Tentatively planning for the 20th, several work and health issues pending.

Hope the health issues aren't too bad my friend.

Well it does take you back to the 80's. The 1980's as far as website layout goes.

^ LOL!!!!!

This is an old topic but the SDC website is the worst I've ever seen it.  Horrible to navigate, broken links, nothing about festivals or shows.  I wonder if they have a web designer listing in their job opportunities?  Hmmm  ;)

Confirmed No Indoor Shows through at least the spring festivals

Thanks for the update though I would have been surprised if they DID have indoor shows during the spring.

I wouldnt mind a rewrite of The Pinkerton Man...  But it needs to be an hour show.

I agree Sanddune!  That was a great show.

^ I hear and agree with you somewhat but they did need to put in another water ride after taking Lost River out.  But I do agree they could have spent less by making it more like Lost River and using the money for repairing existing rides.  Hindsight is 20/20 I guess ( and we all know how 2020 went  :P)

^ That was a good one.  I also miss 'Hoedown" which I think was Terry Saunder's return to SDC show from being on "Hee Haw".  I believe it debuted in 1990- I mean 1890  :)

^ I would guess the elevator lift.  I know it had issues this year.

^ Only if it's going away for good.   :(

Since, as Swoosh pointed out, the board has been quiet I thought I'd ask the question if you could bring back one show at SDC (or create a new one) what would it be?  I would have to go with bringing back the Melvin the Chicken Thief show since I remember all the laughs in that one.  Kind of politically incorrect but certainly not offensive.  What would you bring back (or create)?

Wow!  That's one of the best Christmas presents I can think of from SDC: making Thunderation rideable again!  I do get in 1 ride on it each trip but that's all I could handle with the rib-breaking bumps.  Thanks Swoosh!

It used to be the Mile-High cream pies they had at Mary's Pie shop at SDC.  After each visit to SDC we get an email to take a survey asking about our visit and during the food portion it asks for suggestions and I always tell them how I'd love to see the pies return to SDC (along with an offering of a steak dinner at SDC).

And just like that, I was priced out of buying tickets for my family. I hope they give an option for JUST 2021 for the normal price. There is NO WAY I will pay over 600.00 for the chance to go. Especially if I have to wear a mask and make reservations or limit times I can go because they are crowded or my schedule does not match what they have available due to crowd levels.

Some of us don't usually use the BAF's so if you will post when you are going I (and I'm sure others) will be happy to use ours to get you in if we are going to be up there at the same time.  Just a thought.

According to the SDC twitter feed they've been extremely busy the last 2 Saturdays. Last Saturday they posted they were at capacity and that was 20 minutes after opening!  With cool dry weather predicted for this weekend I'm sure tomorrow will be very busy as well.

Dollywood's season pass is $139 a year so basically they are wanting a bit over half to extend the pass. I tried to find the season pass price on the SDC website and it isn't showing as an option anywhere I could find. My recollection is it was around $110 for this year (?), so my guess is SDC will want $59 for the extra 6 months

Still seems like they should just allow it to work all year... but they are hurting for money I would imagine with the huge ride cash outlay

With tax our 2020 season passes were 122.03 for each adult pass- we bought 3.
