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.

I have no idea what park this could be for - but found it interesting.

For those who are interested, the announcement will be made Thursday.  The park said they will announce new rideS (yes plural) for the park. No word on what and location.

I have a feeling that 2017 is going to be a BIG year for the park. 
Let's use this specific thread for discussion on what *may* be coming for the 2017 season

Branson Talk / New Branson Entertainment Survey
« on: August 03, 2015, 04:45:37 PM »
Not sure how many have received this, but here is the link to the survey:

[Moderator Edit:  The link provided gave the opportunity to change Swoosh's answers, so I removed it.  Sorry, Swoosh:  I just wanted to protect your answers.]

It looks like they really are trying to reinvent the entertainment aspect of town.  Nice to see that they are are at least attempting to be proactive about it.  The two entertainment shows they are promoting as potential shows are... interesting.  The "musical" is... well, WOW (and not in a good way).

[Moderator Explanation:  Suffice it to say that the survey asked respondents to rate their willingness to attend a magician show or Duck Commander the Musical.)

Branson Talk / Dolly acquires Lumberjack Feud / What about Pirates
« on: June 14, 2015, 11:01:39 PM »
Now that Dolly Parton has acquired the Lumberjack Feud dinner show in Pigeon Forge, how long before we see this concept duplicated and perhaps come to Branson?

Also, will Pirates Live ever come to Branson?  The Dixie Stampede in Myrtle Beach was converted over not that long ago.

FYI: Saturday is the grand opening for Fireman's Landing.  Festivities will start around 8:40am at the Gazebo with a performance by California High School's Pinto Pride Band followed by presentations by the Herschend brothers and other guest speakers.  Next a parade to Fireman's Landing will occur featuring a bag pipe band in the lead followed by numerous firefighters, golf carts with dignitaries and the California's band.  At the new area there will be two more short speeches from the 2nd story balcony of Fire Station No. 3, ribbon cutting and another performance by California's band.

All of the area's major media outlets will be in attendance. If you want to witness the ceremonies you should plan to arrive early.
