Other Parks / Re: Troubles for Disneyland and WDW in the news.

I went to DL back around 1988.  Have thought I would like to take the wife and kid out there, but I guess not.  No way I am paying that much to stand in line for hours on end.

I wish they would put another coaster in there.

I looked it up and all it was was a SDC Galaxi Coaster.  Standard off the shelf.  Meaning that a Maurer SC2000 like the new coaster at Adventureland, could fit in there easily.

I have no idea, I am not familiar with that ride.  As to the nightmare mine, I rode it way back in the early 90s. probably around 93-94 and only vaguely remember it, but what I do remember it was great.  I did not return to FC until maybe 5 or so years ago by which time it was gone.

I sure wish they had not gotten rid of the nightmare mine, or at least put another coaster in there.

I really can't remember all the details.  From what I recall it was a few days later and it still hurt so she went to the Dr and they found the break. 

Yea, I agree it looks like somebody looking for a payday or something to me.  I will tell you this as a fact, my wife broke her tail bone on the log ride there a couple of years back.  When it came down the hill I guess she must have lifted up and when it hit the bottom slammed back down.  We never reported it or looked for fame, attention, or a payday.

Can I ask why you did not report it ? If not only to alert the PTB that maybe there was a malfunction or a bad transport vehicle. ? It could have kept someone else from being hurt, and recover any medical cost you may have had. Sorry, but I would have been looking to recover my medical costs for sure.

Even though I was there last Saturday I am thinking about making a trip up as some point over the holiday toward the end of the week/weekend.  How busy do you guys think it will be?

We were there today arrived before opening.  Left at noon after watching the swashbuckling show, when that let out it seemed really busy so we left.  Lots of rides were down including PK and the train.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Season pass upgrade
« on: June 23, 2019, 03:48:32 PM »
It really seems strange that they seem to allow all these other free tickets to be upgraded but not the BAF passes

My guess is that there would be too big of a loss of revenue if they allowed BAF passes to be upgraded. For our family of 3 passes, we could just buy a single kids season pass and then use two of the BAF passes on our first visit to upgrade to 2 adult season passes at significant savings. This would be easy to plan for since we know that we will have the BAF passes. The other free tickets that can be upgraded arenít a for sure thing for most people so upgrading with them canít be planned for that well. Also, Iím guessing that most people that upgrade the free passes wouldnít have bought a season pass otherwise so SDC is gaining revenue from them.

Donít really anything to base this on other than speculation.

That would be my guess also.

It sure does seem strange to be able to upgrade any free pass to a season pass.  So if you used a $25 BAF ticket, those can be upgraded to a season pass. So that would put it at $75 which is somewhat of a discount.

Dang it, I was up in Springfield last night for work.  Got in around 4pm.  Thought about running down to the city for a couple of hours then driving back to Springfield but didn't.
