Anybody think this is possibly setting up for a front gate rehab or completely redone like CP and Carowinds?

Dang. I was hoping for a FULL Carowinds renovation. It doesn't look like that's happening.

I am SO excited to see this!!! International Street has always had the potential to be one of the most gorgeous park entry plazas anywhere. And now it just might be!

Having ridden both I can safely say I prefer being smacked in the face repeatedly with a ball-peen hammer.

I can’t wait to see the outcome. I’m really happy about this.


Oh sweet, I hope they hired the same guys who did the main street renovation at Walibi Holland!

Wow, is that ugly. I believe the facades will probably go back to the more authentically European 1972 look with browns and yellows. I hate the horrid, bright colors they have now. The focal point when you walk in should be the Royal Fountain and Eiffel Tower and the buildings should not be visual disruptions to that straight shot, which they are now.
