^^I don't know about the wildcat, but that render on GCII's facebook does sort of match some of SDC's topography...

 

A huge update was posted on Flikr today, showing even more work that's going on: Off Season at the City

 

Streets have been torn up and are being re-built, new water lines and such everywhere, buildings are being refurbished, FITH has had a complete make-over... All-in-all it looks like the park is really being cleaned up for it's 50th year in operation, and is being poised to grow in big ways soon!

This looks awesome! I am hoping to get out to SDC this year for the first time. It looks like a beautiful park.

 

It is one of the most Beautiful Parks out there. If you get a chance to go to SDC go, trust me you won't regret it. Also don't miss the Marvel Cave tour or Grandfathers Mansion, and if you are into it Happy Frogs easily the most intense kiddie rides out there.

 

Great to see River Blast coming along it will be a nice family addition to the park to make up for the loss of Gyser Gulch.

There is the possibility that I will be visiting SDC on March 18 or 19. Will T&HRB be open? Will all of the rides be open?

We're visiting the College-Conservatory of Music on Cincinnati, so I thought we might as well visit a place on our way home. Branson is slightly out of the way, but not too much.

The official website (http://www.sdcriverblast.com) says T&HRB official opening is March 18.

Theme is paramount at Silver Dollar City, roots and river rocks are added to the stream bank.
