A new area called the "Beverly Hillbilly Experience". There could be a ride that is like the famous truck, American Plunge could be rethemed as Texas Tea, ...

The trouble is no one under 60 would know who or what it was referencing.

I am under 60.
I know many under 60 that would fine the cultural and actual connection entertaining, no matter if they watched the show.
I do see what you mean though.

How about adding a Moonshiners class at the Culinary school?

I wish they could bring in the Shepherd of the Hills story.  Fictional, yes, but such an important part of the local culture.

Funny idea but the truck would be way out of theme for the 1880s.

If they have MeTV at home they will.  For those who don't know, the truck is on display at College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout.

I love the Beverly Hillbillies as do my kids, the youngest of which is in 1st grade. We watch them on TV Land and bought the SDC episodes when they were for sale at SDC a few years ago. If there are those who don't know what it was referencing it would give them something to research and learn about. With the way the area could be themed it could tell the story of who the Beverly Hillbillies are...wouldn't be much different than the way many learned about the Baldknobblers...

They still sell the Tv Show with SDC on it..  I think there were 6 episodes..?  maybe the 1st 6? 

anyway as you walk into the building, walk past the Marvel Cave desk and the display is on your right on the wall.. They usually have a TV on showing them

I love all these ideas. I wasnt thinking a flying coaster. I was thinking of just a regular sitting suspended coaster, but im ok for a flying coaster.

I do have MeTv 23-2, but i never watch it because nothing good like Beverley Hillbillies, Adams Family, or Munsters are ever on it. Beverley Hillbillies are always on 8-3 and on at the wrong time when other shows are on too.

I would like to see more animals in SDC, like bears, eagles, or an aquarium of fish. Make an area like a small zoo/aquarium with rides. The old petting zoo doesnt have many animals anymore and it doesnt look so good...

That would be SO amazing. They could find some way to include that story about the Osage scout who fought with a bear at the mouth of the Cathedral Room of Marvel Cave and they both fell in.

YES! ^^^ That sounds great! I do wish they would have an area that is older, like Renaissance era, or newer like 1950s though....
