Pretty good turn out this year.
First up was Brad, the GM of Silver Dollar City.

Country Music Weekend will feature concerts by Pam Tillis and Diamond Rio in Echo Hollow. Harvest Festival will have a Wild West Stunt Show in Echo Hollow. Christmas will introduce "It's A Wonderful Life" a new musical in the Heritage Hall. AND finally, he said that the Mystery 2013 addition would excite the ACErs. Soumds like a new coaster to me, but that opinion is just Mine.
