Got a new survey today about SDC which was different from ones I have received in the past. Asked how many times I had been in the past 12 months, wanted to know what I used for my most recent admission (season pass, one day ticket, etc.). Then there were questions about the 3 things I never wanted to change at SDC -- fill in the blank. Then 3 things I would like to see refreshed or replaced -- fill in the blank. Check off up to 10 things that were musts for you at SDC, check off things you could live without. There were other questions where you could really make comments.  Questions covered rides, shows, food, attractions (McHaffie Homestead, Wilderness Church, School, Grandfather's Mansion), areas (Grand Exposition, Half Dollar Holler, Fireman's Landing).

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Got another survey this week about SDC
« on: February 16, 2017, 06:53:14 PM »
Got another survey this week from H2R about the theme of SDC, why do I go, and lots of other questions.

Here's one of them -- Which of the following statements would make you most likely to visit SDC?

1) A world steeped in hometown values, traditions, and a genuine desire to make guests walk away with a lighter heart.

2) With an immersive 1880s theme chiseled out of our great pioneering past, everything from the rides to the food and entertainment honors that spirit of exploration, resourcefulness, and grit.

3)  The surrounding natural beauty seems to transform visitors, bringing families and couples together in a way nowhere else can.

4) None of the above.

Then there was a follow up asking you to explain why you made your choice.

Later on there was a series of questions based on the statement below, and opportunities to write why you felt the way you did about certain things.

What makes this park special is that every visit is an adventure. With an immersive 1880s theme chiseled out of our great pioneering past, everything from the rides to the food and entertainment honors that spirit of exploration, resourcefulness, and grit. World-class roller coasters scream through the hills, in the park's rustic, natural setting. Big, high production shows celebrate the good times with lively entertainment. Demonstrating artisan craftsmen line the streets and squares showing guests how candy, iron, glass, wood and other goods are made by hand. There are even areas just for the little ones to explore. Adventure, exploration, and discovery are everywhere.

Also questions about festivals, how often you visit, what type of passholder are you, and more.

Took a long time to answer since it wasn't just multiple choice.

Anyone else get this survey?
