Whose to say that it couldn't be track stored next to other non-ride related stuff?

I am not saying it definitely is ride related but the factvthat it showed up right as track and supports appeared and is located where ride staging is currently going on suggest that it may be.

You have to look closely to spot them but there is currently track and supports strung all the way around DK to the area between Alpengeist and Le Scoot with good views of them from Alpengeist, Le Scoot, and Invadr as well as from the train. I would guess that at least half of the track and supports are there maybe eve
n all of them.

Or they were taken by any of the other countless people—employees or not—who have had access to that area of the park recently. It was a comfort that so many new people had access today though...

Also, if you want more, a very reckless employee posted video from back there the other day to YouTube. I don't want to link it myself, but it's very easy to find.

From what I've heard, this is correct.
That has to be such a disappointing job to be the employee in charge of installing old props on a brand new ride :( that would just kill my enthusiasm for trying to do a good job

Im sure so many of us would be willing to crowd source some better props for the park to use haha, instead of just dusting off things from 10 years ago

I’m going to be annoyingly hopeful for a second:
I think this can be nice if they took out the old props carefully, stored them nicely, then repainted things as they reinstalled them. Especially if the car and trains end up being themed to the ride and the pre show area is updated some.

So... Maybe the wolf statue is coming back!

Realistically, whatever they do if there's any theming will probably be ok the first few seasons, but the lighting and/or any projection usage will get either broken or outdated... And as long as they get the attendance they're looking for, SEAS won't care.

My understanding is that the vast majority of the interior Curse of DarKastle sets were destroyed when the building was gutted. As far as I know, the only ride-area theming that remains of DarKastle is what could still be seen in place last time the building was open for special events. I have no reason to believe there is anything that could be "reinstalled" even if they wanted to.

I was under the impression that a select few items were relegated to storage instead of getting tossed in the dumpster. Including the wolf statue that was in the queue

The large wolf statue in the middle of the hedge maze part of the queue was seen being trucked off—hopefully to off-site storage, but I don't think that's confirmed by anyone. One of the pair of wolf statues at the entry portal was broken by entertainment. If it still exists, maybe it's reparable? Status of the other is unknown as far as I'm aware.
