There was rumor the Bonnie would replace the Jet but I've still yet to see anything I'd consider even close to an official word on that. I'd assume they would need permits if they were going to do any relocation of the Bonnie, doesn't seem like anything is on file.
    Even though it appears to not make sense, serious rumours about the 6 pack not happening this year are floating around. I specifically asked Steve about this in the 'conceptual plan' thread and he did not address the question. There are a few hypothesis about why it would be delayed, but one thing is sure, we'll know soon.

    Oh man, that would be the ultimate cart horse expansion failure... having to reinstall a lift slated for removal because the new lift wasn't a done deal yet because you can't not do it because the hotel is a done deal. That would be crazy.

    Yes, and it seems like it is possible. Why hasn't there been an official announcement of the six pack yet?

    Maybe Jay is taking a page from the Burke play book and treating it like Fight Club.

    Stuff i've heard comes from way up the food chain.

    Never really understood the need for the 6-pack anyway. As mentioned in your previous post, money would be better spent on a new lift in the Ull'r bowl or in the West Bowl. I am not sure if they really want to scrap the 6-pack or simply delay it's construction. If it's the latter, there is something really wrong with their planning as they wasted good money in setting up the power cable last summer.
