That seems to be a common thread here lately for the park

I would like to hear about these BOH projects and management shakeups.  Sounds interesting.

NEW FOR '21!  A...sign.

2020 was a challenge, but certainly for a park trying to enter into the ride race.  This seems to be the direction SDC is taking.  A overdue sign is pretty darn lackluster.  There must be more to brag about.

I think this year I'm most excited to see them continue fleshing out the new festival area. I am betting by this fall the crowds will be packing the park out again to 26+ thousand capacity.

Something as simple as digital season passes and google/apple pay would make me happy.

I would love to not have to take my wallet on days where I am riding water rides....

I would like that also, But, If I am going to carry a $1000.00 phone into a water ride my wallet is inconsequential.

My phone is water resistant and I won't be leaving it in cubby. (or my wallet for that matter)

My answer now is a ziplock bag for the wallet but would just prefer not to have it in the park.

Even if you don't ride rides that paper does not hold up to rain either...

Glad they finally announced it.  A year later than they originally planned but itís finally happening.

It was announced for the 2020 season, but then was quietly removed from the site.

The new plans are a little different from the original... and even then Iím having trouble remembering what they actually announced and what I was told they were going to do.  I swear I remember something in the middle of Lake Silver was being planned at one time

I would just love having the option of Apple Pay. Not enough places use it, but somewhere like SDC or other theme parks should be all over this because it could speed up lines when purchasing food.

I don't know how widely mobile payment has been adopted in theme/amusement parks, but Apple Pay is widely available with a few stubborn holdouts like Walmart (because they want to create their own payment system).

Mobile payment is definitely faster.

Also raise the prices, the money handlers are making a fortune these days.
