^I thought last year's Times told us that it was the last year for the Globetrotters and the last year for Rudolph.

^^I'm right there with you on WorldFest.  I'm sure they can shop much more easily and cheaply for the standard amusement park stuff they have with this new weird festival.

^Swoosh, might I only need 34 guesses?

The New Times, today, claims 2018 is the last year for the Wild West Show and for It's a Wonderful Life.

It also still announces Rudolph's Holly Jolly Christmas Parade is still scheduled.  I thought last year was supposed to be the last year for that parade.

The price is going to be $42 for next year.

Even if that is the case it has been $40.00 for how may years?
We are getting a great deal, I am happy to kick in $2 more to help keep things humming.

LOL!! Keep that 2 bucks in your pocket for now MH..  Let me see whats going on first.,,,, ;)

It was just what my wife was told over the phone on Saturday.  Maybe she wasn't talking to the right person.

Branson Talk / Re: New Showboat Branson Belle survey

Personally, I would rather see the current type of show, 

rather than a production number of one of the "classics"

Not me.  I want something unique to HFE, and not just another music/variety show.  In fact, I'd rather see an immersive experience than another concert.  That doesn't mean there can't be elements of variety embedded.

Seriously though, why can't they come up with a showboat show - something that is dependent upon the fact that guests are riding on a showboat.  Maybe come up with a comical hijacking of the Belle - a sort of train robbery on the lake.  Give us a reason for the show being on Table Rock and not on Hwy. 76.

I overheard an employee with a clipboard talking to other employees telling them they'd be giving up their parking area today and needed to be in Branson West for pick up to work.  With weather in mid 60's I predict today will be a cluster.

Wait a cotton-pickin' minute!!!  Don't the citizens just live there?  Why would they even need a parking lot? :P

With the magnetic control, I would imagine the turn begins when the vehicle leaves the station and on its way down the first hill.  I have to assume very little will be left to gravity.  From everything that has been released, this will not be a "natural" spin, but a controlled one.  Stopping will be very similar, but in reverse.  The cars will likely stop turning when they reach the level portion of the track circling back into the station.

This is probably a one reason Disney has four parks in Florida, alongside their "competitors".  HFE needs to compete with itself a little.

Plan?  When they continue to plop things like Fry Bread stands in the middle of pinch points, I wonder if there really is a plan.

The hot chocolate was fine when we visited Friday - nothing out of the norm.

Twenty-six thousand was the number we were told for Black Friday, as well.  They expected 7500 for Thursday evening, but came out shy of that by a thousand or so (as long as you trust the gossip from employees).  Friday was a moderate crowd, as well - not too many for comfort.

Usually on the square for us.  I can tell you there will be a complaint voiced if The Works isn't as good this week.  We'll be there, Thursday night, so we shall see.

Make that Friday.

Speaking of Midtown, Sullivan's Mill has basically been converted to a Cinnamon Bread store. A lot of the inventory is gone.

We noticed that when we visited in the late summer.  It's very disappointing, but I see how they chased the money in that decision.  I'm not as disappointed in the inventory as I am in that we never see the actual working part of the mill any more.
