SDCís 2024 Project(s) and Park Developments
« on: November 29, 2022, 09:18:03 PM »
I thought we already had a 2024 thread but apparently not. 
Since FITH2.0 has been delayed to 2024 letís move discussion on the project to here to keep things tidy.


With that being said, the ride has gone vertical.  You might be able to see it from the firehouse if the lights inside are on.  Of course the windows are filthy so you wonít be able to get decent photos.  Can confirm that thereís supports up.  There might be some track as well, but thatís still a ďrumorĒ for now.  Weíre not sure if what looks like track is track or just a different type of support.  Remember RMC track looks like supports so itís hard to know for sure until confirmation

Glad to see you Swoosh.

2023 will definitely be interesting to see all the 2024 work everywhere and to also get "Hill Street" back. I wish they would do a HGTV parody of a makeover show with a before and after reviling. I think it would make for a pretty awesome construction blog.

Lots of support steel in the building and you can see where a bit of it has gone vertical. You can see what may be track in the background on the floor in a few photos, but no long runs of installed track could be seen.

The exterior has also continued to receive some theming additions.

*These photos were taken from inside of Fireman's Landing.

With things moving along now, I wonder if they'd give thought to having 2024 Season Pass holder previews during Old Time Christmas next season as an incentive to purchase early.

That would be great!

Was at the city yesterday and got a quick picture of the continued progress on the facade for FITH2.


Assuming that itís lit like the rest of firemanís landing for OTC itís going to look amazing during OTC.

I never did get to go back there on my most recent visit since I was herding kids, but I'm told there's obviously a lot of work going on inside now. I really wonder if they could have gotten this open for 2023... Since things were obviously delayed I had thought construction would have slowed or stopped until the summer or so. I have a feeling it will sit 90-somethingish completed for 9 months, like the last few big rides. They are probably still waiting on certain components anyway.

Our view of the inside of the building has now been blocked off.

With the track manufacturer for this new coaster being rmc, what if for elements of the ride could be sub contracted to a company like intamin. They have done work for these types of rides all over the place ( both major Harry Potter coasters at universal Orlando) I am also wondering if the installer for it could be some 3d party company, with Swiss Ride Services being very likely. With sdc doing a lot of work with them recently such as time traveler and mystic river falls. If sdc does use any of these companyís I feel like this ride could be very different then we imagine.

RMC is supplying the ride components.  The park is building the attraction
