Fireman’s Landing at Silver Dollar City Sparks Family Fun

Sound the alarm!  Silver Dollar City has unveiled an all new attraction for 2015 – Fireman’s Landing.  The firefighters-themed play area, which is replacing Geyser Gulch, features 10 new family adventures.  Six kid-friendly rides and four interactive play zones are planned, all of which aim to salute the spirit and courage of firefighters.  Designed with the atmosphere and theming of an old-time firefighter recruitment fair, activities will test skills of recruits while training and entertaining. 

The centerpiece of Fireman’s Landing is Station No. 3, which is firefighter headquarters.  At the Station, visitors can meet the station’s newest Dalmatian resident and sign-up for three training activities:

  • Firefighter’s Fire Drill – Featuring buckets, pumpers, foam ball cannons and targets for showering mock fires
  • Firefighter’s Fire Escape – An obstacle course of tubes, mazes, climbing structures and slides
  • Firefighter’s Junior Escape – A soft play area for toddlers

 

Other Fireman’s Landing attractions and rides include:

  • Fire Spotter – Soaring balloons for spotting fire dangers
  • Fire Wagon Frenzy – A bumpy ride for bucket brigade volunteers
  • FireFall – The 8-story fire tower free-fall drop ride for the more daring recruit
  • Fireman’s Flyer – A low-flying swing ride for little firefighters
  • Up the Ladder – A smaller tower drop ride for junior recruits
  • The Roundaboat – A bouncing ride on Dalmatians racing around a fire hydrant
  • Firehouse Splash Yard – Squirting water jets and pump hoses
With the addition of Fireman’s Landing, which encompasses nearly two acres, Silver Dollar City Branson will now have over 40 rides and attractions available to visitors.  The $8 million dollar project is scheduled to open in spring 2015.  Are you ready to volunteer for family fun?
