Silver Dollar City
A day at Silver Dollar City is a trip back in time; it will take you back to the days when the people living in these mountains created everything needed from local materials using their own hands. Artisans of a bygone era create crafts onsite and sell them to the public. You can even try your hand at glass blowing and pottery making. While all this is okay for stuffy adults, the kid in all of us can get an adrenaline rush from such thrill rides as Buzzsaw Falls, the Runaway Mine Train, Fire in the Hole and the Wildfire Roller Coaster. Numerous festivals also take place at the park throughout the year.
this was my first and probably last trip to sdc. parking is terrible (unless you want to pay $20 extra) tickets are outragous and the overall entertainment value ,well lets just say i could have stayed home and watched tv. top that all off i took my cousin with us he rode on one roller coaster the kid one at that (he is 17) we had to take him to the hospital today because ever sinse he rode it he has been in pain. the doctor said he has a thoracic strain from riding the roller coaster. this is a kids ride but as it comes up the hill it is VERY jerky which is probably what cuased his injury. i personaly was bored out of my mind and was just as happy to sit with my one yeaqr old duaghter as anything else. what a waste of a lot of money.
Self-described opinion of my ten year old -- "This place is a waste of time. At first I was couldn't wait to go there, but when I got there it was nothing like on TV. I couldn't ride anything because the lines were too long and the rides looked cheap. It was just one big outdoor restaurant with cheap playgrounds. Spend your time seeing the other stuff in Branson and please avoid Silver Dollar City because it is not like the way people make you believe with neat roller coasters and pools. Also, beware, the parking lot gate costs lots money and more once your inside the "City."
Theme park-please-Country/Western show park-it's not for the young ethnic/urban groups. It's was pretty boring-only a couple of rides that were fun and the other 3 yes 3-wasn't worth the wait in line-basically don't waste your money-we're never going back!
Silver Dollar City is just another money pit now. It is not the 'cool' old stuff it used to be. It is way too much money just to get in the gate. Then all the stuff inside is double what you pay elsewhere in Branson. Save your money and see the other ton of stuff to see in Branson Area.
Lines Were BAD!! FOOD STUNK!!! No FUn rides!! Shops were closed! TICKETS COSTS THRU THE ROOF!!! EEEEWW!! BATHROOMS! No I do not reccomend it! IT is ok if you are not into rides i guess! Bring food cause grease is covering theres! and in general i did not like it!
Attended the Christmas display at the Park on 12/16/06, I have been to SDC near Christmas time for several years.
Usually found experience very enjoyable. This year was the exception. Crowd was unbelievable! Who can enjoy packed streets, extremely long lines, people arguing, heels stepped on, and a general aura of unhappiness. I thought this was supposed to be a pleasant Christmas experience.
I fix the blame squarly on SDC's shoulders. Shame on them for allowing such obvious overcrowding. Is their no maximum safe capacity at this facility? I don't mind a company trying to make money but at what cost? This is a family enviroment, you should not have to worry about your families safety. Very dissapointed.
My family has visited the park 2-3 times/yr since 1973. We were very appalled and disappointed by our last visit in December 2005. The crouds were out of hand and the parking was Horrific.
We were watching the x-mas parade when my 8yr old and I were litteraly knocked to the ground by the croud. There was no where for people to exit so they pumelled in to the parade watchers.
When we left the Park we were stuck in our parking spot for 2.5 HOURS. NO movement what so ever!! When we did start to move it was very slow, we spent another 1 HOUR in line.
I noticed two of the "security" personnel sitting in a golf cart watching people exit. NO ONE WAS WORKING ON THE PROBLEM.
They have changed parkinglots around and created confusion and problems. The one attendant they had was more interested in running around than directing traffic. Everyone got in a log jam due to the blocking off of exits and limited space. I don't know if I saw more than 1 or 2 employees that smiled or acknowleded our presence unless we prompted them. Power surges caused rides to be shut down for extended periods of time. They used to be a big reason to come to Branson- in my last 4 visits- my family has enjoyed it once... They're triing to hard to be something their not. If they price wasn't so high I could overlook some of their faults.
