General Silver Dollar City Talk / TNT
« on: August 09, 2018, 04:05:58 PM »
Waits everywhere....except TNT. Sitting here near the exit Iíve heard three ďnever againsĒ, two ďthatís so roughĒ and one ďthat hurtĒ.  That doesnít count the adults Iíve heard refusing to ride it. Something is going to have to give.

Starbucks never refused to help the troops at any point. This rumor started during 9/11 and resurfaces every year to 2 years. I donít like coffee but I do love their tea.

That being said, I canít imagine the city ever bringing in Starbucks or caribou or any other chain coffee store. They will do their own brand.

Booked for Sunday night!

It was a gorgeous day!  We were able to ride everything we wanted with very little wait.

We will be at the city tomorrow. Free passes through Tonyís work. We will upgrade them to season passes. Iím hoping tomorrow wonít be too packed.

We are not getting sdc passes this year.  We have so many other things going on! 

4 dance competitions
5 volleyball tournaments
3 trips to Wisconsin

But the best of them all...

Disney in November!  This will be a surprise trip for the kids and we will go right after thanksgiving, which will give them an extra week out of school.

We may try again Thursday.  Anna is complaining of a sore throat so we will play it by ear.

Midtown wasnít bad at all.  But near the train area, the Christmas tree, the expo, and Friedmanís landing were a madhouse.  You couldnít move at all.  We are headed back Thursday so we werenít too concerned about getting a ton of stuff in.

I just talked to a parking lot attendant.  I ran the 14,500 number by him.  He says no way is that the case now.  The parking lots are currently full. People are standing 7 deep to watch the parade.  But people are still trying to come in.  There are lines of people driving in circles trying to get parking spots.  We gave up and left before the parade started.  Lol!!!

At the park today.  We got here around 2:45.  Every lot is full, including notch.  They parked us in the driving lanes that typically run the preferred parking lines.  I asked a worker in the parking lot if this was expected.  He said they were expecting a large crowd but it is higher than expected. 

We are taking an sdc beak next year and putting our season pass money toward a trip to Disney right after thanksgiving 2018.  We will get passes again in 2019.

I know this is a major nitpick and a bit off topic but I found the hot chocolate to be quite disappointing compared to years past. It used to be quite rich and creamy and it was a drink that you definitely got a good value for what you paid for. The two batches I got from two different vendors at Coaster Christmas was basically brown water with little flavor so it seems like they have cheeped out and decided to stretch their ingredients by watering down the batches as they probably think the average person (non regulars) won't notice. One major thing I loved SDC at Christmas was for the quality of their hot chocolate and sadly that was a miss this year. But Christmas in Midtown is impressive and is a must see in person type of thing to appreciate. Oh and on the flip side, the Wassail was as good as always.

I whole heartedly agree!  The one cup I got was gritty and so sweet it made me sick.  I ended up giving it to my Kids who loves it because...Kids.  But I guarantee I wonít be buying any more when we go on the 16th.

You could have just changed clothes in the changing room at White Water, instead of in the motel room. Ohana Falls always has the longest, slowest line. Kalani Towers is the 2nd slowest, longest line. All other lines either move fast or never have a line that is long. The Wave Pool is only at half power because it is safe that way, says a lifeguard.

I'm not a first timer at white water as I have been going there for over 20 years.  I am well aware that they have changing rooms but have you ever tried to change 3 kids in those rooms where there aren't any available dressing rooms?  I'm going to pass on that experience every time if I can.  I talked to one of the lifeguards after it started and stopped after one minutes 3 cycles in a row.  He says that this is a common issue and that they aren't able to get it to work properly at this time.  When trying to ride Saturday, the lines were quite long at all but one ride.  See, the lines fluctuate from day to day and it was a gorgeous night to be riding.  We often waited just for tubes for 10 minutes.
