Howdy Folks! It's Cowboy Chadster bringing you another Outlaw Run updated with a side of National Harvest Fest, A Salute to the American Cowboy. The festival features over 125 artists selling their arts and crafts, a new stunt show in the outdoor amphitheater at park closing, as well as their usual terrific food offerings.

So saddle up your horses and get ready for a ride!

Edit: If you like photos, I have all of them from this trip in an album here.

But I'm sure you aren't reading this to learn about the festival, are you? Probably not, no.

And quit showing you pictures that everyone has in their collection. That's what you really want eh?

Well ok then, spoil my fun why don't ya. The park must have known I was coming as they have parked a dump truck in front of my secret hole.

I mean, it's better than an out house I suppose.

The railings are complete, the painting looks like it's coming to and end, and they have started the work for what I assume is part of the queue.

So now it's time to get in the stage coach.

And get your sling shot ready because I'm about ready to launch this report

straight into this pig.

Yup. For those keeping track at home, this will be my 28th ride of 2012 on the train.
Silver Dollar City 9.23.12 107.JPG
I'm pretty sure at this point I could get a job working on the rail line.

Huh, I wonder what is around the bend?
Silver Dollar City 9.23.12 112.JPG
Looks like poles with cowboy hats.

Ah, now I get it. The poles are practicing safety and have their hard hats on.

I'd say yes, something to do with that tower. I don't see it being used as a queue this time, maybe turning it in to a building for theming of some sort...Assuming we're talking about a future coaster, there's a good plot of land there, and as much as I'd love to see something a little more original for SDC, that's not a bad spot for a Eurofighter like Mystery Mine...or an Aquatrax :) . Honestly, I can't think of any reason they would keep that tower other than to cover it up as a building for some kind of theming.

I guess I've wondered about that one for a while.

They added a new video from Branson TV to their videos page. Still not the POV I was hoping for, but still kind of cool. Branson TV is sort of like an info channel for tourists that just promotes shows and attractions in the area. I remember a long time ago seeing the promo for Buzzsaw Falls on that channel, during that trip to Branson I went to the park and Buzzsaw Falls was testing, due to open the following week! Not the best memory, but then again after riding Buzzsaw Falls I realized I didn't miss out on much.


That area could hold a eurofighter like Mystery Mine, a S&S El loco or a custom spinner like the mack, gerlauster and such. It could be an indoor/outdoor ride themed in a icehouse or old warehouse or grainery.

My ultimate wish is to see FITH redone. Keep the theme and storyline but with modern effects. When the ride gets to the burning bridge a timber falls across the track on the other side and then it drops straight down like Verbolten into complete darkness and launched as you hear FIRE IN THE HOLE into a fast paced finale.

If they ever get to redoing or replacing Thunderation that fills the mine train standard I think it would be cool to see a drop tower incorporated into it. As you get to end of the queue, you board an elevator car that holds the amount of folks that the coaster train will hold as a means to go down the mine shaft. As you have straped in and the cage closes you start to descend slowly and once you get out of view of the load platform, it malfunctions and stops You hear noises and then boom you freefall in total darkness. as you get to the bottom it slows and there you get off and board the coaster.

Why is it, when I look at the color of the wood and the track of the coaster, I think of cinnamon bread?

Thanks for the update by the way. It really does look great.
