Anyway, I'd love to see the ride and the Rib House "interact" with each other somehow - have the rapids sail right through the middle or something.

As a HUGE fan of California's Pirates of the Caribbean ride that goes through the Blue Bayou restaurant, I absolutely LOVE the idea of this.

RIVER RAPIDS CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
https://www.midwestinfoguide.com/2019/03/riverfront-lost-river-sdc_63.html

So are we thinking the "Riverfront Food Court" is going to include a new Rib House since it appears to be expanding into the lake?
No.  It’s going near the new rapids ride
It's hard to get bearings by just looking at the photos.  (This was the best update so far, btw.)  It seemed to me that the food court and the rapids might be near each other already, and that the Rib House might feed into a mutual dining area.

The last I heard anything about exact location, they made it sound like it would have the River go around it making it feel like it was on an “island” and you’d access the new Ribhouse via a bridge.  That info could be old though, so take it with a grain of salt for now.

Photos from today. Feel free to use them if you need them for something. The first photo is new concrete poured. This was close to the old entrance for lost river.

APRIL 19 UPDATE

Lots of new stuff -- and check out how they've already started to landscape the shores of the new river.

Interesting update. Thanks all for posting. I am betting that massive pit made for that footer is gonna be the elevator tower for one of those big slide drop sections. And I'm glad to see they are already getting started with some landscape/themeing work. Hope they go all out with it thru the course of the ride.

Hopefully I will be able to finally get up there and check it out for myself next week.  :)
