In October of 19 the shuttle driver talked about it but I never heard/saw anything about it after that.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Rex Morton - Former SDC Coppersmith
« on: January 01, 2021, 04:54:32 PM »
I tracked down Rex Morton and was able to order/receive a gift for my wife for Christmas.

He is working from home in Missouri and can make anything you would have seen when he had the shop at the park. (I'm sure other custom stuff too if you ask)

If you would like to get a hold of him:

Thanks for the new information! I had decided to hold off on the gold passes even without the food discount on the regular SDC passes. Glad to see we will still get that!

Thanks, Pintrader.  Now, I need to remember which phone number we used . . . .

Thank you!

If you haven't visited the park is it still possible to covert your 2020 season pass to a 2021 for free?

I think if you buy regular tickets they already email you a barcode that you can scan from your phone. I assume the hold up for season passes is the concern of misuse but I have to wonder if this is any less secure than people using fake ID's etc.

I would love to have the option of using the app on my phone as my ticket and not have to carry around the paper version.

I have wondered what their attendance has been and also how many it takes to break even and justify being open.

However, SDC is choosing to follow CDC guidelines outside of what Branson requires.

The Branson aldermen had a meeting yesterday to debate a mask requirement. It was on YouTube and went over 7 hours -- vote postponed for 2 weeks. During the meeting someone said that SDC average attendance was 3000 per day.

If that is the case, how can SDC make enough money to stay open?

Please submit a detailed cost benefit analysis of indoor rides in reference to overall cost and customer retention. :-)

Most people start leaving the park when they feel rain, because there are not many rides or other things to do. Most guests are there for the rides, except during November and December. Some people will stick around during the rain and some guests know about the only 2 indoor rides. For most guests, rides get boring very quick, especially if there are no other rides open. Because of this, I think a new indoor ride, dark ride, or mix of both would help TREMENDOUSLY! It will keep more people in the park and it will also be the ride for those to go to when it's too cold or too hot outside but they dont want to get wet. The more indoor rides SDC has, the better chance they have of keeping most people in the park during certain or all weather conditions.

Though, anything that moves is likely perceived as "too extreme" to a lot of people complaining about the lack of new family additions.

I believe you have to drop some coin for a good dark ride but they sure could use another.  Specifically because they are not adding family rides older folks want to ride and SDC was built on family.  Dollywood has kept a good mix with the additions.  New coasters that were not record breakers but had appeal and flat rides to match.  SDC seems to be trying to "break records", I dont know if that is a long lasting strategy for this park.

I think that is all about ROI ----
Record breaking rides cost more money but they bring people to the park. We might all love dark rides but I doubt a new one would make headlines and really drive visitor numbers up.

I would assume that all future plans are fluid at this point. Any new ride is a huge investment and with the park closure earlier this year and now the low attendance numbers...I would expect they will be very conservative with their planned spending.


I would not be surprised if they use this to also replace AP.  I never thought about it before but yet, the building should have been a cave.  Oh well, still looks fun.

AP wonít be replaced anytime soon
