Are you going to swing by the projects on the Strip too?

LOL.  Of course I am!..   Will for sure get pics of Bigfoot area, (which should be almost complete),  and the new mountain coaster..

I honestly think all of that excavating is for the footers.   There's no bedrock in this area so the footers are having to be bigger than normal to prevent eventual slippage due to settling.   They've learned a lot from PK.  They've had to go in numerous times over there to re secure footers to prevent slippage.

Thats very true,,
I also wonder though, IF, since it is up in the "corner" of the project if there will be a big turn? Pivot? or something else. Those footers are obviously going to support some major weight

I'm here as we speak. K.D. is very nice and we got the SDC fans discount. Great room! Pillow top mattress is so comfortable! Was gonna go to SDC wed/thu but it's going to rain Wednesday, so KD directed us to Country Market to buy half price tickets for Thursday. Will definitely make this my go to place to stay.

Glad you like it..  enjoy your trip, hope thursday is dry for you..

Nice video,   Looks like that could easily be a "brother" to what SDC is getting..  I am not the coaster guru, that many of you are.  But the basics and logistics of the track running back and forth above and below other track....   yea, that could work.

Maybe that ugly, abandoned place, Indian Ridge, on the way to Branson West would be a good place for it.

Perfect, maybe they could salvage and revamp couple of the condos and use them as the ski lodges..

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Week of car show weekend
« on: April 16, 2017, 02:29:17 PM »
Thanks for the responses, about what i expected for the weekend. What about the m-th befre the weekend or the m-th after the weekend? Thats really my curiosity...as in, do more people come to sdc/branson the week of or after the show, too?
Seems all responses were about the weekend, if someone meant week of and i misread it my apologies.

I think you will find m-th doable either week.. 
week after would be much better, except SDC is closed on tues and thurs..   BUT would NO extra traffic, 
the week before bulk of people roll in late wed/ thursday.,  but hang around town.
