Guess we are blind -- walked up and down the corkscrew Thursday afternoon, Friday morning, and early Friday afternoon -- went to Sullivan's Mill and to Hannah's and never saw the fence or destruction going on....

Well in your defense the work is much farther west then where you were in Midtown.  In fact one could probably have walked down Hill Street and missed it.  Hence why Big Jacks went out of business in the first place.  It was hid

Your not going to get Midwesterners to park miles form a park (parking in Branson) to get on a bus that takes them over the same roads that they could have took themselves to get to the same place they could have parked.  Unless it is the only free parking option....add a parking fee to all SDC lots....suddenly that plan could work.

My dad did the artwork in that shop back in the 60's. Sad to see it go. Hope they saved some of it.

I wouldn’t hold my breath

Yeah hopefully they keep the sign and put it somewhere. Its a work of art.
Miss the old signs. Generic computer ones on all the new stuff is so cheap and putrid.

Hopefully the next trend will be to revitalize old rides. The current trend is big coasters. I think SDC needs a breather on big new coasters for a while. Hopefully over the next five years we see FITH fixed up and AP completely redone with an emphasis on theme. The PTB are making a huge mistake if they let classic theme go by the wayside and SDC is just another park.
however I must say that flooded mine looked great the last two seasons I went. Havent gone yet this year but seems like they did a lot to it last year. I was pleased and they deserve credit for it. Now if they would please advertise it a little.

I would not be surprised if one day they decide having the gun on the train robbery will be deemed too controversial and get rid of that, perhaps get rid of a robbery completely.

I'm one of those old-timers who would cheer to see the guns gone from FM. Not because "gunz!", but because they're distracting. It used to be a ride of wonderment and discovery and imagination; now it's just constant pew-pew-pew, and no one sees the story unfold.

Me too. The guns ruined the ride a long time ago.
