General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: 2020 Daily Attendance...

That is very surprising considering how dead the park was over much of the summer. It really seems like everyone visits the park at specific times. It's pretty much Christmas, Moonlight madness, special events such as YCW, and now Pumpkins nights. If there's nothing going on, you can have the place to yourself.

Star Spangled Summer is one of the least enthusiastic festivals they have.  That one really needs work.  Not that it's a bad thing for visitors to have a less crowded park but it would be nice for them to put some more effort in to get their summer numbers up some.

I don't believe we will see any of the Herschend family in the unemployment line anytime soon  :)

With the New Mystic Rivers,
The Boardwalk all new and Revamped,
New RibHouse,
The expanded Pumpkin nights next year,  (well this year),
More Arts and Crafts (as there should be)
Cowboy attractions coming back,

No reason for it not to be a record year!  It will be a good year.!

It really seems like they made up a lot of ground between Pumpkin Nights and the end of the year.  The other festivals are still solid, but like you say they have their slow times.   Next year Mystic River should fill those slower summer days in pretty well and  I would predict a really big year in attendance.

Heard last night that SDC had a record setting attendance for 2019 of 2.2 million visitors.  I would say that 2020 is a pretty safe bet to set another record the way things are looking.

I loved the gandy dancers as a kid. It was a great way to wear out kids!

I also spent HOURS in the ropes and ball pits where the Crossroads Pizza dining area is located now. It's a miracle that I never got hurt there. I absolutely loved it.

Other Parks / Re: Frontier City Developments

It's also worth mentioning that the old abandoned hotel to the north is being leveled and completely removed. Local permits show that it is indeed Six Flags and Frontier City who are doing the work. On top of the boneyard cleanup, it seems that they are extremely interested in freeing up as much land as possible. What they're gonna do with all the land the own is beyond me. But i wouldn't be shocked to see some parking expansions in the park's future. The main lot was filled for most of my visits to FC this year, so its a reasonable expansion for them.

One of my best memories from SDC was the dueling buckets water game. You would stand across from your opponent and throw bean bags at a target, if you hit it, it would dump a bucket of water on their head. My nephew and I would play it so much that we looked like we jumped in lake Silver.
