"Christmas at Silver Dollar City"
February, 2018 NEW
We had an absolutely magical time at Silver Dollar City during their Christmas celebration. It was relatively warm for December, so the roller coasters were all running. We really enjoyed the rides. At night the Christmas lights were magical. The new area of Christmas lights was noticeably brilliant. We had a truly wonderful time.

Tip: Be sure to get there early if you're going on a Saturday in December, because the parking lots and the park fill up fast. There are plenty of fun places to eat and shop as well as rides.

"No Rides Open"
February, 2018 NEW
We didn't realize that none of the rides are open if it falls below a certain temperature, not by any fault of SDC - I'm sure they post that somewhere that we overlooked- so it wasn't really that much fun this time around. We've been several other times and loved it but the Christmas program and parade in the evening makes it all worth while!!!

Tip: Paying to park is a bit of a waste for most people. You can park in any lot and they will get you right to the main gate on trams. Same with pick up.

"Fantastic Varied Theme Park"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 21, 2018 NEW
We weren't sure what to expect from SDC as it didn't seem to have the big rides that 6 flags and other theme parks had but we defo weren't disappointed. Quite the opposite. The tickets are expensive at $65 but similar to prices in UK for theme park entrance. We were lucky to get a BOGOF on our tickets. As we were going on a Thurs we saw online that if you bought your tickets from a certain store you would get 2 tickets for price of 1! Which we did. Was worth searching for this elusive shop. The drive to the park is beautiful and bit scary as its high up. There was quite a queue to get into the car park but we went first thing in the park and yes we had to park away down the bottom but there is a bus that takes you into the park. Once at the ticket desk again another bit of a queue but then we were in the park. We didn't know where to start but saw there was a show about to start. They were called the Sons of the silver dollar. Silver Dollar City's resident male trio took to the stage singing popular, western, bluegrass and gospel music with power packed three part harmonies. They were fantastic and as we were seated and plenty seats it was a good way to start our day off. Would recommend stopping by to see this group. I was on crutches but didn't realise you can go to guest services and get a special leaflet that you give to staff at rides and you will be asked various health and safety questions to determine your fitness to ride . Its not your usual theme park with a host of rides. There was many shows and we enjoyed seeing Frontier Follies which is an all girl show signing dancing set in a saloon bar and my personal favourite the Wild Mustang show with the very talented Mustang expert Fred Woehl and his partner Phil. We were thinking about going into the Wild West Show when Fred invited us to his show. He was very taken with us being Scottish and chatted to us before going to get ready for his show. He is a well known wild mustang expert and during his show brings out a wild mustang that he has been working with a gives commands and sometimes they work and sometimes they don't as these are wild horses. His knowledge showed throughout his show and everyone was very interested in listening to him. He was also very kind giving away free prizes during his show and he gave us a few to take away with us. He personally signed a mustang pic i have up in my room as did Phil. Loved this show and would like to see it again. There were various places to get different varieties of food from burgers to salad to popcorn. throughout the day and different parts of the park there are craftsmen shows and lots of beautiful craft shops that you can go in and browse. We didn't get to do as many rides as we thought we might but we were happy to go on a ride and have a wander through the park and go into a few shops. Loved all the rides we did. American plunge fab water ride but man do you get wet! Luckily the sun was shining and we dried out. Fire in the hole was a fantastic roller coaster and loved waiting to see what was going to pop up next. The steam train was a nice ride with a few surprises along the way but a big wait to go on. Grand Exposition coaster was great roller coaster. Outlaw run was a fantastic roller coaster and i didn't stop screaming from start to finish! So many twists and loops. Powder Keg was The best roller coaster and totally surprised me as didn't look like it was going to be that fast but boy does it go quick. Flooded mine as a lot of fun too though hubby beat my score. We had a fantastic day and cant wait to go back. Don't judge this old theme park by its looks as i think you will be pleasantly surprised.

For the amount of money it costs to go in we were very disappointed. Not many good rides and had to walk forever to find them. Wouldn’t go again.

"Great Family Fun, But For Us Old Folks You Can Skip A Few Years Between Visits!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 20, 2018 NEW
Silver Dollar City is a great, fun, adventure park, loaded with tons of musical talent, dancers, magicians, glass blowers, candy makers, shops galore, blacksmiths, shows, rides, food, you name it! Once inside all the shows and rides are included in your admission price. Tons of crafts persons have their wares for sale, and there are tons of gift shops as well. Food and drink, of course, are extra. The park runs several themed sessions every year, and the place is incredible during the Christmas season; however, most people vacation about the same time every year and the themed sessions run about the same time every year and they don't change very much year-to-year, so you'll probably see much the same each year if you go about the same time. My wife and I have been going in the Fall every year, so we only go about every 3 years now. I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU BUY SEASON PASSES FOR THOSE YEARS YOU DO PLAN TO GO BECAUSE A SEASON PASS COSTS LESS THAN TWO SINGLE DAY ADMISSIONS! Also, if you buy late in the year for the following year you get an "Early-bird" discount on the season tickets. If you're a local or can get to the park several different times a year, you'll definitely want season passes! They really are a great bargain as long as you go at least two or more times a year. Kids love this place, there are tons of rides, roller-coasters, water rides, crafts, food, etc. And for us bigger kids there are a ton of stuff to do as well, shows, music, food, etc. Oh, and every night when the park closes there is a really good Country Western show in Echo Hollow! Food service at Echo Hollow stays open during the show. The show is usually excellent with some great local talent. Silver Dollar City is very family oriented and does not sell any alcoholic beverages, and you are not allowed to bring any in. It is a NON-SMOKING park; however, there are designated smoking areas. There are ample free parking lots and free shuttle bus service runs all day long. My wife and I love Silver Dollar City, and I've been going since it first opened! Before the park opened all that was there was Marvel Cave...which is still part of Silver Dollar City today, included at no additional cost, and it is a beautiful cave! The park, with the exception of the Marvel Cave tour, is handicap accessible and motorized carts are available for rental just inside the entrance to the park. Go visit Silver Dollar City, you'll like it!
