Project 2023 (SDC)

 

PROJECT 2023

The building for the Fire in the Hole replacement attraction continues to see progress at a record pace

As of right now we have not seen any track on site, but we figure pieces should be showing up soon

For those of you not familiar with the older Fire in the Hole building, the footprint of this new building is smaller.  However it about two times taller.  This means we will have more levels to this ride and probably a much taller finale drop.

The amount of siding already up on the road side of the building is pretty impressive. We believe that there will not be any track added before this side of the building is completely closed in

Let's look at the building from the train now.  Here is the queue building and then the main building

We talked about the access door area last time and we are even more convinced that this is what it will be.  Looks like the track pieces will be brought into the building here once it goes vertical

This side of the building appears to be in the process of being prepped for siding installation

So one thing to point out here is that the siding is different than the road side.  We have what looks like a window pattern going and we imagine that this will continue on this side of the building.

We have received reports that they are trying to get this side of the building done next as it will be used for Pumpkins this fall and the wall of storage containers will be removed permanently

Inside the Firehouse now for these next few photos. Here is a look at that semi that is parked in the structure still.  The only way it will be able to get out is through that access door way that you can see on the right part of this picture.

Here is the queue area and you can see they are doing some work out in the courtyard area that will be in front of the building

This semi is just so random and very red.

So you cannot see the lower part of the wall from the train due to the construction fences, but it has been completed up to the access doorway on the Pumpkins Plaza side.

It does not appear that they have put any siding on the area between the access door and the queue building yet.

One last photo from inside Fireman's Landing.  Again this is where the entrance to the ride will go.
