Branson Talk / New Showboat Branson Belle survey
« on: December 25, 2017, 07:05:18 PM »
I seem to get slammed when I mention the surveys I get but I did get another one this week about new Christmas shows for the Belle. Looks like they are interested in having "A Christmas Carol", "It's a Wonderful Life" or "Miracle on 34th Street" instead of the current Christmas variety style show.

More info from today's Branson Tri-Lakes News -- the road to the proposed resort would be a road by the Steak and Shake across from the old Celebration City.

Branson Talk / Re: New Waterpark proposed for Branson area

Sounds like it could be a fun, neat addition.  Isn't this the second such one proposed in the last several months?  Or is this the same one that was in the news just a few months back.  Should be interesting to see the artwork when/ if it comes out.

Their location as described sure left me confused though.  It says:
Quote
  According to plans provided Thursday to members of a newly formed TIF commission, the redevelopment site is bounded to the east by Henning State Forest, to the south by Bransonís entertainment strip, to the west by a future four-lane loop highway and Table Rock Lake and to the north by Silver Dollar City.

Ummm, what?  76 to the south and SDC to the North?  That doesn't exactly make a lot of sense since SDC is south of 76 and well past where it would be called the entertainment strip.  I'm guessing the highway they are referring to is 265, but not exactly sure.

The other waterpark announced is the one Westgate is building next to Drafts on Shepherd of the Hills Expressway. Sitework has already started for that park.

Construction/Rumors / Re: Christmas at Silver Dollar City
« on: November 24, 2017, 10:19:25 AM »
We went Thursday of last week. Thought Christmas in Midtown was spectacular. Saw the last showing of Dickens and the Living Nativity. Most of the far right of the Opera House was empty, and I don't think there were a hundred people at the Living Nativity. Had a short wait for the train just before 8. Also able to walk right in and get our ornaments and season passes with no waiting. Tram lines at park closing were crazy though.

Construction/Rumors / Re: Ride Survey 09.11.17
« on: September 13, 2017, 12:43:28 PM »
I didn't get this survey this week but I got another one about the overall future of the park. I did start a thread about that. Was a very comprehensive survey about rides, attractions, food, entertainment, areas of the park.

Got a new survey today about SDC which was different from ones I have received in the past. Asked how many times I had been in the past 12 months, wanted to know what I used for my most recent admission (season pass, one day ticket, etc.). Then there were questions about the 3 things I never wanted to change at SDC -- fill in the blank. Then 3 things I would like to see refreshed or replaced -- fill in the blank. Check off up to 10 things that were musts for you at SDC, check off things you could live without. There were other questions where you could really make comments.  Questions covered rides, shows, food, attractions (McHaffie Homestead, Wilderness Church, School, Grandfather's Mansion), areas (Grand Exposition, Half Dollar Holler, Fireman's Landing).

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: 2017 Trip Reports
« on: September 10, 2017, 05:15:26 PM »
We went to the Restless Heart concert Friday night, thoroughly enjoyed it. Very thankful that Echo Hollow is opening early so that you don't have to stand in line for hours. I would say it was about 98% full. Last year we attended all 3 nights but chose not to do so this year since Diamond Rio and Lonestar were repeats from last year.

It took us the longest time to get back to our vehicle after a concert than it ever has. It was really tight near the scooter/stroller rental booth due to all of the scooters parked in front of the booth. I will be glad when the entrance area is redone so the bottlenecks aren't so bad when there are large crowds entering or exiting.
