The payoff at night was definitely worth it though
