As much as i love new France, i would still love for this to happen. New France is one of my favorite sections, but it's still not Europe. You could leave the character intact with a Swiss remake. Lots of similar architecture and terrain. Plus it fits geographically between France and Germany and has many culinary delights.

But before they dared mess with new France i would hope they fixed that joke of a hamlet in festa!

Yes, there were serious plans for a New France retheme under AB.

Fun fact: That planned hamlet was to include BGW's drop tower. When things slowed down under InBev, those plans were put on the back burner. When Blackstone showed up with full pockets, BGW was already due for an e-ticket so they put all their money onto Oktoberfest. The rest is history. Those concepts do still exist of course, but, like many passed park projects, the chances of them seeing the light of day seems slim.

There seems to be a whole army of these little boogers in this village...

This one kept coming right up to us at the picnic tables wanting a bite of my sandwich. Smiling

Lol, those squirrels are indeed everywhere. They're fun when not eating, but an annoyance when you are eating. They are determined to eat your food, I swear.

BGW Rec is BACK!

A seemingly countless amount of these benches have popped up all over New France this season. Although, I won't complain, they seem very fitting for the hamlet.

Which has actually made me wonder if the park has been going for thematic benches across the park, even if it does just have to do with color. There are green ones in Heatherdowns, red in Banbury Cross, concrete specially designed ones in San Marco, blue ones in Festa, brown painted wooden ones in Oktoberfest/Rhinefeld, and now these uniquely designed ones in New France. Just something I noticed, maybe I'm looking into things too much. Tongue

Whaa, nothing was ever planned for New France..

I remember talking to an employee back in early 2008 and he told me New France was about to see some major changes especially in the Canadian Paladium area.  After taking a tour in 2013 an employee told me a drop tower was meant for that specific location but wouldn't fit due to the size of the area. Oh and if were sharing lost concepts from AB that never saw the light of day...

Just before(well, 1-2 months) the time of year where the weather begins to cool down, the park has filed a permit for a gas fireplace to be put in the vacant fireplace attached to the new restroom building in New France. Honestly, I would've preferred they had done this last year, or when they were building the new restrooms, but I guess better late than never.

Here's a picture of the permit:

Is a fireplace really needed..? The park already has heaters around the area, when it gets cold.

Sometimes the park will file permits for small things way, way earlier than when construction/installation is scheduled to be performed. While the permit was filed now, actual construction of the fireplace may not start until later this month, or next month, which is what I would guess since they stop daily operation after Labor Day.

I wanted wood-burning, but gas is probably more practical.

I meant "now" as opposed to when it was built; not "now" as opposed to the Fall.

That should have been a working fireplace from the beginning. I'm glad they are doing it now, however.
