The queue line goes on the ride side of the station and then back into a queue house which is housed in the facade building that the final drop goes through before coming back to the station.

Queueing next to a major drop is great for building rider excitement.

Swoosh looking through your photos I'm going to guess that the "mystery building" is a Dryer/locker building. The left side with the drain pipe is for the dryer and the right side that is finished is for the lockers.

Huge difference.  The latter two are often found in cities, while a town has its own local government (as does a city).  Cities and towns may be adjacent to one another, but are not a part of each other.
Nope! For instance, in the city of St. Louis there is Dutch Town, the mostly German area. Also Dog Town, known as the Irish area. (There's an interesting story behind the Dog Town name that has nothing to do with ethnicity)
The old, historic area in the city of Florissant Missouri is officially called "Old Town". Big cities don't have areas called downcity do they? Or maybe Uptown Cafe in Branson should be Upcity Cafe because it is within the city limits of Branson.
So, within a "city" there certainly can be distinct areas referred to as "town"

Without being too redundant on other posts being made, here is an update on the construction of Mystic River Falls at SDC from my recent visit this week.

WATCH VIDEO HERE:
https://youtu.be/fPgoBsDByK4

The loading station under construction.





Work continues on the pumphouse/lift/drop area.







Canal landscaping work continues. Note the addition of trees, shrubbery, and detailed rockwork.







The new Ribhouse is coming along nicely.





Lake Silver has been drained for the winter season.






It will be great to see how all this will look when the ride opens next spring. Loving the landscaping work being done.

Got to see it all up close at the ACE coaster Christmas walk back today. It really looks incredible with the authentic rock work everywhere. The new ribhouse will be nice and cozy and it interacts a lot with the new ride through. They are still pouring concrete at the base of the tower and may not even start on the steelwork until after the season ends.

They also dropped the news that the old white river mercantile building will become a cinnamon bread bakery. I guess that building will be safe for the future.

What!!!!  This is the biggest news of all!!!!   Cinnamon bread is moving?????

The Mill can be a tough place to get in and out of.  As long as it tastes the same....guess my first stop in SDC will take a few steps longer.

But that also means no cinnamon bread before the official park opening -- will have to wait for the chains to drop.

I'm pretty sure if the bread sells up front, they will have them at both locations.

Unless it has changed in the last 10 minutes, all baked items currently at the Mill will now be at this new location

I take that to mean sales at The Mill are not great.

From the outside looking in, it seems that the Mill has actually gotten TOO popular over the past couple years. There were rumors that they were looking at expanding it somehow, even taking over the candle shop to do so. The mill was never built to handle the number of people coming through to get cinnamon bread. At times there have been lines of 30+ minutes or more.

We'll see where things land in spring, but I was told that the mill would still have a few baked things, and they would still have some bread making going on there. I think the milling should be more featured though - so many people fail to realize that it is a real mill!

Silly me.  I was thinking of The Mill Restaurant during this conversation, and not Sullivan's Mill.  But yes, the milling has gone by the wayside through the years and the bread sales have taken over the facility.  I'm all for moving the more commercial stuff out of there to the new Rivertown.  I had wondered why these guys were getting their cinnamon bread at the restaurant, figuring that was a pretty stupid location for it.
