I say if they were going to do a forbidden frontier type attraction there, it wouldn't be temporary. They probably would add some things to it though over the years. They would close it if over the years it loses popularity like Dinos Alive did.

I wonder what they are planning on doing with that pile of dirt to the left as you walk into area 72. Hopefully some theming.

There’s already a meteor crater and news van in front of the hangar!

Did Don turn it off or something?! 

I bet you they did that to test the LED lights

Plenty of other people would still see it for some distance. I still maintain they are testing them during the late day sun as its so bright off that lift it would be very difficult to tell. I dont think the show lights come on till we are at Media day or passholder day. Media day was scheduled to start at 5am Thursday, plenty dark enough to wow the attendees.

Are there anyone there that would be able to test it? I thought staff aren't able to be there right now. 

I drove by the park late afternoon and didn't see any cars the by the offices today, but they could have  been there earlier in the day.

Heightened_Imagery posted a detailed photo of The Vortex site. It appears that some parts of the plot may have been leveled off, but I don’t know if all of it is going to be leveled off.

You can look and see it says "locker storage and cargo" I believe where the lockers are going. 

Why do you think the lockers are going there?

it was on the blueprints. 

Not only will they open late or not at all, but going to them charge for lockers.  Hopefully be free for pass holders.

I spent like $100 on all season lockers, I doubt they’re going to do free lockers.

I am sure the park will give you a big stack of $2 off a funnel cake coupons to make up for it.  :lol:

Heightened Imagery posted two more pics. One of them was overtop the crest. You can look and see it says "locker storage and cargo" I believe where the lockers are going. 

Was it posted today on IG?

No, but it's on Facebook. Midwest Coaster Fans shared it. 

Found it. Interesting angle on that one.

I don't like that some of the theming didn't match the video.

Well what did you expect -  the video also had Vortex in it; Racer running backwards, and Soak City on the north end of the park:P

From the looks of it, there is still quite a ways to go. Most of the theming will probably be placed and installed within 2-3 weeks of opening.

I expected the News Van to be blue and near the Orion entrance.

Those things can be moved though. I wouldn't expect them to have it out when the park isn't open yet

It’s likely supposed to tie in with the news video they show in the Flight of Fear hangar. Having the van closer to Flight of Fear than Orion allows guests to make that connection between the outside and inside of the hangar. It’s better visual storytelling IMO.

Oh. That is understandable. Do you think they will still have that blue one by the Orion entrance?

Everybody get to bed early and get a good nights sleep. Media Day starts bright and early in the morning.  :ph34r:

Everyone should post content from Banshee and Mystic Media Days in the morning.  It will be like ESPN Classic.
