Truth. And there's only so many indoor eateries at CP with only so much seating room, especially when it's a busy, hot day. The more places to cool off for a spell while you have lunch, the better.

The Coney BBQ at KI is a large building and offers no indoor seating. I'm guessing this will be set up the same way.

Aren't Crystal Rock Café at CPS and the Coney BBQ at KI the same building?

Well, at least we have an answer to the seating at BBQ;

All outdoor. It looks like the seating area is pretty significant, and Hugo's food is sounding even better.

I think we're all ready to see the next map piece revealed now, thanks. :)

Hard to imagine why it’s all outdoor seating when the building looks enormous. I believe it’s all outdoor seating but why is the building so large? I

Could it be to accommodate the large smokers? Or maybe part of the building will be used as a foods warehouse for the back of the park.

I don't think smokers can justify the space, the smoker at famous daves takes up roughly a 10x10 foot space and can handle an impressive amount to meat, last season they smoked roughly every other day most of the year. Capacity wise I would estimate that only 60 percent of the capacity of that smoker and it is used to smoke; pork for pulled pork, brisket, ribs, and half chickens. However if the park is planning to replace the pre cooked BBQ products used in other places in the park with home made that may require additional capacity.

And I think we would all agree that would space well used.

The reason for the building's size is simple - it needs to be that big to efficiently serve lots of people. Sure, it may be less than quarter full on a Tuesday in May, but on a nice Saturday in October?

You did?

I don't recall anyone ever sharing what they saw. I mean, we got some general info, but unless I missed it somewhere I don't remember sharing that.

What was on it?

I'm not quite sure what it could be, all I know is ride operation staff are working there.

So....no one has really commented on this reveal, so I'll jump in.

it's admittingly less exciting than the first, but it does hit on the dedication of the actors that are going to be in place on this island. I'm picturing this part of the journey as sort of the "gateway" to the other inhabitants of the island, with Etta Fox giving visitors some kind of warning about the feuds going on.

Per Tony...

Allegedly, she’s been sent from Frontier Town over to Adventure Island to keep the peace amongst the island camps. But what would even cause them to feud?

This one is obvious. Is Pipescream a roller-coaster or a flat ride?

Guests will be asked to take a side...

I really hope they hire better actors than the ones they had last year.

I wonder if the actors really hope that better guests show up...
