This was part of the World Fest period at the park. This act was not here during the festival in 2015. It was a large group, the costumes were beautiful and the dancing very professional. What I also liked was the explanation of the coming dance on a video screen. This is included in the price of your ticket and well worth your time
This is a very unique Amusement Park. It is made to feel like you are stepping back in time to the 1800's. They have several rides for people who like them along with 4-5 roller coasters, They have lots of shops, shows such as a Saloon Show and several craftsman who constantly through out the day show you how the people from the past would blow glass, make taffy, carve wood, iron work, make lye soap etc. Good for the whole family for kids to adults. The also have several festivals through out the year like kids fest, world fest, bbq fest, bluegrass fest and old time country Christmas (which is my favorite festival )
Silver Dollar City has been one of out favorite places for 48 years. We feel we've grown with the park. World Fest is especially one of our times to visit as we love the different cultures represented. Sorry this it the last year. We don't indulge in the rides like we used too, but they are spectacular! I love the crafts myself and always find something unique either for myself or for gifts. Our children have always loved Marvel Cave and even though they are grown now will go on the tour at least once a year. We did find that attending all the shows this year was a problem. The big shows all started and ended at the same time. Thus the walkways were crowded when the shows were out and the lines were long waiting for the start. I would suggest staggered starting times in the future. But walking around that city is a joy in itself. I just love it!
