Probably a new food stand or re-opening Percy's with a new concept or something. I do like the label too. They are really good with the graphic designs these days when they take the time. They've come a long way since the days of "bleeding cowboys" fonts that crept in when they started switching over to digital printed signs.

Or take it back the Mary's Spring House days of the pasta, etc. - prior to the "Chipotle, Qdoba, etc.) style.

That was always our go to place to eat.

We miss the spaghetti in a bread bowl

I'd love to have them bring back the old Mary's Spring House restaurant. I liked eating there. I ate at the "Mexican" place once after it opened and found it to be nothing special and maybe a mark above Taco Bell at best and not really worth the money. But of course I am a Mexican food snob to begin with. lol

I miss Percy’s, it’s not the greatest Mexican food, but it was decent and for me it was actually a pretty good value. We could get two entrees and feed 2 adults and 2 kids.

As far as the tomatoes, since they said coming in the summer, I was thinking a show or kids activity… maybe a 1800s version of Nickelodeon slime games? I could be thinking incorrectly but I thought Flossie’s fried replacement restaurant was supposed to be open at the beginning of the season.

My immediate thought was Red Gold Heritage Hall.

Close, but not sure they are exact.  I thought the same thing.

The worst for me was the "Baldknobber Camp. Ya'll Keep Out" sign on Fire in the Hole. Ugh. Looks like it was made on a Cricut.

Why in the world would a secret vigilante group put up a sign to identify their hiding place anyway?

I figured it was the Veggie Tales coming back i.e. Bob the Tomato  ;) They were at SDC around 2000 - 2003 or so

They've canned Bob!!!

Remember this billboard on 65N before Springfield exits?

sdcattractions Instagram post just says:

2.13

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

That’s what I’m thinking.

Maybe it’s a name for the new fried fancies… or they are adding fried green tomatoes to the menu.

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.
