Zambezi Zinger (SDC)


The land clearing and leveling at the Zambezi Zinger site continues to grow

This appears to be a runoff mitigation fence to help protect the creek.

They seem to be still pulling up old footers from the original Zinger in this section

Lots of old footers and other pieces of concrete piled up

The former Chamber of Horrors building is now gone.

Still several dumpsters on site

We might start seeing work on the new footers soon

On the other side of the tracks now, you can see that they have runoff fences over here too

This area seems like it is about done being leveled

Still some work to do be done over here apparently

It appears that the new ride will be pretty close to Fury of the Nile.  That is an observation tower for the ride in this photo

We cannot wait to start seeing this ride go vertical in the near future

City Update (SDC)

The Lumber Camp project continues to grow with some massive new footers being created

This area used to be brush and the switch back walkway

The Lake has been drained so they can build this retaining wall

If you want to sit with a view of the drained Lake you can

Lots of fill gravel

This area is going to look completely different next season

City Update (SDC)


Some interesting developments over by the Lumbercamp

The only way to get to Wildfire now is past American Plunge via the duplicating lathe pathway

The Wildfire arch is no longer - and the zigzag pathway is also gone

This whole area has been cleared and leveled

This area is about to look a lot different

Zambezi Zinger (WOF)


A new screen playing the promo video for Zambezi Zinger has appeared near the entrance for the new ride.

Let's take a look at the construction clearing

This has been really cleared out since Monday

You can see that they are working at the top of this hill

It really is amazing how much they have cleared

The area near Boomerang is really cleared out

If you take a closer look you can see that they are pulling up some old footers from the old Zambezi Zinger

I cannot wait for this thing to go vertical

We'll be back soon for another update

World Update (WOF)


The painting refresh is continuing around the park and has now made it to Africa

The Africa section is looking great with this paint refresh

Zulu is still down.  We hope it returns

We missed this new landscaping at Gateway Pizza Plaza on Monday but it looks great

They have also added these boxes at the edge of the plaza

Railing has been installed inside Gateway Pizza since last Monday

The new marquee for All American Shake Shoppe has been installed

They have really ramped up the removal process of both Chamber of Horrors and Peter Peter to make room for the new Zambezi Zinger.  Yes that is King Kong standing there

Large props from Peter Peter are being staged near Monsoon

Most of these should be used in the new location for this season's Haunt

The building for Chamber of Horrors is being removed

All of the siding and roof panels have been taken off exposing the support structure

They are taking it down really carefully which makes us wonder if it will be reused in a new location
