What is a "flying theater"?  Is that a standard name for a particular type of attraction?

Think Soarin’ at Epcot

That's what I had in mind.  I wonder what kind of stuff we're going to fly over...

Pigeon Forge and Branson both listed

Well that just rolled my stomach and turned it sour.  Yuck on so many levels.

It certainly won't be on my list of places I'll want to see.
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

LOL..   It will be on my list for sure!   Top 10 list of things NOT to do!! ;D

(unless I hear some very high praises and good reviews). ::)

While I am not going to board the smut train to the Trashville, I can halfway see a place for this attraction. If done correctly,  it could potentially be borderline tasteful. I mean, there are some exhibits that I don't care to see at Ripleys. Am I going to get bent out of shape? No. I just don't go. I hope it does well and draws in the masses?? It's not for me and my family.

Of the "museums" that Branson has/will have, the only one that is of particular interest to me is Wonderworks; I've watched many walk-throughs of various Ripleys and Wonderworks locations, and I am really excited that Branson is getting a Wonderworks! Not at all interested in Ripleys (although their aquariums are pretty cool) and definitely not National Enquirer.

Im surprised to hear you say that..  I like the Titanic, But since it basically doesnt change once every couple of years or so is plenty to visit..

I also very much like the Harry Foster Museum at the college, but there again, once every couple of years is fine..

Oh, I didn't even think about the Titanic... I should've maybe used a different word for what I was talking about. I view Ripleys, Wonderworks, and the NE "museums" as a different category than, say, Titanic or other places... Just not sure what word to use for them. Maybe "Interactive Eclectic Collections"? lol I dunno.

But, no, I actually do wanna check out the Titanic museum, and the Ralph Foster Museum, and the Toy Museum, and definitely the Harold Bell Wright museum. I just wasn't too clear on how I categorize the various places.

I have never been in the toy museum, or that car museum.  Are they worth going to?

Which car musuem?  I have been told the new one (new from tornado) is around 25 to get in,.

Not sure about the one at Dick Clarks..

I stopped at the toy museum once, I thought it was very pricey and decided not to go.. dont rememebr the price. but it scared me off..  BUT if you like that kind of stuff ALOT, I have heard it is very nice with lots of displays., So it might be worth the money to you..

One of the YouTubers I follow did the Celebrity Car Museum (which is the one at Dick Clark's theater) a couple weeks ago... It looked interesting, but not really my thing; I'm just not much of a car person. But I think people who like cars, especially if they also like movies/TV, would find it rather fun.

The Veterans museum is a must see also. My dad was blown away.

Petit Jean is $10, but it's out of the way unless you're coming up from Arkansas.

The only car museum I can think of is the one across from stampede.  Unless the toy museum was cheap, I would probably not be interested.

On another note, has anybody been to that free Johnny Cash show that us up next to the Hampton I believe?
