General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Silver Dollar City - Online Survey
« on: August 14, 2013, 05:29:00 PM »
Agreed Runner.  I started taking the survey and thought "is this thing ever going to end?".  Some of it seemed repetitive to me.  I finished it though but agree it should have been shorter.

Good review Hiker Dan.  I too got very frustrated with the PK operator who kept wanting to sing Happy Birthday every third or fourth train.  Unload, load and move the train out is what I say. Keep the line moving!

Also enjoyed your review Doug from Tulsa.  Sounds like you had a good time despite the rain.

Just noticed that it appears Dollywood will be announcing their next project August 21st.  Anxious to see what it is.

Revamping that area could help spread out the crowds at Christmas.  Other than the show venues, really not much to do down that way when it is too cold for water rides.

Does anyone think we'll see different trains next year with over the shoulder restraints?

Good post MHGuy.  I agree with all your points.  But like Sanddune said, it should be better next summer when they spread the Madness out over a longer time frame.  I know I'll catch heat for saying this of the things (and there aren't that many) that frustrates me about SDC is the fact they do not handle large crowds well...they just can't seem to keep the lines moving (with the exception of a couple of rides).  Unfortunately, with my work schedule, sometimes I have to visit during busy times and it frustrates me to see rides not ready to open on time, only running one train on a coaster, shops and restaurants closed, workers taking forever to load a ride, etc.  But it seems they are going to take MM more seriously next summer (now if we could just get them to take spring break more seriously) and offer a better effort. From what I have hear the "Great American Summer" has worked pretty well for Dollywood.

Been frustrated the last two days at sdc as Powderkeg has failed to open on time. Made an extra effort to get there first thing and it was down for the first hour and a half or so.

Thanks for all your help this past weekend Paige.  We enjoyed our visit as usual.  Nice to meet the Cheeseheads.

Gilligan....they are listing the saloon show as "new" this year and calling it "The Showdown at the Silver Dollar".  The description asks "Can the Saloon gang cause Murphy to mend his wicked ways?"  They are bringing back Mean Murphy.  The website says it was supposed to open yesterday (the 11th) and it is on today's show schedule.
