Fire in the Hole (SDC)


The queue line bars have been delivered

Really liking the details on the facade

A look at the awning over the queue area

I have a feeling that this area is going to be full most of the season

Here is a look at the entry area to the new section from what was called Firemans Landing.  There will obviously a train crossing gate here

The Swings have been moved to their new location

This area will all receive new pavers

The Swings are starting to come together
