As well as Colossus now taking test riders, many areas of the park are undergoing improvements. Thunder River is being transformed in to the delightfully tacky Rumba Rapids.


The surrounding area has also been given new paint, including Burger King. At the park entrance the front of the staff building now features eight extra ticket windows for better efficiency. The small central food outlet in Canada Creek has had a facelift with new theming and signage. Lastly the far right photo shows the newly constructed warehouse on the peninsula.
