General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Season pass benefit survey
« on: August 01, 2022, 08:59:57 AM »
Iím thinking the resort entrance would be on the west side, possibly by powder keg. I think they could put a road in through the woods and come in by powder keg. Outlaw run area would be a possibility but I canít see a good way in there without completely re-routing the train, which seems unlikely.

I wonder if they would make the new lot employee parking and put in a back road to the park and a back entrance for employees. They could then make the current employee lot an overflow guest lot. That would seem to be a much better location for guest parking, and for traffic flow.  It could also help with flow at the pickup/drop off to not have employees in the same area as guests.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Season pass benefit survey
« on: July 28, 2022, 08:57:32 AM »
I got a season pass benefit survey today.

Questions included:
How many visits this year?
What pass level do you have?(check all that apply)
Why did you get different levels of passes?(we did one gold and the rest of the family silver)
Asked about each benefit and weather you are aware of it but have t used it,  unaware of it,use occasionally, use frequently. Included in the benefits asked about were: unlimited visits, food discounts, merch discount, ticket discounts, Branson belle discount, refill mug, vip events, bring a friend, and other herschland properties discount.
Asked about the importance of each of those benefits

Asked about if benefits would convince you to upgrade to gold for $60(Yes, maybe, no) This included:  souvenir mug with discounted refills, private entrance for gold and diamond pass holders, moonlight madness being a friend ticket, exclusive preview days for festivals, BAF valid on Saturdays, one hour trailblazer early ride access everyday, vip events and access, reserved seating for echo hollow and other live entertainment, 20% off food and beverage.

Asked about if benefits would convince you to upgrade to diamond for $50. This included: free preferred parking, unlimited access to white water, extra BAF valid any day, 25% off premium on park experiences.

Asked zip code and ages of family members.

The private entrance question stands out to me, Iím very curious how they would do that. If it would just be a dedicated lane at the turnstiles or if it would be an actual separate entrance(maybe the overflow entrance by first aid and brownís candy)

Anyone have pictures of what theyíve been doing there?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Citizen injured
« on: July 21, 2022, 07:26:20 AM »
Not much information at all but a citizen was injured yesterday at SDC.

Spokesperson said no guests were involved in the accident.

Hopefully they are doing okay and will recover soon.

Grabbed a couple of pics of the project between the pumpkin trail and fire spotter ballonís.

First pic was from the train, a little path down to it. Iím assuming just from access during construction.
Second pic is from right next to the coke stand.

Thereís barely enough room for a queue let alone a gift shop and why would they take photos on a coaster that will be mainly in the dark.  Seriously?

$$$$$$ on ride photos are easy money. They wouldnít be the first place to have photos on a dark ride. Iím not saying that it will happen, just trying to point out that is not as unreasonable as you seem to think.

Let's get started on 2022 (now that we're almost halfway through the year).  Disney selected me as one of 50 teachers in the nation for their 50 Teachers Celebration.  The first link below is a list of all the things I encountered on my four-day journey, complete with walking down Main Street USA with no tourists, grand marshalling the fantasy parade in Magic Kingdom, riding Guardians of the Galaxy:  Cosmic Rewind on opening day after hours with the Imagineer who designed the attraction, and more.

Other links will be activated when I post them.  Another destination in on deck for this summer, so I should have plenty to share at that time, too.

If you're inclined to care about any of this, enjoy...

50 Teachers:  Encountering the World of Disney
50 Teachers Celebration:  ​Destination Disney
50 Teachers Celebration:  The Grand Floridian
50 Teachers Celebration:  Registration and Swag
50 Teachers Celebration:  Time to Explore EPCOT
50 Teachers Celebration:  The Magic Kingdom
50 Teachers Celebration:  Back to the Magic
50 Teachers Celebration:  Daytime Programming
50 Teachers Celebration:  Evening Programming
50 Teachers Celebration:  Visiting the Animals
50 Teachers Celebration:  It's Hot in Hollywood
50 Teachers Celebration:  Departing Disney

Riding with an imagineer sounds like an awesome experience. Really it all does. Iím looking forward to reading more about your experience.

Itís originally British. It aired on a BBC kids station.

Itís available for streaming in the US on Hulu and possibly Netflix.

Wikipedia has some details on it.

White Water Discussion / Re: What is the deal with WW?
« on: June 01, 2022, 07:47:54 AM »
Seems like rumor mill nonsense. Iím pretty sure I saw the same post, the OP of that didnít seem at all like a trustworthy sourceÖ. Why would they name it after Dolly? They really donít need her name SDC is doing great on its own.

As far as closing WW to open a water park adjacent to SDC itís possible but I canít imagine they would close WW before the new park is ready and with no construction currently occurring, the possibility of a whole park being ready by next may is virtually zero. It could be part of a long term plan but I canít see it happening for at least 2 years, but more likely it would be 3-5 years.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: New Metal Detectors
« on: May 02, 2022, 12:34:47 PM »
I just hope they are consistent with their procedure. Last year almost every time I went security wanted me to do something different at the check point so I never knew what to do to be ready and help speed the process along.

I also set off the detector several times and they didnít wand me or do anything extra other then ask or my shoes have steel toes(they do). It all left me feeling like itís just theater and not very good security.

Interesting. Was it a post visit survey or just one they emailed out to random people?

Iím assuming they would view Johnny Morris properties as one of the main competitors for a resort. I think we are all thinking that is a likely thing to be built in the next several years.

I believe if you buy additional mugs at the same time the additional ones are 12.99.

Is the vip tumbler smaller? Iím pretty sure in 2020 they held the same amount of liquid. If they are different itís probably only a couple ounces.

I was looking at SDC job openings today and noticed that they have an opening for a food service position at fried fancies.

Iím assuming from that post that they will have Flossieís rebuilt and open this year.

Anyone seen anything else or heard recent rumors on rebuilding from the fire?

Having (what I'm assuming to be) a travelling exhibit they could easily have tour the parks is an excellent way to start out doing attractions for the parks without being too bombastic or out of place. Just curious where they're gonna be locating it...

M assuming it would be in the carousel barn or the building attached to tatter twistÖ. If itís bigger than what those buildings can hold then maybe out in pumpkin plaza. I suppose red gold hall would be the other optionÖ
