This just so surprises me about you. Does the skipper not swim?

I think that the park should be changed for some pretty obvious reasons. 1) The newer water parks are huge and River Country would not be able to hold as many people as they do. 2) I think the concept would be sadly lost on a generation that has never seen water holes such as these. Preservation would be best but if I had the money I would use that location as a pirates cove, very similar to some of the themes we have seen with Pirates of the Caribbean being updated. I know this movie has been spread everywhere, but this location has all the potential to be converted in broken down ships, and there could even be some areas where, like in the Magic Kingdom, the actors could come out and do sketches for observers. As far as I know there is still some horse back riding at Fort Wilderness, because I went a few years ago as a gift from my family. There are a lot of things that can be done with the property, and I think that a themed pool would not do River Country justice. It needs to be rethemed and reworked, but I agree it should definitely be reopened.
I still think it should be rehabbed as a cool pool for Ft. Wilderness. They don't have any feature pools over there. With the new Kingdom Tower having its own mini water park; along with Beach Club...it's only fair...
