Brazen.  Not a word you see every day.

Depends on what you read.  ;D

Is that too brazen of me?

I frequently have to remind people that despite their homophonic nature, "braised" and "brazed" are quite different, and braised meat is cooked low and slow in liquid, not seared over high heat; and brazing is a method of joining two pieces of metal together.

Another Teaser on the Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/sdcattractions/photos/a.68684542602/10157398654342603/?type=3&theater



A Brazen Expedition is coming... SilverDollarCity.com/Expedition20
#LostCaverns

The lady holding the parasol is Miriam Lynch. The caption of the photo I found doesn't mention the names of the other three ladies in the photo, simply referring to them as guests at Marvel Cave Lodge. Photo came from the Silver Dollar City Archives.

If you look at the last teaser photo, it says "corkscrew"; which doesn't really fit with the other stuff on the map.

It looks like there might be a bridge where the channel goes over another portion of the channel. Could there be a downward corkscrew type element in the new ride?

Large pumps have been added to the large holes on the eastern edge of the construction area.

Could the area in the foreground of the last photo (area with the ladder in it) possible the the station?

That is consistent with Infinity Falls which has a long decline over another channel.  Also, there appears to be a corkscrew element to the "elevator" lift feature on Infinity Falls - not that the ride corkscrews, but that the corkscrew lifts the vehicle.  Maybe somebody who knows better can confirm.

I had seen another video that seemed to show the lift mechanism better.  It seems there is a "drill bit" looking rod in the center of the mechanism on the left of the lift.

Not that that's what the map is referring to:  the map says "Cloudland Corkscrew".  Cloudland is one of the features in Marvel Cave.  I've not heard of it as "Corkscrew", but that doesn't mean it wasn't called that.  I'm too lazy to pull out the book to look it up right now.

Just noticed that google earth has been updated to March 2019. Seeing an overhead of the area really shows how huge it is.

Even more interesting is the massive new parking lot to the north. New employee parking lot? Definitely a lot of land work going on around the area with the new pumpkin area, lot 3 expansion, expansion of the maintenance area, and now that.

That updated image also appears to show the old rafts stored just off the maintenance access road just south of the Dollar General. If I remember correctly, Swoosh had posted photos of those taken through the trees from 76.

Is that what all those grey/black rectangles are?

Also, do you know what those two long buildings are that are just north of OR? They look pretty big but they are kind of out on their own at the end of the service road.

Are you talking about all the crafter sheds?  No those are the not slide pieces. The slide pieces are on the side of the hill in the trees.  Those long buildings that kind of look like an L are apartments

Ahh, those are crafter sheds. That makes more sense looking at them now.
