Perhaps, but perhaps more people are paying attention to it now.  You can bet the people who are upset are going to pay close attention to what replaces their beloved GG.  It's even on the front pages of Branson newspapers and it's a story on the local news.  I think we'll chalk it up to a stunt, because they're pretty sure they can replace it with a better experience and achieve a better look on the lake.

But we really need some firehouse chili in the area, SDC!

Regarding 2015... should we do the big one or the little one first?

Uhhhhh!!!  I wish it was the 13th already.  I am currently working on a photo update from today and it is KILLING ME not saying what each of the different foundations are for.  I am finding it almost impossible to do the captions for these photos without just giving it away.

So today was Geyser Gulch's last day... I know most of us have never been fond of it, but I sure felt the memories flood back when I suddenly remembered that it was closing today.

Regarding 2015... should we do the big one or the little one first?  

Didn't we agree not to do the vague "I think I know something" posts anymore? This doesn't add much to the discussion.


I'm looking forward to the construction photos though. Time to put in some final speculation before the announcement. Only ten days!

It's exciting to have a secret and give hints.  I understand where you're coming from.  As long as the new area is not too garish and has a cleanly executed theme, I'll be OK with it.

Now, back to this "little one/big one" remark...

To be honest, the hint wasn't vague at all and refers to two specific attractions coming to the new area.  When the ride list is announced it will be pretty clear.

Swoosh, now that you know the ride list for the area....are you more excited for the announcement, or has your concern for the new area grown?

^^I figured that part out, but you asked if we should do first, so I thought there was more to come.  Let's get those MiG pics out there.

It's not so much what rides are going to be in there that concerns me, it's the execution of the theme on said rides.  I'll be just as "surprised" when all of that is announced on the 13th.

Let's see...a large ride, a small ride, and a fence to block a third ride, which sounds like something unexpected.  We'll assume this is in addition to a possible new play area to accommodate the loss of GG.

Is the shot tower a large of small ride?  I always thought it was a miniature version of the ride, but I'm guessing this is the "large" ride near the entrance.

I don't think you showed the round foundation which we have to know is for the Li'l Swings.

All of these photos are of the area behind GG.  GG itself will provide another huge amount of space to be included.

Pictures 17 & 18 are of the round foundation that you mentioned.

Off the top of my head there are at least 2 ride foundations to be made plus another "attraction" that obviously cannot be made yet because there is some demo that needs to be done.

The fence will go in to block off an area that is not going to be used for the current project.

I'm thinking 2016 Firechaser Express utilizing the remaining space plus the employee lot.
