As stated ..... the demise of Cascade Peek was due to rout ... and the management of the time (Pressler - Do I really need to say more?!) ) cared little to nothing about repairing it ... so they just leveled it ... and blended it into the rather boring area - Just more bush.
With the possibility of redeveloping Frontierland to the west and north of Big Thunder ..... I could picture something on the river's edge that is part New ride / Part Aesthetic that would be something as spectacular as Cascade Peek or better.
The possibilities are many:
I remember trips on the MarkTwain or Columbia in the 90s ...that as soon as we came up to Cascade Peek, everybody lurched to the left to see the falls. So ... no one could say today's more cynical audiences could careless ... and was only one of those "60s" things.
Far from the truth.
But we had a management team then who were more interested in letting attractions "ride" to failure ...then restore or repair.
But following the demise of Cascade Peek in 1998 .... there was one more remnant from Nature's Wonderland that was going the way of Cascade Peek about some 5 years ago. A railroad tunnel that can be seen from a small moat to the west of Big Thunder Trail ...was beginning to cave in. But that was repaired ... and is still part of the area "aesthetics" to this day:
