^Old Tucson is going through a long process of fixing up the Merry-Go-Round. There is no Ferris Wheel but there are antique cars and a train that travels around the park. They also added a couple new set pieces last year and have more shows throughout the day.

Another place to visit in Tucson is Trail Dust Town

http://www.traildusttown.com

This has a Merry-Go-Round, Ferris Wheel, Train with actual working animatronics, and a pretty bad@$$ stunt show. Plus, the steaks at the restaurant are pretty tasty.

I think I've eaten there before, when we were visiting family. It's kinda like Tucson's very own CASA BONITA. =)

Here's some construction photos from the Zoo's Facebook Page. I've also included a somewhat recent (December 2014) Aerial of the park and where the new land and coaster will be.

The park just posted these photos on their Facebook page. A lot of progress has been made on the coaster!

IOE has been onsite the last several days testing the control systems readying the new Jr. coaster for it's maiden voyage. Bryan posted a neat video showing a bit of what they do to prepare the system as well as shows off the site. Check out the video on their facebook page, and while you're at it, give em a like! Video

Saw on their Facebook page that they are looking at an early 2016 opening for the new land and rides. They just tested the Zipline with the owner of the park and it looks like a very fun-family ride.
