Coconut Cove - Now Open! (White Water)

The new Coconut Cove kiddie waterfortress is ready to open for the season.

It features smaller slides and a lot of water obstacles for the kids to play in.

Galactic Attack - Now Open! (SFSTL)

The new Galactic Attack VR overlay to Ninja is now open.  Keep in mind that it is only available on weekends and is by reservation time only.

Overall the VR is better this year, but I still feel that it takes way too long to load which really offsets the "wow" factor the VR provides.

Spinsanity Construction (SFSTL)



The marquee for Spinsanity has been installed.

The ride will have it's media day on Tuesday May 23rd.  May 24-25 will be Season Pass Holder Exclusive Preview Days and the ride will open to the public on Friday May 26th.

I guess this will be the "finished product" with regards to the old Chevy Show building's rehab.  It also appears that the queue line is set up so that it can accommodate both the haunted maze and Spinsanity's lines during Fright Fest.

 
Opening Soon! signs can be found all around the area.

They did a decent job landscaping around the area.

This should be a pretty neat looking addition at night with the amount LED lights the ride has.

Both the track and the ride carriage have LED lights.

Later on in the day, the ride was testing with employee riders.



This ride looks like it will be a great addition to the park.

Beachside BBQ Construction (SFSTL)

It looks like construction is almost complete on the new Beachside BBQ in Hurricane Harbor.  It looks like the only thing left is to add the thatch to the roof like the other buildings.

This brand new building is located in the food court area of the park.

This should help to spread out the crowds some during meal times.  Hopefully a new table area will be constructed adjacent to the building as well.

Time Traveler Construction (SDC)

Today's update is courtesy of sdcfans.  Not much has changed on the station since the last set of photos we posted earlier this week.

The big changes are actually happening around the station this time.  Here you can see some of the new support pillars that have been created.

The old ThuNderaTion queue line switchbacks have been removed and new supports for what we assume will be the queue line for the new attraction have been created.

They literally crawl all over this hill.

They are a little more noticeable closer to the bottom of the hill.

Time Traveler Construction (SDC)

Carr Excavating provided us with the first glimpse of parts for the new ride.  Here you can see what appears to be walkways for the track, presumably for the final brake run into the station.  Also if you look off to the right you can see supports have arrived as well.

Time Traveler Construction (SDC)

Photos for today's update are courtesy of Edward M.  You can see they have progressed on the topper to the station and more wood flats continue to appear on this side of the station.

The trees are making it difficult to view most of the progress now but here is another angle.

The teaser campaign is ramping up around the park.  I think it is safe to say that the Wild Mountain name is off the tables now as well.  The only one that is really still in play is Time Traveler.
