Look at how far animatronics have come. That new small park in Iowa is getting these for their dark ride... SDC could easily afford a few of these bad boys.

If and when they redo American Plunge. And... I truly hope they keep a flume style ride. They need to add a family with it.

I have said it before but said it again.

Here is a pic I took from 2019 from Europa Park and it's insane landscaping doing just this

Posted some new photos on the FB page. Looks like most of the underground stuff is in place and they have leveled and compacted the area. I'll bet when we return in springtime there will be a foundation in place. Heck, they may have the walls up by then.

It would be nice if they use a large structure to block the view of the outside world from inside the City.

You mean the show building for the new ride?

Hopefully, they are using it as a duel purpose to block the view.

I saw some post on Fakebook with 2022 and a line from FITH.

It looks like they were almost or already done leveling out the land last week. They had a bunch of pipes and electrical work (understandably so) sticking out from the ground, so I wouldn't be surprised if they go vertical soon.

I have been following SDCfans for some time, but just registered today.  I was at SDC last week, but wasn't able to see any of the development.  I did get a facebook message from SDC showing a 2022 in the background and a baldnobber quote from FITH in the middle.  Would this mean that the replacement might open later this year?  In looking at where the current FITH is now and the condition of the Saloon, I think building a new Saloon where the current FITH is would be a better move than putting a new train station there.  The current Saloon could then be replaced with a new train station.  This would allow a much bigger Saloon that is fully disability compliant and much more room.  There might have to be some re-grading done to the train track if it needs to be level at the train station, but I think there would be room for that.

Putting the station where the Saloon is would require putting the boarding on the second floor; difficult to do and be ADA compliant.  As for re-grading the right-of-way to bring the track to street level there:  ain't gonna happen.  Far too much dirt moving.  The engines have pretty much all they can do to manage the grade already in place.  Trying to put the station there at street level would require grades more appropriate for Outlaw Run    :o

2022 refers to the farewell season for the current version

Saloon is staying put

Current plan is to put new station where FITH is currently.  It will also help connect Westward area and Opera House

You know, there are already tons of people in that area by FITH, it would seem like putting the train station there would make matters much worse.  You would have the tons of people that would be there already combined with the tons of people that would normally be over by the train station area.

Youíre thinking of it as a dead end.  Itíll be a new loop.  Better guest flow
