This book about Shad sure sounds like a great pickup.  I saw the man on several occasions but don't remember ever talking to him.  I sure wish I had.  I always wondered if he really knew the blacksmith trade or if he was just character acting for the city.  It probably was a little bit of both.  I just know it would not have took much to fool me because I knew nothing about it.

I am going to guess and say the bridge the train goes over.  The underneath side!

Heck! Lets take it down the maintenance road till we find some hills.  I remember riding the flooded mine back in 1972 and they had a live donkey or mule in one of the scenes.  Boy did he ever smell.

Random Talk / Branson preshow
« on: May 26, 2010, 08:48:06 PM »
Has anyone seen the Branson preshow on youtube?  It's interesting and has a pretty catchy tune and lyrics.  It would be pretty cool if they used this for opening ceremonies for this year.

It would help a lot if they would just open the doors to the shows a little sooner. At least around Powder Keg it would help the congestion part.

We have 5 children between 9 and 14 years of age. We spent about an hour every time we visited also. The kids loved it! What kid doesn't want to be drenched. Me being 50, not so much. I also loved the waterboggan before the changes were made to it. It was a lot smoother ride and you could actually keep your eyes open thru the entire ride without water putting them out. I heard a big problem was injuries. Was this problem before or after the changes, or did they continue during both time frames? It appeared to me just watching that a lot of injuries occured at the end of the ride with heads either going forward or backward.

I believe this is at the River Blast.  On side of Carousel Barn.

a 5-year plan to revitalize FITH including bringing the collapsing bridge back. 
I figured the revitalization was complete with all the changes that were put in this year.  Has anyone heard of any more changes that are going to be made in the future? It would be a really neat thing to bring it back to the way it was when opened in 1973. I remember  when you met the train light steam would come up on both sides like you were about to collide with a real locomotive. Also I remember a scene with what looked like a couple of stuffed wolves. There was a lot of blue lights in this area and made the cement where the wolves were standing look like freshly fallen snow. It was real quiet in this area except for the howling of the wolves. Just wondered if anyone had heard any more rumors.

The largest group I ever went with was probably about 40 people in 1973. but that probably don't count because it was a school trip and we all split up into 2's or 3's. It was one of the best times I ever had at the city. You could imagine a bunch of 13 year olds running around sdc.

Random Talk / Re: Your opinion on taking pictures
« on: May 14, 2010, 10:53:55 PM »
Fellow visitors at sdc have never bothered me while taking pictures. I always find it interesting to see what they are taking pictures of. But on the other hand the thing that bothers me the most is sdc employees asking if they can take my picture. Usually I am asked in front of the ticket booths and again right before I get to the turnstiles to enter. Then sometimes I am asked before I enter the Hospitality House and again just after I exit the Hospitality House. Makes me feel a little guilty saying no thanks to the same people several different times. Also it kind of makes me feel my space is being invaded. Asking a person once should be enough.

We were in line getting our season passes sunday and I asked the clerk how many people they expected this saturday.  She said the estimate was 15,000 to 16,000.  Seems a tad low to me but then it depends a lot on the weather. ???

I went to sdc for the first time this year yesterday.  I was a little disappointed in the opening ceremonies.  I was expecting company's coming, wonderful day, grand old flag. Maybe it was time for a change, and possibly it will return next year.  How does everyone else feel about this.
