So while eating at the Mine today I mentioned how it was slow and she said they had figured the mine/mill would be slow because everyone would be down at the barn for the festival foods.  She said that and the rain kept people away today.  I told her I like coming when its going to rain then said something about I heard last weekend was slow for YCW.  She said it was way slower than they had planned.  She said many of the regulars have told her they stay away that weekend so maybe our theory is correct.

Yes, it was downright pleasant yesterday except for the trip being ruined over losing my phone.  I am going back today to hopefully retrieve my phone.  Looks like the rain is about done up here now but it is still cold and wet so I bet it is slow today as well.

It was absolutely wonderful today from a guest's perspective.  Crowds were light. Time Traveler was about a 10 minute wait, train was running every 30 minutes with plenty of room left on each one.  Outlaw Run, Flooded Mine, and TNT were walk ons.  Looked like much of FL was as well when we walked by.  And lots of seats left in the couple of shows we attended.
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.

I have never been in the City when it was less crowded than Saturday.  We had a very good time partly because we were never crowded.

When we got there just after noon the wet was long gone and cleared out.  Turned into a beautiful day.
But what little wet there was I'm sure contributed to those numbers being low.

Hopefully, people aren't planning on this Sunday since they are closed for Easter. We've almost made that mistake before, but luckily we checked the hours before heading out. We know a few people that have actually driven to the park and then realized that they were closed.

Good Point.!!  Glad you mentioned it.! 
I am sure there are several carloads drive out there to visit and figure out that the City is closed..

When I was a young lad my Mom took us to the city on this "plan"  It was really disappointing to pull in and see that its not just slow, its empty!  We learned to enjoy what was in Branson and had a good time going to all the places we had noticed and wondered about.   Your day is what you make of it.  Many of the stores in Branson will be open, I saw signs this past week.  Many however will be closed as they had signs up as well.

Happy Easter Members!

We were there. In general lines were quite long. But we were able to see the shows we wanted to see by giving up rides. The temp was good but the wind was quite chilly.
