I disagree with moving the Toy Store.  With the added foot traffic to this area (and there will be much more when this area opens) it would make sense that the store will get more traffic as well.

I miss the days when the only talk of a "shot tower", was the wooden tower on Main Street where molten lead was dropped into water to form shot for a shotgun.

Shot tower currently at PK:

Has no one been to the park lately?

There is a ride foundation already formed on the lot -- closest to the entrance to GG

I assumed we would hear something when construction started, didn't think it would be this soon. Photos, even quick cell phone shots, are highly appreciated for anyone who will visit soon, or at any point throughout the rest of the season.

We have confirmation of a second ride foundation now in place - back in the area closest to the restrooms. 

Wish we could see some blue prints.  Any guesses on what ride it might be for?

Zamperla Crazy Bus transformed into a classic fire truck?

^A themed crazy bus wouldn't be so bad, but it would definitely need to be a fire wagon akin to whats on the main square vs. a 1930's fire truck. That's the scary thing about the park buying these off-the-shelf flat rides, they typically come in a small selection of shells and custom orders can get expensive and tedious real quick. As always, I'm hoping they realize how much their customers appreciate the finer details and don't just plop down what's easiest to get.

We need photos of these new developments! If anyone is visiting soon, a quick pic of anything new would be awesome and greatly appreciated.

How big are these foundations?

I hope they do with the Fireworks Factory theme. They already have a firefighter themed ride (Fire in the Hole) and Wildfire's theme is very similar to the Wonders of Flight concept. I hope some type of family coaster is included in the expansion, but I doubt that will happen. Maybe next year  :-\

The return of the ballons?

Unless they open up the area - there isn't enough room back there for the Balloons.  Now the original footer that I spoke of.  I could see it going there.

Shifts eyes.  What are you talking about sir?

The one near the entrance to GG looks to be a larger foundation.  If I had to guess it is probably a full-scale ride.  Maybe the balloons?  I don't have anything to confirm that, just my speculation.

The new one back by the restrooms is smaller.  I'm guessing it is for a kiddie ride.  Not a clue  which one it could be at this time - we know of at least 3(?) sitting off stage and it could be any of those (or something that hasn't arrived yet)

One is a catapult launch site; the larger one is for the catch net.

I managed to snap a couple shots yesterday but not many as I was trying to keep track of my niece in GG. I didn't see the foundation over by the bathrooms. With this being an all new children's area, I'm kind of surprised the shot tower is going in there.

Awesome! Thanks so much for the photos mammalone.

Looks like even more has been cleared out since my visit in May. Now there's no trees separating the area from the tracks across much of the site. Seems like they want all of that area to be concrete judging from all of the gravel spread over it. Will they build new play areas over this part of it? Or maybe some other type of structure? I can't see why they would clear it like that if it was just going to be rides right there.
