Mutton Hollow never seemed to be able to get off the ground.  There was a really good restaurant, but the gift/craft stores were really second rate and didn't feel authentic.  I always yearned for more for Mutton Hollow.  The Harold Bell Wright museum was located there for a long time (now at the toy museum).

They were constantly trying new "gimmicks".  I remember a giant barrel that you could walk through.  I think it might have been a part of a fun house at one time.  It rotated while you walked through.  I was always disappointed that it didn't work when I was there.

Mutton Hollow was completely and majorly reformed and became Branson USA, and finally Celebration City (which I think should have been called The Branson Boardwalk, but that's irrelevent).

^I have some fond memories of Mutton Hollow (unfortunately no pics or videos).  I agree, it always seemed like it fell a little short.  We visited five or six times then didn't go back.  I wasn't surprised when I noticed it was closing.
