Three new shops - Paper Moon (which has dip-your-own candles, incense, and stuff like that); Houdini (magic shop, which will have demonstrations); and a shop that will feature airbrushed t-shirts and henna tattoos.
Kick's Grill is being expanded (that's the one in the big Route 66 shop)
There will be a new magic show Sean-Paul & Julianne with Frankie the Monkey.
Two new games - baseball toss and the GIANT crane game.
And finally they are adding a Chaos and a Flying Circus. I don't know the location of the rides yet -- but I head the Chaos might be going over by the Wildcat.
All for now, hopefully be able to get some construction shots later on once they start (as of right now they aren't doing much)

Ok folks, I apologize. It appears that The Flying Circus will not be like the ride that I stated above. Word from the park says that the ride will swing up to 80ft and the ride I mentioned only goes up to 26ft (at most). Also at further investigation. Fjord Fjarlane is called a "Big Top" - got my "circus rides" confused.
Now on to WHAT the heck this ride will be. I did some looking and found that Waagner Biro makes a ride called "Magic Arms" that comes in a "Flying Circus" model. Now if my conversion from metric to standard version is correct then it should go up to about 80ft. IF this is the ride (and I'm going to check in on this) then this is quite the addition to CC.
I didn't see this topic earlier. Thanks Dukies for pointing this out.
This is great news. I have a chance to go down to the park tomorrow after I'm done with school. So I was thinking about going down and taking some digital pictures and sending them into you Dustijn. Do you think it would be worth it.
As for that 'rideindex' site, that link isn't workin out for me. Oh well.
Where did you find this info, have they updated their site?
As for the Magic Arms, that will be an interesting addition to CC. I know that Barth has been looking to unload it for some time, so I am sure he would be glad to have found an owner. In addition, I believe WB only built one of these. TrickTrack can add more info., but my friends in Germany told me that Magic Arms is one of those rides that looks a lot more exciting than it rides.
What IS it about the name "Magic Arms" that sounds so much more *inviting* than the name "Flying Circus". Don't get me wrong, I loved Monty Python....but c'mon, how can you beat MAGIC....arms....hehehe.
Both great additions for CC, and if the Flying Circus is "less exciting", then at least that'll balance out some of their other QUITE intense rides....rounding out the menu, so to speak...;)
Bill if you do go down let me know - I'm not sure if it would be worth it or not. Last time I was down there they were clearing land near the outer fence to the east of the park -- not sure if that was CC's doing or what. If you do take pictures, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org (but make sure they aren't toooooo big in size otherwise it won't work).
Ok, just got back. I really could not see much. I snuck through the make-shift exit (West of the entrance with the sign) and drove through gravel parking lot, got all the way to the front gate. Then some security guys saw me, and I asked if I could take some pictures, and they said sure as long as I dont wander into the park. So that was pretty nice of them.
As for the rides, the way that CC is built, you really could not see too much. I saw where they are keeping some of the old Branson USA rides, and I think I saw the Chaos ride, but I could be wrong. It was sitting just south of the entry gate. Actually, now that I think about it, it looked more like a parachute ride. The one with the metal parachutes that rotate around the center. Then in the parking lot, I think I saw the trains for "Jackrabbit." They were under tarps, so I couldn't really tell.
The Ozark Wildcat was beautiful as always. I will send my pictures into DHollon and hopefully he will post them on his site.
