This 2023 opening is looking like it might not happen. I have not heard of any track pieces showing up or anything with the inside going on. I do not see this opening in 2023 and will be instead 2024. If any rumored stuff is true like a drop track this ride will need a good amount of testing done before opening. I believe that Time traveler started testing back in the winter of 2017.

Thank you, Mr. Kettle.

I like you.  Youíre funny.   ;D

In all honesty we cannot use what has happened in the past as an indicator on how fast this project is progressing.  The fact that the build will be indoors changes everything.  They donít have to worry about bad weather.  The footer is already in and cured.  All they have to do is install things now

I wouldnít be surprised if we see the announcement in late August/early September about the ride and FiTHís closing. At least I hope they donít pull a Lost River and take it down without announcing it for final rides.

I wouldnít be surprised if they start getting track during the fall, too. Like Swooosh said, weather wonít be a problem for installing track and scenery. They seem to be finishing up the roof so they may be waiting for that to be done

I would expect a lot of inside prep work doesn't need to wait for the exterior to be fully dried-in. Setting anchors, conduit and wiring, network cabling, air handling systems, etc. Normal building stuff, for buildings that include an indoor coaster.

There are new steel structures in the ride plaza area. They have also planted trees in the plaza.
The windows in the back of the FireHouse Play Place are quite dirty so itís getting harder to get pictures.
It didnít look like much was going on inside the building, but we were there close to dark.
The side facing Firemanís Landing also has these squares. Not sure if they are to attach theming later on or what.

Thanks for the photos!

To me it looks like framework for the new faÁade. It doesn't look like a big area back there, but they'll probably close it in with some facades to make it feel like part of the city.

Dollywood new project tease just started.  Wonder if SDC is coming soon. Maybe wait another month?

Their tease started a few weeks ago and they are making their announcement tomorrow (Friday) at 11 eastern. Looks like it will be a livestream on their Facebook page.

Iím guessing that there is some level of coordination to not have multiple Herschend parks make their big announcements too close together.

Itís incredibly odd they have done no type if teasing this late in the game! They are always teasing by now! I still have my doubts that this is for 2023 and that it may be 2024. Just seems out of character! And donít tell me im wrong ive been following this park closely since I was a small child! This is not normal! Doesnít mean itís not for next year just weird to have no mention or teasers anywhere, and historically they generally announce new rides in August sooo.
The Scariest Part Of The Ride Is The Lift Hill!

Itís very early August and Iím guessing that the old playbook changes when youíre replacing a classic.

While on the train this evening they had the closest thing to a teaser yet regarding the construction as we passed it.

The conductor mentions: "You might notice that here construction across the way from where our firemen reside... as of right now it's just a hole in the wall. As for what it's gonna be blip blip blip blip I can't say or I'd get in big trouble."

That's some pretty clever wording to allude to FITH.
