Never did ride Rim Runner, though I don't like water rides so I'm not bummed about it. I would be kinda bummed if they took the mountain out, it makes the inside of the dome more interesting. But I can understand the desire to take it out and be able to utilize the small footprint of the park a bit more.
Now if only we could fix up the crap hole the dome is attached to.

That will really be too bad as those rocks gave the park so much atmosphere. I'm still hoping that only the rock feature on Rim Runner's lift will be removed...

They are not wasting any time! The park is now closed through Friday and I wanted to stop by before work to see if anything was being done. As I pulled up they were unloading the last of the boats off of a trailer in the parking lot behind Adventuredome. Keep in mind, the ride has only been closed for 12 hours. Photos are below, this was as close as I could get to them because I had to get to work. I will try and stop by for a closer look later this evening. Enjoy!
This appears to be a very old boat that hasn't been used in a very long time. The boats that were painted a couple of years ago are the ones they have been using.
