-water dark ride (Think water world in Colorado)
-new ride for Timber Tower's location

Reality:

^Of course they are. They are a good coaster for a bridge between a kiddie ride and a thrill coaster, plus it is different from the other attractions at the park.

As for Dollywood, I'm guessing they'll be announcing a new roller coaster similar to Powder Keg at Silver Dollar City for 2014 and a resort hotel for 2015. From what I've heard, the coaster will likely be called Firechaser Express and will feature multiple launches and a dark ride section, but we'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out for sure.
