Branson Talk / Re: Ozark Valley Inn - 2020 - 417-336-4666 !!!!!

Total paid at OVI was 52.69. We paid more at HOF even though DH called directly and asked for the discount when he made the reservation.

Thats a good rate, glad you were able to get it...

If there is ever a question about HOF, talk to Michele at All Access..   It is way easier to have her make the reservations and put in proper rate..

AS always, IF there is ever a question, i can be contacted through PM here, and I will call or contact Michele and find out where the "miscommunication" is..

We stayed there on Thursday night 7/9 at the discount rate. We did have to stay upstairs though. I actually liked the upstairs room we had better than the ones we have stayed in downstairs. Breakfast was available, pool was open.

 We tried Hall of Fame 2 weeks ago but like OVI better.

Good to hear, 
No doubt OVI has more "goodies" to offer,  and if you are able to get in on the Discount rate..  makes it a great deal.!!
What $$rate did you pay?

  Best $ on park in the $12 breakfast 20%? off with the pass.  That is a good deal.

Are they still doing this.  is it Buffet now? or they fill you plate for you?

As far as Gettin' Basted, I am done with them.  That place is WAY overpriced, they do not give you much food, and I am not really that impressed. 

WOW! I am surprised,   Sorry to hear that.

I was in there a couple of weeks ago,
wife had her favorite "Moink" burger with pork rinds couldnt finish it as usual.
I had the Rib Platter "Naked" (no sauce).   Big ribs, big order of fries,
we both had leftovers..LOL...  of course we started with their nachos and 4 of us split that!!!
Good service,  cold drinks.

Big Portions, Good taste, didnt notice any price increase, But I always have 3 or 4 Coronas with mine.

I will be back, have loved that place and food since the Starlite..

Nope, the new black outs do not work with our schedule.  I did book a couple of nights there thru Travelocity which was cheaper than our rate.  I ended up cancelling it and booking at the Honeysuckle inn for a couple of nights.  Stayed there 2 weekends in a row.

That is my problem there too.. its a shame, I really did like the staff and staying there..    IF you dont need a pool and just some place to sleep, Call Michele, only 50 bucks..

I have a feeling it was the insurance cost of the cruise that made them pull out and not the time it takes. I know a lot of things that have been "cancelled" due to rising insurance costs and at the end of the day they could not stomach it - or afford it

Just another excuse they can or are using.

The cruise was a huge event for the area, hotels, motels, Groceries, Bars, Restaurants, Shopping Mall and the list goes on. Without the Cruise, the town as a whole loss millions of dollars in Revenue.

Bottom line is they (SOTH) did not think they were getting enough of the "pie", so they cancelled it.    They are putting lots of money into stuff out there.(as listed) Appears they are trying to get people to come out and not leave the property except to sleep. 

LOL!!  Yep I have strong feeling on this topic as do others..!!

Also, went to SOTH play on the night of the 4th. They had a decent crowd probably 50% of capacity and did very well at social distancing people. I am not a show person but my GF had never seen it and wanted to. It was a great thing to do on a beautiful cool evening. Speaking of SOTH , It is great to see the owners throwing a lot of money to make it relevant in the current age. A new Zipline course, restaurant, and the rope courses they added earlier. They are also adding a small gauge train to tour the homestead in.

veterans memorial museum is vastly underrated....agreed. I could spend hours in there with my dad. Great place to go. And the Mountain Coaster on 165 is good to go. Hit Dana’s down the road after for some pork bbq nachos or a bbq baked stuffed potato. There is a lot to do if you plan stuff out. We are a couple in our 50’s.

As far as SOTH activities, I wont support them. Since the new owners elected to NOT do the summer cruise saying it took too much of their time to put it on...  Odd since the cruise has been in town for years (literally). Their decision cost the town millions of dollars in revenue for that week, with no recourse to them..

Agreed the Veterens museum is great..

Mountain coaster on 165 is pretty nice, not sure if they have the Zip line open or not, never see anyone on it.
BBQ Nachos?  Make sure you try the ones at Gettin' Basted.. I think they are the best in town.!

Saw that Mystic River Falls does have a max height limit of 6'5". I don't know if that is temporary or not but its pretty dissapointing in my opinion. I barely meet it (I'm 6'3") but my friend is 6'7" so he wont be able to ride when we go down.

Tell your buddy to bend his knees a little,
slump his shoulders,
wear tennis shoes with thin soles,
And No hat
he will be fine..!

Sad? Sounds to me like a unforeseen issue.  I guess they could have waiting top em it till they ran this pipe but maybe they waved to get people riding and fix that later.  Some folks have to nitpick things

Unforeseen and easily compensated for later.. 
fix it and move on..~~

That, and there is already another person posting in SDC's passholder group on facebook that they rode this morning. It seems that they're only letting roughly 50 people in line, and even that doesn't guarantee a ride as a lot of people towards the end of the line have been saying that the ride often shuts back down before they can board. I'm sure that more people will be able to experience it each day as they make further adjustments, though.

EDIT: It may have been a different group as I can't seem to find the post anymore. It had some really interesting photos that show the area around the first lift and elevator area.

perfect way to shake the bugs out of it..  day by day..  It will be ready soon
