Just adding a couple rides and coasters to an FEC isn't going to touch what SDC offers

Its complementary really and gives the strip and highway views visual interest and a icon.  I hope it works out.

It offers a chance for the areas to get some of the newer, compact coasters that and lots of fun but capacity challenged.  Just look at the woodie that a FEC outside outside of San Antonio added. 8 person train at SDC? Highly doubtful, but for a place like that, it's perfect.

I wish it's a giga or launched invert. Are wing riders that much different than Wildfire

Construction is underway: http://www.hometowndailynews.com/2016/04/27/one-of-bransons-newest-attractions-is-going-vertical/

Wish they had started on all these great projects just a bit earlier. It looks like I'll have to come back in late June/early July to check it all out.

I am really excited to see what they do with the new LED lighting system. I really wonder how many colors they went with. If done right just the lighting could be a attraction in itself.

I have heard the Michael Haygood is involved with the new lighting, 
I don't know if he designed it,
helped design it,
is installing it,
overseeing the project or what.. 
But since he is involved I guarantee the new  lights will be awesome..

Frontier City has an awesome LED light show on their wheel.  It's a little dangerous driving down I-35 at night because everyone is watching the wheel!  Hope Branson has the same thing in mind.

If Michael is involved, I would imagine he designed it and is managing the project.  He would be the expert with LED.

A half wheel, currently waxing.

Once done, the excitement will be waning.

Time to add a small footprint steel coaster.

Hopefully the lighting and special effects aren't as real as this one....

I would say that Michael is certianly involved because you can see his bus in the bottem of this shot.  Pretty cool shot too
