Oh nice, night rides are awesome and rare at SDC. Fair warning, Moonlight Madness is probably the busiest time of the year other than Christmas. Usually your preview day will start at 5 rather than 3, since the park is open later. Play it by ear, but on your full day be prepared to get a Trailbazer pass if necessary. Unlike other times when families will start leaving late afternoon, it stays busy after dark since night rides are so rare and the park advertises the late hours as an attraction.

Unless the forecast is a washout, I have every intention to buy a Trailblazer Unlimited.

I knew Memorial Day weekend would be busy, but I'll pay the "upcharge" of a Trailblazer to try some of those coasters at night.

Ooh, just realized you'll be there during Bluegrass & BBQ. Make sure you hit that up in Red Gold Heritage Hall. Check out my trip report from last year:

For you western peeps and international folks using using LCCs to Denver.

Frontier Air is adding service from Denver back to Branson. That's BKG not the Springfield/Branson airport up the road. It's a beautiful little airport on top of a mountain. Hopedully they add they old Southwest routes as well.

This beauty got used as money last night at my job and I came across it this morning and had to take pictures of it. They might be more common then I realize but, I personally have never seen one before. That, and I have not been to SDC since I was really little. Anyways, I thought it was pretty neat, and wanted to share it with all of you!

Cool! Looking good without all the construction walls. The video was just a teaser for now, but I'm interested to know about the new food options in that area. They're really revamping the whole area, which really needed to be done.

Wowwie! That whole area is going to be unrecognizable when the park opens for the season! I was scared that it would feel cramped, but they've really opened it up!

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Theming elements are finally starting to show up inside the Time Traveler station! Looking to be very much like Wildfire's building! https://blog.silverdollarcity.com/article/time-traveler-tuesday-update?cid=smc_000553
