5 Favorite Things to Do at Silver Dollar City this Fall

The Ozarks are an enchanting place to visit during the fall season. One of the attractions where fall shines in Branson is Silver Dollar City. The 1880s theme park fully embraces autumn with themed displays, delicious foods, and even a special festival celebrating Americana. With this in mind, here are five things to do at Silver Dollar City this fall you’re sure to love.

5 Top Things to Do at Silver Dollar City this Fall

1) Attend Fall Festival Events

The National Harvest Festival (also known as the National Crafts & Cowboy Festival) is a salute to the American West. The most exciting part of the festival is the Western Stunt Show, featuring professional stuntmen and women performing amazing feats. Watch 3-story falls, rapid-slide rappels, and good old fashion street fights bring back the wild in Wild West. To complete the cowboy experience, visit Buck Taylor’s Cowboy Emporium during your Silver Dollar City visit.

2) Watch Craftsmen at Work

Silver Dollar City is known for its talented craftsmen who operate in the park, creating everything from glassworks to knives to jewelry. During the National Crafts & Cowboy Festival, over 125 craftsmen visit the park adding to the amount of talent available. Visiting craftsmen include Best of Missouri Hands Juried Artists and the Table Rock Art Guild. Take time to browse the vast selection of artwork and crafts. You’re bound to find something you love to take home!

3) Ride the Frisco Line

The Park operates the Frisco Silver Dollar Line throughout the year. But, it’s especially enjoyable during autumn. Take a leisurely 20-minute steam train ride through the beautiful Ozark countryside surrounding Silver Dollar City and get a glimpse of Ozark Mountain fall foliage. Charge your phone or bring an extra camera on this train ride. The array of colors on the Ozark Mountains make for picture-perfect photo opportunities along the way.

4) Fill up on Fall Treats

One of the best treats to fill up on during fall at Silver Dollar City Branson is an apple dumpling. Surrounded by mounds of cinnamon ice cream, the dumpling hits the spot between sweet, warm and cold, all in one bite. When the weather is a bit nippier, nothing goes better together than hot cocoa and funnel cake. Of course, if treats aren’t your thing, there are plenty of places to eat at Silver Dollar City sure to satisfy. We can all agree that chowing down on sweet treats and savory meals are some of the best things to do at Silver Dollar City this fall.

5) Ride Wildfire

Wildfire, one of Silver Dollar City’s premier roller coasters, offers the best views of the surrounding area. Keep your eyes open (if you can!) and take in the colors of the season as you loop through the racing course. And, if you’re up for the challenge, go for a ride on the brand-new coaster, Time Traveler. Although, you might not be able to keep your eyes open long enough to see the Ozark Mountains fall foliage!

Experience Non-Stop Autumn Fun at Silver Dollar City

For eye-popping fall foliage, various types of arts & crafts, and engaging fall festivals, a trip to Silver Dollar City is a must. Purchase one or two-day Silver Dollar City tickets and explore all the Branson theme park has to offer with your family this fall.
