    Maybe an Obvious DCA Question but what's happened to the G. Zepher?

    Everyone is talking about the Orange Stinger and its metamorphasis.... what about the Golden Zepher and those cute 'flying Jellyfish' thingies.

    Golden Zephyr already is Victorian themed. Jumpin' Jellyfish should be rethemed but apparently won't.

    I always thought it looked like a 1950's rocket toy to be honest.

    Jumpin' Jellyfish should be rethemed ripped out but apparently won't.

    I thought I read somewhere that they would be taken down as part of the new beer gardens and viewing area for WOC. ??

    Looking at the new concept art at the Blue Sky Cellar, it looks like the Jumpin Jellyfish and Golden Zephyr are staying. Of course, this is just concept art so it doesn't necessarily mean they are staying for sure.

    I particularly like how they painted the area pitch black.

    Jumpin' Jellyfish will eventually be removed.

    The Golden Zepher isn't quite Victorian themed
    as it looks. However it's not known if this attraction
    will receive any Victorian overlay during the first
    phase of the park's re-identification progect.

    But I agree with Tech. The ride looks too industrial.

    Nothing is suppose to replace it.

    It was suppose to be removed to
    provide better viewing for the World of Color
    from the newly rethemed Paradise Grill eateries.

    Oh, okay. I wonder what'll halpen to the Golden Zephyr then? Once Jellyfish gets removed, I think it'll look kind of odd by itself there, and the only thing next to it will be SSS, which is a little farther up Paradise Pier.

    I say move Jumpin' Jellyfish to A Bug's Land and retheme it butterflies or something. At least it would sorta look in theme.

    I think they should just scrap it. I like zephyr though, but i wouldnt mind if they took it out and put something else in its place, or used the space it was in for something useful, like part of the viewing area, too.

    I was going to suggest that as well, but at the last minute I figured if they already spent the money on the ride they may as well use it somewhere else. All it would need is some good themeing and put in the right area. Maybe butterflies wouldn't work well, but I'm sure there's some other type of bug that could work.

    Moving it else where wouldn't be a bad idea.

    In fact it would be better to move it right
    beside the Mermaid Grotto that will be built
    right next to Ariel's UnderSea Adventure.

    This would become a Mermaid "mini-land"
    if you will.
