Obviously a long way to go before March 2018, but man I sure hope a sufficient update to the area in front of and around TNT & TT is still part of the overall development plan for the addition. That area is going to be an absolute nightmare to traverse if they do not address it.

Additionally, I know it's been mentioned that it appears an observation deck will NOT be a part of TT. Can anyone tell me why the PTB would not see value in allowing non-riding patrons or those on the fence about riding their largest ride investment to date the opportunity to watch the ride on action first especially given the already growing concerns about the presumed intensity of a spinning launched and inverted coaster? Just doesn't make an ounce of sense to me. Also seems like a miss given its location where a view from the front of the load station seems to almost overlook the majority of the circuit.

I would guess since in order to ride, you walk down stairs to the lower floor, and then circle around up to next floor and then finally the launch floor..  That may be the observations points... there are windows on those floors on the East side.. So?   Is that the observation area?

So I was at the park for a little while sunday morning.. 
I have a few pics of new building... what I could get..  LOL. 
few Pics of RR Engine on display at the depot, 
and several pics of the new Midtown Christmas Facades and displays. This area is going to look fantastic after dark!!.

you must be signed into FB to use this link...... Shave- Swoosh, use pics if you want to..... ;D

Like it or not, Christmas Season will soon be here and then over...  Winter is coming, shows shut down, SDC closed, Motels closed.....

DONT forget Classic Motor Inn is open ALL year around, We still have a great discount rate of 40.00  (talk to K.D.),  AND after the first of the year, I think the rate will only be 35.00 per night through most of MArch!  Thats right, cheap rooms for Spring Break!!

SO?  Goin to Branson? Christmas, ? Off Season? Next Year?  Give her a call..!

We Love this place.!

@MH,  yes the exit ramp is the entrance access for handicap....

I wondered about beverage/concession area,
But there would/should be water lines in that area also.. and there isnt..  (for now anyway). 
They could be added later...

Looks like it won't be a huge shop, not that it could be or needs to be. Wonder why it needs 4 sewer taps. Not a lot of room if people are going to have to move through it after exiting and stop to look at photos. Always looks smaller before it gets formed though.

Does look small, but will grow when framed in as you said..

Sewer taps? Hmm? that is odd. 
employee restrooms?  I doubt it...   
the center one may be a floor drain? 
that is an odd configuration for sure.

Maybe next year, they could review the man hours it took them to set up midtown this year and instead of working at night or on days when the park is closed, they could just wall off that section for a couple of weeks and work around the clock to get that area done. That way people can enjoy that section as normal as possible up until the last minute. I haven't seen it in person to see how it looks, but fall is one of my favorite times at the City and I always thought the park was at it's best then.


I dont think it looks that bad, considering the end result. 
Boarding off the area and closing it off, would look much worse.. IMHO.. :)

I'm excited to see the pay off. Sure does gum up midtown with all this hardware all over the place, but I don't know of any other way to do it. I've been thinking a lot about the way they put up Christmas lights and how I wish there were a simpler way, but I haven't come up with it yet. I'm sure they spend a LOT of time thinking and talking about it.

No doubt the "payoff" will be awesome..   I hope the response by the public is what the PTB expect it to be.

Sand, I thought something was mentioned last year about New Years Eve at the City. I know I heard it somewhere, because Hubs and I were looking forward to it.

I could not get any other details either,, 

I did tell them IF that was true....SDC better start advertising it.!!

 So, while I was in town this weekend, I talked to a couple of people close to the SDC family. I was told they are actually having a NYE party at the city for the public, was told they are going to bring in "The New Year"..??

According to the schedule they are closing at 7 pm on NYE day, and 8pm new years day..

Has anyone here heard anything about extended hours on NYE?
