Today we've got a great update from the Pacific Northwest and Wild Waves and Enchanted Village where they are making some great changes this season with a couple of new rides and general improvements.
Be sure to check out the great update from Gary below.

Looking at the new gate that was built for direct entry into Enchanted Village (the ride side), as part of their change for this season where you can either pay for just the amusement park side, or you can get the Water Park/Amusement Park combo.
Inside of the park looking out towards the new gate. You can also see some of the pieces for the enterprise and S&S tower they're adding this year.
From the location of the new gate looking into the park (as a sort of "this is what you'll see when you enter")
The Scrambler has been moved up the hill towards Timberhawk. The all new Enterprise is being built in the old spot for the Scrambler.
Part of the S&S tower that has not yet been installed. They have not yet named it, but had a contest to do so, and they have narrowed it down to three choice for a vote. The names are Brain Drain (leader the last time I had checked the voting page), Summit Plummet, and Shooting Star.
The S&S Tower is going up and should give a great view.
The enterprise awaiting assembly. The supports are near the scrambler, and the other parts are in the parking lot near the new gate.
Over at Timberhawk they demolished the old picture booth that has not been in used for some time, and replaced it with a wood hawk carving.
The wave pool has waves once again after not having them for a few years (which was one of the major complaints on the parks Facebook page)
Thanks to Gary for a great update from this out of the way park. Looks like they are making some great changes and additions.
If you are are going to be up in the Seattle area be sure to check out "Emerald City History Walks" where you can hang out with Gary and learn some great history of the area.
Today it's time to venture back to Colombia with Chris as his adventures continue at Parque del Cafe which of course means Montaña Rusa and Krater as well as a whole bunch of other random fun stuff for you to enjoy. Be sure your'e all caught up with "Colombian Adventures with Chris: Part One" first. - Gregg

So here’s our one and only picture of Karting Cross and it’s coaster, because the park was closed. The helpful guy at the front said that the restaurant is open, not the park. He’ll update the website, he told our taxi driver. It actually seemed like a cool place, and we had a free day coming up, so maybe we’ll give it another shot (long story short, it rained, we didn’t).
Editors Note: Come on Chris, it was only $150 to ride a coaster? Enthusiast fail. ;)
That's going to wrap it up for Part Two of Chris' amazing trip. We'll have Part Three up soon which includes much more from Parque del Cafe and of course more Montaña Rusa including some awesome nerd shots for you to enjoy.
Thanks again to Chris for sending us these awesome pics. Be sure to let Chris know how much you appreciate him sharing his report.
