Construction/Rumors / Re: SDC's 2019 Project(s) and Park Developments

The last walk through this summer I noted riverfront areas, and these additions were created 79-87.  Property near the lake was not well used.  I do vote they keep a lake. I can see retooling this I just hope they do it right.

I wouldnt be surprised to see a new lake,  cement pond sort of thing, could easily encompass the ride area,  I would expect it to butt right up to the new retaining wall at FL. That whole area would still be water related. 

That way the whole area would "flow" together from FL over to the RibHouse.....  (see what I did there......   "Flow",  water?  water flow?.LMAO!!! ).,  I need coffee.

All right.  Place your bets on whether or not Rejoice sign will show up this year.  My bet is no because of walls

Agreed,  if the walls are over 7-8 feett tall for "privacy"..  No sign

The ride in question that Swoosh mentioned.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7QF8Fm-04U

yes, I can see that fit into the lost river/lake silver area. 

Massive area, Massive ride, of course SDC will be taller, for the world record claim.. The only thing I wonder about it, is that size of a ride, on that much real estate.?  That a lot of space for 1 attraction.. of course in theory it would be replacing 2 rides..  maybe that is how they are going to justify it...   

LOL>.   "IF" that is whats happening...

It could easily butt right up against the retaining wall at FL. .

It still kind of surprises me they wouldnít want Lost River open for at least part of next summer. It will be interesting to see if AP/Riverblast have longer lines on hot days next year and how much longer they will be. Also I hope the replacement has a bigger capacity because the line for Lost River seemed to always move pretty slow.

IF it is a big as Swoosh is indication, and it very well could be considering the area they will be using. It will take a year or longer to complete project.  Fro a 2020 Kickoff,  they would have to start right away...

IF this does happen, the views from the train, AND aerial views next year will be very interesting..... ;D

I have to say I'm kinda surprised if this is legit happening now. I had thought FM AP or even FITH would be higher on the list to receive attention by the park.

so they do a large water attraction now, then AP can be replaced with a coaster and nobody will think a thing about it..

Well if the rumors from earlier this year are true, this will be the last weekend for Lost River and walls should go up on Sunday?  Itíll be interesting to see if this pans out or not

If this does happen, It will be the best kept secret at SDC on a long time..    ??? ???

That was the hot topic last weekend when we were there.

Apparently not too much of a secret?  ;D

Well? Uh? yes..

Talking about it last week, a project of this size.??. (if it happens). 

No mention of it, no rumors this summer, last spring, or even last year..   
Yes..  That makes it a secret...  (IF it happens)

I cant help wonder now, with the " Lost River/Lake Silver/Riverfront" Project or whatever is happening, which would be a 2020 unveiling AND The latest survey, prices, passes and so on.
 
Are they going to do a major restructure of entry fees and SP's and coincide it with a big kick off of their latest attraction and/or newest area in 2020

So i did the survey...  have to say, I am not at all impressed with their line of questions..  Sounds like they are going to jack up the price..
 
Maybe we have been "spoiled" at season pass rates for so long, any increase sounds bad.

I would hate to say, I would not go to SDC, But if they were to raise the price of SP,. or eliminate it completely and do the other passes...  I would consider it....

What bothers me most of all, NO mention of season pass..  just new passes...  now of course this wouldt go into play until 2020 at the earliest.  But still... something to be thinking about..

I for sure would not care about a combo with Showboat until they go in a redo the current show. It just isnt that good of a show.. IMHO..

Just to be clear, I do support comfort at work. I just wish that the shoes fit in better with their costumes, is all I am saying. And no, I did not stare at employee's shoes all day.  But when one stands in line, you notice random things. ::)

I agree..  Things, 

You know..... Things  :o

For Example :
Shoes,
2 way radios,
cell phones,
secruity carrying guns,
AC units on buildings,
fans,
machine tracks in the Asphalt,
Things.. :)

Grinches, everyone.  :D

The parade is a tight fit, but it's very fun and inventive for a park like SDC. I wish they could expand the pinchpoints just a little, and am still scratching my head over the new area that actually added a big pinch point, but oh well.

"pinchpoint"???
LOL.  So thats what you call it.. 
YES!!  Stay away from the that new area..... 
The "pinchpoint" will be quite obvious..!!    ::)

Holly Jolly.... Holly Jolly... Holly Jolly Christmas....

The one thing I don't miss...

LMAO, Not sure if I dislike this more or that blasted tree going off every 15 minutes. I like most of the Christmas celebration but if I had some explosives that tree would be history.  ;D

I have some large mortars left over from the 4th..!! :)
