^^^^ Why did you sue them.....lol

After I posted I thought about looking to see if West Branson had one (since I come in that way).  I know I'm not going back to the boarder I just used....they do a great job and kept her on a farm.....she got to run free multiple times a day and fond of chasing the chickens.....but I can't afford that every SDC trip.

Not sure if this is the right place to put this idea....but here it goes....

SDC needs a short-term pet boarding facility.

As I shelled out $60 to board my dog for 2 nights over the weekend....I thought about how many SDC regulars probably are in the same situation.  I'm sure there are a lot of pet owners among the SDC crowd and it made me wonder how many specifically don't go or don't go as often because of pet care.  The trip before this one I used a neighbor boy who forget to let her out so we came home to a mess.

I'd imagine some kind of shed/kennel to be built near one of the train stops and just have every one wanting to use it go to that stop.  It would have have to be I assume same day drop off and pick up only.....no overnights.  Would probably take an extra couple of employees to run and I'm guessing most people who use it wouldn't mind a small fee for the service.

Dollywood has Doggywood. So it is possible that HFE could put one at SDC.

I am also in the "dog" club.  I prefer to take my girl with me on trips and this is why I choose the Classic Motor Inn ( Unofficial hotel of many of the SDCFans forum members.)  I would pay to have someone keep her even if it was in a kennel atmosphere.  I wonder why now one has opened up something like this in the area.  If you charged 20 a day and could keep 30 dogs you would be making some money.

I'll put this here, in an attempt to keep the 2017 thread clear for actual construction or rumors.

The new cave/bat ride could be this:
They would construct a pseudocavern above ground.  The queue could be packed with interactive/educational kiosks and decoration.  Spelling lighting and sound, along with dripping water and speleothems are a must.  This indoor portion of the queue would be kept, of course, mostly dark.

Once secured into the vehicle, the wing coaster tunnels and climbs, still in the dark, and somewhere during the first drop, it exits the cave, bursting into the sunlight (or starlight) with the bat colony, along with some nice sound effects for unsuspecting people walking by off-ride.

Name possibilities:  Batburst, Escape, Nightwing, The Echo, Microchiroptera Mahem

Nightwing is already being used by Six Flags America

I proposed something like this a while back except it was a now flume ride based on breaking out of the flooded mine.

I like the covered track, and I like the idea of retheming the area to wild west show.  Turn it into a wagon wheel and build a giant wagon facade to go around it.

I just had a thought to turn the area into a Tall Tale area, with Pecos Bill, John Henry, and Paul Bunyan.  The giant wagon could be Paul Bunyan's.  Bust out some larger-than-life characters from western folklore, and make this into a Gateway to the West.  Add some western wildlife. for people to see, including a bird show.
