I am a little surprised that SDC is closed every Monday and Tuesday until Dec 21.  This seems like a golden opportunity to make up for some of the  revenue from missed days this year.  Of course they know a lot more than I do about the attendance and employee situation for adding extra days.

Wednesday and Thursday are pretty slow all fall-Christmas, adding 2 more days would mean staffing issues. Right now all staff can work all 5 days they are open for 8 hours and not hit overtime, if they are open 7 days a week then you have to stagger days off for everyone. They seem to already be having an issue with staffing, that would just make it worse.

I hope Iím wrong, but Iím starting to think we are going to be in a pandemic mitigation situation for another year maybe longer. With that in mind, I could see them making some front entrance remodels this office season. Something with a focus of helping guest flow while pandemic precautions are in effect but also streamlining flow for a post pandemic world where they hopefully return to crowd levels they had before the pandemic.

But like the rest of yíall I donít expect anything big for 2-3 years minimum. I think their next big ride would be a coaster, those seem to have the biggest effect on attendance. Iíd still love to see some more indoor everyone can ride options but in light of covid I think they will need/want something that really brings in crowds and new visitors.

Iíd love to see a couple of high capacity indoor rides. I think they could do something really fun that would be similar to buzz light year or Men in black, thatís themed either to firemanís landing where you are putting out fires or to a more generic hunting or gunslinger theme. Iíd also love a classic storytelling dark ride.

I feel like masks are 100% a CYA move for the park. With all of the constant removing for rides, eating, and drinking along with normal fidgeting with them because itís hot and abnormal to wear a mask all day, there effectiveness is going to be reduced to almost nothing. I hope some more experiments will soon show the ineffectiveness and we can do away with wearing them, especially outside.

Has anyone heard what they are doing with the refil mugs and or the unlimited drink tumblers. As far as I know restaurants have all ceased letting you get drinks in your own cup and Iím curious how SDC is dealing with that.

2. These are not full blown Starbucks.  They will serve maybe 4 options and will be in addition to what is being sold not the marquee attraction.

So not actually Starbucks just serving Starbucks coffee? If that's the case, this will likely be the same or less out of place as all the coke logos in the park.

If itís just me, Iíd watch some glass blowing, ride the FM, and grab some food and sit by the waterfall while I eat.

If my son is with me, weíd ride the FM for the whole hour and it wouldnít be enough times to satisfy him.

Hi, Iíve been reading since early this spring, I found the forum searching on google for SDC rumors about the construction for Mystic River Falls. This year is our first year as season pass holders, weíve gone the last couple of years at Christmas but decided that we should do seasons passes this year. Our 2.5 year old loves silver dollar city.
