SDC Memories/ Park History / Re: SDC YouTube video 1960

Mom was born in 1950. The youngest aunt in 1960. She appears to be pretty young in the video.  Could be 63 probably not much after that

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: SDC tornado/storm shelter plan?

The cave is a good place to be in a tornado,  but you might want to bring a flashlight.  If a tornado were to hit the city, the lights would probably go out

I have it on good authority (the company HR dept) that I am to be offered a permanent full-time position in Harrison either tomorrow or Monday.

How does one go about finding rent houses in Harrison, Arkansas?

What in the heck was with those sharks, and the dress that made certain parts of her body look like beach balls

Branson Talk / Re: Branson and Northwest Arkansas 2015

I go to Branson and NW Arkansas to get away from the city. I live in OKC, where we have casinos and bars and big name concerts and Bricktown and Dave and Busters. I can do all that here. Although, in Oklahoma, you can't buy liquor at Sam's Club.  ;)

What can Branson and Northwest Arkansas offer that is different from OKC, yet still interesting enough to the younger generation that will make them want to come visit? I love the idea of a drive in theater and aquarium at CC.  I think that kind of thing would be a great start. I think that converting the grand palace back into what it started as... A venue to bring in out of town stars... is a great idea, too.

Other Parks / Re: Frontier City Developments

Isn't the water park in OKC a Premiere holding and they just manage Frontier for CNL Lifestyles. Doesn't a further increase in the waterpark type of thing take away from the waterpark. Robbing Peter to pay Paul?

It is owned and or run by the same people here in OKC. They sell the double park season pass just like SDC/White Water. A few years ago I went to Frontier City, and they were selling a season pass (to FC only) for the price of a single days admission.

I guess I am just spoiled because the theming at SDC is so much better than what FC has. I always felt they could do so much more with it.

The water park is "White Water Bay" which was owned by HFEC for a while after it first opened up.

As for what I would do, I've posted it all before.

I remember that we had a page for it somewhere, but I can't seem to find it

Had a good visit last weekend. They are open year round which is very nice. Branson itself didn't have all that much going on.

Branson will never be Vegas and it shouldn't try to be.
What I mean by that is Branson should not sell its soul to attract more visitors. There is a demographic out that seeking "family values" type experiences and that is the demographic that Branson needs to be targeting.  Keep the shows rated "G" and relevant at the same time.
The Lake of the Ozarks crowd is moving to Branson and messing up the lake! (IMHO)
I'm 40 and I have 3 kids. We like fishing and camping and hiking. All things I can do in the Branson area, without even setting foot in Branson unless I want to. Maybe I am the "lake of the Ozarks" crowd.
I myself cannot stand classic rock and old TV.
I myself cannot stand new rock or new TV. The reason they call it classic rock is because it was good enough to continue to get airplay. I'm sure that some of the modern songs will be classics at some point. Reality shows are complete junk.
It's that 20's to 40s demo where the future lies. If I'm in Memphis and I'm taking my kids on a vacation and I have it narrowed down to Branson and PigeonForge/Gatlinburg it's an easy choice to opt to go east. Wasn't that way 20 years ago but it is now.
I'm not against change in Branson, but my concern is the vision you have for it. What are you suggesting? How about turning CC into an aquarium? That would be fine by me. What other suggestions?
