SDC to announce new park this week

Posted Tuesday, July 16, 2002 6:47 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Silver Dollar City officials have delayed an announcement expected today about plans for a new theme park in Branson on the site of the former Branson USA amusement park. The announcement was postponed until later this week after an accident at Silver Dollar City left 19 people with minor injuries after a walkway to a ride collapsed. One woman may have suffered leg fractures in the fall. Silver Dollar City bought the property in November, and has spent the past several months formulating what to do with the 110 acres about three miles east of their 1890s theme park.

I'm very excited as to what's going in... I went to BUSA last year, and it holds mucho sentimental value for me... I got to reride my first-ever coaster, Zyklon... but what's going in will be MUCH better...

Hopefully there'll be some *big* construction goin' on...

You knew me; I didn't know you; I knew you not. I met you, and I no more knew you not. Now I know you, I wish I knew you not. You wish you didn't not knew me not?

Maybe they should just hand over the property to the victims of the accident.

Why, they'd just sell it back for a profit, or even worse *shudder* sell it to developers who build a mall!

Crito, ergo sum.

We've traded a lot of amusement parks for stinkin' malls. :(

Malls: the highest and best use of any piece of property. ;)
