General Silver Dollar City Talk / Cheapest ticket options
« on: November 17, 2023, 08:27:46 PM »
I had not planned on going to the city this year, but am thinking about a spur of the moment trip Sunday/Monday this week.  I thought about getting a season pass but remembered it would not be good until next year.  What are the cheapest options for day tickets?  I would think consider upgrading it to a season pass for next year if that is possible.  Does anyone know what the cost is to upgrade a day pass this year to a season pass for next year?  In years past I have bought passes well in advance and have never done the upgrade thing.

White Water Discussion / What is the deal with WW?
« on: May 31, 2022, 06:10:23 PM »
I caught something on Fakebook about this being the last year of WW and they bought some new property to relocate and call it dolly land or something to that effect?  Anybody heard anything about this?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Insane crowds this morning
« on: March 16, 2022, 10:39:05 AM »
Itís after 10 am and still waiting in line to pickup my season TB pass. Took forever to even get in the gate. So far this seems like Christmas crowd levels. I realize itís spring break but I have been here many times on opening day and it has not been this bad. If this is the new norm this will for sure be my last year for buying passes.

Mass confusion today. At the cave they said you can go down to the midtown guest services to pick them up. Waited in line 45 minutes only to discover they did not have the bracelets, you get the lanyard there but have to go back to cave to get bracelet

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Fire at the City

I am seeing posts on Fakebook within the last few minutes of an explosion and buildings on fire at SDC?  Anybody else heard this?

Other Parks / Frontier City/Six Flags season passes
« on: November 01, 2021, 06:40:27 PM »
Since the passes are now on sale for SDC, I did not buy passes last year and was looking at the prices and comparing to Frontier City/Six Flags.  Do the season passes at FTC not get you in their other parks anymore?  Is it only the memberships that do that?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Free Passes
« on: April 16, 2021, 08:19:00 AM »
With them being closed last year and they extended the season passes for this year, if you had the free BAF passes that were not used during the time the park was closed, are those extended to this year as well?  If so, does anyone know that the dates of the passes are?  After they expired I believe I threw them away, but if they are extended as well, I would assume guest services can reprint them if any would be currently valid.

Other Parks / What is open in Florida?
« on: July 07, 2020, 05:18:13 PM »
I might be down in the Tampa/Orlando area at the end of the month for a couple of days.  What all is open down there?  Not really enough time for Disney nor do I want to spend that kind of money.  Any cheaper parks open?  Any parks closer to Tampa?

White Water Discussion / White Water opening
« on: June 18, 2020, 09:25:59 PM »
Anybody been to WW since it opened?  If so, how was it with the mask thing?  We are going up this weekend to take the kid on some of our free passes. 

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Guest passes expired
« on: June 18, 2020, 04:48:24 PM »
Have we heard anything about the guest passes that have now expired that were for the dates they were closed?  Were they extended and can be used now, or are they just no good anymore?

Branson Talk / Lots of empty businesses/Yakov theater
« on: June 14, 2020, 08:51:36 PM »
It seems there are starting to get a lot of abandoned businesses and hotels in Branson.  It is starting to look bad up and down some sections of the strip.  I wonder how much if this was already coming and how much is virus related.

We went to a show last night, Branson acrobats or something like that.  They are performing at the Yakov theater.  Supposedly they were in town last year at a different theater doing a show on ice.  This week was their opening week and they thought about sending the troupe back to China but decided to keep them and see how it goes.  There were 6 people in attendance including the wife and I.  Kind of sad.  Anyway, that got me to thinking, why does Yakov perform down at the Caravelle or whatever it is called instead of his own theater?  This was the first time we have been in there since about 2006 or so when we saw him there.  Place still seems to be in good shape but is showing some wear around the edges from some deferred maintenance.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Whoopie pies
« on: June 13, 2020, 02:58:56 PM »
I noticed as we were leaving they are now selling whoopie pies at the cinnamon roll place as you leave. Does anybody have any real legitimate inside info as to where they came up with the idea for these?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Fire in the hole
« on: June 13, 2020, 02:57:42 PM »
When we rode fire in the hole the guy putting us in line said they had done a bunch of work to the track and it was now very smooth on the drops. He wasnít lying, it was quite a bit of difference. The ride looked and rode great. Hard to believe they would put work into it to just tear it down soon.
