Thanks to MPD47 for getting us this pic which is shown on SFDLnet. There are reportedly 30 construction flags around the area seen from the log ride. With not so many flags right now and which may be all it could be some type of drop tower ride. If not I hope for one of the 4-D coasters. I would die if SFDL got one of those bad boys.

Could this be the start of the rumored waterpark expansion? I'll be heading there the first or third week of August, so I'll scope it out and see what's going on!

Why would they get a lazy river, Ryan316, they already have one, Floodgate Falls, is a real smaller version and more exciting version of a lazy river. Plus i doubt they would take out those slides for a lazy river. Those were always very popular among the General Public. Its either gonna be a drop tower, water park expansion, or some type of water slide.

We'll all have to wait and see... keep in mind they are probably going to destroy Cuda Falls, and the rest of the water stuff in the area and there will be PLENTY of room for anything the park can dish out...for more discussion check out the SFDLnet forums.... http://sfdl.coasterbuzz.com/forums

From the picture the slides look awesome. I hope they don't tear them out.

I thought they were pretty cool, But they were dangerous. On some parts of the slides you would almost come to a stop, and on other sections you would almost fly off the sides and lose your mat! I can understand why the park would want to get rid of them.

I don't know if anyone who visits SFDL gets it or not...

BUT...
SFDL has closed down Cascade Canyon water slides because it will cost a little to fix them. It isn't because they don't have the money to fix them. C'mon, they're a major theme park part of the Six Flags chain.

The reason they are not fixing them is simple... Why Bother??. If they are rumored for the waterpark expansion (which was supposed to be on the 2001 agenda, mind you), then they were to dismantle them anyway.

Their plans are to NOT remove the Cascade Canyon and other slides to put a lazy river there...

That's kind of stupid. They want to keep the entire waterpark on ONE side of the park. Why cross over to the other side for a stupid lazy river... that isn't so lazy now, is it?

What they planned on doing is taking any attractions left on the original side of the waterpark (ie: Cuda Falls, but not Floodgate Falls), and move it to the side with Hooks Lagoon & Crocadile Isle. From there, they can work into Elk Lake and build a decent set of new water attractions.

This INCLUDES:
- A Lazy River
- A Super Saturator Water Coaster
- Cuda Falls Relocated
- Set of New Waterslides
- Wet/Dry Slides
- New Tube Slides


I am not saying this is going to be... I am saying this is what they could add.

Remember, they got a lot of room there. They got all the way up to the helix of the Superman, and who's to say that Elk Lake has to stay that big the whole time? Drain that sucker out and call it Elk Pond!!! It's a lotta room, and can make for a great water-park expansion :).

Nicely said dog byte!!! With all that on that side of the park, that means more room for rides on the other side! I would like to see a drop tower over there, with a couple flat rides and maybe an impulse and wild mouse.
