All the construction walls along the submarine lagoon have come down. Here are a collection of pictures from today, 5/21 of the lagoon, the queue area, the sub loading dock, the rail system, and of course the subs up close.
Iíve not been checking Micechat too recently so I thought another post about subs would be overdone, but according to the shots from yesterday, the walls were still up so I now realize that with 21 days left, thereís something new to see and share.
A line uncovered. These CMs are standing at the end of the line. The CMs off to the right are near an area which there was a man working on the tie flooring for the yellow waiting line before being sent off to the next loading area.
Here is a shot of the lagoon and the wall-less Monorail station with all 8 submarines in port.
And one further out. Iím disappointed that theyíve turned the sound off for the seagulls. It was so entertaining to watch during the Rechristening Ceremony.
I returned later in the day to ride the monorail and got a few pictures of the progress. The exit waterfall area looks odd not being full of water, but nice to see there will be a small bit of an upper water holding area still.
A loading ramp!
They were waxing and repainting 2 of the subs.
Back to normal for the most partÖminus the waterfalls, talking seagulls, and Monorail Purple.
The wall of the side of the submarines seems oddly flat. I know itís always been this way, but itís weird thinking of them as giant underwater busses.
Busses complete with wheels on a track.
The full loading area has lots of fences to keep guests back from the sub loading ramps.
The loading station at the launching point has a control panel and also shows off the silver painted pipe of water filtrations which fits well into the color scheme overall as seen in the picture above.
And the accessible viewing room at the eastern end of the dock.
And now here are some other pictures from the day, I took a good number of shots of Splash Mountain as well to show off some of freshness the attraction has, unfortunately the shots didnít come out as well as I had hoped that they would (At least for the jumping waters portion of the ride which looks beautiful now). Luckily for me, the most notable change to the last scene came through perfectly.
Other than enhanced lighting they also replenished the planters and greens around Splash. They did it a bit far in advance as some areas are already dying off, but it looks very crisp in most spots.
Vegetable gathering seems more plentiful in the area just before the first drop.
And now a couple of blurry shots of the interior of the mountain.
One thing that bothers me riding it is that Brer Foxís shadow has yet to reappear the two times Iíve been on it since itís returned at the top of the big drop. Yet, the final show scene looks better than ever.
They added LED lighting effects.
