Can I cry now?

No, seriously. Reading that RiverBlast site, with all the Tom & Huck themed stuff--whitewash fence, Jackson's Island, the lot--it seriously makes me want to cry from the giddiness I feel bubbling up inside me.

With this renewal of the Tom Sawyer theme, I wonder if eventually they'll have face characters walking around the area...? That would be a dream come true!

^I know what you mean.  Just when I thought SDC was slipping a little on theme, they come up with an attraction like this!  If you're there opening day or through that weekend (March 18-21), I wouldn't be surprised if there were some face characters out and about. :)

All I know is it's my dream to one day play Becky Thatcher at SDC. :)

I am SO gonna be there opening day, and will be there Saturday, May 1st as well. I'd skip class April 30th, but it seems their main 50th celebration stuff will be that Saturday on the actual anniversary, so I will be a good girl and not skip, especially that close to the end of the semester.

I need to get my season pass ordered. I am going to MAKE myself able to go at least three times next year, if not more. I finally figured out I don't have to take a class over the summer, so I can get a summer job to supplement the money I'll have left over from student loans.

On that note, it appears that to get your 50th Anniversary Christmas ornament, you only have to visit five times.  In the past, you've had to attend during festivals, but it doesn't look like that's a requirement for our 2010 visits.  Has that rule changed in recent years and I just missed it?

Hmmm... Didn't notice that wording upon first reading... I wonder if that is indeed what it means. That'd be really awesome!

^^No, I think that's a new change.

I'll probably be there to get some photos over Thanksgiving weekend. Hopefully I won't encounter that lady.

Yeah though, we'd all love some photos, so if anyone's planning a trip...

We'll be there on Black Friday.  There's no need for us to go shopping on that day so we go to the park.  ;D

I started a set of the progress of Tom & Huck's River Blast on flicker, including pictures from yesterday, Nov. 14th.  Enjoy!

I like the station.

I also like how it looks like the edge of the pond will be back farther from the path than I had previously thought. So people won't be getting wet back there at the pathway, but what about the water cannons? Maybe they haven't gotten to it yet, but I don't see how they'll be able to add the water cannons to the old fort and have them be able to reach the ride. I guess they're working from the back to the front though, so we'll see what pops up.

Looks like we have some real fake rockwork popping up on the hill side.  GOOD!  I was afraid they were going to leave the cement walls as is that hold back the dirt to prevent erosion
