Same here.  I'll be on several times a day reading the threads, but hardly ever post.

Man, that absolutely sucks about FM.  They have plenty of money to "fix it"....they just don't want to.  How sad that the PTB are losing touch.

Frontier City has an awesome LED light show on their wheel.  It's a little dangerous driving down I-35 at night because everyone is watching the wheel!  Hope Branson has the same thing in mind.

Man....we lost another great one.  Have you all noticed how much 2016 has sucked so far with regards to music?  So far we've lost Glenn Frey, David Bowie, Merle Haggard and now Prince.  Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Prince was a hell of a musician.  I heard he could play something like 27 different instruments.

He played a big part of my high school years!  I spent many a night in the woods with "Purple Rain" on the radio...if ya know what I mean!   ;)

RIP Prince

The only reason I would regret the loss of every "thrill" ride in the city is that it couldn't be made to pay these days.  Otherwise, take me back to pre-'72.  A real thrill ride for me would be a time machine, I guess.

Same here Palallin....same here.

I really didn't want to bring it up in fear that I would just be "complaining again" but while waiting in line for FM, they were playing "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang.  It's strange to me that you have to strain to hear the actual Flooded Mine song, but Kool and the Gang were loud and clear!  The same thing with FITH.  Why can't they turn up the dialogue/music outside the ride so you can hear?  They had it on last week, but you could barely hear it.

I did take a look in the old Big Jacks Sandwich Shop, and they have in fact turned it into an office.  Sad, but true.  I miss my "Big Jack".

On another note, my wife and I were discussing this on the drive home.  Do they (SDC) charge the full price of admission right now since they are only about "half open"?  If I were a first time visitor and paid to get in during this time of year, I would be pissed since most everything is closed right now.  Surely they have a cut price for now.   Anybody know?

We arrived at the City around 12:30 on the 16th.  Had to park in lot 5.  Waited forever for a tram only to have to wait some more getting in.  Bag check is not that bad once you get to the table....but it does slow down the entrance time a bit.  Immediately noticed the new split rail fences all over the place.  Basically walked around and tried to get in some rides.  First time I saw a line to the FM in a long time.  Line extended out to the racks next to the entrance.  I thought we just caught the time right after the train, but the train station was full with a line extending to about Reed Springs!  The train was just coming back into the station, so the FM was just that long.  Since there are only a few shows and shops open....lines are long to all the rides.  We strolled around and took everything in until I had enough of the crowds where it was time to leave.  After all, we were going back the next day....

The next day, we arrived at the City around 9am.  Parked in lot 2 next to the loading area.  Crowd was just as bad.  (I was surprised that we were able to walk straight into the Mill for breakfast)  Caught the Pickers on the porch and they were great as usual.  Lines to the rides were long again.  First time I stood in line for TNT all the way out in the zig-zag area!  PK had a line that began nearly at FITH.  I caught the pickers afternoon show at the shed while the kids stood in line for the rides!  ;-)  Numbers were around 10k on Wednesday, and I never did ask, but was at least 10k yesterday.
