Yup!  You got it.  Thar all a bunch o' genuses at that thar place.  And Branson is getting in on the project also.  They're building a fancy new airport just so they have a place to land.  But just in case that's not ready in time, Jim Herschend is loaning them one of his hot air balloons to make a parachute so they can land in Lake Silver.

With just a bit more development, we'll be ready to move this to the concepts page.

I think it's time to start asking "Is anyone planning a trip soon?" again.

Mmmm, I wonder how big the hole has gotten. Anyone know if the water works in the area have been shut off yet?

I think the water may be part of a larger recirculation system.  I'm wonder if they will reroute it or leave it as is.

I looked, but didnít have my camera with me. The water wheel is off and there is a large pipe diverting the water. The way it looks is that they are going to leave the water wheel and use it as part of the new ride or something like that. It would be a shame to see it go.

Another way to get you wet, perhaps

We are on our last little trip before school starts, and I took these pictures today.  I don't know if they give any new information, but this is what I have. . .

Thanks so much for the photos StaceySue, they mean a lot. Did you see how far back they've cleared?

From the photos it appears to be back to the water feature stream

I would say it is at least to the water feature and possibly to the spiral walkway to the side of it, if that makes sense.  We just made a quick walk through, and that pesky fence makes seeing things difficult  :)

I'm heading to the City tomorrow or Tuesday.  Hopefully I can update the progress since then.

Has this sign been at the Landing for a while now?  Is this a not-so-subtle sign for the River Battle?

No, that's always been there, even the river part. That whole thing used to be a lot more like a kid's fort in the early days. Any other photos?

I have a few others over at my Flickr page

I was there only a few days after StacySue so all of my construction pics are pretty much the same  :-\

Wow, it's good to finally get a look at the clearing itself though. Surely it'll be expanded farther than that though, otherwise the ride will not only be tiny, but really close to the pathway.

Any bets on when vertical construction will start? Or an announcement?

I was talking to someone in admin who seemed to know a lot  ;) but felt I was overstepping my boundries already by asking so many questions.

I did find out that if you are a fan of the Treehouse (Huck Finn's Hideaway), you best be making some memories now.
