So this is a little late, but have you guys heard that the Rock aFire Bar in Kansas City is relocating to Branson for the Spring/Summer? It's an arcade bar featuring the original Rock aFire Explosion from Showbiz Pizza Place.

Here's what the show looks like there. I thought some of you guys would like to know and visit this place if you plan on going to SDC this summer

I follow them on Facebook and I have a feeling it will be permanent.
They didn’t allow kids until the last week it was open in KC. It was strictly an adult arcade, Draftcade, up and down, all adult arcade bars. They were asked if they were coming back to KC and they wouldn’t comment. I think it’s a done deal.
I think It will do well in Branson, nostalgia.

^^I think it depends on how much better they do here than KC, but I agree. Also they do allow kids in the bar every first tuesday of the month for Family Night. I personally attended those a couple of times and let me say, it was awesome!

Happy Spring Break! It's a cold, windy, rainy day in the Ozarks, but it it's still a great day for Silver Dollar City.

With rain in the forecast, there weren't so much "crowds" as there were "a few dozen crazy people." We walked onto everything.

But first we walked into Hannah's Ice Cream Parlour.

Now what kinda person just waltzes into an ice cream shop at quarter to 10 in the morning like they think they're a VIP?

Someone who's bought a VIP refill cup!


We were the first ones to redeem ours for the season! Naturally that meant the system wasn't quite working either. Not too much trouble, and we get free refills all year now! I noticed the refills went up to $2 this year, so that's helpful.

Time Traveler and Thunderation were as good as ever, and then we took the long way round to Outlaw Run for a photo op. All these are taken from a public pathway through knotholes in the construction wall.

What could be over here?

The gold panning has been moved from near Tom and Huck's River Blast to between Riverfront Playhouse and White River Mercantile.

This new bigger path is where the gold panning used to be.

New location for Magic Box near Powder Keg. Love that mosswork.


After the rest of the coasters, some time in Half Dollar Holler, and the Flooded Mine, it was time for lunch.

IMG_20190313_115432.jpg
Ahhh...skillet.


The skillets come on plates this year. Much easier than the old bowls were, less spills over.

And where did we go for dessert?

The cinnamon bread told us "Apres moi, la deluge" so we headed out. Great start to the season and I'm glad it wasn't a washout.

Do you know if you get a 50% off with a Dollywood pass ticket you can do the after 3, next day free deal?

I'll be there the week after next for long-awaited coaster riding during my spring break!

Thanks for the update, Andrew. I'll be curious to see what fills in the old rapids ride area!

^^^ Thanks!

^^ I don't know for sure. I've never seen them exclude anything from the after 3 (or after 5) promotions, but you'd probably be best off calling them.

^ Yeah, it's an enormous area. Obviously there's a new rapids ride, but beyond that it's anyone's guess. I plan to be peeking through the glory holes all year!

Moving the Magic Box is a pretty great idea, that area was often rather congested. Did you see if they left its' original building (well, shed really) in place?
