General Silver Dollar City Talk / Rhonda Vincent 5/8 and 5/9 SDC
« on: May 08, 2021, 08:43:42 AM »
Noticed a full page ad in Branson Tri-Lakes this Wednesday about Rhonda Vincent at SDC -- May 8 and 9, 3 pm and 6 pm in Echo Hollow.

Was wondering why such short notice. And why no real promotion from SDC? There was nothing about it when I checked the website last week.

Branson Talk / NTSB Findings of the 2018 Duck Boat sinking
« on: May 01, 2020, 09:46:18 AM »
The NTSB released its findings this week about the Duck Boat sinking on Table Rock Lake in July 2018.
Here's a link to the findings: https://www.ky3.com/content/news/NTSB-releases-findings-for-whos-to-blame-in-duck-boat-tragedy-570023101.html
The safety board chairman said he thought the business could reopen if changes were made. In May 1999 the Hot Springs Ducks also had a Duck sink and that business did reopen and is still operating.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / 60th Jubilee Homecoming
« on: February 01, 2020, 11:03:03 AM »
I read in the winter edition of the Times about the 60th Jubilee Homecoming, April 30 -- May 3. During that time there will be performances by Branson performers. On May 2nd there is a High Noon Event in Echo Hollow (no details given), a Diamond Rio concert with fireworks that night,and a praise concert with the Martins on Sunday night, the 3rd.
Does anyone know more details about the High Noon Event or what Branson performers are participating or what is going on Friday night?   We attended all the activities for the 50th celebration but are trying to decide if the 60th is a must visit weekend since we have already seen Diamond Rio and the Martins at SDC several times.

Looks like Schlitterbahn Water Park in Kansas City will not reopen this year, and it sounds as though it may be sold.

Did the slide ever get torn down after that terrible accident?

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.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Coaster Quest on Travel Channel
« on: June 26, 2018, 07:39:47 PM »
Just happened to catch Coaster Quest Sunday June 24th on the Travel Channel. Episode included Holiday World and SDC. The SDC segment was filmed in 2017 and included rides on Powder Keg, Wildfire, and Outlaw Run plus food from Tater Twists and the Funnel Cake stand. It was followed by another Coaster Quest episode about Orlando.

Haven't found a repeat of the SDC episode yet on the Travel channel but Coaster Quest is supposed to be a series.
