Wow that is some amazing test footage. That spot where looking at the main drop head on might just end up being my new favorite spot in the park haha. Also, if what that emplyee said is true, it'll be open by the time i end up going down there :)

This video shows the elevator working and testing of rafts. I wasnít expecting quite the spin that it gets going before it gets to the drop. It spins more than Time Traveler. 🤣 Maybe it wonít spin so much in the end with more weight.

Those crayon colors!  Yikes!

Yeah the color palette is jarring. I had seen that SirWillow also mentioned in his trip report video that they were playing Southern Jazz music around the BBQ place which was a bit off putting for SDC's atmosphere and for the restaurant. I'd kinda have to agree with that. It seems like they are going for a New Orleans theme for the area but that in itself would only make sense if they plan to expand the menu with actual cajun gumbo and seafood options. (Unless this is what they are hinting at eventually adding with the Rivertown theme?)

Whoever is in charge of picking out the music in the City these days needs to find a new gig.

Lots of Mystic River Falls testing happening today. It was much more consistent and continual like normal operations than what we saw earlier.

Videos of rotating lift, raft in channel, approach to the drop and the drop.

Looks like they got that spinning on the elevated channel under control. Thats awesome to see!
