People are still mad about Lost River...

That’s me! Not mad, but very sad I didn’t get a chance to ride Lost River one last time.
We made a trip last year even though we weren’t planning to go in 2022 because I was afraid FITH would close without an announcement.

sdcattractions Instagram post just says:

2.13

So what do you think? Will this be when the tomatoes are revealed?

I do not think it is 2.13.  The 1 is actually a capital I with a different font 3 at the end.

It actually is a 1. It’s in Big Caslon font.

Hmmm, some are going to speculate that it's somehow related to FITH. I could see them making a half announcement - letting people know that FITH is in its final year and teasing the next thing. They wouldn't want to announce the new ride too early since that may encourage people holding off until next year to visit. The recent closure of Splash Mountain and the public's reaction to that may have shifted their strategy to closing FITH. They must know people would be mad if it closed suddenly without warning at the end of the year even with a "replacement" on the way. People are still mad about Lost River...

But I agree it's probably something smaller. Either a food stand or a summer event most likely.

Any chance of a new show in Red Gold?  Probably not if they didn't market it during the season-pass-selling frenzy. 

Odds are it's the new "food court" area along with the furnishings store.

Latest tease from SDC Facebook.

This makes me think maybe it is FITH2.0 announcement and it will open this summer.
Playing around with the background from this tease, it could be a blurred and adjusted photo of FITH, it could be something else, but with just a quick look at it it could be the entrance…

Hmm, yeah the "historic" could mean it's something big. Could also be anything since it's an 1880's theme park, lol. I seem to recall them hyping up a big announcement a few years ago that was a dud, but who knows. It would be a weird time to announce a new ride or even hint at one, but again if they want to let people know it's the last season...

Wonder if there's any chance it has to do with the resort/new property. Now THAT would be a historic announcement.

Pretty much confirmed its the FITH farewell announcement. I commented RIP FITH and for people to get their final rides in this season. SDC "heart" reacted to it.

The James/Younger gang committed their first bank robbery on February 13th, 1866 in Liberty Missouri.  Could the date have something to do with that?  And if not then at least I threw in some Missouri History.  You're welcome History Buff!   :)

They are announcing that they are bringing back It's a Wonderful Life and the original music from the Christmas Carol, I hope.

Yeah that seems pretty much like a confirmation, in the past they’ve seemed to ignore any FITH2 comments or play dumb.



If it was tied to the bank robbery what would it be a bank robbery ride? A show? Bringing back the shootout on the street?

If only!  There are so many blown opportunities to educate.

Don't forget the canned tomato clue...or was that a red herring?

^ ^^Though the history and date I posted are true that was kind of tongue-in-cheek.  I just found it interesting since Jesse James, Cole Younger and the bunch were Missouri boys.

I've hurt my eyes trying to figure out the blurred background! lol
There is definitely some blue on the left....which still leaves me scratching my head.


I'm hopeful it's the FITH announcement as that is the most anticipated.
You have a great past just ahead of you.

I wouldn’t read too much into them reacting to a comment. They react to most comments.

The tomato post specifically said that it was something that they were working on for the summer.
