sdcfan88: Those are definitely much better examples of what SDC could do with technology. Ever since Baron 1898 was announced, I've been itching to see SDC implement a similar ride because WOW it is awesome!

Omg. For all the hype, this is definitely a letdown. Like, there are POVs on YT that are cutting off the end to keep up the whole "What's in the shed?" mystery but... yeah. Not that great for that much hype.

This kid's reaction to the shed at the end is a good summary of how disappointing this seems to be:

Now, I'll give them credit where it's due - the coaster itself looks fun, and the train cars have excellent theming. It's just that hype buildup for a screen-heavy brake run.... Yeah, I dunno.

It was also just announced that they will probably have to cease work on the Spirit of 76 project for the time being due to funding. They've hardly even started...

Shoot. I was wondering why the website for the project had disappeared! Thankfully, the project plan is still available to read here:

I really hope they can get the funding worked out; I've been looking forward to what they have planned!

Well, Brad Thomas just tweeted this image...  Wild Mountain?

Thank you for posting this, straightshooter! Wild Mountain is one of the titles that Herschend filed a trademark for recently - February 14 of this year, in fact:

Are the little tree's on either side new?

They were there in September last year; not sure about before that.

Here's a good shot I found on Instagram of it:

It isn't about the time... I just do not like my picture taken by anyone. Just a personal quirk... maybe part of the native american side coming out. I will opt out on shore too... hopefully won't be a fight because I really want to see the Country on the lake show.

One of my best friends is Choctaw, and we actually just recently discussed that exact topic, so I understand 100% what you mean and I hope for your sake that in future they don't push you to have your photo taken the way they did before.

Apparently the journalist isn't quite up to speed about how to read trademark filings. When I read the article, I was confused by them saying "Top Dog" and "Barke" were filed under the same category as "Time Traveler" because I had just looked up & read the trademark filings a couple weeks ago after we got wind of the "Time Traveler" filing.

So I just went and looked up the trademarks from Herschend again, and I was right; "Top Dog" and "Barke" are not listed under "roller coaster."

"Top Dog" has two filings, one under each of the following categories; "Barke" has a single filing with both of the following listed in the one filing:

1) "Amusement park and theme park services; Animation production services; Book publishing; Entertainment services in the nature of live stage show performances in the nature of plays and performances in the form of musical theater; Magazine publishing; Publication of children's books; Publishing books in the field of motion pictures, television shows and multimedia entertainment content; Entertainment services in the nature of development, creation, production and post-production services of multimedia entertainment content; Entertainment services in the nature of development, creation, production, distribution, and post-production of motion pictures, television shows and multimedia entertainment content featuring animation"

2) "Visual recordings and audiovisual recordings featuring music and animation related to a costumed character"


Now what IS interesting is that there are two new filings.

"Wild Mountain" was filed on February 14, 2017. "Mountain Wings" was filed on February 16, 2017. Both are under the category "ENTERTAINMENT SERVICES IN THE NATURE OF AN AMUSEMENT PARK RIDE, NAMELY, A ROLLER COASTER".

Now THOSE could perhaps be red herrings....?

Yeah, I didn't even know there was spellcheck on here, LOL. I always assumed it was my browser (Opera, previously Chrome).

Being autistic, I am an EXTREMELY picky eater. So looking at the menu for the new restaurant has me REALLY excited because of the level of customization available for your meal. It might end up becoming my favorite place to eat at the park.

I usually see someone using the fast pass everyday I come. I hate them. Most people call them "cheaters" because they are cheating the line even though they may come once a year or less. A line is defined as "A formation of people or things one behind  another". This is a system that works and has worked for a long time in humanity. By cheating the system, it may good for you or feel good to you, but it is bad for all of us and you will eventually feel guilty or karma will catch up. There is a line for a reason: to let people do something they want to do which is 1st come, 1st serve. By cutting in line, there really is no line anymore. If someone saves a space in line and that person or those people come after they got in line, it is cutting because it puts everyone from that point back, farther back then where they got in line. That is why I dont allow saving spots in line and will make sure an empolyee of the ride knows and try my best to get you kicked out of the park or at least kicked out of line. It is not fair to anybody. If you want to ride, but your family is somewhere in line, it dont matter. You must go to the back of the line like everyone else. We all waited in line and you have to as well. You are no more important than the rest of us. Cutting in line, to me, is like kicking me in the nuts or robbing me, like a democrat does.

Dude. Really? I highly advise not going to any Disney park, then, because if you're that hateful toward fastpasses, you would NOT like Disney.

Also, lets lay off the random political comments? That was completely off-topic.

They also mention on their site that there will be space for them to have live music performances before and after the movies.

The article says that movies will cost between $8 to $20, depending on which seats you choose. That seems to be pretty much on par with other movie theaters that offer general as well as premiere seating.

Just for comparison to an actual drive-in, the double-feature drive-in in Independence charges $10 per adult, but kids 11 and under are free.

They're advertising this on their website as a "theme park" experience. I'm reading/looking at their website, and I gotta say.... I SO wanna go to this when it opens!!!
