Silver Dollar City (SDC) Discussion Thread

P. 261: Arvest Bank announces 10 year sponsorship deal

Recommended Posts

Mystery Mine project (though SDC's was to be themed to an Ice House) was scrapped.

This time they are going with B&M.

 

This year is mild changes, but you'll see a major new access road constructed for Echo Hollow so the "bigger names" they are bringing in for concerts now can bring in their tour buses more easily.

 

2017 will see a mild retheming of Grand Expo and that large new coaster, though uncertain if it will also be in GE area.

 

Do we know all of this for sure (as in has it been confirmed), or is it just speculation... Because I feel like its the latter.

If you're looking for an official statement from the park you won't find one released to the GP if that's what you're asking.

 

All I'm saying is that a source for what you claim is happening at the park would be great. Until then... It's just speculation.

 

I could say that SDC is getting a 794.6ft tall Aqua Trax, multi-looping, Dive Machine... but that means nothing without proof.

Gerstlauer's been in a lot of hot water lately. If this project comes true and will be in fact a B&M, it screams Invert to me. It's something that the park doesn't have yet and could work well with their terrain.

 

My vote goes to a B&M Flyer. That's something the park doesn't have yet. It would work really well with the terrain, and (I think) it would be a little more family friendly than an Invert.

Not with a 54" height restriction it won't. If they're looking for a family-accessible attraction, a big bad B&M is out of the picture because all types are at least 52" except for the new family inverted coaster.

 

Fi-re-cha-ser. Fi-re-cha-ser. Fi-re-cha-ser. My goodness, I want more of those things in the world.

SDC already has one B&M, a 2nd isn't a huge stretch as the maintenance staff loves how WildFire is a lot less temperamental then say... PowderKeg (and even Outlaw Run to some extent)

I wouldn't be surprised if we get a B&M Wing coaster. I'd like that or a B&M Invert. I don't think I'd be overly excited for a B&M Flyer, even though I've never been on one. There could also be a fairly decent chance for a B&M Hyper at SDC. If SDC got that maybe it would give SF the nudge they need to put one in at SFStL lol!

That would be a good fit too!

This is my hope for their next coaster. A couple of years ago I would have said (and did) a Mystery Mine type, but Firechaser just looks so awesome. Thunderation is pretty intense for a first big coaster (though it was mine), so something between Expo Coaster and it would be very good.

I would say to find what the park lacks to better figure out what ride should be coming. Since the park literally has no weak spot, that technique wouldn't work. There's people who say there is a big gap for a family coaster between PK and the grand exposition coaster, but wouldn't thunderation fall under that? If you ask me, I can see a Wingrider, Invert, or a Hyper coming. Of course those would all be from B&M. Just what I think would come. I also do agree that it would be 2017.

So I finally made it back down to SDC. My family and I went to the park on Friday, and it couldn't have been a better day. Temps in the mid 60's, light crowds for the rides, and the park looked great. We got there at opening and headed straight to Outlaw Run. We walked right on and sat front row. I haven't been so amped up for a ride in a long time. I think this was the first time I was genuinely left in awe, everything about this coaster is just so awesome, but that first drop was amazing.... I can only IMAGINE what Lightning Rod will be like. After riding, I went right back around and walked right on again, this time sitting back row... OMG!!! that first drop was pure air even before cresting the top!!!

 

We stayed all day, but we didn't ride many rides due to my father and sister having medical issues which doesn't allow them to ride almost any rides . Anyway, my mom and I did ride a few others... Powder Keg, Electro Spin, and The Giant Barn Swing, all walk ons, and then we all rode the Steam Train of course and that was about a 15 minute wait. We did a ton of shopping, ate at WagonWorks Grill even though I wanted to go to one of the buffets, and then we stayed for the parade and then walked the entire park once it was dark to see all the lights. Overall we had an amazing time and the weather made it that much better. I'll try to upload some photos of the lights and the parade later.
