Is it going to remain a water ride or will they fill in the channel and make it dry?

Other Parks / Holiday World 2015 Project
« on: July 25, 2014, 05:30:42 PM »
I see where Holiday World announced their 2015 project last night.  It's going to be the world's first launched wing coaster.  It will be their biggest ever investment at $22 million dollars.  Looks like it's going to be a nice ride.  They have good info at their website.  First steel coaster for HW.

Dollywood Discussion / Re: American Pickers Pick for DW New Ride

I saw some of the stuff they picked when I was at DW back in April.  Really neat to see where it came from and how it got there.

Grandfather's Mansion??

I would still like to see some webcams scattered around the park so I can "visit" whenever I want...even in the offseason.

Back a few years ago my Dollywood Gold Pass also got me into SDC and Whitewater for free with half price admission to Celebration City.  That was a great deal as we spent a lot of time in both Branson and Pigeon Forge.  HFE did away with those benefits though and cut it to half price admission at SDC and WW.  The Gold Pass does get you free parking and 20% off food and merchandise at DW which helps.  Dollywood uses photo passes and they don't take too long to get.  Remember, you get the photo pass once and use that same one until it wears out. You simply renew your pass over the phone or internet and they just reactivate it.  So really the cost of the photo pass doesn't seem too bad when someone renews their pass for several years.  Renewal moves quickly because they already have all your info. SDC needs to go to the photo pass.

A better discount for food....20% maybe.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Spirit of '76

My parents were married in 76.  They picked up their free 14 season passes while at SDC at T'giving.  Just had to show a copy of their marriage license.  As has been stated, you just get the pass...no extras.

Had a great time at SDC this past Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Going all three days allowed us to do everything we wanted despite the large crowds.  The park stayed open an extra hour Friday the 27th (in addition to staying open later on Saturday), closing at 10 due to the good crowd.  Also on Friday all performances of "It's a Wonderful Life" were cancelled due to illness of several cast and crew members.  They had cancelled the final show on Thursday the 26th as well.  Was very crowded on Saturday, largest crowd I have ever seen at SDC and I have been caught in some big ones.  I saw some people get in line at noon when the park opened on Saturday for the 2pm Saloon Show.  Lines for the shows were long and formed very early.

Here in Mt. Vernon, Illinois (about 70 miles east of St. Louis) we have about a foot of snow on the ground and expecting another inch or so this afternoon before it finally quits.  This all started yesterday morning around ten and hasn't quit since.  Started out as sleet and freezing rain before changing to all snow.  It snowed a lot last night.  Going to start getting colder now with another chance of snow, sleet and freezing rain overnight Saturday into Sunday afternoon.  Can't believe this time last week I was in Branson enjoying some wonderful weather for T'giving.  My how things can change so quickly...it was almost 70 here Wednesday afternoon.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: SDC Christmas Ornament Check List
« on: December 03, 2013, 05:44:53 PM »
Went to pick up our ornaments last Thursday night and they would not give my wife one (she had one fewer trip than the rest of us this year) saying she only attended four events. I knew that wasn't right as they said Family Spring Break Days did not count.  I knew they did but could not convince the young man working the season pass booth of it.  We stopped by guest relations the next morning and got it worked out.  She received her ornament.  I wonder how many others have been denied ornaments because the folks in the season pass booth were not counting Spring Break?  Hopefully not any.

Branson Talk / Re: Shepherd of the Hills Play Closing
« on: October 15, 2013, 05:31:20 PM »
Driving back into town from SDC this past Saturday night it looked like things were really hopping at Shepherd of the Hills.  It was the largest crowd I had seen in a long, long time.  The parking lot was full, there were a bunch of trams running and a long line for dinner.  It reminded me of the glory days when large crowds were common but made me sad to think the play is going away.
