Did you see any prep work on the other side? (Not Pumpkin side).  You might soon

I just saw huge pipe joints that seem to match the size of holes in the concrete walls for the new ride.

Then theyíre still using it for staging.  I figured that would be the case for now

Thanks for the update!

Based on construction progress on the trough, is there any indication how the new Ribhouse might "interact" with the ride? Between the ride, the restaurant and the patio, that big space is filling up fast!

It looks like the new river will hug the building just like the old one did - but since there wonít be any indoor seating (at least thatís what we keep hearing) not sure itíll matter how much it interacts with the building

NEW PHOTOS

So I am putting the Ribhouse construction photos in the 2019 thread, because I am not convinced that it won't open this season.  Main reason is that Entertainment wants the Carousel Barn back for Rudolph during Christmas, but I also think that the park would want to start getting ROI on the new building ASAP which is why it appears to be coming together so quickly.

In the middle of the new Pumpkin Plaza area, there is a large circle of concrete in the blacktop. It has metal access box lid looking things evenly spaced around the edge of the circle and a large one in the middle. Anyone know that this is for? I didnít get a good picture of it, but have attached a few that Iíve found.
My initial though was a testing/programming area for the new tree, but not sure when they would have time to use the are due to Pumpkin Nights.

I was wondering about that myself.  It certainly wasn't there when it was still employee parking.  Not a clue offhand what it's for/ from
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

Seems like something with utility hookups... could be for future expansions of the Pumpkin/Christmas fest... Maybe at some point we'll see a second tree w/ light show?

That was kind of my thinking too. What are the chances that we see the old tree back there this year? Maybe the area is just open on certain days as simply a way to add more area to the park?

I am hoping that they hold the Moonlight Madness street dances in this area. That way they can be avoided by those of us who enjoy the old-school SDC charm.

Is there any chance that SDC will be cutting down trees in the square before the Christmas festival begins? When we were there last week, we noticed just how big the trees in the center of the square around where the tree will be are. In the marketing photos there aren't any trees around the new Christmas tree and it looks much more open, which I really like. I know that some would really throw a fit about them cutting down tress, but I think that it would really help with the Christmas festival and the tree show if they did remove a few of them.

I dont think there is a any chance they will remove trees from the square..  those are adult trees, they put on lots of decorations in those trees..  :-\

along with the fact they add lots of shade and back country "feel" to the ambience through the year.. :D 

I for one hope they would never do that, as well as I hope they have never even considered it.. :)

Everyone talks about the "theme" of the park..  Just think what taking those tress out would do the the initial feel  of the park, IF the square was stripped of the big trees.. :'(
