They never really teased closing the ride. It has always been b=named Rip Roarin' Rapids since it's opening back in 1982.

RIP is the way this site needs to go when stupid posts like that are made by someone other than me or Jarvis.

I noticed they removed some of the tin roof from the station and queue, but left others. I wonder if they had some use for it (like goldrusher or something)

Also they've left the boats sitting there...if the ride is never opening again, it seems like an easy thing to sell the boats

I wouldn't be surprised to see the bits of tin roofing show up at one of the new scare zones.

And who would want to buy thirty year old boats? If anything, the fact that the boats are still sitting right where the park left them at the end of last year is an indicator that the ride *won't* come back and they're not gonna expend any labor to mess with it until they decide what's next.

Fill up RRR up with Water....... Stock it up with Bass/Trout.

Lets Go Fishing Girls.

Option:
Bring back the Carolina Sternwheeler & Turn it into a Restaurant..... Caught your own fish..... Clean it..... Fry it..... Eat it the same day.

If they aren't going to reopen the ride, then I think they should just run the pumps for a nice little river and put a dive coaster over it
