Silver Dollar City buys Branson USA

I heard on the local radio station that Silver Dollar City has bought Branson USA. SDC is not ready to announce what they plan to do with B-USA at this time.

As long as they keep Fireball they will be fine. ;-)

"Fireball in the hole!" - the official slogan of the 2001 ACE Spring Con.

I know it's not true, but I could have sworn that I heard once that SDC bought Magic Springs.

Just curious as to what you are talking about Shaggy.  Fire in the Hole is the operating coaster at SDC, where you hear "Fire in the Hole" before the big drop at the end.  Fireball doesn't exist anywhere in Branson, but you did have a ;) at the end.  Some kind of inside joke?  Firestorm is at Branson U.S.A.  I doubt Fire in the Hole is going anywhere, but who knows what SDC is planning on doing with Branson USA.

You must mean 'Fire in The Hole' was the slogan. It was said almost everytime before the drop on Wildfire. I never heard anyone say Fireball in the Hole.


FYI: The Fireball is located at Branson, USA. Well worth stopping and taking a spin on if you are in the area.

Incidentalist and Coasterdave:

No, I meant "Fireball in the hole" was the slogan chanted by all.

When we had ERT at Branson USA, it was very late at night after the parks closing.  To everyones surprise, the Fireball (the name of the large inverted Frisbee style ride they have) was the hit of the evening.  I personally must have ridden that thing 20 times.

SDC indeed has a ride called "Fire in the hole" however once everyone had ridden and fallen in love with Fireball they began chanting "Fireball in the hole."  I must have heard it chanted 500 times over those few days.

Fireball (not Firestorm) is easily one of the best flat rides I have ridden to date.  A real blast and don't miss treat.  If I recall, Sean F was there as well and probably ended up getting even more rides on it than I.
