Hearing that Turn It Up will be ending this year. Also heard that the Sky Ride may not open until after the summer
The Sky Ride is the perfect ride for everyone in a park full of thrills

I will be really disappointed if this continues to be pushed off and just shuttered completely

New sign outside the Pantopia Theater shows that 4 different acts will perform starting tomorrow through next month. There was a big coming soon banner over it when I saw it so I couldn't see all the acts but one was Team iLuminate from AGT, seemed like 2 singers, and an acrobatic group. We'll probably hear more about it sometime this week

Turn It Up ending could potentially be great news. I'd really love to see something more theatrical, like the shows that came before it, take its place.

Strange that the Congo train station has been reopened but not the sky ride. I wonder if some components got damaged in the years of disuse?

Has anyone seen any progress or starting up again for Project Jethro? I know some pieces of the air tanks were over by Kumba for a while, just wondering if the old Rhino Rally station area has had anymore work done? I'm sure whenever the Sky Ride opens we'd have some more answers.

I'm guessing it's a quick and easy build, and if the goal is spring of 2023 they really don't have to do anything for another couple of months. There seemed to be work happening on the site just a few weeks ago.

I’ve seen construction workers go in and out over there the past few days, haven’t really seen any progress progress lately though

That's true being a flat ride and all, was just hopeful we'd see something more happening even it were que shade structures lol

I agree, this thing will probably pop up overnight lol

We all know they aren't concerned about theming it

Plus the entire thing is sitting in the employee parking lot by Kumba
