My favorite beer would be roughly $130 per a case. Is it really that worth it?

Little Dipper construction has started as of last week. Pictures from SFGAm's facebook page. The Farmers Market is also getting revamped, with new shade structures.

The park has added new photos on their Facebook page.

Construction has started on Little Dipper, with the removal of the BBNP net climb structure in progress.
Pictures also show unrelated construction around Farmers Market (renamed County Fair Food Court) and County Fair Games Gallery.

EDIT: Can't seem to get the link working, so copy and paste

They also posted a picture of Space Shuttle America's removal with the caption "Space Shuttle America has been removed for future expansion."

I'm glad they posted some pictures of the park in the winter! It's always nice to see coasters in the snow and some behind the scenes shots.

Recap:
-Little Dipper going in Bugs Bunny National Park where the climbing structure was. Cars have arrived.
-Space Shuttle America removed for future expansion
-"The County Fair Games have been removed. Why?! Stay tuned to find out."
-"The Farmers Market is being reworked to the County Fair Food Court complete with additional shade structures."

^Even though the County Fair Games was a pretty dead area, with the exception of the Wii area, I hope it is just a renovation. With the work that is being done on the Farmer's Market, the area could look pretty nice. Also, the shade structures going into Farmer's Market will be much appreciated on those hot Illinois days.

Also, with Little Dipper going in to Bugs Bunny National Park, hopefully that area will become popular once again as that section was frequently closed due to a lack of guests.


Hopefully, in addition to what we have seen already, Great America continues to improve and clean up the park like they have the past few years. Some of the buildings in Hometown Square and Orleans Place could use a fresh coat of paint if I remember correctly.

They only took out like 5 County Fair games, there will probably be some more over there. It feels more open, and less spooky without the games because it was always so dark over there...

I hope BBNP will also get popular. The screaming of people on Little Dipper will hopefully get the area in a better mood.

I wish they would have more shaded area under the farmers market. Or have a complete indoor area to keep warm in the colder months and cool in the summer months. Eating outside on Opening day was torture!

Is it just an upgrade to Country Fair... I would love to see them add a path that would connect over to BBNP So I wouldn't have to walk the entire loop (I'm lazy sometimes) but of course that can't happen because the backstage area roads are there
