You are such an excellent ambassador for the park's devoted fans.

I was in the area today for work so I decided to take a little detour and cruise the strip.  It was a ghost town, but even at that, still got stuck behind somebody going about 20mpg.  I dont know why people suddenly forget how to drive once they get out there.  I ate lunch at the Grand Country and there were about 2 other people in there with me.

How many here remember when 76 was the only road, and those bumper stickers on the front of local cars that said, "I'M A BRANSON NATIVE AND I'LL HELP YOU TURN LEFT!"

And they would stop so that you could.

Zombie Thread Alert!  :o

The real question is why you felt the need to revive it

Less than three months makes it a zombie thread?

The real question is why you felt the need to question why another member wants to comment on something.

-12 here, so no chance of snow ("It's a dry cold!")

Meanwhile my sister in western Arkansas reported mid 30s and rain... and she can keep it. I'd rather be below zero.

As we hadn't used our season passes at all, I stopped by guest relations to see if we could switch my wife's pass over to my son's gf and save us $60 to get in. The lady at guest relations looked up the account, saw it hadn't been used and got it taken care of very easily. Score!

Wow, that's a great report, especially about the ticket swap!

4. My phone said it was 36° out tonight before Time Traveler closed and 35° before Powder Keg And Wildfire closed. So, either my phone’s temperature was five degrees off what SDC thought the temperature was or they don’t actually close the rides at the posted temperature guidelines.


Your phone doesn't measure the temperature. It tells you what your weather app thinks the temperature probably is, based on your location.

I have never been in the toy museum, or that car museum.  Are they worth going to?

Which car musuem?  I have been told the new one (new from tornado) is around 25 to get in,.

Petit Jean is $10, but it's out of the way unless you're coming up from Arkansas.

The Boulder gag ran through the 1970's and maybe into the 1980's. Not sure when it was removed. It was accompanied with a strobe light effect which may be why it was removed due to some medical issues. There was also a explosion and a voice that said something like "Look out below, its a rockslide" .

Exactly. I thought it was the best scene on the ride. It was classic like the original route of FITH, where you were about to go across the burned-out bridge before swerving and plunging.

Looks like the area is in for a major snowstorm this weekend. If you plan on being in Branson, make sure you keep an eye on the weather. I know many people have already cancelled their plans. If it comes like they say it will,  the 8-12 inches of snow will cripple i44 and the Branson area from Friday evening and all day Saturday.

I do not miss living where snow cripples everything.

Raised in Arkansas, three years in Germany, 24 years in Texas, now I'm in New Hampshire. I'm happy that the low tonight is 8F, because it's much safer than hovering around the freezing mark.

I have to make a 200 mile round trip Wednesday morning to get sworn in as a state representative. I don't mind the weather, just the time spent doing it.
