At first they were having you fill out a small questionaire but now you do not even need to do that.  If you did not use your season pass it will rollover automatically and you should receive it or them between January 18 and March 20, 2021.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: SDC Launches New Online Store

I have always told myself SDC knows what they are doing and knows what will work and not work.  But it just amazes me that it has took this long to come up with an online store.  It really seems this was a no-brainer and should have been done at least 10 years ago if not longer. 

Now if they will just come up with some retro t-shirts and other apparel and not just ball caps they might just be in business.

I think I read somewhere they are talking about the trailblazer pass and photo cards and a few other things when talking about "premium On-Park Experiences".

They have gradually cut down the bring a friend over the last few years.  I was just comparing BAF from 2020 to 2021 with early purchase of season pass (looks like no difference).

I believe there might be a pretty big complaint when season pass holders realize they are not getting any food discounts for 2021.  I believe this and the gold pass is probably an income makeup for last year.  I mean when you take a 10% discount away on all food purchased by season pass holders...that is quite a bit of income.

But then again a 20% discount on the gold pass would be pretty nice if you made enough trips and ate at the city a lot.

Yeah it looks like the number of BAF free passes are being nearly cut in half (from 5 to 3) for the standard pass. Losing the meal discount is a bit disappointing too.

Not sure where your getting 5 free BAF passes.  In the first packet for 2020 I received 3 free and 1 for $30 and it looks like they are offering the same thing for 2021.

Now they did offer the bonus opening day BAF because season pass holders missed the 3/17 to 5/17 BAF.

Speaking of this years pass extended until may or whenever it is. I am assuming that also includes my TB pass?  If I want to pay $50 to extend, what is the cost to extend the TB pass portion?

If you have already visited in 2020 and used the TrailBlazer Season Pass it has automatically been extended through June 13, 2021. A specially-priced TrailBlazer Extension will be available in 2021.

If you have not used your TrailBlazer Season Pass at all 2020, it will be automatically rolled over to a 2021 TrailBlazer Season Pass good for the entire season.

So they will give one BAF ( Opening day>?) and 2 others.  One for later summer and one for late in the year.  The other is a $25 ticket that if history repeats you get in the mail anyway.  Seems like I got 5 this year in my packet, I will check.  I didn't ever go or use any at all so will I revive "like" tickets or the new plan?  I am kind of confused and it does seem like they have cut back.  If masks are still in play next year I may just get my money back.  That has been a deal breaker for me ( and many others it seems).   

The way I understand it is if you rolled it over you will receive a brand new packet as if you were buying the 2021 season pass for the first time, and would receive it between January 18 and March 20.   I would imagine it will be pretty much the same as the 2020 pass that you rolled over.

 I received 4 BAF in this year's packet with 3 being free and the other at around $25 or $30.

If you have used your season pass this year it will end on June 13, 2021 but you can pay $50 plus tax to extend it to December 30, 2021.  Plus you get bonus bring a friend tickets.

I am sure in the near future they will have an option for JUST 2021 season pass purchases.

I am a little surprised that SDC is closed every Monday and Tuesday until Dec 21.  This seems like a golden opportunity to make up for some of the  revenue from missed days this year.  Of course they know a lot more than I do about the attendance and employee situation for adding extra days.

Wednesday and Thursday are pretty slow all fall-Christmas, adding 2 more days would mean staffing issues. Right now all staff can work all 5 days they are open for 8 hours and not hit overtime, if they are open 7 days a week then you have to stagger days off for everyone. They seem to already be having an issue with staffing, that would just make it worse.
   

Your right they are fairly slow on weekdays during a NORMAL year because they can pack 20,000 to 25,000 on any given day, especially weekends.   They still have in place max attendance of around 10,000 last I heard. 

Could be a staffing problem but without indoor shows it should open up extra staff especially around the Christmas festival.  These are different festivals but they just came off Moonlight Madness where they were running 7 days a week, so not like it is a whole new situation for them.

No one has posted about attendance on here lately, so not sure what numbers they are hitting.  I am sure they are down quite a bit so maybe everyone is pretty much getting into the park that wants to without adding extra days.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Cinnamon Bread.....Please Help!

Still, a thousand percent better than the dry, tasteless cinnamon rolls at Eve & Delilah's Bakery at the entrance. Their stuff tastes like some cheap plastic wrapped roll from a convience store! Maybe even dryer, and more tasteless!

To each their own I guess....but I think they are a lot better than store bought.  We always ask if they can nuke it for a few seconds and it bounces back pretty good.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Any Pumpkin Nights / Christmas News?
« on: September 15, 2020, 08:31:37 AM »
Pumpkin Nights has great potential and I would expect them to expand some, but this year looks like they will be hampered in that expansion (attendance).   It would be counterproductive to expand too much with limited guests allowed in.

The Christmas reservation system is going to be interesting to say the least.  I would think they would try to snub the season pass holder since they already have received that money.  Let's face it season pass holder is old money and wouldn't be like the vacationers and people that just come to the park once a year for this event.   It's also possible attendance is knocked down enough this year with everything going on that it won't be a big problem and few would be turned away.

Taking it into January might work but not sure how many people will have the Christmas spirit in the middle of January.
