This is troubling. Big changes will come to the park if the numbers don't improve. It doesn't make sense to me that SDC is struggling while the six flags and cedar fair parks are surging. It's not like SDC is even that much more expensive, or has that fewer rides. I think the older generation that SDC has relied on to fill out it's numbers has finally moved on or been priced out. You guys aren't going to like what they will probably do to pander to the younger generations...

Really hope Pumpkin nights are a success.

Yes, these are poor numbers... The PTB "expected" 4500 on thursday, and 5500 on friday, and actually only about 1/2 that many showed up.

This summers numbers just seem weak to me.. I dont have the "connection" to find out if numbers are up? down? or WAAYY down?.   

Maybes someone else here can check with the PR dept and verify.. I would like to know.. 

We can only hope for a strong next 3 1/2 months, 

I dont think their country music days drew the crowd they were looking for, however I do know the local artists that played have a good local following and several of the bransonites did come out to watch them..  the artists- Billy Yates, Eastern Heights, The  Missouri Ploughboys and Matt Gumm are all local that either are in shows in town, and in bands after hours or do both..    obviously the local names wont or probalby did not draw people from to far away, since their name wasnt reconized.   Although Billy Yates is a very well country artist local, nationally and worldwide..

We don't need pomp and circumstance in LS. A decent sized fountain that circulates water and is possibly illuminated at night would be the only inexpensive touch needed to dress up what is nothing, but a small pond now. If they wanted to continue the block retaining wall in front of FL around the entire perimeter, that would be awesome as well, but not holding my breath.

That may or may not happen, 

But i was hoping for a simple block wall all the way around the pond.  that would give a nice clean edge to look at, easier to maintain and keep clean than a dirt bank.  something would match FL and tie in the new attraction.

Fountain in middle to keep water fresh looking would be a good touch too.

Thursday the 12th..  only 2900 people.... :-\

Maybe Country Music Days aren't a big draw. We usually go in September but we really didn't want to go to any of the Saturday night concerts and didn't consider the daily entertainment to be a reason to visit, either, since we usually go to SDC on Thursday or Friday.

Maybe, maybe not.. I know this year they are using several of the local Branson musicians at the park..   Maybe the names just arent big enough to draw people in,  maybe its just too early to tell..

Guys, c'mon, it's a freaking construction site, lol. I'm sure it will look nice when it's actually finished. This is why the put a giant ridiculous wood fence around all their construction sites.

Thanks for the photos everyone.

I'm sure they'll have no problem getting it done for next year. It's only mid September and it's half finished (from what I can tell anyway).

And remember they have an extra month before it opens, because water rides are not open for spring break days..  Lots of time left..

Woof, these numbers are rough. Hope that things are about to take off for pumpkin season for the park's sake.

They seriously need some days with 15-20,000 guests to pump their numbers back up.

Yes, these numbers look poor, over the weekend they "predicted" 4-5,000 more than what showed up..    Seems like there have been a lot of low attendence days this year.  NOT all weather related...  I agree, we need to see some huge days in the next 4 months...

great set of updated pics, thanks...   

as far as being behind schedule,  just how far behind so they consider themselves?  considering they have 7 more months before opening.  I would think they have time to finish... (Unless we have a terrible winter)..
