The parking lot is gone, and the plantings are just about to start actually. GA has no real parking lot coasters (like the California parks). The coasters built over the former parking lot (GASM and SUF) had all the blacktop removed or covered over, and the King is getting similar treament.

. You can't really see it but the parking lot fences are pretty well planted with trees as well.
