I'm putting my expectations at Adventure Express level. It'll be a normal GCI with something extra at the end.

Also I'm gonna leave this here. I would take a look at some of the other pictures on this guy's twitter page, too. Got a couple of cool facade renderings in there.

It looks like to me the shed will be a themed enclosed area that also serves as a transfer table, so instead of going through a normal transfer area they are going to spice it up.. because why not? I like the idea. I don't think there will be a drop track, or a jojo roll or anything special, but just a neat lighted area that hides the fact its a transfer table.

Good job and good luck! Breaking in the ride and taking in that new wood smell will be a treat. Don't forget to hang out near the Dippin' Dots stand so that you can tell us when the Grandson of Beast RCCA giga will finally arrive. ;)
