Potential site of DW's next big thing though?

With all of the cleared land they have back near Wildwood Grove?  Not a chance.  They'll continue expanding out that way.

Wildwood Grove is open (mostly) now and seems like they did a great job on the new area. It looks to be their version of Firemanís Landing or Grand Expo. Iím most jealous of Dragonflier. It looks to be a perfect ride to fill the gap between small kiddie coasters and the bigger trill coaster as it only has a 39Ē minimum height. At SDC, kids go from the Grand Expo Coaster and FitH straight to Thunderation and Powder Keg. Having a smoother, more approachable coaster to transition would be really nice to have.
The way that they put the nets on the ride is a bit strange looking though. Apparently they didnít want to put the nets off of the ride due to cosmetic reasons of the area.

Would be interesting to see the pics of the new area..  NOT promo pics,  but real pics form real people..   Sounds like a nice area.

There was a segment on Wildwood Grove and an interview with Dolly by Jenna Bush Hager on Today with Hoda and Jenna on Monday. Most of the segment was filmed in Wildwood Grove.
