2023 will be the final season of operation for Fire In The Hole. After entertaining more than 25 million guests, this iconic ride will close at the end of the year and be replaced with a brand-new version of this ride in 2024.

Silver Dollar City's Fire In The Hole is a unique attraction that combines a dark ride with roller coaster elements. The ride has five fire brigade-like trains that welcome volunteers (you) to catch the bad guys and save the citizens of this real-life town. The story takes you through the iconic burning town of Marmaros which was set ablaze by the infamous gang of Baldknobbers. The experience includes meet townsfolk like Red Flanders wearing only his red long johns, traveling over the burning Kinney Bridge, and nearly getting hit by the train coming down the tracks before dropping through a surprisingly wet splashdown all in an effort to extinguish the flames.

During several sections, the trains are propelled by electric motors rather than gravity, so some purists refuse to recognize Fire In The Hole as a roller coaster. However, the ride also includes three gravity-propelled drops, and therefore a strong argument can be made that it is in fact a roller coaster. So I guess you're left to decide for yourself…is it a roller coaster or not?
