Check out my Flickr site with the photos from opening day. Many taken in Half Dollar Holler. Many, many adults were there, enjoying the new play area. The carousel was packed, the playground attractions were, too. The little kids swings kept at a busy pace. The new build a bear shop was heavily visited.

I have no kids, but I want to see the new stuff! Maybe I can rent a few for the couple minutes to pass through the area! I am short, but not short enough to pass for anything under middle or high school!

I'll loan you a couple of mine for the day.....

Just kidding.

You do enough babysitting in your day job

Okie, he said he would rent them, and you said you'd loan them.  You coulda made some money!

As for babysitting, teachers don't get paid as much as babysitters.

Pictures of HDH. i was standing close to the back corner of becca's house. The sanbox area is pretty small,  so i think we will see the sand and sprinklers up on the square  :-\.

the control booth for the swings is literally within inches of the swing, I walked across the swing and it just AINT the same no more.. There is a small pond they built below the bridge now , but.................

Treehouse were "closed" for some reason sunday, But the carasoul was getting a work out!  LOL. 

Hope the pictures come out right.. here goes....

I had mentioned on page 4 of 2011 Trip Reviews that I had noticed that Hugo & Mary's Carousel does not play music along with the ride like it once did in Tom Sawyers Landing. I just asked Silver Dollar City, via their Facebook, about this. Will let y'all know if I get a reply!
I mean, come on, a Carousel without music?  ???

LOL.  funny!

I would have thought that after a complete rebuild on the carousel, the music would have been repaired/replaced/rebuilt also..  guess not?
