General Silver Dollar City Talk / All-Season Dining on the Horizon
« on: February 20, 2020, 06:36:11 PM »
Corporate is treating All-Season Dining this year at Dolly’s Splash Country in a test run to see if rolling it out chain-wide soon is a feasible possibility.  Here’s a blog post about how the program at DSC will run this season.  Price points are not stupid high either, but the time restriction on when you can use it is not the best.  I can foresee long lines occurring as people try to use their passes all at the same time

BRANSON, Mo. — A major change is coming to what is known as Branson’s first show.

The famous Baldknobbers after-show manager, Brandon Mabe, fired his father, Tim Mabe.

Tim played a character named ‘Droopy Drawers’ in the show.

Brandon, Tim and his wife, Patty Mabe, posted their feelings about the family shake-up on Facebook.

Patty wrote asking for prayers because they had just recently filed bankruptcy trying to keep another of their businesses going.

She continued to write that she was in shock and grieving not only for Tim losing the job he loved but for the loss of a 60-year-old legacy and legend, Droopy Drawers.

In response to the posts by his parents, Brandon posted that he loves his father and that every decision is made with the best interest of the family, business, partners and cast.

Fans and friends of the Baldknobbers are passionately coming out on different sides of the issue on social media

“I don’t know all the gist about it,” said Dee Dee Sanders, a Branson resident. “But, I just feel sad because they’re one of our founding families and I hate that something like this would have to happen.”

“I’ve worked with the family for most of my life and it’s really hard,” said MaryAnn Rivero, Branson resident. “Unless you’re right in the middle of it..you don’t really know what to do.”

Much like the 2019 edition of this thread, this will be the place to leave your personal trip reports from your visits at SDC during the 2020 calendar year.  To help others find information, we will make these threads last only one calendar year and then we will create another.

See you on the midway!  Cannot wait to read about (and see photos from) your visits.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / JoDee Herschend
« on: November 26, 2018, 12:01:37 PM »
In case you haven’t heard yet, I hate to be bearer of bad news... JoDee Herschend lost her fight Sunday with cancer.  I don’t know all of the details other than she came home from the Mayo Clinic for Thanksgiving. 

Those who had the privilege of meeting this special lady in person know how big of a loss this is to the SDC family. 

Fly high, JoDee.

Random Talk / So You Wanna Build Your Own Rollercoaster?
« on: May 01, 2018, 01:10:28 PM »
Recently purchased the CDX Blocks Littler Dipper "Lego" style coaster and did a report on building it.
https://www.midwestinfoguide.com/2018/05/cdxlittledipper.html

I got to admit, it was a lot of fun to build and I think it turned out great. 
Definitely recommend purchasing.  It was just under $40 with shipping.

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.

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.
