I am real sure that Riverfront will go too.
I think that are was poorly used.  It wouldn't surprise me one bit.

When they built Fireman's Landing, they put in the infrastructure for a train Track crossing(see photo).
That could easily be used as part of a new pathway to connect Fireman's Landing and Grand Expo. I theorize that they would only claim the southern half of that employee parking lot for this. But if you look at how FM, Frisco Barn and the area left from the Water Boggin and you have the making of a space for a coaster. Other wildcards are RiverFront playhouse and the open air theater and if Valley Road stays.

Sounds like SDC is about to get their own new area similar to dollywood. Waterboggin footprint and Employee parking lot.

Bad News for Flooded Mine?

Highly doubt it.  I've heard some interesting rumors from the craftspeople that I never saw come to pass.  We know that they are redoing the festival event next year, as evidenced by the departure of the Wild West Show and a few other small changes they've announced.  It's very possible they're just completely reworking how they're gong to do that whole event.

But if they were doing a major remodel of an area of the park, you can bet they would have announced it and been milking it for all it's worth already.  That's not the kind of thing they are going to do under the radar and not say anything about.  Remember how early the hints were dropping about Christmas in Midtown- a full year before it happened.  They're not going to have a major project like that go by and nothing even hinted until a quiet rumor 6 months from when it would be complete.

Which is also why I laugh every time certain people start talking about the redone entrance and moving it or Echo Hollow.  Again things that the PR department isn't going to keep hidden.

Not if it's for 2020.

New shows/festivals next year, new area /revamp with a major ride 2020. Something like that would take more than a year.  Could we see the at grade train crossing go bye bye for a overpass/underpass?

Looks like we are going to stay at the Lodge of the Ozarks. Hubby and I stayed there in May.  Hubby liked the big pool, breakfast, location and the fact they are redoing the place.  New questions- since we are coming down Thanksgiving Day- where to eat Thanksgiving dinner.  Besides Grand County and the Keeters Center where do you good folks recommend? Will the crowds / wait be less if we eat dinner instead of lunch? Thanks for the help. :)

Well..... not including those 2... 
branson Center Stage will have a feast, (used to be the Rowdy Beaver)

I would think they'd be making a profit (at least with the older, smaller mugs like we have) by selling $1 refills.  Soda is not expensive and those mugs don't even hold a 12 oz. can's volume.

WOW!!   thatys lots of people going to see "WOW"...   LOL....

Did anyone else catch the line about "not for profit" ?   

If thats true....  that means the facility is property tax free?

Also there would be numerous other tax breaks for Mr Morris, IF thats true..

We got ours at the tater twist stand.

Mom was using an old one at the grilled cheese stand. They asked to see hers so they knew what to charge her. Most places donít ask to see them anymore.

I would imagine corporate looked at the extra income, but also figured they could get a more consistent and universal pricing on drinks.   I mean you got to admit the pricing on the mugs was all over the place with $1, $1.50, $1.75...etc.   I have even brought older mugs with the pricing rubbed out, and they would ask me what year it was.   Being a young worker at the park and having all these different mugs shoved into your face would be quite an undertaking.
