The wider horse bridge looks good.

From their walkthrough video, it also looks like a new small entertainment area is on the hillside behind cokes and floats.

Does it still have the sound effects and that little window/building thing at the beginning of it with the sign of what different types of traveling costs?

Yes there is some sort of stage area back behind the float place. And no, no sound effects on the bridge.

Fire in the Hole and Flooded Mine both looked better than in the past. Almost everything seemed to be working in the Flooded Mine.
Cinnamon bread was good as always. The lemon blueberry cookies were also great. However, our new favorite thing in the park was the new cinnamon bread bread pudding at the Smokehouse. It was amazing. The other food was also good there. The portions were a great size. My wife and I split the 2 meat meal and it was plenty.
Overall a great first day.

I did not go into the new rib house because the line was out the door.  From what I could see of the menu board it looked like they were serving a limited menu.

Brad Thomas released another Teaser Photo of MRF over on Twitter, looks like the lift might be done or very close to being. https://twitter.com/BradThomasMO/status/1271543126931406849?s=20



Excellent! I was worried the parts may have been held up in Europe. Perhaps it will open next month after all?

Is the elevator lift supposed to have a building or covering over/around it?

I was struggling to figure out what could be missing from the elevator lift. It would be very cool if it is complete or near complete.

A conversation I had in line at Fire in the Hole was that SDC may be shooting for the end of July as a open date.

Take that for what it is. I heard it from a guest who talked to an employee.

At any rate it is better than nothing!

I can't remember if this has already been mentioned here or not, but the walkway will connect to the Fireman's Landing bathroom area from Mystic River Falls. So the walkway will go all the way around the lake area now and not be a dead end. You can see it form the train... I just didn't have my phone out to get a picture.

From what I could tell it sure looked like the entire lift structure was complete, but I cant say for certain.

This video shows the elevator working and testing of rafts. I wasnít expecting quite the spin that it gets going before it gets to the drop. It spins more than Time Traveler. 🤣 Maybe it wonít spin so much in the end with more weight.

Today was a good day at the park despite the reduced ride capacity and masks, which I didnít personally find to be too bad. Lines were mostly short. I managed to get the following footage of MRF being tested, and as I was filming, Terry Wayne Sanders (dressed as the undertaker) walked by, noticed me filming, and confirmed that the ride should be opening in about three weeks. Hereís the link to the video I compiled for anyone interested. Considering this is my first post here, I hope Iíve made it a good one thatís worth your time.  :)
