We went late Friday afternoon and had no trouble finding a spot in the lot for tram stop 2. Echo Hollow was maybe 1/2 -- 2/3 full for Atlanta Rhythm Section -- much of the crowd left early (will be surprised if ARS is ever asked back).

Was there before opening this morning and it was crowded early. Traffic really backed up.

People probably trying to hit it hard and fast before it warmed up.

90 degrees + 48% humidity + asphalt + trees + people = HOT!!!!

ARS was not a good fit IMO.  Not much interaction with the crowd and just didn't seem to be into it.  Crowd was not responsive, as well.  More people around us were on phones or just sitting.

I was trying to remember if I ever heard the lead singer or any other band member of any other group at SDC use minor foul language off and on during a show. I noticed he stopped himself at one point when he said something about children in the audience. Probably some of the people who might have attended to see ARS were at the Marshall Tucker Concert at the Mansion.

I have attended many special concerts over the years at SDC. ARS was the least enjoyable of the ones I have attended.

Honestly the only reason we went Saturday morning was to get credit for attending Star Spangled Summer festival. Although we will be back in Branson more than once this summer, I'm not sure we will go back to SDC  until after the SPS festival is over.

Nope, Hubs and I talked about it, also.  Neither one of us remember any foul language from a band, either, or a band member whining about the cost of producing cd's with a production company, how they don't make much money on it, and the best way is to produce your own cd's.  Our least favorite of the concerts over the last couple years, and I've seen most of them. The whole thing was just off..

Yes, it was not too bad today.  We rode most coasters once, and rode the train and FM.  Attempted to ride TT when we got there, but after spending about 30 minutes in line it broke down with a train stuck out on the first launch.  We left by about 1pm.  I was wore out from the day before at WW.

Sat - only 13,000

Sunday - 16,000

Monday as of 3:00 - 9500

Today was a great day to be at the city!  Our longest waits were powder keg and time traveler at 25 minutes each.

We didn't hear numbers, but we were told that the Saturday and Sunday crowds were huge.  Interesting to see the actual figures.

The City was a pleasure Monday.  The breeze helped to ameliorate the heat. 

Pleasant surprise to see the 504 dressed up in a near-authentic Frisco passenger livery!  One of the robbers' last day doing the skit--he's moving up to engine service.  Lucky robber!

Yea we were there Monday till about 1:30pm I think so not very long.  We did ride the train and heard about the robber getting moved to engineer.  Crowds were not too bad.  We did not even try the TT because the app said 45 minute wait.  Normally they under report the time.  Maybe they over reported it Monday?

Based on most of my experiences, the app wait times are usually longer than the actual wait times.

I checked on the numbers, just because it was the first sat of fall festival, weather was a little warm, but a nice day..

13,000 people showed up, would have been a perfect day.   

I will be there next weekend, hoping to see Cheesehead and hubby that weekend.
