Once again I feel that SDC is really missing out on taking advantage of programs that competitor parks (including Disney and Universal) utilize.

1. Season Dining. 
I don't think there is another chain out there that does not offer this upgrade.  I know I for one would DEFINITELY buy a plan.  Who wouldn't want the option to get a meal and even a snack each time they visit.  If nothing else, this might be a way to start "snuffing out" those who bring in food to the park.  I know heartless on my part, but this isn't a charity.

2. Unlimited Drinks Mug
Again, there isn't a chain out there that doesn't offer a mug that you pay one price and you get unlimited refills for the season.  I think this would be an ideal way to phase out all of the grandfathered in mugs with cheaper pricing.  Again, this isn't a charity.

3. Unlimited Digital On-ride Photos
This has really become popular at Cedar Fair parks and Disney parks.  You pay a price and then you collect as many digital on ride photos as you want during the season.  The best part about these is that you can almost instantly share them online.  This seems like a no-brainer to me.

4. Dinning Show Package
This goes over big time at Disney.  You purchase a dinner and show package at one of the higher end restaurants and you are guaranteed a prime viewing location at one of the bigger shows.  I think this would be a great way to phase out Show Lovers and at the same time make more money off of food sales.  Considering a new musical is coming in 2019 for Christmas, this would be the ideal time to start this.

Much like the 2017 edition of this thread, this will be the place to let everyone know where you are going / have gone during the 2018 calendar year.  To help others find information, we will make these threads last only one calendar year and then we will create another.

Adventure is Out There!  Cannot wait to see where everyone is going.

From the staff of Midwest Info Guide, we would like to wish the readers/posters of SDC Fans a Happy and Prosperous New Years.

To celebrate the coming of a new year, we decided to do a 2017 Year in Review update.  This is something new for us, but it definitely will not be the last as our staff really enjoyed looking back at everything that happened.

We invite you to look back at 2017 through the eyes of MiG and we hope you'll join us in 2018 for continued updates and trip reports.

Thanks again -Swoosh and the MiG Staff.

Construction/Rumors / Christmas at Silver Dollar City
« on: August 03, 2017, 11:29:19 PM »
Thought I would let everyone know that SDC filed trademarks for the following:

Christmas at Silver Dollar City
Christmas in the City

I'm wondering if we will see a change in names from An Old Time Christmas to one of these two in 2018.

Construction/Rumors / SDC's 2018 Project(s) and Park Developments
« on: June 17, 2016, 12:24:35 PM »
A coaster is coming.  A "first of its kind" and we know it is being designed by a German designer.  That should be enough to get everyone's minds spinning with ideas.  This will be a fun 2 years of speculation and project watching.   

Make sure you post your personal updates from the project here in this thread.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / New entrance policy
« on: December 11, 2015, 08:29:18 PM »
Be warned that the park started a new policy for entering the park. ALL guests entering the park must have their bags checked before entering.  There is also a higher security presence at the entrance and the main area.  These officers are very visible with coats emblazoned with large font SECURITY on them. 

Also they are really cracking down on BAFs.  You must be present with the guest and have proper ID to show it is really you. 

Just wanted to let people know to plan for slower entrance procedures through the end of he season.
