Great shots, cowboy.  Now, what exactly are we looking at?

Good question....There are several foundations poured, one big circle foundation, and then several of the others look like they are about to go more vertical.

If they are going to reuse the balloons.....do you think they might go on the circle foundation?

Also, I didn't go into half dollar holler, but I noticed not one kid was using the ropes portion of that attraction. Either it was closed, or no one is interested. That is one area of the park I wouldn't mind them removing and letting it go back to a natural setting.

No. The balloons are not going on the round foundation that is already present.

My guess on that foundation. It looks exactly like the old kiddie swing foundation in a new location so I am guessing the Kiddie Swing ride will be going there.

That makes a lot of sense. It just looks like a foundation that something is going to sit on, there isn't any anchor bolts coming up through the foundation for anything big to attach to it.

Thanks so much for the photos cowboy! So much going on right now. I have no idea anymore what all those footings could be meant for. I'm guessing the new play area building will take quite a few of the big ones that are close together though.

What always gets me when I think about this development is that we aren't even seeing the whole area under construction yet. All of Geyser Gulch is going to be included in this as well. It's going to be huge, and will be a defining moment for the park when the design is unveiled. Could be amazing ...could be another Grand Expo.

I have high hopes for the play area though. Funny you mentioned HDH being deserted. My nephews absolutely love the ropes course, and I know most other kids that age do as well.

Is the 3rd the last day it will be open or the 1st day it will be closed?

I would think that since the 3rd is on a sunday, AND the last day of moonlight madness..... GG would be open in the 3rd..... then closed for the season..

just guessing on my part..

So do you think they'll build a structure around the S&S shot tower to help hide it?

I hope so!  How is it to be themed?  As a fire pole?

To me that would make the most sense. Not the biggest fan of shot towers personally but I'll have to wait and reserve judgment on this one.

It's not even a big one.  Kind of a joke, if you ask me, unless they theme it well.

Swoosh, did you ask the question because you know the answer?
