Decoding Episode II: Rivertown 2017 and the Falling Trees

Recommended Posts

Once again, the building and queue for Tomb Raider: The Ride are being used for things that aren't Tomb Raider: The Ride.

 

I know I shouldn't be bothered by that, but I still am.

 

Sigh.

 

On a more positive note, I really am excited for this announcement. I also really like the trend of new ride announcements being big in-park events for all guests. It's just a neat thing to experience. There's a type of excitement there that just can't be found elsewhere. I hope it continues. I'm sure this one will be great!

Just noting: on Banshee's announcement day, The Beast along with all attractions in Action Zone closed in advance of the announcement. The Beast was closed so that they would be clear to launch fireworks immediately following the announcement.

 

I'm sure announcements of any early ride closures will be made throughout the day, so everyone can get their rides in beforehand.

Looks like camo cover and maybe using the building for a screen of projector??

That camo cover is all too familiar, here is a video from YouTube of the Son of Beast announcement in 1999. https://youtu.be/UJF7tdvhUTo Skip to the 5 minute mark in the video.

^^^ Don had hair???!?
Don with hair at 1:29. Crazy, he was introduced as just a special guest and coaster enthusiast(with an impressive number of The Beast rides). Now he's delivering the speeches

Looks like the rain might let up just in time for the announcement. Don't forget to stop by your local DollarTree to pick up a rain poncho!

I'm sorry, I prefer to purchase one at full retail for $5 plus tax. Thank you very much. Ha! (I bought a KI umbrella and I love using it everywhere) I don't want the print out of my layout getting wet to show off! Heehee. Maybe Don will sign it!!??!!
