I wonít comment on aesthetics of the new bridge, but weíll say that the new one is concrete

Thatís not the only new bridge for this year

Hmm, well the only other two bridges that come to mind are the railroad bridge next to Hugo's road and the swinging bridge. I haven't been there in over a year due to school, so my memory may be fuzzy.

lets see, technically I can think of at least 3 more... 

there is a bridge by leather and knife shop area, going across the "stream", which is actually drainage from rain water,,

Also 1 bridge to overlook the downhill run at AP.

Then the bridge(s) that are part of the Queue line for WF & AP.

Apparently the other new bridge is replacing the wooden bridge between AP and WF

The park released photos of items available at the new Smokehouse today on Facebook

Good Lord.

Why not just cut down all the trees, level the hills, and pave everything? That would make expansion a lot easier, right?

I know you were being sarcastic - but unfortunately, I have to report that a lot of mature trees have been removed around the park.  Sorry.  I personally donít know the scope of the removal, just that it happened

Hopefully it was just for safety reasons. The trees were dying or dropping limbs. I cannot see any other reason for the park to do this.

They probably will still deny there is even a rough section that needs to be fixed.

I am gonna take a wild guess since they are redoing the pathway/bridge heading to WF and got rid of a bunch of trees that they removed the waterfall feature and leveled the surrounding area.

You mean the one behind Lumbercamp?? I sure hope that they didn't remove the waterfall feature, that was one of my favorite places to just relax and listen to.
