Branson Talk / Re: Snow Slopes Coming to Branson Area..
« Last post by chittlins on November 19, 2018, 01:22:45 PM »
Its too bad the CC lot couldn't be redeveloped for that. That or use the land next to the dug out cliffs on 376.

Oh!  it could be done,, 
just have to find a developer to design it,
Get some intitial investors,
then contact branson for TIF's, and other financial goodies....  LOL. 

then they could build it.!

I have proposed a development numerous times over the years that had this and a whitewater  course as two main fixtures.

The indoor waterpark with the outdoor manmade whitewater course didn't get the TIFs and was killed.

I still think a combination of those two along with other things like mountain bike courses, rock climbing and other activities would be a hit.

They were just wooden boxes, not like a fancy coffin you would buy from a funeral home.

It was nuts Saturday night!  It wasn't too bad around the park up until around 4pm, then it was shoulder-to-shoulder.  We walked in a little after 11am and like I said, it wasn't too bad.  We waited a little under an hour to ride TT, however after the 7pm parade, the line for the Train stretched to Cowboy Jepp's!

I saw a photo somewhere, and it didn't look like real coffins, but more like a black box.  Were they real?

This is a bit of an older post but I'm finally getting back to reading/participating in the forum. I came across this post and decided I'd give an update after the fact.

My cousin competed in the coffin challenge at Six Flags St. Louis. It wasn't much of a challenge lol

They got bathroom breaks hourly, food delivered to them and could bring phones, laptops and pretty much whatever they wanted to kill time as long as they stayed in the coffin. Did I mention, the only part of the body that was covered was from the shoulders down? They did have some challenges where the scare zone characters came to taunt them and some fake out challenges where they convinced you a tarantula was crawling on you while blindfolded, told you you were eating brains, dumb stuff like that. "Surprisingly" all the contestants completed the challenge.

But it was a great way to get people talking, I'll give them that.

I have no emotional connection with AP....I'd love them to repurpose that area and create a new water ride.

Id love for that whole area to be rethemed as a real lumber camp

...with Jim Owen's Float Trip.
