If the voices are the only thing that is "bad" about the ride, then I think it'll be a great success for those young and old, even with heavy rose-tinted glasses.

The old tracks were still there as of December 2021, when I got the experience of walking through the ride in the pitch black. (Creepy as hell). The scenes were gone from what I could tell, but there was still the track.

I'm assuming that this will be the tunnel that the train is in. I hope that it moves forward in the tunnel toward the track to make it more dynamic.

From what I was told back in winter of 2021 is that it will indeed move forward as you go towards it. I don't think they would change something like that between then and now, but you never know

While I know its just concept art, I love how the train scene includes one of the FSDL locomotives, it just ties everything together. This truly feels like a love letter to the original ride while modernizing it.

Looks like somebody took some photos they weren't allowed to take, as they were promptly removed from the Facebook group page

I wish I had enough free time to complain about the direction of branches on a theme park logo

Not sure if anybody else has noticed, but at the bottom of Wildfire there seem to be new retaining walls and gravel put down. Iíll have to get a picture next time, but Iíd assume itís just to make maintenance easier since itíll be level ground at certain places

Itís barely been 80 for the last 3 weeks. Extreme heat didnít cause this.

Track warp can happen at 80 degrees.

ď The incident happened around 4 p.m. Officials say the front wheels of car three on the train went off the track by about two inches. It caused cars two and three to separate. Park officials say new safety protocols worked as designed, stopping the train. It also kept all of the remaining cars upright.Ē

So track warp happened due to the extreme heat from the past few days, caused a truck to fall and everything worked upright? Why is this newsworthy?

It decoupled and stopped at the bottom of the hill, I wouldnít call that a ďderailmentĒ.

If you really think the news on Friday is about FiTH 2.0, then get ready to be disappointed. You should save your straw-grasping theories for later in the year, say August/September

Seems like they donít know the actual cause and are just throwing out possible causes.

Everything changes. There is no future otherwise.

SDC has never been about the future:  it is--or has been--explicitly about the past. 

I would be perfectly satisfied--nay, delighted!--with the SDC of 1970, prior to ALL of the coasters.
SDC wouldnít even be here today if they never changed. Theyíre a business, just because their theme is about the past doesnít mean that they have to be stuck in the past with business.

I guess that makes sense. I assumed that the cameras were more of a turnkey rental program and not necessarily an outright purchase.
Itís more like a lease through Kodak. They provide all the equipment (ride cameras, photo cameras, computers, servers, screens, etc) and their tech support. Iím not sure how much SDC pays for it when they went in-house, but Iíd assume that amount would increase for each on-ride location they add. They planned doing the same thing for Mystic River, as in a photo-op location like TT, but COVID ruined both that idea and TTís photo-op.

Can confirm that it will be a photo op and not on-ride. No use in spending so much $$$ on a new camera, building, computers and servers for a farewell season. The new FiTH will have one on-ride.
