Well it looks like progress is underway for the Spongebob Squarepants Rock Bottom Plunge and Avatar Airbender. Nothing much to look at yet, but it seems to be that some structure and tracks are in place.
As a kid we always made the trek up to the Twin Cities for New Years and attended the New Years Parties at Camp Snoopy. So I for one am a little sad to see that fountain go (in favor of the half pipe) it was around that fountain where the NYE fireworks show was held, which with the new ride there Im guessing that they discontinued those parties, which is a shame, it was always fun to be riding the Ripsaw, Log Ride and (later) Ghost Blasters until 2am.
Totally not a long way to go, either. Each time I go to the mall (which is about once a week :)), I am shocked at the progress. The halfpipe track went up in 3-4 days. I wouldn't be suprised if SpongeBob is testing by the first week in February.
Too bad annual passes are going to be so ridiculously priced, or I'd for sure get one.
The Halfpipe at Elitch's is great. I thought this one was going to be another Disk-O until recently. Wow, four coasters in the mall now. Just as long as they don't get rid of the Tumbler, right Bill? ;)
^^^Matt, you'd have known about the Halfpipe sooner if you weren't busy being relocated - now DelGrosso's doesn't have the only "imported loopy thing" in PA... ;)
Personally, I like the ride experience better on the Zamperlas. Seating configuration on the halfpipe means half the people get their ears/heads knocked around on the launch...I guess that's the "price" of getting a credit, huh?
P.S. The Tumbler is OFF-LIMITS. Getting rid of that means I'd have to go to Puyallup every year...LOL!

On the storage track which is hidden somewhat inside/behind the log flume's mountain.
