General Silver Dollar City Talk / 5-Alarm Grand Opening
« on: April 06, 2015, 06:04:56 PM »
FYI: Saturday is the grand opening for Fireman's Landing.  Festivities will start around 8:40am at the Gazebo with a performance by California High School's Pinto Pride Band followed by presentations by the Herschend brothers and other guest speakers.  Next a parade to Fireman's Landing will occur featuring a bag pipe band in the lead followed by numerous firefighters, golf carts with dignitaries and the California's band.  At the new area there will be two more short speeches from the 2nd story balcony of Fire Station No. 3, ribbon cutting and another performance by California's band.

All of the area's major media outlets will be in attendance. If you want to witness the ceremonies you should plan to arrive early.

Construction/Rumors / Your 5 Year Plan for SDC
« on: August 08, 2014, 07:13:53 PM »
I know we have a lot of "arm chair imagineers" here on our board - so I am curious what your 5 year plan would be for SDC.  Start with 2016 since 2015 is obviously already in place.

I'll add mine here eventually, just curious what you would do -- keep it as reasonable as you can, but at the same time money is not an issue.  ;D

2. How about them gheyhawks!  They lose to Villanova in basketball (oh yeah, well just wait until... wait until... oh ####)

3. Mizzou Volleyball - UNCONTESTED SEC CHAMPS!  34-0!!!

Random Talk / Who's your Daddy and what does he do?
« on: July 01, 2013, 12:09:50 AM »
Ok, not really.  But I couldn't help but think of that line from Kindergarten Cop when I decided to post this thread.

Curious where everyone is from and what line of work they are in.  We all have this wonderful common interest, but it is always neat to see what people do for a living (something tells me that there are a lot of teachers on this board)

I'll start.

I'm the Director of Bands at Moniteau R-I Schools in California, MO (well for 9.5 months out of the year). 
I do free lance marketing/publicity/photography during the summer months and I'm the head editor of MidwestInfoGuide.COM

Just wanted to give you a heads up in case it had not arrived yet.
For those of you that have not received it yet, here is your thread to complain about that fact.  ;D

Not to get me a cup of coffee and take a look at it.

The park looks amazing.  EVERYTHING has been redone.  New slide tower is awesome too.

Other Parks / VERRUCKT - Schlitterbahn Kansas City 2013
« on: May 24, 2013, 08:58:02 PM »
I'm not sure if you have been following this or not, but VERRUCK will be the tallest and fastest waterslide in the world when completed. The only stats that they will give out is that it will be 10% taller than Insano (currently the tallest slide in the world) when completed.

Here is the first construction update for the ride

 We currently have footers and slide pieces on site.
 They "claim" that it will be open by early July. It has been testing in New Braunfuls at the home office most of the winter. In mock-up size and full portions as well.
