I'm not sure why it wasn't left as a sandwich shop... perhaps there was something wrong with the building.

I'm also not sure why they suddenly needed to do demo right now, with the park about to kick into high gear for summer season. Roof collapse or a code violation? 

I'll bet they leave it as open space though. Gotta fit more people in for the Christmas spectacle...

I miss the original sandwhich shop, fresh sandwhiches, quick service good stuff..   then they started premaking them ???.  not so good.  closed it shortly after that..

As far as demo, as small as that building is, they should have been able to knock it down and clean it up in a couple of days..  then asphalt/concrete another day... Done!!

In other news, I hear there's some kind of new construction going on in midtown? I'll be there this weekend to see for myself, but if you have photos from today, throw them at us!

Big Jacks is being removed.  No other details than that

That building needed to be gone. has been vacant and no maintenece on it for a while now...   

Maybe a place for another Christmas tree?? ::)

I think we are all in agreement the PTB really need to put some love into the older rides.. Get them all fixed up and special effects working.

We went this morning and it was pretty busy trying to get in, lots and lots of school groups.  There were a lot of kids but we still managed to get most rides in pretty much walk on.  FITH had a little bit of a wait because they were only running 2 trains.  WF was starting to back up because they were only running 1 train.  The barn swing was  backed up too because they only had 1 side going.  We rode TT on the way out and it was about a 15-20 minute wait.  We left about 2pm or a little after.

Had almost 5,000 people today...   Lots of kids this time of year, class trips and so on...

We are planning to go to SDC either Wednesday+Thursday or Thursday+Friday of next week.  Thursday+Friday works better for our schedule, but I'm thinking that we might encounter lighter crowds on Wednesday as compared to Friday, especially since Friday is leading into Memorial Day weekend. 

Does anyone have an educated guess as to how the crowds will be next week, especially whether Friday will be significantly more crowded than earlier in the week?

Wed- Thurs will be much lighter crowds next week.. some schools still in session, But with memorial weekend coming up friday will be busier..
Enjoy the visit.

I would tend to agree with you..

If I want a meal or snack, I will buy it. As will many other people 
I dont have any interest in photos,.   
I have my mugs, dont expect me to buy new. There are lots of newcomers buying the new mugs,  Leave us "old guys" alone ;D
I might be open to dinner and show, depending on quality of each and the price of course.

Actually, the crowd was not too bad at all--I have seen MUCH worse.  There were several school bands there and quite a few Moms, but no real crowding. 

The longest lines I saw were for the Lost River, but even those weren't spilling over into the area by the Riverfront Playhouse.

It was hot, and maybe the new ride soaked up part of the crowd.  Dunno, but it was really a pleasant day.

Thats good for you..  I was surprised at the low number.. I kinda expected 12-15,  but lower numbers makse a better day for you.. Grats!!

Today was as crowded as I've seen it this year, but I don't go on weekends (excluding today  ;D), and it was very manageable.  Vincent's shows were great as usual.  I only planned to attend the first one, but Hubs wanted to see it one more time.  The first show was mostly gospel, which might turn a few off, but it was fantastic.  I saw the last one of the day, completely different, and Barbara Fairchild came up on stage from the crowd and sang a couple numbers with her. What's the attendance today, Sand?

about 8500 on sunday,  should have been a good day to visit..

FWIW, each of her shows at SDC will be different sets.   So theoretically you could attend all 12 shows at SDC and they’d be different

I had forgotten that detail.. I think she has done it that way for the few years..  Good for her..!  give the customers something different everytime..
