I would be surprised if they didnt "massage" TNT entrance a little bit, since it is in the immediate area of TT...  of course TT will get 99% of the love this year and next... LOL

The Mining carts might show back up front in the area to be reworked for the "new" entrance....

We were sent a photo of the new construction wall that has gone up around the former area where the Magic Shop and the TNT arch was located.

...and seriously that planter between TNT restrooms and Christmas Corner needs to go.  Look at how it is just in the way

WOW!   that is a fence! 
I didnt think about it coming out that far... No other pics of that area?

I hope someone that was in park this week took some other pictures from different angles, and shares them with us....

I wont be back for at least 2 more weeks....

The magic shop has moved over by FitH temporary and will be moving to the general area of FL after this season

Hmmm, does this mean that art/sign shop across from the toy store is going to move out?

It was just a placeholder anyway.

It sure is a lot of seating to lose though.

Seating for what?  The Christmas parade?  People will survive.  The greater need is a wider midway on what will become a very busy point in the park

QUESTION????

Does anyone know what the estimated revolutions per minute of car is for TT..    I havent seen that number anywhere yet.. 

Being a controlled spin, that has to be calculated somehow

Carr Excavating shared more photos today.  I got to admit, the retaining walls really class up the look of this ride

Awesome pics

Thought as I was viewing them.....has the park every had any issues with wildlife around the rides?  I'd assume the fencing would keep out the larger creatures (deer, humans).  But Id hate to think about what might happen to a random squirrel.

Bird strikes are pretty rare, but not entirely unheard of in the coaster world. Most animals figure out to stay clear pretty quick though.

Weird that they are going back in to finish the retaining walls still. Seems like the site sat motionless for long enough - would have been easier to get it done earlier. Probably a scheduling issue.
