Made another mockup of what I want to see the park look like within the next 5-10 years, but this approach is slightly more realistic:
CROSSROADS: I think this was gabed's idea, but naming the front area Crossroads makes sense as it is a cross section between many parts of the park. Hopefully they continue to phase out the Art Deco architecture and eventually make it into an International Street-esque area.
CAROUSEL PARK: Suggestions I'd make in this area would be a theater facade upgrade and concrete on Scrambler's pad. A Vortex conversion would be okay, but I'd rather see it replaced with some sort of family ride flat package here similar to Gemini Midway at CP and Route 76 at Valleyfair. Some sort of antique autos attraction and another major flat ride would make this area feel complete.
THRILL ZONE: Pretty generic section of the park. I guess more lighting would make it look nicer. Did they ever get around to putting the lighting package on Scream Weaver?
FOOTHILLS FESTIVAL: "Mountain" area, bring in some rockwork and water features, and move the Boardwalk theming to the Harbor.
COUNTY FAIR: This is currently my favorite section of the park (I haven't seen Camp Snoopy in person yet), there's probably nothing I'd change.
LOWCOUNTRY: I've already shared this idea many times, a Charleston/South Carolina lowlands and coast-themed area. As much as I love Boo Blasters, I think the building it's in would serve much better as a higher capacity dark ride/simulator or another theater.
CAMP SNOOPY: This area looks pretty good based off of pictures. Since Dinos Alive is on its way out soon, I think a Splash Battle would fit nicely in that corner by Wilderness Run. I would also paint Woodstock Express maroon or some sort of light brown to give it a more "woodsy" theme.
CAROLINA HARBOR: Place the lighthouse from the Boardwalk into the entry plaza, and use the Boats on top of Chickie's and Pete's as theming for Tidal Wave Bay.
