They had specifically said some of those things were going away.

Yes, the ads for this year say it's the last year for It's a Wonderful Life but it is mentioned in the press release.

I am looking forward to the expansion of shows and music. Since we don't ride as much anymore, the expansion of music and shows gives us a reason to continue being season pass holders.

From searching I have discovered that there have been Price Cutter Thursdays in December in past years.
Last year there were also some days of $40 tickets at the gate in December.

The show replacing it sounds like a World Fest sampler platter show.  So think of the things they’ve had in the past at World Fest and cram it all into one show.

So it's going to be Christmas around the world or something like that replacing It's A Wonderful Life?

Noticed at the park last week the signs for the final season of It's a Wonderful Life (which we speculated may be going to the Showboat for 2019 due to a 2017 survey).

Do we know what is replacing It's A Wonderful Life in 2019?

Our trip was last minute -- we called Tuesday and arrived Wednesday. The king was available for 2 nights which is what we needed. There was a large group of golfers there mid-week. I think they had 16 rooms.

Didn't ask about the move. We offered a meal Wednesday night but she had already eaten.

Just got back from a 2 night mid-week stay at Classic. Didn't see much of the owners. Noticed some more minor changes. The room we stayed in with a king bed used to have an arm chair; it had been replaced with another bedside table. K.D. said she would let us know if she moved on.

OK, That just sux!! 

She is so overwhelmed. Last week 125 hours for her!!  I can't even imagine... 6:30 am to 11pm or so.!! >:( >:(.

I will make a call tomorrow and see if we can get the TEMP motel deal rolling before the 20th..   That way if we try to stay at Classic and there is a problem, we have a back-up plan..

I will post tomorrow as soon I get a go ahead..

Bear with me people, I will get this ironed out..!!

It is one thing to work 125 hours a week if you own a business. But 125 hours a week breaks the law whether you are hourly or salaried. Sounds like the US Department of Labor, wage and hour division should be notified.

Looks like Heritage USA is a no-go for Dogpatch. An eviction notice has been filed in court due to non-payment. Water and electric services have also been cut off due to non-payment. More details from KTLO radio:

We were there 8/9 for a one night stay. Breakfast is now just served in the lobby, downstairs breakfast room is closed. Car in lobby is gone. Rate was honored. Atmosphere seems different.

Also, it is up to the captain to make the call about weather and the tour.

I saw video from another DUCK on Table Rock during the same storm; it was able to get back to shore. Turns out there was a third DUCK out during the storm but it was on Taneycomo.

A family of 4 from Arkansas lost 2 members.  The Mom didn't go....sister made it but the Dad and brother didn't.  Just heartbreaking :'(

Heartbreaking indeed.  Here is what the church posted - a request from the minister.  It really brings things home.

Quote
Please pray for the Smith Family of the Osceola church of Christ. Last night Steve (the father and husband) and Lance (his son) died in the tragic Duck accident in Branson, Missouri. Steve was a deacon at Osceola, and I had just baptized Lance, who was 15, late last year. This past Sunday I finally was able to get Lance to do a devotional and break out his shell! Attached is one of the last photos of him I know exists. He was like a son to me, and I will miss him greatly. He was the perfect example of humility and compassion! He cared about everyone. My heart breaks, but I know where they are, and I know that I will see them again!

I hope some of this brings peace to their family, friends, and the rest of us who look along with astonishment at the personal tragedy experienced by the surviving mother and daughter.

There was an article about this family on the front page of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. The mother was at Branson Landing and called the father to say he was late in picking her up. He answered, explained the situation, and said it didn't look good. He said his goodbyes, told his wife he loved her and the kids, and the phone went dead. Mother said both kids were good swimmers. Daughter who survived has a concussion due to being thrown onto boat deck during rescue.

This is the lead story on NBC Today show this morning with several videos and interviews:

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/unknown-number-people-killed-when-boat-crashes-missouri-lake-n893011?icid=today_hp_NBCtopheadlines

Today also had a segment about previous incidents with Ducks:

https://www.today.com/news/how-safe-are-duck-boats-deadly-accident-missouri-lake-renews-t133844

This is such a tragedy.

We rode the Ducks once on Table Rock and once on Taneycomo. Life jackets were in a rack above us. No one wore a life jacket during the tours.
