Dollywood Unannounces Adventure Mountain

In a surprising move, Dollywood theme park has announced that they will no longer be adding the previously announced Adventure Mountain for the 2009 season.

Citing the economic downturn and the rising cost and availability of basic building materials, the park has decided to push back the attraction to 2010. The park will instead focus on previously announced new entertainment offerings for the 2009 season.

Could this be the first of many delayed additions at U.S. parks due to the economy? Is there more to the story that we don't know? I haven't a clue, but I'm nervously awaiting more announcements like these, I fear.
