General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: 2018 Trip Reports
« on: March 22, 2018, 06:23:35 PM »
I am so excited to hear that Flooded Mine is getting a lot of riders! I know it seems to be even more buried with the new buildings, but at the same time, anyone who sits down to eat is likely to see the ride and think "oh hey, we should ride that".

I noticed bluegrass pop song cover in SirWillows video in the station.  Can't remember exactly what it was but it had to do with "Time".  I was wondering if all the music would but have the time

It was "Turn Back Time" by Cher. I was absolutely loving hearing these covers; I heard "Free Fallin'" by Tom Petty near the end of the stream on SDC's FB page.

Far as I could hear, the covers I heard were all instrumentals.

What I gathered from the announcement vid on YouTube, all proceeds from this event go toward their "Dream Big, Do Good" campaign. So, to me, this sounds like a charity event and not a "money grab."

Yeah, I saw about that. That's a bit sad. I really do hope SDC keeps its parking free....

BTW, an update on my friend: he ended up just getting season passes so they wouldn't have to worry about times and stuff.

Next you'll tell us there is no Santa Claus!  :'(  I'd like to see The Pinkerton Man come back to replace the Wild West Show but with Time Traveler next to Echo Hollow I'm not sure that will happen.

Well technically there is no Santa Claus after December 23rd at Silver Dollar City

Good Grief!  I had to zoom in 200% on my desk top to even see that!

What I do when people use tiny font is I copy it and then paste it either into the address bar on my browser or into Notepad so I can read it. :-D

Branson Talk / Re: New Name for Dixie Stampede
« on: January 10, 2018, 10:41:50 AM »
In the KY3 article covering this, they mentioned that there are plans to build in locations outside America. So in foreign markets, it would make more sense to call it "Dolly Parton's Stampede" because people overseas are more likely to know who Dolly is versus what "Dixie" means.

Personally, I like the change. *shrugs*

I received it today, too! I haven't gotten one in quite a while, so I was so excited to see it!

I'm still really bummed about it being the last year of the Wild West Show...

Well, boo. I LOVED the Wild West Show; we went and saw Dixie Stampede that same trip, and I loved SDC's show WAY more! And I absolutely ADORE It's A Wonderful Life! My friends and I went to see it opening season and loved it so much, we watched it a second time that day. I've never really been a huge fan of the movie, but I love the show.

Personally, I think it was a mistake to get rid of World Fest, and now they're getting rid of these. They're slowly getting rid of all the shows I actually like at the park.

I wonder how much of the influx of visitors for Christmas in Midtown are people who'd never been to SDC before but were looking for a place to see something similar to the Osbourne Lights. I know I saw a LOT of people on various Disney forums complaining that those lights went away, and at least one well-known Disney Park Youtuber (TimTracker) did a multi-video series on Branson & SDC, highlighting CiM and the food and stuff.

Wish I was in Branson today; I'd give anything to be back in 30+ degree weather... It's -1 degrees where I live currently. I had to sleep on the couch 'cause our living room is the only room in our old house that actually warms up and stays warm overnight....!

Branson Talk / Re: New Showboat Branson Belle survey
« on: December 25, 2017, 07:28:34 PM »
Based on the video I saw of the current Christmas show on the Belle that TimTracker did, that would be an *excellent* idea to do one of those classics instead. And it'd be pretty easy for them to do either Christmas Carol or Wonderful Life since they already have scripts/songs/etc for the ones at the park.

In that first photo, it almost looks like they've got actual people in the back car...

I'm looking at a map, and if the "future 4-lane loop highway" is 465 to the west and the Henning Forest is to the east, I'm thinking the area in question is somewhere near Mutton Hollow?

Honestly, politics aside, I really don't see how they could manage to make a successful theme park so close to SDC... It's only 45min away, right?

Oh dear... I found their Facebook page... and I found info on the guy helming this... and info on a previous "Heritage USA" that he says isn't remotely related but obviously is...

All I will say is that I'll be sticking to Branson and Silver Dollar City, thank you very much. :)
