So, there will be a new attraction in Hurricane Harbor, but not in the theme park itself? Anyone have an update on this?

Hi Steven,

What are the dimensions of the cabins? It has been mentioned by several people in this thread how large the cabins are, but to get a real idea of their size it would be nice to know their dimensions.

Brian,

Do you know for sure whether or not SFGAm will put out the model for the American Eagle in celebration of the 30th B'day? In some thread, I thought I recall reading about that.

New Rides/Attractions for 2006

Hey Everyone.... Kinda quiet in the Forums lately. Does anyone know what the new rides and attractions at SFGAm and PGA will be for 2006? Would be soooooo cool if the parks' big shots would bring back one of our favorite rides that has been dismantled in honor of the 30th Year Anniversary of the par...

Tanya,

What did you do with those items you once had? I am surprised by how cheap some things go for on Ebay. Others go for much more.

I agree with Redfishpaw. It would make for some very interesting photos. Employees who work year round could take these photos with no problem.

Anyone have a helicopter? I want a few aerial views of SFGAm after the recent 5+ inches of snow that fell yesterday. Bet it would look "COOL".

I should have clarified. I meant this one cabin that was preserved and put near its old location. It was undoubtedly removed during dismanteling.
