We can only hope so but I have no idea when. I never have read any credible information on how long that contract is. CP and KD installed theirs before VF so I don’t think we can speculate on VF’s removal until one of those two parks go first. Just doubt CF will surprise us and have VF go first.

Looks like the foundation for Delirious was poured today.

I drove by Valleyfair earlier today and was able to take a pic of the new paint on the older water slides in Soak City. Once they've finished with painting the slides it's going to look so much nicer than before. :)

The slide painting also makes me wonder what the plans for the future of the waterpark are now. I had the feeling that those slides would soon be on the chopping block and something new would be built there, but now that they'll be staying for at least the foreseeable future, it’ll have to be somewhere else.

Suppose things go like this:

2018: Delirous Opens. Heavy machinery comes in and starts scooping out dirt from behind the parking lot and dumping it into the swamp next to Excalibur. Farewell party help for Excalilbur. The return of Enterprise is announced for next year

2019 The new employee road is open. Excalibur is leveled and work switches to flattening the area and the area of the former road. Announcement is another cheap flat

2020 The new parking lot opens with a temporary gate to the back Next years announcement is a huge waterpark expansion

2021 The back of the waterpark is completely redone and the slides are scrapped.

Paint isn't expensive and Valleyfair gets three seasons of it looking nice.

^ As much as I would love Enterprise to return (it was a huge favorite of mine as a kid when visiting VF), I am thinking Delirious is the modern day replacement for it. Not the same but similar enough. We shall see.

Don't see any evidence of VF getting an RMC Raptor right now, but if we do by chance get one in the future I'd be happy since they look like thrilling rides. :)
