^ what they said - and for the same reasons I'd prefer to buy American made products - I want my fellow countrymen to make the product and benefit from it.

I finally got to view your video.  I liked it!  Keep posting them!

I hope you get it back, but be sure and let us know how all this turned out.  I've never used "phone locate" before, but good info to know.  Mine fell onto the floor in a bathroom in Maui, and I was in panic mode.  Hubs called my number and left a msg. to whoever might find it, and - I got it back! A Starbucks employee found it, heard it ringing, and answered it.  Talk about a stroke of luck (and an honest person)!

I don't remember getting anything about Tracks, but I'll gladly trade you.  I'll check tomorrow when I'm home.

Well, I asked my upper 30'something son what would bring him to Branson.  He said lake activities would come first. Then, he'd go to SDC, Taneycomo, fishing, the Landing (maybe once to look around and eat), trail riding, 4 wheeling, a zip line (once), and scuba diving. He'd look to stay at a place that had on-site activities such as Big Cedar for the boat/gear rentals, spa, restaurants, night entertainment.  Would he keep returning to Branson? "No, why would I want to do the same thing over and over?" I'd rather do the things I like in new and different places." He likes coming here to do things with us, but he'd rather dive, fish, hike, trail ride, cycle, and "adventure" in new places all the time. That makes a lot of sense to me.

I'm not a fan of the concrete either.  I've dislike every time asphalt around the park is replaced with concrete.  Asphalt isn't as glaring and fits in better with the natural look of the park. 

Try bringing in names that people have heard of.  Most of the permanent shows have headliners that Millennials could not care less about.  The show might be good, but that doesnít change the fact that they donít know/care who they are.  Iíve long said they need a Broadway theatre that brings in shows each month.  They need a place that can house big name concerts.  Etc.

Nope, I don't think so.  How many of us go on vacation to attend a concert?  Not me, anyway.  I'll stay home to attend a concert where I can afford to get good tickets and not have other expenses added on such as hotel rooms, meals, etc.  When I go on vacation, I want time and funds to do things I can't do at home. 

SDC Memories/ Park History / Re: SDC Ride Timeline review

Branson Tri-Lakes just published an article (free reading)  about the removal of the Lost River. The article also has a timeline of the rides at SDC plus mentions some that have come and gone such as BuzzSaw Falls.

Who in the world would compare the Diving Bell with Disney's 20,000 Leagues???  Only someone who doesn't know anything about the Diving Bell!   :o :P

That caused me to read the article.   ;D

We own a business in town and non-stop we hear people asking what there is to do other than shows. Many aren't interested in the shows at all, but are very interested in new attractions. The Stampede is extremely popular as is Sight and Sound and a few other shows. But, families are looking for Ziplines, hiking, stuff like Fritz's, Wonderworks, the new aquarium, sky coasters, mountain coasters, etc. Of course SDC is often top on people's list. They also are being drawn to nice resorts like Big Cedar and spending much of their time there as opposed to shows and other stuff.

You are right about being drawn to nice resorts such as Big Cedar.  It is always crowded at the restaurants, bars, and coffee house there - I mean every time we go; no matter what time of day.  It always surprises me to see the number of families there.  Buzzard Bar has families with kids in there at 10:00 at night.  I haven't been to the new fun house or climbing structure but a friend has, and says there were a lot of people in there doing bumper boats, video games, bowling.  Our friend went in there in the evening with his daughter for a late dinner because they couldn't get into Buzzard Bar for pizza.
