Lucky Silver Mine Restaurant at SDC
« on: May 16, 2017, 02:31:51 AM »
I read an article that stated that the Mine Restaurant at SDC has a few "unique" tables. The article states that there are certain tables that actually move up very slowly and one that moves down slowly. Anybody know if this is true and if they still have these tables today?

I know of the one that rises slowly while you eat, but haven't heard of the one that lowers. I believe there is one that rises or maybe slowly turns in Molly's Mill.

McFarlands, in the IMAX, also has 2 rising tables.
You have a great past just ahead of you.

I can confirm that there is at least 1. It is in the middle of the walkway, next to a pole. It slowly rises when a family sits down. As they go for seconds at the buffet and come back, it is like a show. They will eventually tell the waitor/waitress about it, not trying to complain. We all laugh as she/he tells them whats going on and lowers it with a tool. I was about 10 when I saw it for myself, but it has been a while. I never sat at the table. I recently heard about more tables, which must have been put in after the last time I was there. I heard one lowers somehow or spins. ??? Never been back since because like all other food there, it is way over priced like fair food. Just go to Wendy's or Taco Bell before going, unless you have lots of food in a backpack prepared to take in. If you have the money and want to see it, be my guest. I wont be seeing it again until the prices are reasonable again and I doubt that will ever happen.

At least one of them has been around for quite some time...i know because i sat there with a sibling and some cousins the last time my cousins came which was 15 or 16 years ago...my how time flies....
Anyway, we always made a point to eat there and had never seen it before then but hope we see someone sitting there now so we can watch.
The funny part was none of us kids really noticed. The waitress told the adults and they were laughing because we were just shoveling it in not noticing, and then the waitress came out and yelled "WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY TABLE?"
It was great. Mom still talks about it.
Small wonder our lives have so little of God in them, when we come in touch with so little that God has made.
