Other Parks / What is open in Florida?
« on: July 07, 2020, 05:18:13 PM »
I might be down in the Tampa/Orlando area at the end of the month for a couple of days.  What all is open down there?  Not really enough time for Disney nor do I want to spend that kind of money.  Any cheaper parks open?  Any parks closer to Tampa?

White Water Discussion / White Water opening
« on: June 18, 2020, 09:25:59 PM »
Anybody been to WW since it opened?  If so, how was it with the mask thing?  We are going up this weekend to take the kid on some of our free passes. 

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Guest passes expired
« on: June 18, 2020, 04:48:24 PM »
Have we heard anything about the guest passes that have now expired that were for the dates they were closed?  Were they extended and can be used now, or are they just no good anymore?

Branson Talk / Lots of empty businesses/Yakov theater
« on: June 14, 2020, 08:51:36 PM »
It seems there are starting to get a lot of abandoned businesses and hotels in Branson.  It is starting to look bad up and down some sections of the strip.  I wonder how much if this was already coming and how much is virus related.

We went to a show last night, Branson acrobats or something like that.  They are performing at the Yakov theater.  Supposedly they were in town last year at a different theater doing a show on ice.  This week was their opening week and they thought about sending the troupe back to China but decided to keep them and see how it goes.  There were 6 people in attendance including the wife and I.  Kind of sad.  Anyway, that got me to thinking, why does Yakov perform down at the Caravelle or whatever it is called instead of his own theater?  This was the first time we have been in there since about 2006 or so when we saw him there.  Place still seems to be in good shape but is showing some wear around the edges from some deferred maintenance.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Whoopie pies
« on: June 13, 2020, 02:58:56 PM »
I noticed as we were leaving they are now selling whoopie pies at the cinnamon roll place as you leave. Does anybody have any real legitimate inside info as to where they came up with the idea for these?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Fire in the hole
« on: June 13, 2020, 02:57:42 PM »
When we rode fire in the hole the guy putting us in line said they had done a bunch of work to the track and it was now very smooth on the drops. He wasn’t lying, it was quite a bit of difference. The ride looked and rode great. Hard to believe they would put work into it to just tear it down soon.

Branson Talk / Oyo
« on: May 14, 2020, 09:07:33 PM »
For giggles I was searching hotels in Branson on Travelocity and noticed there are several that are now Oyo hotels, such as the Windmill for example.  I have been noticing in other parts of the country they seem to be converting a lot of lower end hotels to these.

Branson Talk / Branson these days
« on: April 07, 2020, 07:13:00 PM »
Has anyone been to Branson since the outbreak?  Is it a ghost town?  Anything even open over there right now?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Trailblazer pass
« on: January 30, 2020, 08:13:00 AM »
Would I be correct in assuming that the trailblazer pass this year will not work on the new river ride?

White Water Discussion / WW day tickets
« on: July 25, 2019, 02:20:45 PM »
We have season passes to SDC but this year I opted to not get the double park pass.  If we wanted to go to WW is there some sort of discounted day ticket for SDC pass holders?

Branson Talk / Any duck boats for sale cheap?
« on: May 27, 2019, 01:15:24 PM »
Since I have been flooded in since Thursday I am thinking I should try to see if I can pickup one of them former ride the duck boats for cheap to use as transportation in and out during flooding

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Looks like rain tomorrow
« on: May 17, 2019, 09:44:31 PM »
It looks like it will rain/storm tomorrow afternoon up there.  I wonder if that will drive down traffic?  Or at least will drive it down in the afternoon. 

General Silver Dollar City Talk / BBQ best bang for the buck
« on: May 11, 2019, 12:10:06 PM »
In all the years I have been going to SDC during the Blue Grass/BBQ festival we have never eaten any of it.  We have strolled thru the red/gold hall and checked it out but thats about it.  Since we will be there tomorrow what/where is the best bang for the buck for food at this deal?   We usually do not eat at the city very often but end up leaving early to mid afternoon when it starts getting busy if we get there pretty close to opening.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / I am a complete moron
« on: April 13, 2019, 03:59:45 PM »
So we got there at opening today and rode TT first.  After getting off the ride I discovered I no longer had my iPhone.  Crap.  At that moment I realized I left it in my shirt pocked and not in my pants pocked or in our back like normal. Completely forgot about it.  It must have fallen out during a loop and I didnt even notice.  I was the dummy today I normally make fun of as to how somebody could be so stupid as to lose their phone on a ride.  Reported it to the ride operator but of course they wont go looking until park closes.  The bad part is, rain is moving in and it is supposed to rain all night I think.  We were only here last night so now I will have to stay another night and go back tomorrow.  When we got to the hotel I logged into my icloud account to locate my phone and I can see where it is on the sat map but that shows the area before the ride was put in.  I set it to lost mode and a few minutes later received an email that it was found.  I assume that means maybe they found it because a message will pop up on the screen saying it is lost and if somebody finds it they can report it found on the device.  Never have used this feature before so just guessing.  Anyway, here is a screen shot.  Looks to me like this might be where the building is.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Trailer parking
« on: March 09, 2019, 05:40:55 PM »
I have to go to western Arkansas Thursday but am thinking about leaving a day early and stopping by the city for a little bit Wednesday.  I will be pulling a car trailer.  I have season preferred parking.  Is there a parking area for trailers or is this an added charge?
