I haven't been able to get full details. I generally check into the park before Nor Easter but seeing I was not allowed to attend I waited.

They are indeed rehabbing the ride I have not gotten any confirmation about the ride being expanded size-wise but they do have plenty of room to do so.  They will be getting new cars, I heard 4 passenger, and a new targeting system the new Humbug targets are already at the park.  This is a great move since the ride is very popular.

Same here, The upgrade is much bigger then I had thought. hears it will have 14 rooms with not only new targets but a few animatronics.

to think when My family asked story land about ever having a new dark ride the response was they would have to see how This one dose. Obviously its doing very well if htey are willing to invest heavely in it.

Wow, when did that happen?

This is a much bigger project then I expected. New targets, cars, and custom animatronics. It's a very big upgrade.

The Switch of park GMS happened a few weeks before COVID hit and when we did that online video interview during lock downs he talked about ti a little bit. He was offered a position at the parent company and still has an office at the park, but Larry is a great guy and does amazing things and cares about the park!
