I am past the point in my life that i need to get wet LOL.  I have never been on River blast and probably never will. But, I also never got the feel of the Riverfront area. With that being said I am more excited about this new attraction than I was for OR and TT. And, I am a big coaster rider. I Just hope they really go with heavy theming. My favorite rides at DW in Florida are Kali and Splash Mountain because of the theming. Welll, Toy Story is pretty cool too.

I just hope SDC gets out of the clearcut mentality and invests in theming more.

I'm amazed at the level of clearing being done for this project. I also think it is very cool they are keeping parts of the old building as a reminder of the past. I expect the area will have more surprises as a reminder for LROTO similar to the BSF car on the PK building.

I'm excited for the potential of the new area, although a little concerned about the crowding this project may cause at the park in spring/summer months of 2019. Lost River was one of the busiest rides on park, and now the other rides will have to make up for its loss.

Let's just not plop another inventor in there.  Using Dugan in the name would be a nice touch though.

People are really starting to notice now. People didn't really start to pay attention until the entire lake was a construction site with a fence all the way around it, lol.

Wonder if there will be a teaser campaign/misdirections for this one like with TT? Could the Wild Mountain name be revived? An adventure theme would make obvious sense here.

Photos from the last day of the season.  Not much changed from our previous visit, but still more photos are always better than none

Also to answer your question, Shave, they let the Wild Mountain TM expire.

Will look a lot different in the next 30 days,  How are we going to get those pics?   LOL

Whatever this is going to be - and we can assume it will be a modern upgrade of LR - it would be nice to see an integrated rib house pass through similar to the Pirates of the Caribbean.

Yeah.  Iíve had a photo of that wall saying SAVE in numerous updates now.
Well, with the park closed, any photos taken right now couldnít be posted.

As of now, new Rib House will be approximately where Dockside Theatre is/was.  I donít think New LR will come over that far, but weíll just have to see

Local papers and news outlets have now picked up on it.  KY3 and Springfield News Leader have both had features on LR being gone and a lot of construction happening, so the word is definitely out now.
Quite interesting to be hearing speculation and thoughts both out and around the parks.  While the new version of LR seems to be pretty much a lock, it feels like a good bit of the overall project is still in flux.  That's not surprising though.  There were parts of FL that were still influx, including the placement of some rides, even up to a month or two before it was done.  So I'd honestly be shocked if there aren't things that change- even possibly some of the rumors on certain structures that may or may not be removed as part of it.
A lot of it is going to be wait and see until Spring.
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.

Well they were already stripping Rib House, Dockside and White River on the final day of operations so Iíd say the rumors on those are solid - though White River will be repurposed for a year.
