Sounds like it could be a fun, neat addition.  Isn't this the second such one proposed in the last several months?  Or is this the same one that was in the news just a few months back.  Should be interesting to see the artwork when/ if it comes out.

Their location as described sure left me confused though.  It says:

  According to plans provided Thursday to members of a newly formed TIF commission, the redevelopment site is bounded to the east by Henning State Forest, to the south by Branson’s entertainment strip, to the west by a future four-lane loop highway and Table Rock Lake and to the north by Silver Dollar City.

Ummm, what?  76 to the south and SDC to the North?  That doesn't exactly make a lot of sense since SDC is south of 76 and well past where it would be called the entertainment strip.  I'm guessing the highway they are referring to is 265, but not exactly sure.

The 4-lane would be 465 south, not sure how tablerock to the south, SDC to the north and the Forest works into play..?   LOL

I don't think it's strapped forward sanddune, I think that's just how the test dummies are tied in. They aren't showing off how it performs through the turns yet, but I'm sure they'll be dropping more and more videos until March.

OK> I see that now.. That makes more sense..

As far as spin, I would guess/assume that that can be turned off if not wanting to be used..  probably just a hydraulic valve or possible a locking mechanism.     I would expect them to do runs first, then start on the spining cars and the timing of that part of ride.. (maybe not).

All of the video showing off the rie show the cars spinning out of the launch...  UNLESS shave is right, possibly the employees spin the car by hand as the train launches....

"Time" will tell :o :o

If you notice the seat backs are all strapped forward for the first test runs. 

I am sure at this initial stage of testing, They are just happy with it launching and going all the way around the track ;D ;D

UH??   Question?  read the tri lakes article... 1st paragraph they used the word "leasing",  2nd paragraph "purchase".     Which is it? big difference.... LOL

A self-proclaimed Christian and patriotic entertainment company will begin leasing the former Dogpatch USA theme park in Newton County Arkansas, just a few miles south of Harrison.

The company, Heritage USA, revealed the purchase recently in a video posted on the Dogpatch USA Facebook page. An announcer, David Hare, touts the beauty of the Arkansas Ozarks and its proximity to Branson

...it probably would have been better if they had announced them earlier.

They actually announced both bonus days back on December 4th, if not earlier in other places.

Nice, Maybe they should have advertised a little more extensively to get a better turnout..  I  havent talked to anyone yet that even knew about it..   FB, Twitter, Emails, Instagram.     Free posts get a lot of followers

They had a bonus day last week too, didn't they? Should help with the yearly numbers, but it probably would have been better if they had announced them earlier.

I dont know about last week?.     

But yes, more than 24 hour notice probably would be a good idea.. ;)

Sand, I fall in the confidentiality category, so I'm unable to disclose information ~or give my opinion~, until it's released by the leasers. Sound familiar, lol?

I figured as much.  LOL,, :-X :-X

I thought something was up, since you had not commented... LOL ::) ::)
