Dollywood Discussion / Re: Quick question about After 3 Next Day Free
« on: February 18, 2018, 03:49:29 AM »
According to a blog that's being posted (see the Dollywood thread on TPR) the promotion is being axed as of the 2018 season. Wonder if SDC is following suit. I'm still waiting for the day they start charging for all parking at SDC.

Eating crab legs and marathoning Star Trek: Voyager. (yeah I am a huge nerd, deal with it lmao)

Superbowl is meh for me. Prefer College FB. Granted I do pop in to catch a few commercials to see if anything is interesting.

Now I am not sure how to feel about this. That was one of my favorite quiet areas of the park. I guess I will see when I go on opening day next month.

Here is the video in question: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5hj1TPLfvc

Notice the lack of spin with the cars versus the animations we previously saw, granted its partially because there is no weight variance to cause the spinning but that is also part of the magnetic braking system that will control it, I do still see quite a few people being apprehensive about this. I believe it was discussed before on here but I think to help with this issue, the park should market and word it more along the lines of pivoting or turning versus using the term spinning. Again these are NOT gonna be your teacup type spinning cars.  :)

And note too that those launches are looking quite a bit more intense than what the animations showed as well.  :D

I would REALLY hate if they got rid of all the Pines and shade trees in that segment. I am hoping it was at least spared if the rest of that area was razed. I am thinking there might be an uproar if they got rid of the skillets tho. There was always a decent line and a lot of people eating from there.

This is the only reaction I can make for this:



They are obviously making a knee jerk reaction to avoid any controversy due to the current political climate. But unfortunately it is probably a good idea on their part to be proactive.

If anybody is looking for a job with mechanical/electrical experience, SDC is looking to hire people for Time Traveler. https://hfecorp-openhire.silkroad.com/epostings/index.cfm?fuseaction=app.jobinfo&jobid=8878&company_id=16687&version=6&source=ONLINE&jobOwner=992276&aid=1

Wow! They actually went through with Demo-ing it! R.I.P. Poke Salad Mary's. Another classic SDC structure bites the dust. They were actually open the last time I was up there and one of the employees said that the pathways were originally gonna pass thru there but they decided to keep and re-purpose the building and thus placed the pathway behind it instead.

But apparently not. Maybe they found it was structurally unsound?

Shot this around August.

I really was considering it as it would be a first for me but those temps got a big fat no from me, unfortunately.

Probably due to it being post Christmas and the fact non of the rides are operational at these temps.

They got snow on the ground at SDC? That has always been a bucket list thing for me to get photos with snow on the ground there with their Christmas decor.

Some were toying with the idea that this area is gonna be part of a new themed area and for a future Mack coaster that will tie into it sometime in 2020. I am skeptical though even though HFEC has always done a two park deal with attractions in the past.
