"Weekend getaway"
December, 2018 NEW
As always this is my favorite time of year to go to SDC. My kids love the rides and lights. Something for everyone! It’s best to go when everyone is at work/school if possible to cut down on chaos. Also, best to watch weather and try to go on a nice day as there is not much shelter there from rain/cold but there are shops to purchase hoddies and ponchos if needed. Love this place!

Tip: The SDC app is so helpful!! It helps you plan what you want to do and get it all done without walking back and forth searching for things and missing times of shows.

This was my second time at Silver Dollar City during the Christmas season. It did not disappoint. We saw "Dickens A Christmas Carol" and it was as good as any other show I have ever seen. My favorite is the Hometown Pickers - highly recommend.

"No show"
November, 2018 NEW
We had gone for the day and had planned to see the shows and stay for the lights. We didn’t see any shows because you had to stand in line for over 2 hours and my back wouldn’t be able to do it. We were so tired of dodging people we didn’t stay for the lights. We had really been looking forward to this but it was a bust

We visited the day before Thanksgiving. Had my mother-in-law with us and needed a motorized scooter, but all were rented. Luckily we were able to get one later in the day. The park was very crowded as expected, but I don't understand why they don't open any earlier than 1pm, seriously! The new Time Traveler coaster is the best coaster I've ever ridden!!! Loved it! Perfectly engineered. Saw the Christmas Carol show and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Expensive day, but we had fun.

Reviewed December 11, 2018 NEW
This is a must do during the holidays. Despite the price it is well worth the time and money to see the lights. And don’t miss the lighting of the tree. The shows are also incredible, especially Its A Wonderful Life. To save money go to the local Price Chopper store and get coupons for Thursdays ($45). Like all amusement parks food and souvenirs can be high. My wife and I plan to make this an annual event if possible.
