According to the article from Branson Tri-Lakes News (link below), SDC set an attendance record on Saturday August 2 when the park topped 24,000 visitors that day. That week had 100,000 visitors.

wow!  Great news for the park.  Glad I wasn't there that day  ;)...other than to be a part of history.
Small wonder our lives have so little of God in them, when we come in touch with so little that God has made.

It's obviously a success, but there are still ways it should be tweaked/enhanced to keep it more appropriate to the 1880s theme.

Yep, It was. A minor mistake. Gotta get more moonlight sleep.

Since I have never been I am not sure what they do. Probably never will go due to the high crowds, but would love to since I am a thrill ride junkie. I would bet it is a huge hit with the teen through 20's crowds though.

If they kept the park open later at night during the whole summer, the crowds would be lighter. I really want to see them have similar hours to Worlds of Fun, at least during the summer months, when all the kids are out of school.
