“Not my thing”
Reviewed September 3, 2014

I honestly thing WOF has better rides and stores than I found at Silver Dollar City. So many hills up and down there if we had not reserved and paid ahead for an electric wheelchair my husband would not have been able to even walk there cause it has only been 5 months since he shattered his knee and broke his leg in a severe motorcycle accident. The traffic is horrid on 76 will not go back to Branson not enough fun for me.

“Takes you back in time”
Reviewed September 3, 2014

We had been to Silver Dollar City about 20 years ago and it was nice to see that the values of this family theme park has not changed. Loved the music and the evening show in Echo Hollow. The roller coasters were great. The food was amazing. We had an awesome tour guide for the cave tour. The cave tour is a must to learn about the history of Silver Dollar City. Great times!

“holy hills”
Reviewed September 3, 2014

The park is pretty clean with a variety of things to see and do for most age groups ... small children are very limited. While the park is themed like back woods it was VERY disappointing to walk through huge clouds of cigarette smoke by the poorly located 'smoking areas' for some reason they put them right next to main walkways. And to get back to my title OMG the hills in this park!! anything in the front half is like climbing the Andes. Add a child on your back and i felt like i did the underground cave 4 times ( the cave is a must see though .. and free)

"The City" as the locals call it, is absolutely the best buy for your dollar! There are attractions for every member of your family from the teacups in the kids park to a sitdown concert in "the hollow". The vast array of food is awesome. Grab a corndog and lemonade and continue down the street or sit down at one of the resturants for a mouth watering meal. You won't forget your trip to "the city"!
