The state inspected the ride on the 9th and approved its reopening according to KY3.

We went on Wednesday the 8th for a few hours. Didn't ride anything. Saw the first Globetrotters show of the day, lots of talking at the beginning, show was very audience involved with kids and adults coming up to participate in various segments. Would have liked to see more skills and shots from the Globetrotters but did enjoy this version more than the one we saw the first year the group was at SDC.

Didn't get to see the new Down by the Riverside show since Wednesday is the off day.

Lines were long at the few places open to serve food and drink. Rib House needs some shade for those waiting in line since the wait is really long.  I heard someone say they waited for an hour at Chester's Chips. We did get a frozen lemonade at the stand near the saloon, took about 20 minutes.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / 10Best 2021 SDC 2nd

SDC came in 2nd for 2021 in the Best Amusement Park category for 10Best. Sea World Orlando won this year. For most of the contest SDC was in first place on the leaderboard.

FYI -- most of the concession stands now have a sign that says credit or debit card at this location. Noticed this during our visit on 5/20. Your cash is no longer wanted.

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.

^ The SDC website shows a new Sagebrush Sadie saloon show beginning April 15h at the Boatworks theatre!  If anyone sees the show give us a report.  Yeehaw!

We saw it the first day of Street Fest. 4 saloon girl dancers, Sadie, Charlie, and the "theater owner", piano player and drummer. Not much of a plot -- Sadie rents theater for a show, show bothers theater owner who makes noise at times to interrupt the show.

Went to the first day of Street Fest, Every other bench is used in the Boatworks Theater (new home of the Saloon Show) and in the Dockside Theater. Lots of acts and show times throughout the park. Many of the acts have been at previous WorldFests, Festivals of Wonder, etc. The saloon show has 2 band members, 4 dancers, and 3 singers/actors. There is no notice posted at the Saloon that the show has been relocated to the Boatworks. Riverside Playhouse is open as a cool, maskfree place to sit and rest.

Wait times on Thursday were short for the rides we rode (drop tower, Fire in the Hole, train, Flooded Mine). When we rode the train in the afternoon we didn't see Wildfire, Outlaw Run, or Powderkeg running. Train ride is down to 1 robber.

We got Chesters Chips about 12:30. Apparently they had been cooked way ahead of time because they were cold. We didn't try any other food. We did see quite a few folks wearing Tasting Passport lanyards.

We went to the first day of Street Fest. People wore masks to ride the trams, enter the park and most continued to wear them inside the park other than when eating. And I think it was stated masks were required on all the rides we rode.

When did the metal detectors get added to the entrance just before the ticket takers? Was nice to not have to wade through the strollers and motorized carts after going through the entrance.

Other Parks / Re: Dogpatch USA sells for $1.12 million

I am back to driving by Dogpatch 2 - 4 times a month. It looks so different now from the day Johnny Morris bought it. Most of the buildings are gone. Some type of cliffside excavation is going on now.

Will be 2021 before we go back to SDC. We filled out the season pass rollover form earlier this month.

What I read on the website made it seem as though there would not be any indoor shows this fall or for Christmas.

The Branson aldermen had a meeting yesterday to debate a mask requirement. It was on YouTube and went over 7 hours -- vote postponed for 2 weeks. During the meeting someone said that SDC average attendance was 3000 per day.

If that is the case, how can SDC make enough money to stay open?

Total paid at OVI was 52.69. We paid more at HOF even though DH called directly and asked for the discount when he made the reservation.

We stayed there on Thursday night 7/9 at the discount rate. We did have to stay upstairs though. I actually liked the upstairs room we had better than the ones we have stayed in downstairs. Breakfast was available, pool was open.

 We tried Hall of Fame 2 weeks ago but like OVI better.

Here is what Yakov had to say about moving his show to the strip in this free article from Branson Tri-Lakes News:
