Branson Talk / Re: Shepherd of the Hills - New Adventure Park

I would say they were short on entries for the actually show...

the parade was little lacking also, lasted about 30-35 minutes, but I think they were trying to beat the rain..

I would expect next years to be bigger and better with more participants, With new management/owners, new money and more marketing.

On another note... the car show seemed to be a big success..   seemed to be lots of quality vehicles and the parade was pretty good..

Hopefully bigger next year..

something else that hasnt been mentioned yet...  why is the center area in this picture so open? is the next upper or lower floor the same?  Why?   maybe a big display/statue or steampunk artwork that stand 15-20 feet tall?

He said it would be on a platform about 30 feet in the air and then went on to say that it would be 90 feet from the star to the street.  FTR - the platform will be decorated as a large gift so technically it would count as part of the tree

I missed him saying it would be on a platform..... I thought I was listening close.... LOL..  guess not ::)

Looking forward to seeing Midtown this year.. The lights and New Facades will be great along with the new displays.
   
I did find it humorous the way Brad described the new Christmas Tree on Midtown...
 
"90 feet tall from the top of the tree to the street"...
   
Of course "we" know the tree will be sitting on the platform where the old treehouse was which is probably 30 - 40  feet off the street already... ;D

To all of those whining about the spinning, get over it. SDC has given us an amazing attraction. Such a great day.

Tyler, they have just as much of a right to formulate their own opinions as you do, to formulate their own.  Spinning is not for everyone.  My group even had qualms about that feature.

Agreed Swoosh, everyone has there right to opinion and concerns.   I would say just dont dwell on it too much, until next spring and we can see the final product.

There's a building in the middle of the course that's come tell missing from the animated preview. You could see it on the drone footage being Thomas and the Mack beanstalk.

NOTHING has been said by anyone about that building...??  it has a full concrete basemen/bunker under it.  But no indication of what it is...

Sitting in red gold now waiting for the announcement. I'm focusing on keeping the FB page updated since that is easiest. Lots of excitement! Swoosh and sdcfan88 are getting great footage.

I should have joined you!!!! ;D ;D

I appreciate the sentiment, but if it's visible from within the park or the road, people are going to see it. If they see it, they are going to take pictures and share them. The theme park paparazzi goes way back to even before the internet. It's just part of all the excitement leading up to the announcement.

My rule is that as long as there is no trespassing or rule breaking then go ahead - everyone's going to see it anyway. I don't want anything "leaked", but in this case everyone who has been to the park for the last month has seen this giant drop. They aren't exactly trying to hide it. OR's barrel rolls were kind of different because they really were trying to hide them, but I think they were too close to the train tracks so people figured it out anyway, aside from all the leaks.

The drop picture must have been taken by a sub contractor. The employees I know are smart enough to keep that stuff to themselves until the announcement has been made, but they've been bringing in all sorts of workers to finish the station. I wouldn't normally allow it, but it was already out and it didn't show much more than what we had already seen.

Thanks Shave...  That saves me from "defending" my actions!!!   LOL!!
