According to the to  Orlando Business Journal, the park is expected to expand 2.28 acres with plans for a new guest area, which apparently includes the first new water ride in nearly a decade.

Not a lot of info is available at the moment, but the water ride being considered is "a new family raft ride" which would include an "elevated flume/track."
