Construction/Rumors / Re: SDC's 2023 Project(s) and Park Developments
« on: November 03, 2022, 11:14:37 AM »
I am not paying for some sort of increased level in order to not have blackout dates.  I am about 98% sure I am not buying passes for next year and if they implement blackout dates, I will be done for good. 

Yeah I am kinda on the fence and for the first time in a decade debating if I wanna bother with getting passes for next year myself. But thats only one factor in my reasoning.

Me too...

Me too...
Instead of buying 2 passes this year as we have for many years, my husband bought 1 gold pass and I went with the BAF tickets included on his pass so we had fewer visits this year. Not sure that we will even do that for next year.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Re: Old Time Christmas Shows poll

Change in music for A Christmas Carol was made due to copyright issues. I wasn't a fan of It's a Wonderful Life and not a fan of the replacement. So I can't vote in the poll because there is not a good option for me to select.

Haven't experienced this in the fall but have on Thursdays and Fridays in April and May.

Went to the first day/night of Harvest Festival/Crafts and Pumpkins in the City. There were people in the park on Wednesday but it was not crowded. Staffing levels seemed higher than my last visit during Bluegrass and BBQ. Enjoyed Eastern Heights, the Branson band that is providing the 6 pm show throughout the festival. Was about 50 minutes of music, no intermission. Was a variety of country and pop music from 80s - current. It was a little loud.

The fog from Foggy Hollow really carried into other areas of the park. It filled the front of the Boatworks Theater during the 7:30 show of Lindley Creek.  The band was calling it their spooky set due to the fog. The bluegrass group will be playing the late afternoon and evening shows throughout the festival at the Boatworks.

There were no shows in the Opera House, Riverside Playhouse or Red/Gold.

We have decided to give up on Chester's Chips which used to be our favorite place. No matter what time of the day we have made a purchase last year or this year, the chips have been cold. Within the basket we got Wednesday at 5 pm, we had crispy chips and raw chips but all cold.

Didn't see any promotional signs for the new Fire in the Hole.

White Water Discussion / Re: What is the deal with WW?
« on: June 03, 2022, 01:17:11 PM »
I'm still curious what they are doing with the CC property since they held that auction all the sudden and are obviously clearing it out after over a decade of mostly letting it sit.

Itís going to be leveled.  Everything. 

If they do build a new water park, I wonder if it would be worth while for someone, HFE or somebody else, to keep the current WW operating?  I would think there would be enough traffic to keep 2 water parks open.

Iíve heard trumps that BPOA wants that land to expand.  I imagine the theater next door will go too since he passed

Does that mean the church is also relocating so that the entire property can be cleared?

Palallin, even if you download the app, it is not updated to announce show cancellations. When we were there one day in December all of the morning gazebo shows were cancelled but were still listed on the app. The first 2 Dickens shows were cancelled but that wasn't on the app. No signs up either.

We stay at the Barrington Hotel, just off Shepherd of the Hills Expressway, near the Mansion Theater. Reasonable rates, large breakfast selection, desserts at night (soft serve ice cream and cake or pie or cobbler or cookies).
