Seems like the current owners are leaning toward the aquarium concept. Here's more info from KY3:

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: 2019 SDC Refill Tumbler
« on: November 03, 2018, 10:18:17 AM »
I'm struggling with the $50 price for this myself.  I think that $30 would have been a much better price point for it.
Even though we buy a couple of the mugs each year, after we pay for the mug and the refills I don't think we come anywhere near $50 worth of drinks out of it.  Adding it up, I'm betting we're closer to $25-30 for each mug and all the refills we get.  Most of the time we fill them with water anyways.
I wonder what they'll be doing for souvenir cups and refills for regular park guests.  But right now I'm pretty sure it's going to be a no go on the $50 mug from us.

My husband and I have discussed the $50 mug, and it is a definite no for us.  We probably get about $20 - $25 worth of refills in a season. We got less this season because we had terrible luck with refills of frozen lemonade and frozen strawberry so we finally gave up on those.

They had specifically said some of those things were going away.

Yes, the ads for this year say it's the last year for It's a Wonderful Life but it is mentioned in the press release.

I am looking forward to the expansion of shows and music. Since we don't ride as much anymore, the expansion of music and shows gives us a reason to continue being season pass holders.

From searching I have discovered that there have been Price Cutter Thursdays in December in past years.
Last year there were also some days of $40 tickets at the gate in December.

The show replacing it sounds like a World Fest sampler platter show.  So think of the things they’ve had in the past at World Fest and cram it all into one show.

So it's going to be Christmas around the world or something like that replacing It's A Wonderful Life?

Noticed at the park last week the signs for the final season of It's a Wonderful Life (which we speculated may be going to the Showboat for 2019 due to a 2017 survey).

Do we know what is replacing It's A Wonderful Life in 2019?
