Silver Dollar City
Silver Dollar City is a theme park that is located in Branson, Missouri. Sporting an old fashioned theme, this park gives visitors an idea of what it was like to live in the Ozark Mountains during the 1880s. The park is owned by the Herschend Family Entertainment, who operates other Branson attractions like the White Water Water Park, Showboat Branson Belle and Ride the Ducks attraction.
Built around Marvel Cave, Silver Dollar City was originally a five building frontier town created to sell souvenirs to visitors of the cave. The park has grown to become the largest tourist attraction in Southwest Missouri and a popular summer destination for many midwestern families. Centered on Frontier life, the theme park has a great selection of amusement rides that includes roller coasters, water rides and those geared towards young children, plus a crafts colony, six festivals and live shows that help you travel back in time.
While not famous for its roller coaster, Silver Dollar City has a great collection. Wildfire is a giant looping steel coaster. Thunderation is a classic steel mine train coaster and Powder Keg explodes into action with a thrilling launch to nearly 55 miles-per-hour in just under three seconds.
Other park attractions include The American Plunge, a locals favorite, where riders ride in raft shaped logs and experience a 50-foot drop into a splash down pool. Two more water rides are the Water Toboggan, and the most popular one the Lost River white water rafting ride.
