I like the fact that the video featuring Brad Thomas announcing the COVID-19 guidelines was filmed in front of the nearly completed Mystic River Falls.  Looks great!

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Internet Article on Theme Parks
« on: May 23, 2020, 10:35:49 AM »
I saw this article on the Internet yesterday about things that you will probably never see again at theme parks: https://www.msn.com/en-us/travel/news/7-things-youll-never-see-in-theme-parks-ever-again/ss-BB14tsTF

One thing that caught my eye was no more food buffets.  That sounds right and being as how one of our favorite places to eat in the City is the breakfast buffet at the Mill (with our favorite waitress Ms. Debbie) so I was wondering how they could still provide this service.  Our thoughts were putting up a shield with slots between the front side and the kitchen side of the buffet with the servers filling your plate with what you requested.  Any other ideas how they could accomplish this?

If they can replace LROTO with a similar ride they can do the same thing with others such as FITH and T-N-T.  Do it SDC!

^ I wouldn't think they would do that right (hopefully) before the season opens unless it has developed a serious issue.  Or worse, they decided not to open at all this year.

Sorry but we love the guns!  We have fun with the competition.  I would also love to see more modern animatronics in the ride of course. And I do miss the "rock slide".  I rode the Flooded Mine for many years before they put in the guns.  It was the ill-fated year of 1989 and Gaslight Square that they announced it was the last year for the Flooded Mine and we were devastated.  We must have rode it 20 times the 2 days we were there that year.  Then in 1990 they added the guns so we were relieved the Flooded Mine still existed.  It had a big sign at the entrance stating it was now called "The Great Shootout in the Flooded Mine- sponsored by Coca Cola" with the Coke logo on the sign.

Wow I really didn't expect it to go in this direction...

Considering this is the second most politicized topic behind the current presidential administration, I’m not sure why you thought it wouldn’t end up like this.  There’s a major line drawn between the ones who are scared to death and the ones who are convinced this is overblown.  There’s no convincing these two groups otherwise.  Interestingly enough those groups correspond almost perfectly with “orange man bad” and “MAGA” which should tell you where they get their news/info from.

I guess I didn't think it would end up like this because I didn't ask about the moral decisions about going to a theme park/large venue.  I was honestly trying to decide when they open will I feel safe going back?  There have been a lot of good suggestions for what the park could do.  I know safety, at best in almost any situation, is an illusion.  I ride things like Outlaw Run knowing that something could happen but at the same time knowing that daily safety inspections are done.  Accidents do happen however because humans are involved and humans make mistakes.  It's just at what point do you feel comfortable with the odds of what's going on.

Wow I opened up a whole nest of murder hornets when I started this thread, huh?  I really didn't expect it to go in this direction but was hoping for maybe innovative ideas for the City to make it more safe.

^^ Not bad Outlaw Run- you may have a great "second career" ahead of you!

^ Are you doing ok up there in Fayetteville, Chitlins?  I live about 20 miles southwest of Little Rock in Benton and one our local weathermen, Todd Yakobian, posted on his twitter feed earlier some pictures of baseball sized hail in Fayetteville.  Nasty stuff.

Okay, after a lot of soul-searching I have to ask the question: What would SDC have to do to make you feel comfortable enough to go back?  Our first planned trip of the year is for the 16th - 17th of this month for Bluegrass and BBQ.  I asked my wife (i really don't see it happening) but what if that was the weekend they decided to open for the season.  Would we go then?  What would have to happen for us to feel comfortable enough to go?  Make it mandatory that everyone wear a mask of some kind?  Do a temperature check for everyone going into the park?  Limit the number of people in the park?  What would they need to do?

FYI Bluegrass & BBQ has been completely canceled for this season

I knew that- just making a what if scenario
