They are adding six new ride but no new coasters. They are getting a free fall ride , a balloon ride above the park, and several interactive attractions.

If only they could have added flyers instead of balloons.

This is going to be a great addition to SDC. The whole kids play area has seemed kind of dead for a while while this will have attractions for everyone including the tower from Celebration City for a nice thrill ride. I'm curious if this might end up being a bit of a multi year expansion with a coaster like Dollywood's Firechaser Express eventually added. What I'm curious about is if the tower for the old slide complex is ever going to be removed?

Have Fun

I am very excited for this! I visited Geyser Gulch in 2013. It seemed like the kiddies liked to shoot things, but that was it. I think with this, they will be able to do a lot more, AND be able to shoot water in a certain area. It's a win!

Considering how many Facebook page comments were along the lines of "OMG, the Balloon Ride is coming back, YAY!" I think they made the right choice on that one.
