View Full Version : Tom Sawyer Island pics in today's update - speculation

So it seems a lot of formal platform construction is going on in the northeast corner of the Island. And with a pseudo stage/platform area being set up across the waterway at the Idian village I started thinking about what could go in. I already did notice the updated fixes going on with the Mine Train tunnel along Big Thunder Trail and then what would it all mean..

1) a second access point to the island? (allow for more guest transitions)
2) a second "show" at the new Village platform?
3) or the most likely - it's all a bunch of cutaways and removal being planned due to the speculated sunken ship or treasure chest (complete with attached skeletons) that could be raised by visitors to the island - so you have to build extra support on that end - and then cut away from the other side of the river to allow for traffic flow...

Thoughts?Apparently it's something used in Fantasmic, and it's just tucked out of the way over there. My bad. :eek:

ok - so that could be the village stuff - but what of all of the construction of the platform on the northeast side? just wondering out loud, er, in public :)

Anyone remember the "Secret Escape Passage" tunnel that used to run from the inside of the fort, underground to the shore? That was a long, long, really fun tunnel. I hope they are digging it out and structurally reinforcing it, so that it can be reopened.

Looks like this morning, they placd a mast on the front of the island. It was interesting to see how they brought it in.

Over at mouseinfo, there are some pictures (http://www.mouseinfo.com/forums/showthread.php?t=85988)of how it was brought in and where it now stands.
