Saw this on channel 3 out of Springfield Mo this morning.  Sounds like the young girl is fine and SDC followed the proper procedure.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Jack & Pete At OTC
« on: March 06, 2012, 08:25:49 AM »
Just wondered if anyone was going to this!  I would love to go but starting at 8:00 a.m. would be a little hard to get around and the $25.00 per person is a tad steep.  Still it is tempting because it isn't everyday you get to hear from them.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Recognition Plaque
« on: December 31, 2011, 07:26:52 PM »
Just was wondering if anyone has seen the recognition plaque that has been dedicated to Jack & Pete by the citizens of SDC?  It is located just to the left of the Lumbercamp near the waterfall.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / New SDC Logo For 2012
« on: November 17, 2011, 02:20:18 PM »
I heard straight from the horse's mouth last Saturday that the new logo that was implemented this year is again changing.  I was told the sparks would be disappearing starting next year.  The way it was presented to me it would just go back to the way it looked before the sparks.  So, if you want to pick up some merchandise with the current logo you might want to get to the city before the end of this year.

I saw this in a local paper and thought some people might be interested.  Didn't know they did this kind of thing.  It does sound like a lot of fun and being limited to only 400 would be interesting.

SDC Memories/ Park History / 1965 SDC Video!
« on: April 05, 2011, 11:24:30 PM »
Saw this on Youtube and thought it was pretty interesting!  Watch for Shad playing in a street skit, Herman the hermit's treehouse and the swinging bridge.  I don't know if it is just the video or the bridge was a lot wider in 1965.  It looks to me it was about twice the width it is today.

Branson Talk / Branson Belle Disabled!
« on: December 12, 2010, 08:16:13 AM »
Branson Belle ran aground at around 6 p.m. last night during dinner cruise.  Looks like it stranded 642 people which 72 are workers.  They had to rescue 9 people for medical reasons which I presume were not injury related from the cruise.  Built 50 yard road to get down to the Belle and are building a ramp to get to first level for rescue.  As of 8:15 this morning passengers are still on the boat.  Looks like High winds caused the accident.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Jack & Pete Signing At Border's
« on: October 15, 2010, 07:28:53 AM »
Join Jack and Pete Herschend at Borders in Springfield, MO this Saturday from noon until 2pm. They will be signing copies of the keepsake book 50 Years of Making Memories. Don’t have your copy yet? Copies of the book will be available. Hope to see you there!


I copied this from SDC facebook.  Sounds like a great opportunity for people to meet Jack & Pete and get a great keepsake also!  Just thought I would let everyone know (if they didn't already) on the site so they could maybe make plans to be there.

Over the years I have wondered about this from time to time.  It would without a doubt bring in a lot of short term income to the park.  The long term income would be shaky to say the least.  I am sure at one time or another HFE has thought about this or crunched the numbers and found it not feasible.  I have not really researched to see if any other parks are doing this or have tried to do this, especially one as big as SDC.  I guess the major question would be how much would the pass be.  Maybe they could do it by age group, like 0 to 10, 11 to 20 and so on.  The younger the person is, the higher the pass.  I just thought it would be interesting to see what everyone else thought about this (smart, stupid, feasible, not feasible, etc)
