Shoot build a history of the park place with original models and plans and what not that can be on display much like "One Man's Dream" at Disney's Hollywood Studios at WDW

Last time I checked, they feel that the attendance this year at SDC will remain flat, WW will depend on the weather (but they think it might be up due to how hot this summer is supposed to be). They are predicting CC's to be up due to the addition of Roaring Falls.

I do not have any updates on the entrance to WW, but I was told it was done.  I'll try to get an update from there and "around the horn" when I am in town the weekend of the 18th-20th.

That's all I got right now

Huh... I could have sworn that I'd seen the wheel of fortune near WF... When would it have been that it was moved?

Unless it is still there, which I cannot confirm right now, it would have been moved this past season

One important thing about the theme at SDC that you guys have seemed to overlook is how SDC honors long time employees and important people by naming things after them or making signs and whatnots and whathaveyas with their name on them as decorations.  Two new ones were installed this last year in the PowderKeg load station.

This is much like how Disney honors people with their "windows" on Main Street

There is something planned, I can tell you that.  Exactly what will have to wait a little longer before it can be disclosed

it's a great feature to actually have the live dalmation

The dog's name is Buckets and she belongs to the ride lead.  She is only there on Saturdays.

is the big bubble "aquarium" really supposed to be fed by turning the wheels? 

No, the wheels do nothing to the aquarium.  The bubble pattern is set on a timer that loops

I may be wrong, but I don't think there's one in the old location since Wildfire was introduced.

The wagon wheel was originally located near the Ice House near American Plunge.  Last time I checked there is no longer one there.  It was a "wheel of fortune" then.

Problem is, there is no room at the back of Geyser Gulch.  You have directly behind the treehouse, the waterboggan, and then right behind it you have the Red Gold Heritage Hall and GE.  If you go back by Splash Harbor you have the train track and the employee parking lot and not to mention the round house and TGS...

Maybe it would fit better over by American Plunge there south of the Main Square in a new area theme to lumber jacks and so on...

Actually the park's theme is the 50's. 

IDK how the Amazon fits into the park, unless this is the begin of a "retheme" for the whole park to more of what Wild Adventures is.

I remember last year we got the TGS open in time for Young Christians Weekend and the kids destroyed a lot of the themeing elements and did graffiti on the walls of the queue.  I know so people in R&D as well as PR that were not very pleased with the destruction that the "YCs" did to the brand new ride.

See I'm the exact opposite.  While the characters look cartoonish, I don't feel that they went cheap on this project.  The themeing is well done and it very cute.  I think adding it to Lake Silver would be a great idea (over by Geyser Gulch) though I would prefer the ride to be more hidden -- perhaps an addition to the lake, but out of sight?

So the GAP has infiltrated the SDCFanSite.  lol

Be careful visiting the GAP, they say that once you start going there, it is a lot like crack -- hard to quit.  The GAP gang plan on coming to SDC for Coaster Con next year... or at least most of them do.

Coaster do you post on GAP?
