Last update of the season! Remember for those planning a trip this year, that Mystic River Falls will not be opening with the park in March. Expect it around May.

I find it interesting how many of the buildings in this area are sporting aluminum siding. Kinda plain as it is, but im sure they're probably gonna get painted with some more details as the project progresses closer to opening. But, the rockwork around the ride looks stellar already. Im sure it will look even more incredible with water flowing through it!

I am liking this look much better. Yes this style is better fitting with the theme of the time period especially once it gets that weathered look in a few years. Some of the other stuff they have done in recent years has been okay but a tad bit too clean and modern for 1880's IMHO.

This project kinda slipped under my radar earlier this year but after going on Infinity Falls at SeaWorld recently these newer generation rapids rides are a lot of fun and a huge draw, that thing had a decent line even on a fairly cold day in December. I realize this one isn't made by Intamin but it seems to be a similar product and designed within an existing park setting with plenty of views and interaction points similar to Infinity Falls which was really fun. Gone are the days of rapids ride being tucked away out of sight in the back corner of a park which I probably for the better. Looks like a great addition to SDC.

It's an excellent addition and I feel like it's getting passed over because it's not a coaster and Branson is pretty out of the way for a lot of people. It does seem inspired by Infinity Falls, Grizzly, Kali, and the like. It's really impressive already, and they don't have the drop built yet. This will tower over the Riverfront area.

We already bought our 2020 passes, so I'll have a couple updates in the spring. Hopefully SDC's PR will have some over this winter too.
