Construction/Rumors / Re: Ride Survey 09.11.17

I didn't get this survey this week but I got another one about the overall future of the park. I did start a thread about that. Was a very comprehensive survey about rides, attractions, food, entertainment, areas of the park.

Got a new survey today about SDC which was different from ones I have received in the past. Asked how many times I had been in the past 12 months, wanted to know what I used for my most recent admission (season pass, one day ticket, etc.). Then there were questions about the 3 things I never wanted to change at SDC -- fill in the blank. Then 3 things I would like to see refreshed or replaced -- fill in the blank. Check off up to 10 things that were musts for you at SDC, check off things you could live without. There were other questions where you could really make comments.  Questions covered rides, shows, food, attractions (McHaffie Homestead, Wilderness Church, School, Grandfather's Mansion), areas (Grand Exposition, Half Dollar Holler, Fireman's Landing).

We went to the Restless Heart concert Friday night, thoroughly enjoyed it. Very thankful that Echo Hollow is opening early so that you don't have to stand in line for hours. I would say it was about 98% full. Last year we attended all 3 nights but chose not to do so this year since Diamond Rio and Lonestar were repeats from last year.

It took us the longest time to get back to our vehicle after a concert than it ever has. It was really tight near the scooter/stroller rental booth due to all of the scooters parked in front of the booth. I will be glad when the entrance area is redone so the bottlenecks aren't so bad when there are large crowds entering or exiting.

Made a quick trip to the park on Thursday July 29th. Arrived about 7:45 which was just in time to go to Echo Hollow for the show. Got some frozen lemonade at one of the Echo Hollow concession stands (turned out to be lemon flavored water with 2 big chunks of ice, and very little slush -- we have not had good luck with frozen lemonade at any stand this year). We truly enjoyed the Echo Hollow show -- first time since Chosen Few left that we have not left before the show was over. Thought the cast was good, a great variety of music, and the pace was good. Enjoyed the fireworks at the end of the show.

Read in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette that the 27 year old Georgia Cyclone wooden roller coaster at Six Flags Over Georgia will be closing later this month. It will be torn down to make room for a new ride.

I thought the couple of times we had to wait 30 minutes for a tram in the hot summer sun was bad but 53 minutes???
