The SDC website shows Spring Break from March 9th - 24th but it shows the new Fire District (including FITH) opening March 16th.

^^Yup, that seems to be exactly the case. By now you'd hope they have had plenty of time to get everything working, but who knows these days. It's only been under construction for three years. I am sure they will announce things regarding the grand opening closer to the actual date. They may have it soft open on March 9-15 for whatever early spring break crowds are around. I remember riding PK before the actual grand opening.

It does indeed look great. They have kept very true to the character of the old ride. Now they need to add more of this type of theming back around the park where it has disappeared over the years. Now we know they can still do it!

I would think they'd open FITH the same day the festival starts.  If not they will have to face the "Facebook wrath" of highly disappointed visitors.  Unless they make it clear that the ride won't, or at least probably won't, be open the first week of the Spring Break festival.

It says March 16, 2022. That was the opening day for the 2022 season.

The other rides in the District that have ride pages show them opening on the 9th with the rest of the park.

Looks like the mural in the original Fire in the Hole has been saved. More info will be shared next Wednesday.

Yup, I remember them promising to save the mural somehow. Hope it ends up in the new queue line.

There have also been photos posted to FB showing them taking down the final portrait of the guy with his foot hanging out of the frame. Hope that finds a similar spot on the new ride too. Very odd seeing it look so barren inside now.

Did we really doubt that stuff would be saved?  At the very least, it saves them some money on new theming in the queue.

Mobile food ordering is coming to the City this season. Sadie's Pretzel Cafe is the only confirmed location so far, but it will be available at multiple locations.

Hopefully this significantly helps with the lines....

^^ Where is Sadie's Pretzel Cafe located?  It's not listed under Dining on the SDC website.

Itís the new building on the hill between Firemanís Landing and the trail that is open during Pumpkin Night. Across the walkway from Boatworks TheaterÖ where the Tastes of the City was originally.
