Some more damning details coming out of the woodwork now, especially the fact that they have NOT gotten any sort of agreement with SDC, and they haven't even done a feasibility study, which I assumed was step 1.

Looks like they are "postponing" the agreement, which likely signals it's death unless they completely rework things.

So, last noght on FB, I saw the front page of this weeks "The Independent", small local Branson publication.. I am sure most of us has seen it, usually at motels......

anyway last night, front page, indicates project was approved and they are supposed to be going by 2020?

anybody in branson see that article? or can verify that...?

So they approved it with changes: no required use of eminent domain, no connection to SDC, and will work with a few other entities/initiatives.

This allows them to move forward on spending some money towards actually coming up with a plan/design. In November of 2017 they will present an actual contract to build the thing, at which point we will know if this thing will become reality or not.

Dropping the SDC connection is significant. It could still happen, but it sounds like SDC wants to make sure this thing is viable before they bulldoze their way up to SDC's property. Perhaps they will add on the segment to SDC after the main portion proves its viability. I don't know if not connecting to SDC initially will make the project more or less viable for them... on one hand it makes the system smaller and easier to manage, but on the other hand SDC is the main destination in Branson...

I have sometimes wondered if a table rock lake ferry connection could be made to the lake at SDC...

So the November 2017 deadline came and went and there hasn't been a peep about this project. I'm guessing that means it is officially dead. Probably couldn't get investors on board. I had a glimmer of hope that something would happen though... they had a gondola car to show off and everything.

Yep, this us very similar to what Disney is doing IMO, but I never thought this would get built.

Yeah, I dont see a system like this going in the Branson area.  It would have to span out to SDC,  and that would take a Lot of 0's to build...

Now maybe after a recently new proposed waterpark was build......

AND  IF maybe another group did a large project out on "south 465"

It wouldn't hurt if something was done at CC also..

That's a lot of waiting and "if's"
