Very nice addition. I figured after the Log Ride and Mine Ride got major overhauls, it was only a matter of time before the same happens to Bigfoot Rapids. I'm excited to see how this plays out.

So am I. I think this is right along the lines of what their next move needed to be.

YES!!!! So glad they're not removing their rapids ride, and bringing new animatronics too? This is a must ride next year.

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.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Love it. :lover:

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.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

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.

Here's the art concept of that "Dynamite Area" (care of KBF, thanks)
that will fit where the Pony Express goes by, over, and around. :smile:

And I still think they should put a Haunted Swing into Mystery Lodge.

Does Knott's keep their entrance open right until closing? I've seen some parks close it off in the last 10-15 minutes.

I have a season pass and if my plane arrives on time, I may just make it before they close. If I can sneak in a bonus GhostRider ride at night, I'm definitely interested.
