Is anyone going to try to go on opening day?
My Wife already has her day off request approved from the County. So yes. Not sure about the Media event, I have an Anaheim event at AGW that I have to attend at the same time. But heck, it is the Taste of Anaheim, so lots of good food and drink, and comped....

New coaster?
Even more, but yes, that is one part of it. I mentioned it before, the current Haunt Barns will be removed after this year's Haunt. That is semi-public knowledge. Anything else is a combination of not released and final purchasing hasn't happened. But it is the next big step after Calico River opens. It even has a tie to the new ride's storyline. (Don't read too much into that, just general, overall storyline,)

What is haunt going to do after this year? While I’m excited about the new possibilities I worry about loosing those spaces. Those 4 houses are usually the best ones of haunt. I hope they get new spaces.

They will be replaced. Giving the Haunt Creative Team Challenges seems to produce some amazing results, based on past history. They are already working on 2020 planning, but truly focused on this years details.

So we are kind of looking at the green area on the map. The blue area is currently Knotts. IIRC the red marked barns are Haunt barns. That's a pretty big piece of back stage.

Stopped by Knott's after work to see what is up. Henry has a new stomping ground, or well, the stomping ground was built around Henry. The metal Posts next to Bob got a speaker. The Metal pipes to make the rapids have been put back in place, and signs of water being placed in the river can be seen. The new pathway Lamps are awesome.

I love KNOTTS! They really are trying to improve the park a little more each year. I do hate the obviously unthemed speaker perched on that rock :-/

There is still one week to go. If you saw the Plunger area photos in the album, they have a set of exposed speakers, but also a set of crates next to them. I presume after the test and adjust period is finished, the speakers will be covered by some sort of disguise. We know the Crates will be used for the Plunger area, Maybe a fake rock next to Bob?

Yeah. I remember being one of the crash test dummies for Splash Mountain. It was a little strange seeing so many black speaker cabinets with EV (Electrovoice) stenciled on the grill mixed into the show scenes. That all got sorted out before public opening.

I'd actually be interested to read a detailed write up about how the ride experience changed from testing to opening if you're willing. Finding new/ unheard information about Splash is incredibly difficult.
