SDC Ride Timeline review
« on: March 23, 2019, 10:10:04 AM »
Branson Tri-Lakes just published an article (free reading)  about the removal of the Lost River. The article also has a timeline of the rides at SDC plus mentions some that have come and gone such as BuzzSaw Falls.

Great article.  But I have to admit that I am very impressed with this bit mentioned in the article:

Quote
Silver Dollar City unveiled the Grand Exposition expansion in 2006 at a cost of $8. In what was the park’s biggest expansion for kids, the Grand Exposition features 10 family rides of all shapes and sizes.

They only spent $8 on all of Grand Expo!!  That's incredible!  I'd spend that to put it in my backyard as well.  :-P

Gotta love when editors miss obvious mistakes like that.  hehe
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.

Who in the world would compare the Diving Bell with Disney's 20,000 Leagues???  Only someone who doesn't know anything about the Diving Bell!   :o :P

Yes, so imagine what all different variety of things they could have added with the price tag of TT, not that TT is not nice but....

Did Celebration City contribute to the Grand Exposition?  Rides I mean?
