Construction/Rumors / Re: SDC's 2018 Project(s) and Park Developments

The pictures are showing up HUGE on my computer after I posted them. If its showing up like that for everyone else, can someone tell me how to make them smaller?

Hi, I went in and edited the bbcode. If you put the beginning of the image code as: [img width=#] or [img height=#] with # being the max pixels across or up & down, it'll resize and then people can click on the photo to make it the original size.

Pro-tip for readers: If you right-click on an image and choose "open in new tab," it should be rescaled within your browser window in a new tab, so you can see it larger but not TOO large.

What if the on-ride camera is actually on the train/car itself? The concept art shows a kind of console in front of the riders with those rolling number things.... They could easily put in a camera there. I mean, they were able to do on-ride video on Wildfire by putting the camera on the train itself...

Oh wow, that's so cool! Thanks for posting this!

I had seen something similar a few weeks ago where a guy took a bunch of super old photos of resorts and then recreated them how they look now. Ever since I read that, I've had this idea of doing the same thing for SDC. I own quite a few old postcards and such, and there are plenty of other pictures available online that I could recreate. I just gotta be able to make it to the park at some point. :D

It looks like that "platform" goes into the station.... So could it be a single-rider/Trailblazer/etc entrance?

Hmmm... "Time flies"?

I like the idea of paying up-front and then getting the free refills for the season.

Then again, I very rarely fill my mug with anything other than water (trying to keep hydrated), but if I had free refills, I might be more likely to sit down with a soda and possibly buy a snack (fries or whatever) to go with it while I chill.

August 16th absolutely cannot come soon enough! I just can't take much more of the speculation; I gotta have answers!  ;D

On a side note, have fun reading over on the KY3 Facebook page, lol @ the comments on the article.

Oh dear. I made the mistake of doing just that. I swear, these people have never priced a vacation to a theme park before or something. I've done a LOT of research on theme park pricing, and SDC is absolutely one of the best deals out there.

Wow! I can't believe I've been a part of this community for a whole decade! And I've known Shave for even a bit longer 'cause we met on the 1Branson boards and threw around ideas about an SDC-specific site. Shave put it together and BAM, the rest is history!

Congrats to SDCFans for making it TEN YEARS!!! And here's to many more!

Amazon is giving Walmart some stiff competition. There is always gonna be someone who knocks down the king of the hill. When I was a kid, no one could touch Sears or JC how time changes things. Anyone remember Montgomery Ward, lol!

I am *just* old enough to remember Montgomery Ward! My grandpa always called it "Monkey Ward," LOL.

Oh wow, that was an awesome article! Thanks for linking it!

Pretty sure drones aren't allowed over the park anyway; didn't some guy who posted drone video of SDC on YouTube get in trouble for it last year?

To be honest, I'm not all that sad about the show itself leaving, as I've not been impressed with it ever since I read the book. But I'd love to see the homestead and all the other stuff survive.

I like mhguy's idea of building a resort there; keep what's there and just add on. Maybe make it a cabin-based resort?

If they did historical productions I might attend. Being a agnostic the bible stuff just is not my cup of tea. Guess you could say I am not the typical Branson God and Country demographic.

Same here (agnostic-atheist). But I'm a writer, so even if I don't get anything spiritually out of stories about Moses or Jonah, I do get things out of them when it comes to symbolism/etc. So I've actually been rather interested in checking out these Sight & Sound shows, not just because they're stories from my childhood that I still appreciate even now, but also because of the technicality of the shows. They look AMAZING. I mean, live animals and what-not? Wow. I wish I hadn't missed the Noah show.

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.
