All right.  How about an Ice House themed ride like Pompeii.  Put it where the current station and queue building for American Plunge is located.  New American Plunge can be like Daredevil Falls at Dollywood but themed more to a saw mill (instead of just the final lift hill like it is at DW).

This I wouldn't mind. I liked the theme behind Buzzsaw Falls and would love to see a revival in another form.

Now you're talking.  Both are river themed, and they could fit together well - even interact.  At the same time, as long as we're doing some long-range planning, I would love to see a full-service, sit-down restaurant inside one of the rides (like a Pirates of the Caribbean type thing).

Here is my vision...

ICE HOUSE SPLASH
The new Ice House Splash would be located near the Mountain Outfitters Knife Shop - the splash down will be aimed towards where the current American Plunge is located.  The show building will go behind the Knife Shop and the facade for the show building will match the other buildings in the area.

Inside you will get a "tour" of a ice block cutting factory.  The first thing you will notice is an extreme change in temperature upon entering the show portion.  As you meander the river in the show building, you'll have a few close calls with falling ice blocks and a falling ice cutter blade.  To end the ride you will exit the show building going through the "delivery door" to a giant splash down below.

SAW MILL FALLS
This new log flume will take guests through a working saw mill and lumber gathering company.  Guests will float past many scenes of the different stages of logging - even some of the wildlife is helping (eager beavers gnawing on the trees).  The flume will feature 2 drops, including one in the dark. 

----

Now for the final touch.  There will be a new lake constructed that both rides will dump into.  The back of the lake will feature new rockwork that will also house much of the show buildings for the new log flume.  Wildfire will now only accessed by a new pathway that goes past PowderKeg.  This will also set up the new plaza for the coaster that will go in between the two current coasters that are there (more on that in a future post).

Nope. This would be new.  Roaring Falls was sold when CC closed and has since been removed. 
Huh didn't realize it finally got sold. I thought it was the last thing remaining in the old park. When did it sell?

Granted, I have not paid attention for awhile while passing CC, but the last that I knew, this was still standing.

I guess it was recently removed (as in last month).  I have not had time to verify it myself.

Sounds perfect, but 2 things that sound wrong.

1. If you take out the WF road and make us go past PK, that will make traffic by OH, Saloon, FITH, PK, and PK viewing area even more congested. We need less traffic around OH and Saloon, not more.

2. If PK road is turned into a Various Coasters road, then there will be no reason to keep the normal PK signs leading up to it (which I think is neccessary in helping people find it and the anticipation). I dont want just 1 small sign on the line entrance you can walk past while going to another ride (that dont seem right). If they make it a 3 way fork or find another way to keep coaster traffic flow separate somehow, (like how most rides and their roads are in different areas of the park) it may not be bad.

This is just phase one of my plan.  The arches will have to removed with my plan anyway

Once the new coaster from Mack gets finished perhaps SDC could get them to refurb AP or build its replacement? I was browsing their water ride video catalog and got these ideas, maybe use the Waterboggan tower and have a flume pass behind or in front of Firemans Landing into Lake Silver to some degree. See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oj-SlNRxAUI
And here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7HpzVMBQog

And even though its a bit redundant to Riverblast, they could also utilize the lake (or make a new one like Swoosh mentioned) for something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7HpzVMBQog

Every time I see River Blast, I can't help but envision it as a ride at a new park in Memphis themed to Iron Clads and a Civil War theme
