I agree with you. I describe it as "hillbilly chic". The old buildings look and feel like they've grown out of the earth, while the new one's look like an HGTV version of SDC.

The new FITH gives me a glimmer of hope for the future, but another part of me fears that SDC will be unrecognizable in ten years.

When I rode FM on Sunday almost nothing worked. The guns turned off through the first half of the ride, then randomly came back on, but without sound effects. Very few of the props responded to being shot.

Maybe you are just a bad shot, pardner. Ha ha.  ;)

Some of my favorite SDC memories as a kid was when we would visit on a summer weekday, and I would ride FM over and over and over and over without having to get off of the ride.

The care and thought that the PTB took in the new FITH gives me a glimmer of hope that *maybe* the Flooded Mine could get the same kind of love in the future.

This time last week, I would have said that "updating" the song would be blasphemous. This new version just knocks it out of the park. I love it. I never, ever thought I would say that. The PTB really did a bang-up job with this entire "replacement" process. I can't wait to ride the new ride!

Wow! I'm excited, surprised, and impressed! This looks fantastic! We keep the Baldknobbers, Red Flanders, the song...everything! Well done SDC!!

Fire in the Hole without Red Flanders is simply not Fire in the Hole.

I would love to see some retro items in the gift shops featuring the 1970's logo. I think SDC is missing a merchandising opportunity there.

I like the new logo MUCH better than the 2010's logo. I never cared for that one!

I have given up all of my social media, so these forums are my only source of SDC news. I appreciate the forums.

I'm not mentally prepared to lose Danny Eakin and Fire in the Hole in the same year. Terry Sanders better stick around for a few more years!!

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Danny Eakin retiring
« on: May 01, 2023, 03:40:02 PM »
 I saw on the Homestead Pickers Facebook page that Danny Eakin has announced that he will be retiring at the end of October.  :(

Those are some big, big shoes that won't be filled. Danny represents SDC to a whole lot of folks. I'll be sad to see him go, but wish him the best on his retirement.

My cardiologist says the same thing about the risk vs. reward of pork rinds.  :)

SDC Memories/ Park History / Re: Memories of FITH

I'll share my best FITH memory...

Every time my family and I ride, we always yell the Red Flanders line together as we go past ol' Mr. and Mrs. Flanders. It's funny to watch the looks on the faces of the people around us who have never been on the ride. They don't know what to think!
