Is There Anything LOST at SDC That You Are GLAD Is Lost?
« on: February 28, 2012, 11:12:44 AM »
Is there an activity, a ride, a feature that you are glad no longer exists?  We often mourn things lost, but some things are better done away with.

One example:  the Bumper Stickers.  'Way back when, you'd leave the City to find a bumper sticker on your car's rear bumper, applied while you were there.  In a day when hard chrome bumpers and weak adhesives prevailed, this advertising campaign wasn't overly harmful, but plastic cars and tough adhesives nowadays would make the practice much less reversable.  And I *hate* having other people touch my truck  ;D

I would like the bumper stickers, but I'd rather chose to have one instead of being stuck with one without my consent.

I'm not sure if this still exists or not, but the first year that they offered the "Buy your way to the front of the line" pass they plastered adds for it everywhere.  I think they do still offer it (maybe it's called the Trailblazers pass?) but it's not flagrantly advertised all over the park like it was when it was new.  I don't miss that...now if we could just do something so that every square inch of the park isn't brought to me by humana...

I don't remember SDC slapping on bumper stickers, but all the music shows did. Dad would stop and peel them off before we even got in the car.

I'm glad the punch tickets are gone, replaced by all-you-can-ride.

I have to go with the green trams, granted now I get more exercise since we always walk from where we park though I guess that is more of a warm up till you get in the park

I never knew about the bumper stickers, but I would be fuming if someone slapped a bumper sticker on my car without my consent. That would definitely leave a bad impression. However, I will take all the freebee Silver Dollar City merchandise that they want to hand out.  ;D

I think it'd be cool (though probably more expensive) if they did the bumper sticker thing again, but with, say, window decals or magnetic bumper "stickers."

I spent too much time "deep thinking" my response when the answer was right in front of me!  I miss the green trams, also.
