20,000 Leagues Under the Sea - Demolition Continues - July 2004

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea - demolition of Lagoon July 13th(?)2004

The demolition has now begun. Piles of material are heaped up as they tear apart the old decorative setting which once stood underwater. Also, the old loading "dock" area is being torn down. No more rocks poking up out of shallow water and even the facade of the back wall reveals it's steel support frame. It's a sad, sad site. Much has changed since June and it's clearly full-steam ahead on it's demolition.
Thanks to Kevin for taking these photos and permission to use them.

The demolition clearly is continuing at an accelerated pace at this point. These three photos are courtesy of MKT of mkt3000.com He took them on July 20th, 2004. You can see they've torn out part of the track and that heavy equipment is on site. Even the old loading area is gone completely. It's amazing how fast things are going at this point and how much they're tearing it down.

The demolition continues. The sign which used to announce "Fantasyland Character Festival" (see photo from May above) is gone and they're gutting the Lagoon and all it's workings. Work is being done mainly at night from what I understand though sometimes, machinery is heard from behind the wall during the day.


We continue to track the progress of the demolition. Go back to the main page for other month's of progress, the history of the ride and links.
