Finally seeing midtown in person now and all our fears seem to have been for naught. Or at least they took our worries into account. No obvious supports or cheap false facades, but they did replace a roof and do a number of building improvements. The stuff for the christmas displays is well hidden under boxes and such for the time being.

The tree house being gone looks weird, but the ghost trap really stands out now and it is fixed up and working well.

^Would we not think that the facades are removable for the rest of the season and only installed for OTC?

Yeehaw!  That gives me hope that the PTB do treasure the small things that make it SDC!

That was my thought as well when I read that above.

I was concerned that even if the facades were temporary, the supports and modifications to hold them would be garrish. That turned out not to be the case.

Off topic from the current discussion, but I read somewhere on TPR that they redone some track and replaced the steel wheels on Outlaw Run with the traditional polyurethane wheels? Apparently its providing a much quieter and smoother ride experience now. I will have to check this out when I go up on Wednesday hopefully.

OR was definitely quieter when we rode it during spring ride days

I really would appreciate it if someone would post photos of the old treehouse area. I would like to see how it looks with the treehouse gone. I am sad it was removed...so many fond memories of it from my youth and when I was assigned to work there in the early 1980s. It was a great attraction. Thanks in advance.
