    You beat me to it. But yeah splash water kingdom has been looking extremely run down in the last few years. It's the least they could do with this cheap addition. If all of splash water kingdom gets a new coat of paint I'd welcome it with open arms.

    Since were on the topic of the park posting the update, a few weeks ago I was contacted by someone at the park and I might be going to media day on behalf of the site, nothings confirmed but if invited I'll be sure to keep everyone updated from the event and take alot of pictures of the new area!

    Here's a better pic of the area, but still not a full pic of the area. Looks like a lot of new concrete around the ride and around Mega Wedgie. Nice to see the area expanded and spruced up a little bit. I hope they put the queue back for Mega Wedgie though. I think the pic I posted (from their Facebook) was taken a few days later than the one on Twitter because you can see the completed new roof on the changing building, and a few other changes.

    Interesting how this project is turning out. I thought it was just going to be a rehab of Noah's Spray Ground but it looks much more involved.

    Here's a few picture from a local newspaper of the project. It looks great!- nice and clean and updated with new rope fencing, more deck space, new water figures and play areas, etc.... I mean, nothing really note worthy added but it replaced something that needed replacing about 10 years ago.

    These pictures are courtesy of the Albany Times Union:

    More pictures! I guess today was some sort of "Media Day" event. This is all from the Glens Falls Post Star newspaper.

    Pic above is from TGE's twitter. Those green things in the pic above that look like big plants are all new sprayers that shoot into the air.
