Construction/Rumors / Re: Christmas at Silver Dollar City
« on: December 06, 2017, 06:01:01 PM »

there's an easy solution to that.  Don't watch the first parade.  skip it, go do some rides in areas away from the parade or see if they have a show you can watch during it.  Then watch the second parade when the crowds have thinned out tremendously and you won't have to fight for a spot- even on the square.

Parade time isn't a bad time to check out the train, of if you have people that want other rides, it's a great time for Fireman's Landing, Expo, Barn Swing, or Outlaw Run.  :-)

We went on a Friday night the weekend before the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and we waited until the 2nd parade.  It seemed just as crazy and packed as I have seen it up on the square.

Construction/Rumors / Re: Future SDC Development Speculation (Long-term)

Maybe instead of trying to cram as many people in there as they can get maybe they should start cutting off entrance when a max capacity of people is reached.  That will never happen I am sure but is one idea.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Season passes
« on: December 06, 2017, 05:53:56 PM »
Thanks for the feedback.  Last year we also got season passes to Frontier City OKC which includes Whitewater there and the wife and kid liked it.  We did not get that this year.  I think I may try the double park SDC this year instead of also getting Frontier City.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Season passes
« on: December 04, 2017, 06:42:09 PM »
I'm fixing to order season passes and thinking about doing the 2 park pass.  I usually only do SDC.  Is White Water worth adding?  I am not a big water park person but the wife and kid likes it.

The parade is starting to get crazy.  When we were there weekend before last on Sunday, we had to start lining up nearly 2 hours before it starts.  If you don't, you wont get a spot.  When waiting people are lined up shoulder to shoulder, they have areas roped off for people to be able to walk past the people lined up on the parade route.  People still push thru the line of people, wanting you to move so they can get thru instead of walking a few feet down.  I am normally a nice person but after moving for people for 2 hours, or simply getting knocked out of the way I start to become less nice.  It almost seems to me they need to rope off the route, especially up by the square, instead of just having the white lines painted on the ground.  Maybe I am off base or maybe I am just crazy.

We arrived yesterday (Saturday) about an hour before opening and still had to park in lot 5. It was busy but I have seen worse. We left about 2 and people were pouring in at that time. Going back today and will leave after the parade.

We went last weekend.  Stayed till 9 on Friday.  Lights were great.  It was not all that busy, was just about right.  Saturday was OK as well, started getting busy by the time we left at around 2pm.  We are going again this weekend, heaven help us.  The only reason is because the wife made plans with a friend of hers to use our guest passes, which turned out go into effect Sunday.  After I realized what weekend she was talking about, I told her its a huge mistake and will be a zoo in Branson this weekend.  I plan on getting there about an hour before opening tomorrow, and may or may not stay into the night.  Will have to go back Sunday to get the guests in.  Will probably stay till after the 1st parade then head home.  Hopefully sunday will not be too bad.

Branson Talk / Re: Classic Motor Inn 2017 417-334-6991 (talk to Katy, K.D.)

After calling back and talking to a different person she did honor the rate. Evidentially when they start running low on rooms they donít offer the $40 rate.

Just tried to reserve a room for this weekend.  They have rooms available but would not honor the rate.  We have a reservation for next weekend we made last week and they honored it for then.  Never had a problem with this before.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: OTC The day before Thanksgiving.
« on: November 10, 2017, 01:40:14 PM »
So is the 24, 25, and 26th likely going to be mad house crazy busy?  I fear it will be but the wife has plans for us to go that weekend with some friends so they can use our free passes. I am thinking about running up there this Sunday and just coming back the same day.  Surely it won't be that bad.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Old Time Christmas
« on: October 23, 2017, 10:15:57 AM »
I was thinking about going to the city this coming weekend but then got to thinking about OTC opening soon and might wait a week for that.  We usually go a couple of times while it is going on and it is usually a mad house. When it the least busy time to go?  Is opening weekend of it usually packed, or no?  I figure the close to Christmas you get, the busier it gets.

Branson Talk / Yakov theater
« on: October 19, 2017, 11:31:36 AM »
So what is going on with the Yakov theater?  We were in Branson a couple of weeks ago and I believe the acrobats were performing there, but it appears they are now in the old RFD location.  If that is the case, is Yakov sitting empty?  Just curious.

Random Talk / Re: Site has been quiet?
« on: October 04, 2017, 09:45:16 AM »
It sure has been.  I have not been on here for a couple of days and nothing new.  I guess with the big reveal not much else to talk about yet?  BTW I was planning on going up to the city weekend before last and had a room reserved at Classic but the alternator went out on the car in Joplin and had to be towed back home.  Thinking about going either this weekend or waiting till fall break week.  I am a little worried its going to be way too busy fall break weekend.

I had a burrito there but it was so stuffed I had to use a knife and fork to eat it.  Are the bowls basically whatever you put in the burrito but without the tortilla?
