Excellant point- I have been on the new darkride bandwagon for years.

They should do something like Legoland did with their Dragon coaster.  It starts off as a dark ride through the castle and lasts for quite a while before going outside and doing some fast helices.  It would be the best of both worlds.

Lincoln Log Land would fit in with a wooden coaster.

I'm really excited for them to actually start building this thing. If it is themed very well (maybe with a cave or something like that, like Steve was saying), this will be a great addition to the park. Even if it is another water ride in an area where there are already a lot of water rides/attractions.

I'm excited to see stuff in the construction site other than wood and dirt piles.

I agree with themeparkguy.  I think they need to get busy on the new ride and show some progress to start building excitement and enthusiasm for that area and for next year. Hopefully they'll bring the Balloon ride back some where in the park for next year, my kids love that ride.

Let the advertising and build up begin. I think it will help to create some excitement which I think has been missing.

Hmmm, no announcement yet. I guess SDC does kind of hold off on their announcements till the season pass push though. Hard to believe it was over a year ago when we first saw the concept art.

Hopefully they'll make a big deal of this when they make the announcement. I'm looking forward to hearing the unique details that will make this project special.

Anyone have any updates?

I guess we'll be waiting till November to finally see this thing unveiled. It sucks being so far away that I can't tell what's going on with the project. I assume by now a certain amount of vertical construction has started, since they were so far with the station/whatever and all the earthwork during my last visit way back in July. I guess there's still time for this project to be made into a huge deal, I just have to wonder if they're holding off on the announcement because the project keeps changing or if they're waiting for all the hype from other parks to die down first, or maybe they're just going to wait for the season pass push.

Anyone going soon?

I'm so much closer than I had been, and yet I *still* feel so far away. I'm hoping to make it down sometime in October; I don't wanna miss the tribute to Missouri... Anything Mark Twain, and I'm there in an instant. LOL

If I make it down, I'll be sure to try to get pics and stuff of the ride.

Update from Saturday Oct 03
http://www.midwestinfoguide.com/silver/2009/oct03/

A new section of trough is now finished and they are laying rebar for another section.

Season passes go on sale Nov 7th, so I'd say that's when we'll hear all the details on the new ride (and maybe even more)
