Silver Dollar City, Branson, Missouri

Silver Dollar City is one of the most beautiful parks in the world.  There is not a single corner of the park that isn't covered with trees, wonderfully landscaped or doesn't look like it was always that way.

There has been an insane amount of gab happening on social media about these survey markers that recently sprung up around Thunderation's queue, the Echo Hollow Amphitheater and all the way back to The Grand Exposition.

There are all sorts of various numbers and different colored ribbons on the survey markers.

Now if you look carefully the survey marker in the back it says "Coaster".  So the big question to ask is this really for a coaster and if it is what kind?  With these covering a large section of wooded and hilly real estate it certainly gets the coaster enthusiast's imagination going and heart beating?

Other changes to notice is that land clearing has began.  You can see this from the road into Silver Dollar City and if you take Thunderation for a ride there is clearing down at the bottom of the first half with trees wrapped various colored ribbons around them marking which ones to remove and which ones to keep.  Another thing to note is that next to Thunderation's lift sits a brand new double wide trailer...the kind a construction company would use for a site office.

Whatever it is I would look for it to be big.  As this is Silver Dollar City it will be something amazing.  I don't think anyone outside of park management and those who have access to the aforementioned construction office really know what it is going to be.  I had meetings with Silver Dollar City's Public Relations staff for my other job of being a Regional Representative for the American Coaster Enthusiasts (we are planning several amazing events including Coaster Christmas this November 12th) and I was told that the coaster was not what everyone was guessing (B&M Hyper or Wing Rider at the time).  Who knows but time will tell.
