The format for the event is the same as last year. Free roam with designated tour spots. We love this format. Going at our own pace, we can wander around a bit and choose where we want to go.

Alas, this structure remains untouched for another year. The Coke redemption center on the other side, however, is becoming a more all-purpose redemption center.

The employee restrooms seemed to have been removed in order to have this structure not stick out into the midway.
