Recommended Posts

I'll take yellow or white. Green would be cool, too! 

EDIT: Thought white was grey... whoops!

I was really not expecting the area to change THAT much back there...

I bet Vortex will have a new entracne sign because the one all the way back there won't be visible at all. It also looks like you might be able to walk around tique's. So you can approach the bathrooms from the left or right side in that picture.

I don't think you'll be able to walk between Tiques and Racer.

That is a serious pinch point between The Vortex entrance and the edge of the Antique Autos.

I also think what you are seeing on the left of that photo Rick is the maintenance road that ran along that side of Racer and back behind the Bunge.

That has kind of been my fear all along.  If they keep a Haunt back there, it will be even worse

I dunno if Vortex will actually have a new entrance sign...they made a big deal out of the sign getting refurbished last year or the year before.....can't remember when specifically lol.

I don't know if it'll be too crazy of a pinch point. We have had the exit of Vortex combining with Urgent Scare traffic (to and from) and WindSeeker Fast Lane entrance. 

It may be more of a pinch point if they have the Urgent Scare Van where they had it last year.

I don't think Tiques will cause a pinch point. The worst pinch point in that area is The Vortex photo booth. I think if they tore it down, and built a new one that didn't obstruct the exit/fastlane entrance and allowed for the path around WindSeeker to be expanded, it wouldn't be a problem.

Nah it's clearly a path with not even a curb going from the front of the restrooms around the back part of tiques. I guess that big yellow rectangle could be a gate that's open?

Well think whats back there its just WinDex, WindSeeker and Vortex and some restrooms, i dont think it will cause a big deal in the midways or else they would not of chose that spot.

If access for both Urgent Scare and Field of Screams were moved to the other side of Racer (off of X-Base), I think there is plenty path to access Vortex, WindSeeker, and those restrooms.

Not much to show, but this is what KMAA looked like as of about three weeks ago. Excited to see the final product!! 

-- Edit: removed the aerial photo. Will upload again if asked after the season has begun.

Looks like Nearmap to me which would be just high altitude aerial photos.

That end of Coney Mall should now be known as AutoWinDex

We used to call it the Fustercluck the year that WindSeeker opened.

I really like how the station is looking.  I'm curious to see if Jukebox Diner gets spruced up as well since there will be more traffic in that area.

That’s a good point, and I really hope so. The Jukebox has been looking a little worn the past couple years, but has the potential of being beautiful, especially at night.
