Construction/Rumors / Re: SDC's 2019 Project(s) and Park Developments

Wow, much nicer than the old deck that was behind there before, but now the front looks so much smaller? Of course they have a long ways to go still. Kind of looks like they will put in an awning or something to make it more of a traditional concert stage.

I'm excited to see them start announcing some big new events out of this thing. Must have some interesting plans for it.


They already have announced some bigger plans for Echo Hollow.  A concert every night during Bluegrass & Barbecue, plus 13 back to back concerts during country music days.

Woah! I can't believe they have so many days closed in December! What's going on with that?

I'm confused..   

It looks to me like they are closed on mon-tues the first 3 weeks.  (just like always)

Open mon before christmas....

closed tue-wed for christmas,  then back for the big finish...

thats only 8 days....???   Only closed 1 day more than 2018.???     isnt that typical? 


I think you are still looking at 2018 Sanddunerider.   Look at the date on top and go forward with the arrow to 2019.  By the calendar they will be open 22 days in 2018 and 14 days in 2019.   Wow!  That really don't make any sense at all considering how crowded they are now.  What would we be looking at.....35,000 plus every Saturday in Dec. 2019?

Here is a picture of a map from 1971 of SDC.

Bring back the shot tower!  ;D

Next to the Shot Tower is the Outdoor Market, which would be the Taffy Shop today.   Can anyone on here describe this in any way?  I myself do not remember it, and just wondered if they sold fresh produce or what.  Any thoughts on this?

I am not certain of the exact date, but all of my black & white photos point to a time period in the 60's.   The earliest a walkway through where the Kettle Corn is today would be about 1977.   I am pretty sure that is when the Deep Woods opened, which would be the same year the Diving Bell opened in that area.

Here is a slide/picture from I would say mid 1960's.   I believe it was taken where the corkscrew pass is today.....just to the left as you are going down.   Miss Kate's quilt shop is located there today.

This is actually next to the railroad crossing, across the road from the current Kettle Corn.  Today it is just a room for sweepstakes entries and an Ancestry.com kiosk (last I saw).

I do remember the broom shop being at that location, but that would have been much later than the mid 1960's picture.  At that time there was not even a walkway in the Kettle Corn area.   If I remember correctly the first walkway would have been about the same time the Deep Woods area was built.   Here is a picture of a map from 1971 of SDC.   If you look the train locomotive is parked between the Marmaros Inn and the broom shop.  The Marmaros Inn is the same building as Bears At The Holler is today.   This was pretty much the map I was using to decide where the Broom Shop was.   I still could be wrong because the picture was even earlier than the map.

Where in the park was this located?

I believe part of that building is still being used today.  It is pretty much right across the street from the tintype shop, and possibly the very same building in this photo here.   Somebody else may verify this or set me straight.

Here is a slide/picture from 1977 of the stagecoach ride.   I am not sure of the very last year you could ride, but this would have to be near the end.   I had forgotten that only 10 years old and under could ride at that time.   Really nice photo that probably jogs a lot of people's memory.

Sometimes there is a certain picture that brings back fond memories of SDC.  I believe this one from 1977 does that for me more than any other.  In the 1970's it seems there was always a group or individual playing music on the left side as you entered the Hospitality House.   It seemed they were playing just for me to welcome me to the city.

I know I have requested this before, but here I go again! Any photos of the diving bell? Things out of your family scrapbooks, 1977 to 1984. The old Deepwoods area is the Riverfront area today, so any photos out of that area? I was at the diving bell as JUNIOR DUGAN 1979-1984, and love seeing old photos of the attraction and its employees. Good times indeed!

No, sorry Junior, I wish I did.   Here is a couple of slides/photos from 1977 of the Wally Welch Puppet Show that was located where the Wagon Works Grill is today.  Sorry about the quality.

Here is a picture from probably the mid 1960's of the front of the General Store (I think).   It's interesting how much Civil War items were on display, and for sale at the city at this time.   Things have definitely changed!

Here is a slide/picture from 1977 that I have no idea of the exact location.  My only guess would be around the Ozark Marketplace.....nothing really for me looks familiar to compare with today.
