Swoosh, what do you think this new iron work is?

The exit from the unload side of the station and the ADA entrance to the ride

That or the main queue itself... hard to tell where the queue is going to go when its on footers. Im assuming you'll exit through a gift shop somewhere, could that be on the lower level?

I think the store will be back in the City and will feature stuff for both the new ride and TNT

^The pottery shop will be transformed for this and will sell only Grecian Urns.  Other racks in the store will also offer Parthenon snow globes, Zeus lightning hats, and Nike shoes.

Maybe the potter will just provide the urns for the new store.

I thought you were a History Buff  :P

:(

In that case, we may have to put some items on clearance and reorder.

The teaser made it into the latest SDC pathfinder. See Attachment.

I'm told that the walkway bridge has been widened on each side. It's supposed to look even more huge now. I think that indicates some queue will be on it, even if it is just the pay-to-cut line. I'm sure there will also be a lot of people standing around there to take photos of people on the ride coming back to the station.

KY3 posted this yesterday... http://www.ky3.com/content/news/Silver-Dollar-City-reveals-a-few-details-about-new-attraction-435913793.html

Again this keeps getting emphasized:
Quote
The park calls it the biggest attraction EVER. It says will by more than double in size than any other attraction.
Again Wildfire is their biggest and most expensive coaster overall. I am very anxious to see how project 2018 will top it.

On a side note, have fun reading over on the KY3 Facebook page, lol @ the comments on the article.

Wow. We already knew it was expensive and would have at least one world's first, but now they are saying twice the size of the next biggest attraction, and several world's firsts? It just doesn't look that big...

Easy to rack up world's firsts with a spinning coaster though...

And how about that "colossal, world-footprint attraction"... Sounds like more support for the Time Traveler theme. No idea what else that kind of hint could be alluding to.

The fact that they are still talking about spending this much and it being so huge makes me very hopeful again for the theming.

August 16th absolutely cannot come soon enough! I just can't take much more of the speculation; I gotta have answers!  ;D

Oh dear. I made the mistake of doing just that. I swear, these people have never priced a vacation to a theme park before or something. I've done a LOT of research on theme park pricing, and SDC is absolutely one of the best deals out there.

Yup, I agree with you on pricing.  Good grief, they can't give it away.  I've learned to avoid reading comments on anything.  Too much stupidity -
