They tried to charge a higher rate when my husband made a reservation last week. He said, no, that's not what I have been paying. He gave them the rate we had been paying, and they honored it.

In the whatever category, we were watching TV there Thursday night, and the cable went out around 11:15 and was still off the next morning. The message on the screen said no signal. The person at the desk was not concerned when we reported it when we checked out.

We went on Thursday the 11th. In the park shortly after 10 am. Stopped at the bathroom by Old Time Photos. Women's bathroom needed a deep cleaning -- several stalls had stuff swiped on the walls (puke, spilled drinks, etc.)

Had no trouble getting into the 10:30 saloon show -- really liked the new show, cast seemed into it, about 90 % full. From there we got right into FITH. Really sad that there was no audio, very strange. Then exited and went right into the Opera House for the 11:30 Cirque show. It was enjoyable and again about 90% full. From there we got some Chesters Chips (price increase from last year) and sat at the Lumbercamp dining area.

Stopped at the Riverfront bathroom -- stall walls and doors there needed cleaning, too, even more so than the other bathroom. Walked through the Grand Exposition and then went to FM. Rode it and walked back to Red Gold for the Phoenix Fire show. It was okay but I wouldn't go again if it returns next year. It was about 90 % full.

Then we walked back to the Dockside Theater for the Paint Jam, enjoyed it, about 80% full. RiverBlast was shut down due to a malfunction. Heard an announcement that they would try to get the people off the boats as soon as possible. The boats were stalled just before the return to the station.

Saw 2 school groups, one was a choir that performed near the ticket booths just before opening. Park really was not crowded. We didn't see the jugglers or the harpists (seems like the same performers just keep getting rebranded every year or 2) or the pogo stick guys. We heard the one man band briefly as we were exiting the park -- not impressed.

When I got home Friday I had a guest experience survey waiting for me in my email. In the comment section I went into detail about the bathroom cleanliness issue. However, I forgot to mention the issue with no sound on FITH.

Next visit will be during Bluegrass and BBQ.

FYI -- if you have been using the 1-800 number to make reservations, it has been disconnected. The number is 417-334-6991.

We like Black Oak Grill at the Landing when we want a large lunch -- prices are lower than in the evening -- and lunch prices last until 3 pm. Recommend the meatloaf.

We also like Reeds Spring Pizza. Hungry Hunter out by Table Rock Dam is good for breakfast.

Branson Tri-Lakes just published an article (free reading)  about the removal of the Lost River. The article also has a timeline of the rides at SDC plus mentions some that have come and gone such as BuzzSaw Falls.

I overlooked this thread so posted in the other one. K.D.'s last day at Classic was March 8. She is going to work at the Hughes Brothers Music Show.

It's a large spinning swing according to a Branson Tri-Lakes article published in February.

What magazine?

For years there was a card in the season pass packet for you to select a magazine: Midwest Living, Family Circle, or a few other selections. You filled out the card and sent it in and got the magazine for a year.

There was an $8 off coupon in the season pass packet but it has to be used at the Stampede between February 22 and sometime in May. The coupon was good for up to 4 people.

Did this year's season pass extras include the card for the magazine subscription?

Maybe you can check out on what's going on with the remodeling at the Cascades Inn and what's going on with the
destruction of the old Ramada Inn by Dick Clark's American Bandstand Theater?

This is absolutely based on nothing - but what if new FITH was placed over by FL?

The Fire in the Hole theme relates to FL...
