General Silver Dollar City Talk / Internet Article on Theme Parks
« on: May 23, 2020, 10:35:49 AM »
I saw this article on the Internet yesterday about things that you will probably never see again at theme parks: https://www.msn.com/en-us/travel/news/7-things-youll-never-see-in-theme-parks-ever-again/ss-BB14tsTF

One thing that caught my eye was no more food buffets.  That sounds right and being as how one of our favorite places to eat in the City is the breakfast buffet at the Mill (with our favorite waitress Ms. Debbie) so I was wondering how they could still provide this service.  Our thoughts were putting up a shield with slots between the front side and the kitchen side of the buffet with the servers filling your plate with what you requested.  Any other ideas how they could accomplish this?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Going back to SDC
« on: May 01, 2020, 10:00:23 PM »
Okay, after a lot of soul-searching I have to ask the question: What would SDC have to do to make you feel comfortable enough to go back?  Our first planned trip of the year is for the 16th - 17th of this month for Bluegrass and BBQ.  I asked my wife (i really don't see it happening) but what if that was the weekend they decided to open for the season.  Would we go then?  What would have to happen for us to feel comfortable enough to go?  Make it mandatory that everyone wear a mask of some kind?  Do a temperature check for everyone going into the park?  Limit the number of people in the park?  What would they need to do?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Bringing Something Back from SDC's Past
« on: January 18, 2020, 10:33:42 AM »
Since this is in general a slow time of year conversation wise I thought I'd start a what if topic: If you could bring one thing back from SDC's past that they don't have anymore what would it be?  I would have to go with the book store.  They had books from locals and other books about subjects I wouldn't have thought of browsing for on Amazon.  I had mentioned this to them in an email and they said they just couldn't compete with places like Amazon and the store wasn't turning a profit anymore.  I know I bought something from them almost every trip but I can't keep the store open by myself.  So, what would you like to see brought back?

SDC Memories/ Park History / Wayne Milnes
« on: June 10, 2019, 07:47:26 PM »
I was very sad to hear of the passing of Wayne Milnes.  He helped create many of my "memories worth repeating" during his time at SDC and performing at Corn Crib theater.  He was hilarious as the Judge in the Melvin the Chicken Thief show at the Courthouse (now Riverfront) Playhouse and as a contestant in the Boxing Show.  RIP Wayne- you will be missed.

Our next trip to the City will be October 15th - 16th.  Does anyone know if there is a Corporation Day planned for those dates? ie Cox Health Day, etc.  Thanks

Random Talk / Students at U of A
« on: May 30, 2014, 05:38:27 PM »
Just spent the last 2 days with my son at freshman orientation at the university of Arkansas at Fayetteville.  Curious if anyone on the site has children at the university or are you a student there?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Where to go when it rains
« on: February 14, 2014, 10:32:52 PM »
Just curious, say you're at the City in the summer and a thundershower pops up where would you go to wait it out?  I used to always go to the bookstore to browse but since they closed that I'm looking for somewhere else.  Of course a show would probably be the best thing but that's not always possible for a pop-up shower.

Random Talk / Government Shutdown
« on: October 03, 2013, 07:29:05 AM »
Anyone else get furloughed by the Federal Government shutdown?  I work for a state agency but since my job is mostly federally funded I'm out of a job until the shutdown is over.  They got about 80 out of around 100 of us at my office.  Hopefully this will be over soon.
