    Silver Dollar City has removed the Lost River of the Ozarks rapids ride to make room for a huge new 2020 project. No details about what the park is working on, but in addition to the ride, a very large area surrounding the attraction has been cleared.

    Interesting, I'm guessing no one had any idea they were removing the rapids?

    Excited to see what they have planned.

    Well I didn't even know they had rapids, so there you go!

    I mean, I'm not surprised, I'd just never seen it before. :p

    Ya, it was a hidden gem in that park, that indoor part was so weird <3. Still, I trust Herschend to replace it with something worthwhile.

    Dollywood's river rapids also is built in the middle of a pathway network, like Silver Dollar City's. It'll be interesting to see if Dollywood's river rapids undergoes the same fate.
