Just got back home from grocery shopping, and a quick trip over to the park,
to see if anything else was going on with Corkscrew and where Wave Swinger was.

Nothing appeared to be going on with Corkscrew. Everything's still in place.

And the paving over continues, where Wave Swinger used to be, in front of The Beast.

^ Man, I am getting really old! Totally forgot about the little bldg. where we get the Season Pass cards from! And indeed, it is gone too! Hmmm. Wonder if that all will happen up at the Customer Service Bldg, after we enter the park?

Well, there's still well over a month to go, before the May 4th Opening. Plenty of time to keep guessing. ;)

EDIT: By the way. I did notice that the online park map, and the actual signs at the ticket booths I saw today, haven't changed, to reflect the new Seniors' Daypass and Season Pass prices on the signs (hmmmph), as well as what is now missing, or to be replaced, on the map. I'd keep checking the map, to see if anything happens...or gets removed, I mean.

EDIT #2: I just checked my Season Pass printout, and it says I'll be getting my photo pass at "Guest Services". And that up front building has three windows I remember, so...even better than that little purple-roofed shack in front of (r.i.p?) Wave Swinger. (Which only used two of their four available windows.)

^ Yeah, I saw that last night, but the site was down here,
so I couldn't post it. Well, all I can say about it is.... Finally!

EDIT: Just checked, and on Roller Coaster Data Base, it is listed as CLOSED there.

^ I wonder if they're going to announce anything before,
or by the time Playland re-opens for the season, May 4th? :?r

And both attractions are still a part of the Playland online map, I found.

I can’t imagine they have time to install anything new for the season. Is this the start of the expansion? Has council approved it yet?

^ Oh, I was just referring to them announcing anything new. Whether it gets built for this season
or started for next season, I'm not too picky about that. *

It'll be NEW! :airtime:


*Really REALLY hoping for an El Loco!

Oh for sure! It just seems unusual for them to be removing things right before the season starts. I’m curious if this is indicative of the expansion plan starting soon?
