New park to be open night time only (branson USA)

Sunday, November 3, 2002 7:02 AM

Came across an article(already sent it into news) about the improvements going on at SDC's new celebration city(formerly Branson USA). Article says the park will only be open from 3-11pm, my question is are there any other parks out there just night time only. The article also talsk about the new coasters coming in and has 1 pic of coaster being built.

Army Rangers lead the way

Does it really need to be open any longer though. They won't have alot of attractions.

960 PPH is not much.


Now Reopened With A New Layout!!!

Sounds like the ownership is trying to avoid competing with itself. SDC open 9:30 to 6:00. CC open 3:00 to 11:00. Just 3 hours of overlap.

I bet it's better this way. People will go to SDC, go back to the hotel, eat dinner, and go to CC. This will look twice as good on attendence figures, and will look like a greater experience then if CC were inside of SDC. Plus, some people will pay for both admissions (if they're foolish:))

How many rides must a man go on, before you may call him a fan?

Well, are you going to have to pay for both admissions or is there going to be a system that if you go to SDC you can also purchase a ticket to cebebration city for just a bit more (10, 15 dollars??) or maybe a two for one kind of deal for a discount?

Dinner at 3:00 PM, whose house are you eaten at? Mama never has the cobbler and black-eye peas ready before 7:00

Also, this may seem kind of akward but there is word going around that System of a Down is going to be playing at SDC or Celebration City during their tour next year.

On another note, Xcelerator would have gone perfect in the Route 66 section. Too bad they already have a ride called Accelerator in the park and that Knotts already has the orginal Xcelerator.

Question, are there any other coaster ,beside Ozark Wildcat and Firestorm, that you can only rie at night? Will these two be the first?

The article says The Ozark Wildcat plus two more steel coasters (which I imagine one would be Firestorm). I have no idea what the other one might be, unless it is the Dragon Wagon -- not sure how that would fit into the theme though.

Geez, does everyone forget about thier plus-sized Dragon Wagon so quickly? I'm not positive it is the third coaster..but I don't remember hearing about it being sold off either.

As of Nov 10th the Dragon Wagon is still on site, saw as I went by on my way to SDC, so it may very well be the third coaster that has been mentioned.
