**TODAY IS MY 50TH BIRTHDAY! I'd love it if you'd subscribe to our super fun YouTube channel!! Watch the video, give us a thumbs up and subscribe!!**

This video was uploaded and posted on JOHNíS 50TH BIRTHDAY!

What better way to celebrate than to think about his Silver Dollar City memories! You can join in on the fun!

Leave your comments and share your memories of Silver Dollar City 20 or 30 years ago...or more! What did John miss? Did any of his memories from his 50 year old brain fail him?

John and the kiddos tour Silver Dollar City and John recalls what's new, what is gone and how the park is different than it was 20 or 30 years ago.

John used to work in the parking lot, which has gone through many changes. His dad, Bob Burton, worked in Personnel and at the Silver Dollar City Foundation for 27 years, and his sister Amanda has worked there for many years as well!

A CAN'T MISS TPF! TRAVEL video comes out FRIDAY!

A Tour of EVERY RIDE and Attraction at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri!

We had a blast recording this one. To be notified every time a new video is uploaded, subscribe and click the bell on our YouTube channel here:

Also already scheduled is SWEETS AND TREATS at Silver Dollar City featuring every place that has yummy snacks and desserts in the park!

AND, we just recorded a video highlighting everything that has changed since I worked at SDC 30 years ago. Well, everything that I can remember at least, as I move through the park! My dad worked there 27 years in the personnel department and I worked in the parking lot and my sister currently works there...over 20 years...and I started vacationing there at least 40 years ago! So, I definitely have some memories. That video will be fun. Oh, and be sure to leave lots of comments on that one with things I missed that you remember from long ago!

Here's an updated video of our new murder mystery attraction, Sagas, with the audio corrected:

Everybody will begin the event together as the scenerio is presented to them while they enjoy hot drinks and sweets. Then, they will move out in teams up to 8 in number to various rooms as they search for clues, solve puzzles, investigate evidence and interact with actors.


2019 NEW MYSTERY attraction coming to BRANSON, MISSOURI! Sagas, Escape Code and The Axe Game

The summer of 2019 there's a BRAND NEW ATTRACTION coming to Branson, Missouri!

Sagas is a unique compilation of mystery theater and escape room entertainment. Whether you are looking for a fun team-building activity or you just want a little after-dinner entertainment, Sagas will prove to be an event to remember. The affair begins with hot drinks and wrapped sweets as you prepare for a time of mystery solving. Then grab a flashlight, hunt for clues, discover secrets and solve puzzles as you rush to solve the mystery! Interact with actors as you move from room to room, but trust no one. There is a killer among you!

Our first saga, The Windsor Heir, commences as you and your team are called in to investigate the murder of Charles Windsor, the wealthy beneficiary of the family fortune. Charles Windsor had countless enemies, but who would want him dead? With no wife or children, who served to benefit from his demise? Itís up to you to determine the motive, discover the murder weapon and hopefully catch a killer!

Sagas is the perfect event for groups, birthday parties for adults and older children (aged 8 and over), school and church groups, corporate groups and anybody looking for a one-of-a-kind adventure.

Specifically designed for groups of 2 to 40 players, you will interact with live actors, enjoy coffee, tea and treats and spend approximately two hours solving the mystery.

Also, Amy takes you on a tour of The Axe Game and Escape Code, which, along with Sagas, make up three exciting attractions for the entire family that can't be missed!

Right on. I'll post some future vids then. Appreciate it!
Blessings all!

Going forward, we definitely want to respect this site and it's focus. The content does seem to be more facts and figures than vlog style content. If folks want to subscribe to our YouTube channel, that's great. But, I'll refrain from sharing SDC or Branson videos or other posts on this site. I appreciate what you all have developed here! Thanks everyone!

So, it seems the only thing we got wrong was the guards, right? But, we did admit on the video that we weren't sure if they were new or not. The other stuff just went unnoticed. I don't believe we gave any wrong info. That's where your comments stumped us. We do trust that folks will give us grace if we make a mistake every now and then. We definitely are human and far from perfect.

There are a bunch of travel vlogs out there that aren't meant to be documentaries or require any research. They are basically heading to theme parks, the beach, on cruises, etc with a camera in hand. They just record their adventure and share their experiences. It's super common. No expert analysis, no research, nothing like that at all. That's what we do too with our own personality. We have some Disney World vlogs like that as well. We rode Pirates of the Caribbean and wondered if certain scenes were new or not. It's the same approach we take on most all of our videos, including this one.

It's basically the Burton family out having fun and sharing some stuff we discover along the way. Again, there are TONS of YouTubers who do this as well. There aren't any rules about what you must address in order to upload videos. Creators can focus on pretty much anything they want.

As an example, I'm editing our next SDC video right now. We highlight things that kids like. Our kids are in the video, choosing what they want to go on next. We just follow them around and record the fun. We aren't getting into statistics, changes, etc. We don't feature every kids ride. It's just a raw, casual recording of us enjoying SDC.

After thinking through it, Amy and I can't figure out what we might have missed. We'd love to hear from you all, just for kicks. We only mentioned a few things we thought were new. The rest of the commentary was about stuff we were noticing, but didn't identify it as new.

We talked about a general freshening up, fresh paint, etc. Amy wondered if the guards were new, or possibly dressed differently. We weren't sure. I mentioned the buzz saw. The boards at the end and also the air canon were new. There were some new props too.
Again, we didn't research prior as we just wanted to share our raw first experience from a tourists perspective after the refurb. Definitely didn't expect to notice everything.

Thanks very much! We really appreciate that! We are developing a fun community of people who love travel, theme parks, Branson, etc. We really enjoy capturing all the fun!
