Kenny's Funland report is great....lol

That motorcycle jumper ride is probably the same one I rode at our local county fair back in the early 90s....lol

I wouldn't trust the swinger ride....lol

Iíll be honest... I never ride carnival rides.  I just donít trust them.  BUT I saw the carnival set up next to the Mall and decided to have a look around.  Sad part is, it had more rides than what they normally have at Jeff City Jaycees Fair

While I hate to see the "changing of the guard" and I really hate to see someone forced out of their position, I really feel it was time to go a new direction. I like all kinds of music and will often go from a metal show to a bluegrass show in the same night, I just could not get into his music. I tried for years... but I had trouble with the cajun and honestly most of the songs were very similar. It actually used to be a running joke between me and my daughter about that show...

I think that music ties to a different time... I am 46 but all of my friends are 26-30 and they detest cajun music. And I think that sometimes you just have to move on.

They have their own following like the Pickers do.  For me (personally) the only time I enjoy Cajun music is during Mardi Gras season.  They ought to see if Six Flags would like to hire them for their festival that runs in July

Was disappointed today the music wasn't playing in Fire in the Hole.  Asked one of the ride ops why and all he said was " sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't".

Antiquated sound cards in both FM/FITH are nearing the end of their shelf lives.  It just needs to be completely rewired and upgraded but that costs money and thereís not much ROI in doing that

A good algicide treatment also. It is so bad now it needs to be killed off. A definite eyesore.

The heat makes algae grow quickly.  Itís been stupid hot here lately

The outdoor effects will never happen again due to the new dining area ó and since the water out there is stagnant due to no longer having that blast you get the sewer water.

I really want to take my family to SDC to see all the lights but I am afraid of the crowds. I am thinking of visiting on Thursday, November 8th because I have read Thursdays are best but I wasnít sure if that held true with Veteamsís day being that weekend. Anyone have advice?

Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the best day to go

Wild Woody is by far the best imo....

How old is it? I remember wooden kart tracks similar to that going back to the '80s in Branson.

2001 - Lumber Jack
2002 - Wild Woody
2011 - Heavy Metal Highrise

All I will say is that thereís a lot of changes going on right now.  If theyíll be for the better remains to be seen.
