Will do! I wanted the closest place and it seemed to have great reviews and I liked the pictures. Hopefully all will go well!

I was just curious if you can buy photos of your ride on the coaster in a format where you can put them on facebook? I think I'll need to document this trip!!!!!

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Well, I know back in 2013, they had a deal where you could buy a USB drive that would have your photos uploaded onto it. I got the special Outlaw Run "gold bar" USB.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

You can buy individual photos at the gift shop when exiting the ride, or you can buy a photopass at Guest Relations at the front of the park, just before you get to the security checkpoint.

Bigfoot on the Strip has lost their lawsuit.

https://www.therolladailynews.com/news/20190904/judge-review-of-branson-attraction-was-not-defamatory

The Rolla Daily News wrote: federal judge has ruled that a Kansas cattle farmer did not defame a Branson attraction by leaving a three-star TripAdvisor review.

Owners of Bigfoot on the Strip sued Randy Winchester and his daughter in June 2018, claiming the review was libelous and defamatory.

Winchester had written that he was disappointed by a tour of Bigfoot Farms and its cattle. Owners of the attraction contended some of the details in Winchester’s review were inaccurate.

Winchester said after tour owner’s contacted him to complain, he changed it to a one-star review.

The Springfield News-Leader reports U.S. District Court Chief Judge Beth Phillips ruled late last month that Winchester’s statements were factually correct and/or didn’t diminish the company’s reputation in the community.

An attorney representing Bigfoot’s owners did not return a call seeking comment.

I thought I would mention that SDC's Reuben's Swashbuckling Adventure Won at the Golden Ticket Awards for Best New Show.

Its probably not going anywhere anytime soon if you missed it.

The Golden Tickets are what they are, but hardly anyone knows that. SDC got a lot of traction out of Outlaw Run winning a Golden Ticket. They'll advertise this similarly. Should be good for them.

Golden Tickets aside, that show is great. Highly recommend anyone coming next summer to take time for it.

I had a great Saturday 09-14-2019 at SDC!!!! Man the coasters were intense! I got the one day photo pass and had my picture made and downloaded them the next day after I got home. It worked great except that Wildfire's picture area wasn't working. I was so rattled after riding the five coasters ( I haven't ridden coasters in several years and am in my fifties lol) that I just didn't think I wanted to ride again later so soon to try for a picture. I chilled out walking around with a friend and riding Flooded Mine. It was great looking at the shops, the 1800's Wilderness Church, and snacking on cinnamon and apple cinnamon bread :)
White Wing Lodge is making improvements and was great. The new owners were very nice and the breakfast was great. I had never seen an automatic pancake making machine before lol. I wanted the closest place as driving in the mountains stresses me out. I couldn't believe when I exited SDC that the exit was right at White Wing. They are smart giving discounts to SDC passholders. I would definitely get a pass if I lived closer!

At any rate I just loved loved loved SDC. The stores, rides, and restrooms are all great. I always just feel a little cramped as the paths are all narrow but I think that is part of the charm. I couldn't believe that on a Saturday my ride wait time for all the coasters and Flooded Mine weren't bad at all! Loved it and so glad they are there!!!!! SDC and Dollywood are hard to beat if you ask me!!!! Love the Herschend's style!!!
