General Silver Dollar City Talk / Outlaw Run
« on: June 20, 2016, 08:59:35 PM »
Will Outlaw Run be effected by the mechanical part recall like the Lightening Rod is at Dollywood? I guess Lightening Rod has been shut down until further notice due to a recall on a mechanical part. It sounds like this could be the case on a number of RMC.

I see the new roller coaster by Rocky Mountain Coasters at Dollywood has been shut down until further notice due to a recall on a mechanical part. It sounds like this might be the case for their other coasters. Has anybody heard if Outlaw Run will be effected by the recall?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / 2015 Star Spangled Summer
« on: April 23, 2015, 12:27:20 PM »
For the Star Spangled Summer I know the Harlem Globetrotters and Championship Cloggers are featured shows. Does anybody know if there will be any other shows, beyond the regular music performances? Just curious. I know nothing else is listed on the SDC website.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Threads of Old
« on: April 04, 2015, 09:40:54 AM »
As I think back on all my discussions of experiences of SDC on this site, I couldn't help thinking of my favorite threads like the "aura" of SDC started by Andymeets1880. Didn't know if there are others of you who think back on such things but for those of you who do, what are your favorite threads discussed on this site?

General Silver Dollar City Talk / July 4th
« on: March 06, 2015, 12:25:04 PM »
We are going to be at the park on July 4th. Does anybody know if there will be a fireworks display in Echo Hollow? Where is a good place to catch a fireworks show in Branson on July 4th? Thanks

Other Parks / Disneyland
« on: May 23, 2014, 07:54:59 PM »
I was reading on MSN the other day and found an article about Disneyland increasing prices. Not only are ticket prices increasing it looks as though the price of parking is increasing. In reading comments on the comments thread, sounds like more and more people are becoming disgruntled with Disneyland and Disneyworld, many of which have threatened to stop going to the park (sure this goes on all the time with all parks). Wonder what this might do to the smaller amusement/theme parks around the country like SDC in terms of attendance? Interesting...

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Outlaw Run Pizza
« on: June 02, 2013, 06:38:54 PM »
I'm trying to budget for the new pizza joint and was wondering what I should expect to pay for each pizza. I know this depends on the type of pizza you get but on average what do they run? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Random Talk / Bluegrass
« on: July 18, 2011, 06:50:47 PM »
I just got back from the Colby, Kansas bluegrass festival. It was awesome. Dailey and Vincent were there for 2 different 1.5 hour performances. They were great as usual. A relatively new group name DRIVEN were there and they were good. I also got to see Darrin and Brooke Aldrige. They put on outstanding performances. We also got to see Ozark Alliance multiple times. We spent a lot of time talking with the family. They are very neat people and very talented. They told me that to this point they have won more amateur awards at SDC than any other group. All this bluegrass has made me homesick for the ol' SDC Bluegrass and Barbeque Festival.

SDC Memories/ Park History / Elsie The Milk Cow
« on: May 28, 2011, 06:49:36 PM »
For those of you who have visited the park this year, is Elsie the Milk Cow back yet? My kids loved playing with Elsie and have missed her the last couple of years or however she's been gone. Just curious. Also, what about the ducks that you could race with the water wheels in the same area?

Branson Talk / Geocaching
« on: March 15, 2011, 05:48:25 PM »
My family and I have just taken up geocaching...I've noticed there are quite a few geocache locations in the Branson area...Are any of you experienced geocachers? Have you found any in the Branson area that you would recommed? How important is it to have a GPS? Thanks for any light you can shed on the subject...

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Operating Dates
« on: February 20, 2011, 01:52:14 PM »
I noticed both last year and this, that SDC is closed during some of the weekdays during August. Why is this? Seems like to me that August is the month where a lot, if not most, families are able to go on vacation. Luckily my family is able to go in June/July but I would be very disappointed if I could only go in August with SDC being closed on those days...
