In Miss Mary's day, we called those "trees". ;)

No offense, but Miss Mary has been gone for decades
Itís time to retire that statement. Itís old, tired, and irrelevant.

Thanks for the updates again!

Looks very FITH-like inside so far. Nothing too crazy yet, which is good IMO.

Don't worry, the concept has been retired and replaced with the new, tiresome, and irrelevant to the 1880s theme.

Track in view from Firemanís Landing.
They are also pouring more concrete in the plaza area outside the ride entrance.

It would really help if they would clean these windows. 🤣

Glad to see they are adding some window treatments to the rest of the building, I wonder if they'll ultimately let vegetation overtake the building like FITH 1.0? I would think the pumpkin plaza shipping containers would eventually be replaced with something on the side of the new building, but then again....those containers have been working fine.

Any reason to believe a formal announcement is coming this week for FITH 2.0? SDC Facebook feed has already alluded to "so much exciting news" coming this week.

They announced the opening of Fried Fancies yesterday, and just dropped a playful, but cryptic nod to FITH with an all red picture and, "I aint got no pants no more. The dang baldknobbers stole 'em" just this morning.

I don't expect so. They have often said they have BIG news coming, only for it to be something we consider trivial. BIG news has a lot of room for interpretation I guess. This news is probably related to the new food stands opening up and the furniture factory getting underway, but could also be about something coming later this year for one of the festivals. There is no good reason for them to announce the new FITH until august when people start thinking about vacations for next year and other parks are making announcements. If they announce too soon, people are encouraged to skip SDC this year and focus on WOF or wherever instead.

Double posting because I've just seen the announcement myself. The fact that it's a photo of mystic river with the 'i' in BIG turned into a '1' is interesting. Maybe they want to try for another Guinness world record this summer? Or maybe it has something to do with mystic? That ride has been causing all kinds of problems...

Part of me expects they want to find a way to rework it without admitting it is a disaster. Seems like they wouldn't do that at the start of summer though. It's made it this long.

^ As was speculated on the Facebook site it probably means they were voted the #1 theme park.
