KidZville River Adventure removed?

CGA recently released its 2013 map, which shows Gold Striker in the lower right corner.

But one thing is missing: KidZville River Adventure, usually a little blip on the map next to Invertigo's former spot, is now just a piece of grass.

Gold Striker to feature tunnel

In a move likely to appease the neighbors' complaints about noise, Gold Striker's first drop will feature a 174-foot enclosed tunnel, which the park describes as the "world's longest covered initial descent tunnel on a wooden coaster," according to a press release.

The tunnel will have wood on both sides, a corrugated metal roof and in-fill underneath the tracks, to give a feel of plunging into a pitch-dark mine.

New show for Action Theater?

According to a rumor from PureCoaster, the 10-year-old Spongebob 4D movie in the Action Theater could be on its way out.

The rumor said the film will be replaced with some sort of 2D white water rafting movie, possibly this season or next.

A Gold Striker photo update was posted as well.

Subway restaurant update

With all the recent Gold Striker news, such as construction crews topping off the lift hill, to the first drop being partially (or fully) enclosed, let's take a look at the other new-for-2013 attraction at CGA.

The park recently posted a photo of a building being remodeled. Although it didn't say, it's likely for Subway. The building also appears to be located close to the Great America Theater, across the way from Xtreme Skyflyer.

From CGA.

Perhaps the most exciting part? CGA applied for a permit to build a new bathroom in the restaurant. Now that's certainly more interesting than any Gold Striker announcement.

Yes, I'm kidding.
