General Silver Dollar City Talk / JoDee Herschend
« on: November 26, 2018, 12:01:37 PM »
In case you havenít heard yet, I hate to be bearer of bad news... JoDee Herschend lost her fight Sunday with cancer.  I donít know all of the details other than she came home from the Mayo Clinic for Thanksgiving. 

Those who had the privilege of meeting this special lady in person know how big of a loss this is to the SDC family. 

Fly high, JoDee.

Does there seem to be any signs of construction or markings around AP, FITH, and fL? Besides what we have seen so far at LR?

There are no markings around AP, FITH, and FM.
There are markings all around Riverfront and LR

Just picked up a 1993 ornament.  I honestly did not know this one existed.

Thanks for the pics Swoosh!

When we were there Nov 15-18, we spoke with one of the shopkeepers at White River Mercantile. According to her, she claims the shop will be removed completely, and they are moving into where Cowboy Jeps currently resides (midtown). She seemed sad the shop will be in a much smaller blueprint and was also commenting on the hardwood floors; she said she always loved the old wooded floors and hated to see them ripped up and thrown away.

Yep.  Hereís a map of what has been ďconfirmedĒ as being removed.
Still curious if this area will even be open to guests next season

Photos from Wednesday 11.21
New "land bridge" has been constructed over the canal of Lost River
and they have begun moving dirt and more in the queue area.

https://www.midwestinfoguide.com/2018/11/riverfront-redevelopment-sdc.html

Is this land bridge in the same place where a "temporary" or "portable" bridge is normally placed for maintenance?

Iím not sure.  It is right next to the entrance/exit to Ribhouse

I am surprised they didnt drain it..  Maybe waiting until january to pump it dry..

And they may be waiting for the fence.. when the drain all the water, the lake is going to look bad!!, Muddy, Trash! Crap!  yes it will look bad..!
From what Iíve heard it was pretty much drained and then it rained.   ;D

I have no emotional connection with AP....I'd love them to repurpose that area and create a new water ride.

Iíd love for that whole area to be rethemed as a real lumber camp

...with Jim Owen's Float Trip.

Maybe more like the Log Flume at KBF

Instead of tearing out old classic rides, do they not have enough land that they could add new coasters or rides beyond the current footprint of the park?

Has nothing to do with lack of land and more to do with the lack of adequate upkeep back in the day finally catching up with them.

Best Case scenario would be they copy what was done at Dollywoods version. (Blazing Fury) It was apparently retracked a while back. Only concern is if they retheme it to be more PC friendly as it has already been done with a couple scenes. (gun shooting/hanging scenes)

Weíve long passed best case scenario.  The building is the real issue, not the ride itself. Iíd be surprised if they DONíT bulldoze it and build new.  There are a lot of new tricks they could incorporate and Iím not sold that the PTB would see the value in renovations vs new.  The ROI is better with new hence why so much of the old park keeps being leveled for newer versions.
