Clarification Questions?

Are they planning a loop from fireman's landing around the lake to Wilsons farm?  Not sure where the building is there planning.  if they loop over the train maintenance buildings that would open up so new land.....and possible backgate like place for resort/hotel off 76. 

Plus a loop from Wilsons Farm to Opry House? 

Is the new Building behind the Landings Restooms/Flyer....across the tracks I assume in the current 'backlot'....or is is behind the exposition hall....behind firefall?

Only new loop would be Western area to Opry House.  The only loop that FL will see is around Lake Silver when that pathway is open. 

FITH 2.0 is in Shadís parking lot which is directly across the tracks from the kiddie drop tower and parallel to the Firehouse Playhouse.

Yes, it's by far the popular rumor with plenty of signs pointing to it. We are talking about it more in the 2023 thread.



Yeah.....I didn't see that convo till after I posted in here.

FM and the train station really don't take that much space.  I know FM is bigger that is seems but Fith building is larger than the train station and FM together.  I love to sneak in an HQ office somewhere to see these possible long-term ideas...lol

I would agree in the speculation that FM will end up being a complete deconstruction and new attraction.  I can't imagine them being able to 'modernize' it without a complete rebuild.  Enjoy while you can.

The Riverside Playhouse would be removed as well and the new Mystery Mine type coaster will go over the train tracks into that area.

Youíre thinking of it as a dead end.  Itíll be a new loop.  Better guest flow
Another corkscrew?  Or a pedestrian tunnel?  Wouldn't seem like they would want to man another crossing.

Think of what they do at Dollywood.  The crossing would be right next to the station so that the attendants there could do both

^You have to consider there will actually be two crossover sites, not just the one. The first one will be located as mentioned above connecting the old FITH area with OR and Wilsons Farm and another will be over behind Firemans Landing where the FITH replacement will be built. I highly doubt they would reroute the railroad tracks. I would expect a walkway bridge over them building a tunnel unless they are willing to spend the extra $$$ on infrastructure and earth work to accommodate one.

The entrance to the new FITH will be go under the track.  The track is already above grade at that location

I have been following SDCfans for some time, but just registered today.  I was at SDC last week, but wasn't able to see any of the development.  I did get a facebook message from SDC showing a 2022 in the background and a baldnobber quote from FITH in the middle.  Would this mean that the replacement might open later this year?  In looking at where the current FITH is now and the condition of the Saloon, I think building a new Saloon where the current FITH is would be a better move than putting a new train station there.  The current Saloon could then be replaced with a new train station.  This would allow a much bigger Saloon that is fully disability compliant and much more room.  There might have to be some re-grading done to the train track if it needs to be level at the train station, but I think there would be room for that.

2022 refers to the farewell season for the current version

Saloon is staying put

Current plan is to put new station where FITH is currently.  It will also help connect Westward area and Opera House

Letís not forget that Kentucky Kingdom and Wild Adventures both serve alcohol.  These are Herschend parks.  Their aquariums have wine mixers.  So this is inevitable.  Itís money being left on the table.

I honestly don't see alcohol ever being served based off the company's (Herschend family's) version of morality/religion. And I would bet that a good portion of the old timers would stop going if alcohol was served for the same reason...

BUT... I could see a lot of "none of the aboves" religion wise really flocking to a beer and wine type festival... queue the BBQ/Bluegrass and brews festival and you'd have something... Although a good portion of the bluegrass musicians might not want anything to do with that for the same reasons as above

What religion/morality are you talking about? Catholics are all about alcohol.  Baptists are right there with them.  I think weíre way past the stigma/dogma of alcohol is bad.  And itís not like people are going to get ####-faced drunk at these festivals

^ I agree that there should be no alcohol at the park.  SDC is a great place to take your family.  There are plenty of other places (including some theme parks) where you can get alcohol.

You realize prohibition is over, right?  Literally all parks have alcohol now (even Disney).

It would be nice if they use a large structure to block the view of the outside world from inside the City.

You mean the show building for the new ride?

Question.....ironic as though it may be...

Did this fire delay Fire in the Hole's demise for another year? (I keep hearing rumors this is or at least was the last year)

Hmmm conspiracies everywhere. lol ::)

No. FITH 2.0 is still a go for 2023.  Youíll just have something new for 2022 now actually in the ĎCity.

Thereís already an alternate route that goes past the knife shop.  No need to change the grade of Hill Street

The area is clear now down to foundations.  They did keep the shed closest to Wildfire sign.  Everything else is gone.  Sounds like they are trying to save Cowboy Jepps
