I’ll never forget how much my siblings and I used to pester my father about what was coming.
I wish I could calculate just how many times we asked him, “C’mon, can you at least give us a hint?” He’d say something incredibly vague that gave absolutely nothing away like, “It’s big.” (Well, duh, everything we do here, we kind of “do big.”)
So I guess the reason I haven’t written anything in a while is that I’m not very good at dropping hints. And yes, I’m totally going to blame this one on my dad for never giving me any good hints (while we’re at it, I think I now blame him for how terrible I am at riddles, too).
Everything I think of seems to be way too obvious. I can’t just dive into this hinting thing.
The good news is: I haven’t had to do any hinting. We’ve got our “Head-Hinter Extraordinaire” Paula writing about the voyage to the New World at 66DaysAtSea.com. And she’s an expert (she still has people trying to figure out what’s in the mastiff’s jowls).
While you can sort through the 66 Days journal posts to the point of distraction, there’s another site that’s creating a lot of speculation: our construction site.
While we could do what other parks have done and put up a fence (which probably wouldn’t do much good anyway with that nice spectator tower), we’ve always been a little different.
Instead of making you work so hard for those hints out in our field, we’re going to make it just a bit easier. We’re setting up a webcam that’s going to provide a live stream of our construction site—24/7. (Keep in mind that some of those 24 hours are going to be at night – when it’s dark and all, so you’re probably not going to get much insight from 10pm to 6am.)
Here’s a bonus hint for you: We’re making the announcement on July 24 (Christmas Eve in July) because we have a delivery coming the very next day. Yes, our Christmas in July is going to be bigger than ever before!
But hey, there might be some things you can figure out ahead of time just from our footers.
Several coaster enthusiasts think they’ve already found some answers from the Hyena Falls tower view.
Our ConstructionCam should go live this coming week, so the clues are going to keep on coming as we prepare the site for the delivery of our best Christmas gift ever.
I’ll be watching. Will you?
