What about transforming Mutton Hollow (i'm sorry, celebration City, or whatever its called) into...... Mutton Hollow  :o
No admission charge, arts, crafts, horseback riding, etc. I know all the trees were knocked down before SDC bought it, but still I miss the way it was back in the 80's and that abandoned amusement park is kind of an eyesore.

A don't think Modot is going to touch that for the forseeable future. Heck, they need to get rid of the lights south of Branson on US 65 and replaced with overpasses. As slow as Arkansas is on building roads, they are catching up on US412.  I'm almost willing to wager that a northern bypass of US 412 will get done before that. Some "folks" in Bentonville want that done to improve access to the pet airport. Arkansas is building half of the bypass around Bella Vista finally. I set here and see that the rum folks in PR and US Virgin Islands are getting hundreds of millions in aid. Yet this country can't fund the completion of I-49 ::)

Ummm... Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands aren't "foreign"; they're US Territories. In fact, Puerto Rico voted this election to pass a petition for statehood. If all goes well, it should be our 51st state soon.

Attraction-wise, I'll forever and always restate my opinion that SDC needs a "People Mover" ride.

Puerto Rico will not be a state anytime soon.

Don't hold your breath.  Sounds like it is being fast-tracked

lol, so getting this topic back on track:

Looks like the prospect of the long-awaited adventure course is out of the question now that the chain is suddenly removing them from their properties. Up until that happened I was positive something like that was coming to the space vacated by the Waterboggin, and maybe that was the plan, but it looks like they can't take the associated risks anymore.

So what else could go there? The other popular theories included a G-fighter or some variant, but it seems like the chain has not rushed back to Gerstlauer to add another like they probably would have if they really loved MM. I think the mixed reviews of MM might have scared them off of the concept, even though MM is the most visually impressive ride they've built yet (IMO).

The other popular idea that was discussed a few seasons ago was putting the Mack SuperSplash from CC back there. That could be a very likely possibility for 2015, I would think.

If themed well, I could totally see them move the SuperSplash over to SDC.

Nope, Puerto Rico voted for statehood sort of, read up on it. The results were very murky. They simply voted to not go independent. On the second part of the issue, many did not vote at all because it didn't include the Commonwealth option. It will take total control of Congress by the Dems to get it done as PR looks like it would add two Ds in the senate and 5 Ds in the HofRs.

I'll put 5 dollars down that Rs make gains in 2014


Oh, did I miss Stone Moutain removing theirs? Like I said, Bass Pro should buy the DW one and slap it in the Pyramid considering they want to do zip lines and a couple of stores have rock climbing walls.

Nope, just the 50th. "West" Virginia is not legally a state.  ;)

and the State of Missouri does not recognize the territory to our immediate west as a "state" as well.
