^ Well HB if SDC won't hire you as an official historian maybe they can at least find you a job in their schoolhouse!

^ ^AP guarantees to get you wet with generally a short line.  I think of AP as Charlie Brown's Christmas tree:  "I never thought it was a bad ride.  It just needs a little love."  :)

^ Agree.  It was the book Shepherd of the Hills and Marvel Cave that brought the area to prominence in the first place.

I would not be surprised if they use this to also replace AP.  I never thought about it before but yet, the building should have been a cave.  Oh well, still looks fun.

AP won’t be replaced anytime soon

Good to hear.  Though I agree it needs some upgrading it would be foolish to replace 2 water rides with 1 new one.  By keeping the American Plunge after adding MRF will help keep the waiting time down on both rides.

Even Jurassic Park had problems with some of their attractions when they opened.  I think we can accept that there will be a learning curve.

At least when Mystic River Falls fails the boats don't start eating the tourists.

^ There are posts from guests on SDC's Facebook page that they were invited to ride yesterday.  I know that doesn't make it official but still...

^ Our last visit was in 2017.  We try to make it there every 5 years or so.  If I lived closer I'd visit more!

^ Well yeehaw, HB!  That's my second favorite spot to visit next to SDC!

Wow!  That is a very impressive list HB!  I would add the old fashioned ice cream making at Hannah's Ice Cream Parlor and the old player piano they had in there with Piano Pete.

At least they did give the restroom safety signs a frontier look.  My Stetson is off to them for that.

Just remember any new Dark Ride will likely come at the expense of FITH and FM.

I beg to differ, sir.  The PTB are very aware of how crowded those 2 rides are during inclement weather.  I see a new dark ride (or at least indoor ride) would be an addition and not a replacement.  Fingers crossed anyway.

I'm hoping July 9th or 10th since that's when we're scheduled to go  :D

I hoping their next NEW projects (after some tender loving care to the classics, that is) is a family friendly, non-spinning, non-looping coaster and an indoor ride- needed desperately.

I think it was Voltaire who said: "Those that ignore history are doomed to repeat it".

The sound has returned to the bridge.

They really need to put the sign back up telling how the bridge collapsed, in February 1887 I think, as a posse was chasing Baldknobbers and if you listen closely you can still hear the posse's horses.  That way newbies would know why they hear the sound of horses crossing the bridge.  That sign would be very easy to do again if they don't have the original.
