Any questions about Branson Attractions? Ask me

Many people are wondering about SDC's new ride, A Blast Into The Wilderness. Well do not listen to anything anyone says unless you are talking to the owner himself because nobody knows exactly what is going on. All I can tell you is that it is going to be thrilling and exciting but will not take any attention away from Wildfire. Hope to here alot of replies and questions from all of you Coaster Geeks!!!

A Blast Into The Wilderness... Uhn... It's the first time I heard about it! It sure sounds great! But it's going to be a water ride as the rumors said?

I have a question about a Branson attraction:

Why is Yakov Smirnoff still amazed by the USA 20 years later? "Running water? What a country?!"

Um...what? The new attraction is an S&S thrust air (layout shown at IAAPA). The name is 99% likely going to my Powder Keg due to the new powder keg stuff at the park. After all, do you really think that they are going to give a coaster a 5 word name?

Also, does any one else find humor in this in the context of the post "Well do not listen to anything anyone says unless you are talking to the owner himself because nobody knows exactly what is going on." :)

"Well do not listen to anything anyone says unless you are talking to the owner himself because nobody knows exactly what is going on"

Actually, several people around here do know what is going on, as it has been pointed out above and here:

I've been holding back long enough. I have the inside scoop about what's going on. Yes, it's going to be a TA2K, but it will be themed to Shoji Tabuchi. It will be a launched tour of asian violinists of the Opry past, present, and future (with a water splash at the end). Now you've heard the truth!

Well go ahead and spill it Branson-Boy or are you not Branson-Man enough? :)
Swoosh has already went and dug up alot of info and First Drop magazine has as well so if you got something new to add then please do since you imply that Jack and/or Pete has filled you in on all the details.

If I leave SFGAM going towards Branson at 40 mph and my best friend leaves at 60 mph, 3 hours later, how long will it take my friend to catch up with me, say something unkind about Vekoma, and take the world record for nude coaster riding on Wildfire from the British?

I was wondering if the Blackberry BBQ glaze from Persimmon Hill Berry Farm is any good. I mean blackberries on ribs? Sounds interesting. Have you tried it?

The answer to Matt's word problem is 7.32 henwayes.

This is just so JWolg can carry out the joke...

"What's a henwaye?"

Okay, if I drop a pound of feathers and a pound of bricks from the top of the cobra roll on Wildfire, how long will it take to move Thunderation to Celebration City?

Its not bad really, it makes the ribs a little tangy but overall I give it a 7 (out of 10

Cool. Thanks Branson Boy. I will be there next summer and will go pick some up.

Yes Yakov's popularity has not only been good the past 20 years but it has grown! the only was i can answer your question is to say taht people love him and unlike some Branson shows he changes his enough each year to make people feel like they have never been there before *** Edited 6/2/2004 1:01:03 PM UTC by Branson-Boy***

Its name is A Blast Into The Wilderness, Powder Keg is a nick name that the developers used so that they did not have to say the whole name, also a "Power Keg" is picured on the sign that says "A Blast Into The Wilderness, Summer 2005" wich is posted on the construction site. so yes they will have a five word name for the coaster but for locals in the branson area and roller coaster geeks like use it will be called Powder Keg

I can understand why people would think that the new ride would have water, its because the ride it is taking place of was named Buzz Saw Falls, a "water coaster" prototype. Buzz Saw was built in 99 and it was the worlds first and only "water coaster." The construction on the new ride has not taken place yet so some of Buzz Saw still can be seen including the chain lift and the spash down area. it look like it is being built and not torn down like it really is. so i hope i have cleared things up for you and i think (think) it is safe to say that there will be no splashes on the new ride

I can definitly tell you that spacecase8310 stands by his name! it will not be Shoji themed and once again no water!
