Can we get ahold of him?
The lady at sdc forwarded my email to three other people and nothing. She was bothered by it too.

SDC Memories/ Park History / What IS this song??!

Click on the above youtube link. This is the chain drop song, not sure if its still used. But I cannot track down its title and who sings it (though i can picture a guy who used to sing it live at the gazebo at SDC)
Fast forward to 40 seconds to get the really recognizable part.
I have even emailed SDC...they have no idea. I find that strange. :-\
Hopefully someone here knows it!

White Water Discussion / Re: SDC and White Water in one day
« on: June 06, 2017, 12:17:25 PM »
I respectfully disagree with Humphrey, if you do this you have to hit SDC first and you have to arrive to the park at least 45 minutes before chain drop. Weekend traffic getting in after 11 is guaranteed to suck...and probably sooner than that. As others have said you could spend the whole day at sdc unless they are only interested in rides in which case plan out your route beforehand and you can be done by noon or 1, but that almost seems like a waste.

Its possible to do what you are saying but be aware that you cannot lollygag around in the morning in getting to the park. Also be aware that you will have a late day to get your moneys worth. And be preapared for them and you to be exhausted, perhaps so much so that after Wendys they arent too excited about WW or the adults wont be excited about a drive home.

I dont know your situation but SDC, wendys, a nap, putt putt golfing etc., a cheap hotel and white water the next day would be your best bet. Good luck.

Construction/Rumors / Re: Lucky Silver Mine Restaurant at SDC
« on: May 17, 2017, 08:13:25 PM »
At least one of them has been around for quite some time...i know because i sat there with a sibling and some cousins the last time my cousins came which was 15 or 16 years ago...my how time flies....
Anyway, we always made a point to eat there and had never seen it before then but hope we see someone sitting there now so we can watch.
The funny part was none of us kids really noticed. The waitress told the adults and they were laughing because we were just shoveling it in not noticing, and then the waitress came out and yelled "WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY TABLE?"
It was great. Mom still talks about it.

Branson Talk / Re: Shepherd of the Hills. Not going to Open

Im stunned. Absolutely cannot believe it.
History is why I fell in love with SDC and the Branson area. The memories are sadly becoming permanent instead of recurring.

The whole place, or just the show? Please tell me the park and Old Matts is still open?
Either way this is a terrible thing to happen.  :'(

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Week of car show weekend
« on: April 16, 2017, 10:31:05 AM »
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.

Branson Talk / Re: Snow Slopes Coming to Branson Area..
« on: April 16, 2017, 10:14:33 AM »
That's why I said what I said about it being along 65 in Arkansas plenty of open hillsides but that fake experience is nearly the same as the real and Liberty hosts competitions featuring all the top names like Shawn White.

This exactly the type of diversification needed in the Branson area to grow the tourism base, just wish it was part of a grander vision.

I applaud them for putting their tails on the line financially



Its still ugly as hell. Spin it whichever way you want but not every place in the world needs a roller coaster or attraction plopped down on it. Plenty of places that are already ugly for this kind of albatross. Reminds me of when Branson started blowing off the tops of mountains for shopping malls.

Post of the year.
Obsession with shiny new things blinds us from what we already have.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Week of car show weekend
« on: April 13, 2017, 01:58:05 PM »
Ive never been down around the time of the car show in august. Is everything super busy the whole week? Id imagine sdc and branson are busy during the actual weekend, but im wonderin more about the week days leading up to it and after. Thanks for replies  :D

Yes your fears are out of line. 
No the park is not regional - unless that region includes Louisiana and Texas all the way up to Minnesota. 

Usually I just let you guys drone on with your faux outrages but you're beyond ridiculous this time and have taken it to the next level.  My goodness it must be complete hell to feel the need to find something in every change (most for the better) and completely disregard any attempt of enjoying yourself while at the park.

Oh and since you're already worked up - ignore the streamlining of light fixtures in certain areas this season.  I'm sure that'll send some of you to the corner in a fetal position.
Oh look everybody, the board asshole is back doing what he does best, being high and mighty! Our own little Napoleon to tell us how naughty we all are from his self-anoited throne.
Must suck to be you. Seriously.

My goodness you must be fun at parties. 
Quick question, do you have a spare tinfoil hat?
Oh and you may approach the throne and kiss my ring now. 


 ;D ;D ;D
I see what you did there. Props.
i dunno if im fun, but at least im not the guy walkin around lookin for someone to disagree with....or saying "look at my website so i can feel important"  8)
And it aint a hat, its a security system  ;)
Sorry folks. Lets go back to this survey which obviously means nothing and was always intended as merely a waste of time and resources.

Even with it being unseasonably warm...I see some snowflakes out today  :-\

Lighten up and grow some thicker skin folks....it's an internet forum about an amusement park.
Exactly, swoosh needs to lighten up. It aint the end of the world when people opine about an amusement park. I know we didnt check with him first so he could give us his ego-filled opinion but still..
