What can I say?  I love words, and you're one garish individual.  I'm going to try to make it my new buzzword at school, this year.  I can drive the other teachers crazy with it...which is what I do well.

Maybe we can be rid of these strange little eggs in and on the banks of the lake.
I've not yet discovered the creature that lays these garish treasures.


From the species with  the Latin name Badaimitrons. They do not reproduce unless they are fertilized with a touch from a wax hand.

Wow.  This is new information to me...and it makes me wary of getting one of those wax hands!

I wonder if the Badaimitrons are endangered and nearing extinction due to the municipal encroachment that threatens the elimination of their garish habitat.

Sad to me the Dugan Clan probably won't be a part of the new area by the lake. I am excited to see what develops.

While Shoosh beat me to the punch (with his much better photos) I still want to make a contribution (trying to prove my worth) with my cell phone pics taken from GG.

These are from July 4th as well.

The largest footer might be for the Balloons? I seem to remember that taking up a good deal of real estate.

I'm curious about the buildings going in near the train tracks, I wonder if that will be for more games like in GE or actually something of worth like a craftsman demonstration or gift shop?

I would love to see a sit-down restaurant built near Lake Silver since GG is coming down.

Eh, just my ideas.

I just can't seem to find the information on the 2015 project. Is it on the HFE website? Reading this forum I pretty much know what it is but was curious to read more on it. Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Thanks!

Nothing has been released yet, jbb.  All we know is what we read right here.

Go to the US PATENT & TRADEMARK site.
Run a basic search with Silver Dollar City as the owner of the trademark and then you'll have the name and latest info on that process.

If you're wanting details on the land, you're SOL until August at the earliest.

This sounds like it is a lazy, unimaginative addition to the park.  Use recycled rides, fail to keep it in 1880's theme, etc.  I don't think we're going to be very impressed.  I hope I'm wrong but I won't hold my breath.

It's sad this is where SDC is going.

Agre, And also agree with Shave about all the pandering to special groups. I wish they had taken all this money and refurbished a few of the older attractions and saved the space for something major in the future.
Me too!
