The flag poles are still around the tower.

What was discussed was the location of the old flag poles.  They said it was on the side of Build A Bear, which was correct.  Closer to Convenience Corner.  All 3 flags and the ACE plaque.

@BoddaH1994, there was a point in the podcast that mentioned the flags around the Tower, and if they were still there.  It was not about the location of the flags towards the entrance.  My response was about the Tower flags.

Yes, we did mention the flags around the base of the tower.  We concluded that those flagpoles were still there.

Thanks @jtro223 for the confirmation. I thought they were.

I would love to see that picture of where the flag poles were. @CoastersRZ can you share it?

Not CoastersRZ, but here's one from August 2009. There were three poles (one is out-of-frame) and they were moved in front of the Fountain in May 2010.

Great job, guys! I love how knowledgeable you are about the fountains, Eric. Also, hearing about the stage makes me think of a bigger style show like Vertical Impact at Cedar Point. Wonder how this will affect (improve?) the Stunt Show and/or Winterfest. They could even do an outdoor Cirque show; the possibilities are endless! Also, re: the tables that were near Sweet Spot, I feel like those were removed due to possible congestion. I really do like how there is so much work being put into I-Street in addition to KMAA (aka the Antique Cars).

I love that you guys were able to find a resident fountain expert for this episode. Super fitting. 

I think "mini Bellagio fountain" was a super accurate prediction of what we'll probably see.

Great podcast!

I'd LOVE to hear a full scale trip report / walk through of the park.  Like 3 or 4 guys, 1-2 hours, dealing each ride, experiences and opinions, etc.  A tough task I know but that would be great to hear from the experts.

We have podcast number four recorded already.  I am in the process of editing it now.  Look for it soon.  We also have part of another podcast recorded, just need to finish recording that one.  

I do like the idea of an in park trip report/walk through.  It might take some coordination and work to pull off, but would be a nice podcast.
