General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: 2017 Meet ups..
« on: October 13, 2017, 09:48:31 AM »
The weather is looking good, and based on my experience being there yesterday, I'd say it will be crowded! I got there about noon yesterday and the parking lots were full.  It was a beautiful day, and very crowded, but I have to say the crowd was well behaved.  I didn't go planning to ride anything, but I didn't wait long in any line for food purchases or shows.  Don't miss the Wild West show at Red Gold.  It was surprisingly very good!

Random Talk / Re: Site has been quiet?
« on: October 04, 2017, 10:29:34 AM »
Sand, I've noticed how quiet is is, too.  I wondered the same thing - is it working? I hope to go to the fall festival a couple times before it's over. We need Jr. to tell us his stories from the past - always interesting.

Other Parks / Re: Six Flags St. Louis: Then vs. Now

Thanks, Tiffany!  That was really cool.  I was there the first year Six Flags opened, and my brother worked at the Tom and Huck ride during summers, so I sent it to him.

That would block off the wood carvers shop, Sullivans Mill, the candle shop...the hubs would protest blocked access to the wood carvers.  It is IMO one of the prettiest areas of the park.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: New Year's Eve

Sand, I thought something was mentioned last year about New Years Eve at the City. I know I heard it somewhere, because Hubs and I were looking forward to it.

I've seen crews out installing lights over the summer, but first time I saw them being installed while they were lit.

If you are cutting down a quote, remember that there is an opening [ quote ] tag and a closing [ /quote ] tag (no spaces between the brackets). 


Is October too early to start playing Christmas music? I'm ready for it.

Yup, I think it's a little early!  ;D   I was at the City yesterday, and while there wasn't any Christmas music, the lights were on in several areas as workers were stapling them to structures.

I gotta say, the framing is ugly.  Does it detract from landscaping and decorations for the Fall festival?

So I'll be the first to say it.  I hate the color of the station.  I hope that's not the finished product.

Yup, all that gorgeous cedar covered up.  *sadness*

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: 2017 Trip Reports
« on: September 10, 2017, 10:17:31 AM »
Didnt want to start a new thread , this weekend is Country Music Weekend,  last night they had Diaod Rio at Ech Hollow, and Sat was Mercy Day,,,,,,,  attendence for the day was only 13,000.  That has to be a disappointing number the PTB,

I was there Fri. and Sat. night, and I can tell you it was crowded! Late Friday afternoon wasn't too bad, but last night! Wow! Every food vendor had long lines. We got there right after 4:00 planning to have dinner, but a citizen told us Echo opened up 20 min. earlier so we headed that way.  Didn't make it off Main Street and we were standing in line.  Not a seat open last night!  People were sitting on concrete, in stairways, and against walls.  I'm really surprised they didn't cut off attendance. Not a country fan, but a great night.  I actually liked Restless Heart a little better. My only gripe is the way traffic control is set up.  Autograph station/sales set up right in the middle of the walkway really impedes traffic.  And, if someone is in a large ecv, waiting to buy a cd, t-shirt, etc. no one can walk by - there's no room! Tempers were starting to flare when people needed to get by to get out and others were standing there waiting for autographs.  Couldn't they set that up right outside the entrance? Everyone walks out that way anyway, so why not open up the traffic?

Why are starting it?  If you want to make a statement, why not quote reliable sources? Twitchy and Slate??? LOL
  Your Slate link that you seem to need to back up your statement is not only one person's unreliable opinion, but it's from 2015.

I'm not starting anything. Fox News talked about it last on "The Five". Kimberly Gilfoile brought up the subject . That seems like current news to me. And no one is making a statement, I think you need to check yourself and exit through the gift shop.

I'm certain you need to quote more reliable sources.

Duelist, I think you are right about that.  But, I think they are missing the boat in refurbishing the old rides, not just because I love them, but because they are going to all but disappear in other theme parks and SDC could be the park that continues on with that piece of the past that people like. I think they'd always be popular with all generations.

Sand, was it bigger last year?   I watched it for the first time this year, and although it's not something I'm interested in, the folks around me seemed to really enjoy it.
