So am I. I think this is right along the lines of what their next move needed to be.
The addition of a cavern is quite unexpected. The only question is where does that show scene get built? Looking at the concept art, I can see where the dynamite goes, the cabin goes pretty much anywhere. But that cavern? Maybe at the bend by Pony Express near end of the ride? Very interested to see how this turns out.

The ride technically already has a short cave area right at the last turn, but it's really short. Not sure if they plan to use that or build another, but if they use that I'd hope they lengthen it so it at least gets a little dark inside for the scene.
If I remember correctly, Bigfoot Rapids has a fairly compact layout, but I'll be interested in seeing what they can do with it. Rapids rides usually aren't themed excessively, so they could easily make this world class.
A few photos from Friday, Nov. 16th. The rapids ride has a new sign but not much other work showing. Hollywood Hits pizza is now Beachy Keen's Pizza and serves Dole Whips. There is quite a bit of Christmas decoration up now.

Bend where dynamite water effects should be added
Hollywood Hits is gone
New place has Dole Whips
