Oh wow, that was an awesome article! Thanks for linking it!

Pretty sure drones aren't allowed over the park anyway; didn't some guy who posted drone video of SDC on YouTube get in trouble for it last year?

To be honest, I'm not all that sad about the show itself leaving, as I've not been impressed with it ever since I read the book. But I'd love to see the homestead and all the other stuff survive.

I like mhguy's idea of building a resort there; keep what's there and just add on. Maybe make it a cabin-based resort?

If they did historical productions I might attend. Being a agnostic the bible stuff just is not my cup of tea. Guess you could say I am not the typical Branson God and Country demographic.

Same here (agnostic-atheist). But I'm a writer, so even if I don't get anything spiritually out of stories about Moses or Jonah, I do get things out of them when it comes to symbolism/etc. So I've actually been rather interested in checking out these Sight & Sound shows, not just because they're stories from my childhood that I still appreciate even now, but also because of the technicality of the shows. They look AMAZING. I mean, live animals and what-not? Wow. I wish I hadn't missed the Noah show.

sdcfan88: Those are definitely much better examples of what SDC could do with technology. Ever since Baron 1898 was announced, I've been itching to see SDC implement a similar ride because WOW it is awesome!

Omg. For all the hype, this is definitely a letdown. Like, there are POVs on YT that are cutting off the end to keep up the whole "What's in the shed?" mystery but... yeah. Not that great for that much hype.

This kid's reaction to the shed at the end is a good summary of how disappointing this seems to be:

Now, I'll give them credit where it's due - the coaster itself looks fun, and the train cars have excellent theming. It's just that hype buildup for a screen-heavy brake run.... Yeah, I dunno.

It was also just announced that they will probably have to cease work on the Spirit of 76 project for the time being due to funding. They've hardly even started...

Shoot. I was wondering why the website for the project had disappeared! Thankfully, the project plan is still available to read here:

I really hope they can get the funding worked out; I've been looking forward to what they have planned!

Well, Brad Thomas just tweeted this image...  Wild Mountain?

Thank you for posting this, straightshooter! Wild Mountain is one of the titles that Herschend filed a trademark for recently - February 14 of this year, in fact:

Are the little tree's on either side new?

They were there in September last year; not sure about before that.

Here's a good shot I found on Instagram of it:

It isn't about the time... I just do not like my picture taken by anyone. Just a personal quirk... maybe part of the native american side coming out. I will opt out on shore too... hopefully won't be a fight because I really want to see the Country on the lake show.

One of my best friends is Choctaw, and we actually just recently discussed that exact topic, so I understand 100% what you mean and I hope for your sake that in future they don't push you to have your photo taken the way they did before.

Apparently the journalist isn't quite up to speed about how to read trademark filings. When I read the article, I was confused by them saying "Top Dog" and "Barke" were filed under the same category as "Time Traveler" because I had just looked up & read the trademark filings a couple weeks ago after we got wind of the "Time Traveler" filing.

So I just went and looked up the trademarks from Herschend again, and I was right; "Top Dog" and "Barke" are not listed under "roller coaster."

"Top Dog" has two filings, one under each of the following categories; "Barke" has a single filing with both of the following listed in the one filing:

1) "Amusement park and theme park services; Animation production services; Book publishing; Entertainment services in the nature of live stage show performances in the nature of plays and performances in the form of musical theater; Magazine publishing; Publication of children's books; Publishing books in the field of motion pictures, television shows and multimedia entertainment content; Entertainment services in the nature of development, creation, production and post-production services of multimedia entertainment content; Entertainment services in the nature of development, creation, production, distribution, and post-production of motion pictures, television shows and multimedia entertainment content featuring animation"

2) "Visual recordings and audiovisual recordings featuring music and animation related to a costumed character"


Now what IS interesting is that there are two new filings.

"Wild Mountain" was filed on February 14, 2017. "Mountain Wings" was filed on February 16, 2017. Both are under the category "ENTERTAINMENT SERVICES IN THE NATURE OF AN AMUSEMENT PARK RIDE, NAMELY, A ROLLER COASTER".

Now THOSE could perhaps be red herrings....?

Yeah, I didn't even know there was spellcheck on here, LOL. I always assumed it was my browser (Opera, previously Chrome).

Being autistic, I am an EXTREMELY picky eater. So looking at the menu for the new restaurant has me REALLY excited because of the level of customization available for your meal. It might end up becoming my favorite place to eat at the park.
