A while back I saw on screamscape that visionland was going to put the robotic dinosaurs that they had bought for that exhibit a few years back in the flume ride. Does anyone know if this is true or not? Also, if it is true, are they going to expand the old flume ride because it was tiny.

Last October when I visited Visionland, there were signs in front of the flume ride that said "Coming in 2004 New Attraction". I haven't heard if the dinosaurs were installed on the ride yet however.

I don't think that they reopened the log flume. There has been no press about it like the news for the new waterslide. It also is not listed on the attraction page of the VL website.

It will not re-open. The dinos as well as the Enterprise there are toast. Don't look for either of them to re-open at all. The cost of refurbishing them would be just as much as buying a brand new one and the park isn't ready to spend that much money yet. Look for the new waterslide at Splash Beach (a toliet bowl) and nothing new for now at Magic Adventure. Rumor has it that they are looking for a small, used, looping coaster to add in the future, but what kind and where to buy from hasn't been decided on yet.

Rampage pretty much said it.

Nothing new huh? And they're taking away the Enterprise. That and the Rampage are all I really go for. I was planning on getting season passes next weekend but I think its pretty pointless. The water park is getting better but the amusement park isn't worth the price of admission. They've spent a lot of money both last year and this year on the water park but wont put a dime into the amusement park. I really thought the company that bought it was going to turn things around but it doesn't look like its going to happen. Maybe next year. I think I'll save my money this year.

Once again, keep in mind that turnarounds don't happen overnight, especially when you're talking about such a small company. They are expanding rhe waterpark side because that's what drives te admissions at VL. Once they have had a constant increase in revenue, I'm sure they will be adding things to the amusement park side.
