"Unforgettable Family Fun"
August, 2018 NEW
Buying the discounted 2-day ticket to SDC on Reserve Branson allowed us an extra day of fun in the park & gave us extra funds to spend on souvenirs at the park for our family. Thank you Reserve Branson. We’ll definitely purchase tickets to SDC again from your website.

"Overall nice with a few drawbacks"
August, 2018 NEW
Clean and well maintained. Not great for people with mobility issues. Even the younger adults in our group were challenged by the terrain. The maps are good around the park but a little difficult to navigate without looking at the map. More signage on the sidewalks or something may be needed. The shows and demos all ended before around 3pm it seemed like but the park was open extended hours. Hardly any shops were open extended hours and the ones that were had very long walks between. The price for a one day ticket is too high. They really push the season ticket. But when you only have a few days on Branson you don't want to spend the whole time at silver dollar city. The reserve Branson price was nice because it allowed 2 days for only a little more than a single day. The shuttle was very quick into the park and back to our car. The cost of the refill mug was reasonable and handy. There could be more water fountains throughout the park for those who don't want soda. The benches available almost everywhere was good since the hills really were difficult for several in our group. A wristband system to pay would be a nice option so you aren't pulling cash from your pocket all the time. I like the rides that have areas to observe the riders. That was nice for grandparents to be able to see the kids while they are on the rides. Many rides are not visible to spectators so you do a lot of waiting and wondering when they are going to be on the ride.

Tip: Prepare to walk alot and try to plan your backpack or bag as light as possible. It's a long way to get things back to the lockers or your car throughout the day.

"Fun day at Silver Dollar City"
August, 2018 NEW
Silver Dollar City is like a pioneer version of Six Flags. It was a fun experience for our family of 4. Our boys loved it. Our oldest son loved the rollercoasters. Our youngest son loved looking around and riding the kiddie rides. We were there until they closed at midnight. The most amazing part of it was riding in a water raft while they had a fireworks show on, which was real close to the water raft ride. That was cool.

"It was okay"
August, 2018 NEW
I personally didn't like all the uphill walking, not because of laziness but because it's to hot to walk that far in the heat. Some of the rides were fun. But when we went alot of rides and places lost power. So we didn't get to enjoy alot of things. We had a 2 day pass and didn't even go the 2nd day we were disappointed so badly with the 1st.

Tip: Prepare to walk alot uphill, and hope alot of the rides aren't shut down or lost power.

"Best rides were shut down"
August, 2018 NEW
I haven't been here in years but our daughter wanted to ride the rides. It was very disappointing as all the good rides, including the Time Traveler (new one), was shut down. They wouldn't say why and they wouldn't say when it would be fixed. There are very few rides as it is here. Mostly stores for you buy things or watch someone make something. So the rides that ARE there would be nice to be able to ride. Unfortunately, that was not the case. We live in Kansas City and have Worlds of Fun. We'll just go there instead of wasting several hundred dollars to come to Branson and go to Silver Dollar City. Total waste of time and money

Reviewed August 16, 2018 NEW
First you can get a 2 day pass at many of your resorts for only 5 dollars more than a regular 1 day ticket. Go on a weekday if possible. Nothing here for the very young newborn -2 year old but if your toddler is 32in tall there is a wonderful children's area just for them. Many thrill seeking rides for the young adult and young at heart and a lot of shows to choose from if you want to just sit down and relax for awhile. We will definitely be back. Oh, and their refillable drink cup is good for FOREVER.

Reviewed August 16, 2018 NEW
We got the three day pass and spent two days at SDC and one day at Whitewater. Kids loved it and adults did as well. I especially liked that there were rides and things to do for people of all ages- little kids to seniors. We went on most of the rides- it was busy but even then there weren't long lines on anything but the most popular roller coasters. Staff were all friendly and accommodating. Free parking was a plus and you can bring in your own food and drinks but I didn't think food or souveniers were too expensive compared to other places. Landscaping was beautifully done as well. Go early first thing in the morning and you can do most rides pretty much no lines at all for the first hour or two.

Reviewed August 16, 2018 NEW
Okay, it has been over thirty years since I have been there and so I am that much older. I took my daughter and her 4-year-old daughter for a few days. The weather was against us and that's nobody's fault. The first day we were there the rides closed down due to a lightning storm in the area so we left. After walking around and gawking at stuff, we only got on one ride. It seemed like most of what we saw was food! Everywhere we turned was another food vendor. All the rides were for older kids, except for the one we found, which closed after we road it once. We did better on day two, got there earlier before the rain storms came and found the area for small kids. We never saw any of the music shows, some weren't happening and we had limited time again because of impending rain. Still, food everywhere! We picked up a couple of turkey legs to take home and exited through the gift shop! Never made it back for the third day and it rained all day. We still had some things to do, but maybe next year, if there is one. It was clean, and people were pleasant. We got the 15 dollar drink mug as had been suggested and kept refilling it as it was hot when it wasn't raining. We used the free parking as others suggested too and that was great. No need to pay for parking there, the shuttles are frequant and fast.

First and foremost -- PARKING WAS FREE !! YES FREE ! Unheard of at the dozens of other theme parks I have visited over my lifetime. I had no idea how this would set the mood of positivity for the remainder of the day :) So MUCH APPRECIATION to the owners and managers for freeing up this expenditure to use elsewhere while in the park itself !! Our visit was during the hottest and driest July on record in recent times. This theme park was designed to compensate for that with plenty of shaded areas, trees, areas to sit, misting machines and more. The layout was perfectly planned and landscaped for distributing its patrons in a way that never made one feel crowded. It had a fabulous mixture of both rides and entertainment, and intermingled demonstrations that both allowed for educational opportunities and engaged the guests. The rides were FUN ! Each ride provided ample length and entertainment, none of them were a waste of time (admittedly most them parks have some that are just a downright bore... NOT here). Food choices were excellent in variety and cost. Buffets, the usual kiosks and snack bars were placed conveniently throughout the park, so one never walked too far to reach their goal. It was also nice to see many young people's talent on display. Not your typical "1000 auditions later they put together a "show", but real everyday folks who loved what they were doing (such as forms of dancing), and had their families there cheering them on from the audience. The entire atmosphere was like an oldschool family field day, with the bonus of thrill rides and roller coasters thrown in. I hope the blue ribbon management team of this place keeps up the EXCELLENT work for many decades to come, so that others can continue to enjoy what a family vacation is all about !! What are you waiting for -- put this one on the must do list :)
