Construction/Rumors / Re: SDC's 2018 Project(s) and Park Developments
« on: June 07, 2018, 05:38:03 PM »
To be totally honest I do not even know what the theme is anymore it has been broken so many times. Now we have all the outskirt areas. Wilsons farm, Grand exposition, Firemans landing, TT, cartoon characters, They had the globtrotters. Then in the fall they throw in the cowboy stuff. It is totally confusing.

Nope.  Not going to keep my mouth shut on this one.  The park's themes all fit into the bigger story of the 1880s city.  Until we go down the rabbit hole that is Dollywood with its themes that are all over the place, we are NOT going to be the board that is known for whining about stuff like this.  Our themes work together.  Yes GE is a bit of a stretch, but it still works.  1950s with 1880s at Dollywood does not.  We are not even close to being "confusing" unless you are going out of your way to be "confused"

and I am still wondering how this entire conversation has ANYTHING to do with 2018 projects.  Sounds like this should be in future speculation or ideas.

They can do that at any Starbucks (or McDonalds for that matter).  Leave the laptops at home and enjoy SDC for the 1880s frontier village it is!

Think PRE-ROPE DROP.

I wish they would turn the new place into a coffee shop.

Iíve long said they should move Carrieís Candles and expand the Mill into there with a coffee shop.

They didn't have a choice.  From what I have heard it was slated to be done this coming off season, but it decided it needed to be done a little sooner.

So, they had a choice, and chose.

No.  What needed to be fixed decided that it wanted to be fixed now.  As in the pipes.

I don't mind the construction, but did they really have to wall the entire area off? Hopefully they can reconfigure that soon once the walls go up. I didn't realize how many times I usually take that route to cut through the park until they closed it off.

I wonder if the new building will have any gimmicks to hold lights... Should be a nice new facade anyway.

In my update I show that there is still a path (though quite narrow) through

Great Updates Swoosh....you just sold me on checking Bigfoot out.

I just booked a kidless trip to Vegas in a couple weeks!!!  Go visit he desert in the middle of the summer...lol  Got a food tour I'm eyeing, wife wants to see a couple of shows, and we'll probably stay inside as much as possible.  I'm staying between Circus Circus and New York New York....so maybe try to get a coaster in.

Did you see this about Bigfoot today?

Yep.  Imagine that.  Someone is actually taking action against a fake reviewer.  Karma

I am still placing bets on something happening in and around Lake Silver and then finally the long speculated area between PK and WF to eliminate the dead ends on that side of the park.

Like Iíve said before, I wish theyíd rebuild LR (and theme it) and build a new themed log flume in the old WB lot - having both tie into Firemanís Landing.  That frees up land over by PK/WF for a bigger project.

Still kinda baffled why they chose the summer season to do a major reconstruction project like that. Seems like it created a huge bottleneck there.

They didn't have a choice.  From what I have heard it was slated to be done this coming off season, but it decided it needed to be done a little sooner.

Freeman Health!  Thatís what the group was called.   

All I know was that the paid parking was full and they were using all of the lots.  I found a spot where I normally park out by the old Lot C turnaround
