Snakes can't survive down in the cave for very long. I have seen a couple on the tower though.

Those are common urban myths about dark rides everywhere.  There probably are occasional snakes, but the stories always tell of them dropping into a boat or ride vehicle.  Snakes are only clinging to the ceiling of a ride waiting to prey on unsuspecting human tourists.
I'd be more concerned about the snakes in the cave...

Shoji was my inspiration for learning the violin. He is an awesome violinist, but the fiddle should be a side dish and never the main course (unless you look like Lindsey Stirling)

I enjoyed his show in 2015. When I went back in 2016 it seemed like Christina was trying to make herself the star of the show. The word around town is that Shoji had made her the producer. She had fired all the other female dancers and was making it all about her.

We left at intermission...

So who's gonna start a "where in the city" with "pictures from the past". That would be pretty awesome, and I might actually get more than 1 point

On the day we moved there, we hit an ice storm and slid down the hill backward at Saddlebrooke. Scariest experience in my life.

As much as I hate to admit it, AP needs to be ripped out and completely replaced.

My wife and I were there on Sunday for our anniversary. Went and saw Dickens and then walked over to the Frisco Barn on our way to IAWL. Very long line so we decided to ride the train just as it was getting dark. Zero wait time. We walked right on. I noticed the trick bench and showed it to my wife (thanks, Sir Willow).

Next, We walked around midtown for awhile and decided to eat dinner at Wagon Works. After that, we went back to the square to watch the tree lighting.

The tree looks kinda glitchy. There was an entire section of lights that was flashing off and on when it shouldn't be. I love that tree but the technology is outdated and it is in desperate need of an upgrade.

My wife decided that we had to watch the 6PM parade (Holly Jolly.. Holly Jolly... UGH) because her friend's daughter is in it.  We followed the parade from GE all the way back to the front gate and missed most of the traffic leaving the park (which is an awesome strategy BTW).

Overall, another great trip

 They did the same thing with the time traveler cup that I bought at Christmas of last year. We forgot it at home this time so we went ahead and bought one of the new Christmas cups

Any thoughts on This coming Sunday?  My kids donít have school Monday. It would be the perfect Sunday to go and let them ride til close.

Sunday is my favorite day to be at the City, since it is usually not as crowded. I will be there this Sunday as well.

I heard a complaint once that we should shut the cave down because it's not ADA compliant.  ::)

Don't get me wrong. I love Christmas and I don't even mind having a parade, but for goodness sake, it's time to get rid of Rudolph... or change up the music .. or ... I don't know ANYTHING but holly jolly... holly jolly ... holly jolly Christmas

We usually go on Sunday to avoid the crowds. I'd be interested in a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday pass if it was offered. Even though I know that for much of the year, SDC isn't even open on Monday or Tuesday, I'd still be interested.
