Mystic River Falls (SDC)

Well... if we don't look over the fence, how can we provide our readers with a new update?

The terrain of the ride plot continues to change each day

The pump house seems to sprawl out even further each time we visit.

The foundations over there for the pump house (and maybe station) continue to grow.

Something new has popped up over by the Giant Swing, and the foundations for what we assume is the new Ribhouse have appeared.

The trough continues to grow.  They've added a new bunny hop section

You can see the new section there on the left along with lots of machinery

There's the new section in the middle of the photo, and what appears to be some new landscaping at the bottom of the photo

The path here is kind of interesting as it leads to nothing and is directly "below" the new dining patio for Crossroads Pizza.  Maybe this will be a viewing area with water blasters?

Here you can see that new cement area.  Our guess is viewing area.

Here are the ends of the trough for right now.

A different vantage point of the ends of the trough and the start of a very beefy footer.  Could this be where the slide is going?

Now we're not saying that there will be an elevator lift on this thing, but can you explain these foundations if there is not going to be a lift?

It just seems a little too "lifty" to be anything else.

Definitely something that we will need to keep an eye on

One last photo where you can see some of the pump house.  We'll be back again soon.

World Update (WOF)

Time to take a lap around the park to see what is new at WOF.
At the bridge to the Orient, the Tori Gate is now installed and awaiting paint.

A new burro topiary has arrived in the Wild West

They were practicing for the new Bow Wow Luau at Country Junction.

With Eli still out for its renovation, and Forum closed for the addition of the shade structures, this pathway has been reopened to park guests.

Speaking of the shade structures, it appears the one closest to Detonator is completed.

The one closest to Fury of the Nile is still being worked on.

Europa has its flower logo bed back this season.

Some really pretty flowers in bloom near Taxi Tour

New signage at Let Them Eat Cake.

Prospector's Cantina has some new signs as well.

Americana Star Fountain Plaza is looking amazing with its spring colors.

Scandi Candies is supposed to open later this month.

The control booth for the International Plaza Stage is nearing completion.

We'll end this update with a look at the beautiful floral clock.
Until next time, see you on the midways.

Pig Pen's Petting Farm (WOF)

There's been some major changes since our last visit.  The old marquee for Peanuts Playhouse has finally been removed.  Also wooden fences have gone up around the outside, like what was shown in the concept art.

Inside, almost all of the components of the old foam ball factory are gone, including the upper level flooring.

Reports are stating that the new Petting Farm will open on May 18th.  We'll be there to cover the grand opening.

Phoenix (Adventureland)

Adventureland's new Phoenix coaster is about completely assembled.

The local news station showed off some close ups of the track
 
This is going to be one twisted ride.

Supergirl Skyflyer (SFSTL)


The park has made quite a bit of progress on the new Supergirl Skyflyer since our last visit.  The ride's main structure and lift are now in place.  It is now awaiting installation of the rider carriages.

Here is where the entrance arch will be for the ride.

The queue will hug the perimeter fence on this side of the ride

Notice the extensive amount of LED lights on this ride.  It is really going be impressive at night.  The park is still shooting for a Memorial Day Weekend opening for the new ride.
