Next year is the "year of the waterpark" as SFStL is expanding Hurricane Harbor (it's not announced yet but it is one of the worst kept secrets in the industry right now) and Adventureland is adding Phase III to Adventure Bay.  It sounds like Oceanse of Fun is FINALLY getting a new attraction next year (this is probably the least "confirmed" though) and Schlitterbahn KC is said to go ahead with part of Phase III next year.

I was in KC on a Hubby/Wife excursion this weekend. However, she couldn't keep me away from Cabela's. I was disappointed that store to tell the truth. Bass Pro has got that concept expect for the guns down. That area where schlitterbahn is at is compact and still full of attractions. Outlet Mall, Race track, Soccer Stadium, minor league ball, indoor waterpark hotel, and the Schit thing.

The waterpark is going to have a huge footprint. My wife will not even entertain the notion of Waterwater with all that and a better traffic stituation. Whitewater isn't all that impressive I loved the models of the WoW coasters at Union Station and a bit sad I didn't get to ride a few.

First, this one is about ready to come online:

And this one was announcend in the last couple of days concerning the NHRA:

I say an lodging, would all work well here. Plus, paint and grease some of the rides, retheme, and open up the gates!

With the reno at Wonders of Wildlife up in Springfield, I doubt you get your wish on the aqaurium. I can't figure out what retail beside gift shops you can put there the either not covered at Tanger or Branson Landing.

I can think of a few outlet type stores that could either come back or make a debut in Branson like Columbia, Woolrich, Mossy Oak, Off Fifth (Saks) relocate Nautica, Pendleton and Carters, ect, ect, ect. Maybe a Cabela's?

What I do know is that it makes me sick to see Oz Cat sitting idle. Being from Memphis, I loved the Zippin Pippin, Elvis' favorite woodie rollercoaster. It nearly rotted completely away when LibertyLand bit the dust but it has reappeared in Wisconsin. Still should be in Memphis somewhere. I find it interesting that I rode the woodie at what was Circus Circus down in FLA when it was Boardwalk and Baseball. It's now at Magic Springs in Hot Springs.

Junior, Barnhill hosts a few concerts a year. Jason Aldeen is up next. The layout of Barnhill for these types of things is horrible.
It was an indoor football practice field originally.

They plan on allowing the WAC folks to use the football stadium (Jimmy Buffett has played Walmart shareholders meeting there) and Bud Walton to hold events. The BWA thing will depend on when the AD dept gets a separate facilaty to practice in. People don't realize that BWA was designed to be a basketball only facility. When the lower level is retracted It has three whole courts to hold practice on. It's the practice schedules of the men and women team that disrupts other uses. But the UofA realizes the lost revenue and wants some of that.

Long term plans call for a new 5 to 6 thousand seat multiuse arena to replace Barnhill

There's an ampitheater coming online between Springdale and Siloam Springs this summer, It'll have 5,000 fixed seats, corporate boxes and 10,000 in lawn seating.

This same fellow tried to locate one just north of Bella Vista, AR before the recession. A couple of landowners would not sell out.

Regarding broadway shows

Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville AR brings in a quite a few and they'll be building a bigger auditorium in Bentonville for even the largest shows that can't play the Fayetteville location.

Also told that the UofA will start allowing use of BWA for events other than basketball.
