As much as I hate to admit it, AP needs to be ripped out and completely replaced.

And you know that will probably happen after the new attraction is open,

What will fit in the footprint? about anything they want to...

Yeah I have long suspected that AP will give way to become part of the land used for the next major coaster to go in between PK and WF and bridge together the two dead ends on that side of the park.

EDIT: Of course they could also build a larger flume ride in that general area that extends down into the valley between the aforementioned coasters.

Instead of tearing out old classic rides, do they not have enough land that they could add new coasters or rides beyond the current footprint of the park?

Has nothing to do with lack of land and more to do with the lack of adequate upkeep back in the day finally catching up with them.

I have no emotional connection with AP....I'd love them to repurpose that area and create a new water ride.

But as they would say at the office "what an opportunity"  A family driven boat ride with a controlled splash for seasonal changes. Great theming indoor elements and a splash

Photos from Wednesday 11.21
New "land bridge" has been constructed over the canal of Lost River
and they have begun moving dirt and more in the queue area.

Is this land bridge in the same place where a "temporary" or "portable" bridge is normally placed for maintenance?
