I kind of expected MRF to have its issues in its first season, as it is a very complex ride on top of a water ride. It seems like SDC is good at ironing out the issues of new rides after its first, maybe second season. Time will tell, though.

Some things have to be done, the park doesn’t have a choice.  Mystic River Falls needs attention. 

If you're allowed/able to answer, what's wrong with Mystic River Falls?? Is it just some kinks that they need to iron out?

Very good, now add Cinnamon Bread to the selection! (frozen, of course.)

Because, like what was said in the thread before, it would still be unmanageable at the old Sullivans Mill, even with the other store located by MRF. They weren't missing your original point, they answered it, you just skimmed over it.

Went to the park the very last night of Moonlight Madness and it was a blast. Got to ride all coasters besides Powder Keg at least once. I was hoping to ride Outlaw Run at night, but the line was too long and I wanted to get to the cinnamon bread place before they closed. I did get to ride MRF at least once. We waited about an hour and a half, and by that time the sun was already down. Whenever we got to the top of the elevator, my brother and I heard a loud BOOM and thought the ride broke down, but no. The fireworks were starting! So we got to see some of the fireworks at the very top of MRF. Overall a good night!

We're planning to purchase the "buy one day get the second free" and be there on August 9th for Moonlight Madness and spend half the week in a condo and doing stuff around Branson and go back to SDC on tuesday.

I've always had a weird fear about the storage water area that they use to put the extra rafts in (especially SFStL's Thunder River area), but man I really love this ride.

I can see them going back to some of the other ideas they had for TT and using those with the Vekoma (the mine, idea, perhaps? I can't remember the other ones).

Don't let the higher education mavens off the hook:  what passes for college education today is a national tragedy.  I say that as an insider struggling against the system.
I can definitely agree on that... Took college History 205/206 and we had to skim over most of history in the 1800's/early 1900's just to get to modern times in two semesters.

The reason? It would hurt someones feelings because of the Baldknobber history. I am surprised they have not removed it from Fire in the Hole as of yet. White men in hoods (in a historical sense) just dont do well in todays Zoomer standards.

Yeah, I'm just gonna stop you right there. Being a "zoomer" myself, there is a vast difference between the Baldknobbers and the Klu Klux Klan during that time period. The Baldknobbers were vigilantes. They opposed corruption in local governments, aided local law enforcement, etc. Compared to the KKK, who were about white supremacy in the 1880's and still are to this day about that. We have every right to be pissed off about the KKK and how they are still around. So yeah, the KKK doesn't do well in "today's zoomer standards" because of what they have done (lynchings, mobs, murders, against anyone who wasn't white) and the fact that they are still around today. I don't think any "zoomers" mind the Baldknobbers at SDC, especially the ones who grew up in the area and understand what they did.

Anyway, as for the sign, I've never saw the sign about the collapse, so that is new to me. I always thought you were supposed to imagine horses below you, or something like that.

One of my season pass tickets is not working. So I try to call the number...impossible to get hold of them. It just hangs up after saying they are getting high call volume. I have tried sending an e-mail on Silver Dollar City website, but they are not responding.

Need to get this fixed as I am going up end of this week, Needless to say, but I am very unhappy with their service. >:(
Scott, I think you answered your problem. There are a lot of people trying to refund their season pass after the whole mask fiasco. I'm sure once you get to the city that they can fix it there, or try calling another day?

Maybe they're keeping it underwraps because they think they can get it opened by the time they're able to do a soft opening? I'm sure if they do a soft opening and announce that MRF will be open when reservations (assuming that's what they're doing) start that it'll boost attendance and the number of reservations.

Wow I opened up a whole nest of murder hornets when I started this thread, huh?  I really didn't expect it to go in this direction but was hoping for maybe innovative ideas for the City to make it more safe.

Ok I'll throw out a potentially completely implausible idea. Inspired by online ordering and curbside pick-up at most restaurants these days, how about an online/app ordering system for shops, allowing guests while visiting the park to pick from a menu in the app for the most popular shops/items and have their purchases available for package pick-up when leaving. Then you don't have to open shops to guests which would eliminate some close-quarters contact opportunities in high-traffic areas, while also generating some revenue. You could also give elderly/at-risk employees a chance to work as "pickers," fulfilling orders without direct contact with guests/coworkers.

Now this is an idea I can get behind.

Fully open as in operating at normal crowd capacity, or just all of the rides and attractions open, or what? I wouldn't be surprised if they kept crowd levels down to a certain point all year.

I meant operating at normal crowd capacity, sorry. I'm sure they'll keep limits of lines/shows/etc

Sweden sees a dramatic drop after every weekend in positive cases but the one following this weekend was steeper, will be interesting to see and follow. I check in on Sweden every day as they haven't gone all Runner on us.

The only reasoning I've seen for the drop-offs during the weekend with the US is that the labs are closed on Sundays and couriers won't pick up samples on Saturdays, so it lags by 24-48 hours, which is why Mondays/Tuesdays see spikes in cases. So the same thing is presumably applied to Sweden.
