On the season pass holder group, the SDC account confirmed some interesting info about the Pumpkins/Festival plaza and the connection to the new FITH. They said that eventually that path will indeed be open for use, and that something special is planned for that back area that will be announced at a later date. Sounds like that will be redeveloped in the near future to blend into the rest of the park and probably be open year round. I assume they'll still want it for event usage, so it's not like they plop a big ride down over it, but they could certainly add a restaurant, bathrooms, or something back there to connect things better and make it feel like less of a backlot.

They could put up s sign at the entrance:

“Be aware that the illusion of Silver Dollar City’s theme will be shattered when you cross this threshold. ”

I get that a special events and catering group pavilion is needed though.

Not quite a pavilion, but they are using the plaza area during YCW for Party on the Plaza. It will be where groups go for the preordered box lunches. There will be a DJ and what sounds like the oversized games from the Summer Celebration.

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.

They have never once said it’ll be open on Opening Day, only that it will be open Spring 2024

I’d look for a March 30th Opening if I was a betting man

I'm still curious if they'll have a soft opening like they've done in the past. I'd think it's highly likely, but definitely not something you could count on. I guess we'll see if anyone gets lucky on opening weekend. They might still be rushing to put the finishing touches in.

Has there been any rumors of projection in the ride? This about digital displays from the press release seemed like new info; "The coaster is housed in a five-story, climate-controlled building and features 14 immersive scenes with state-of-the-art technology, including onboard audio and enhanced digital displays."

I guess I did kind of assume that there would be projection in it after they posted about filming for the final scene of the ride where all of the townspeople are celebrating.

There will also be commemorative "First Recruit" stickers given out.

Also:  “That heroism is brought to life in an exciting new way, pulling riders into the action with special details that make each ride a different experience.”  I’m going to assume that projections may run for longer than the rider sees them, so you have to ride again to see different sections of the projection sequence - sort of like you never quite hear the rest of the Red Flanders dialogue because the car is going too fast.

And one must have a minimum of one natural leg.

(No mention of a maximum)

Complainants won't have a leg to stand on.
