    My husband and I visited SDC in late September and had a wonderful time! Lines were not long and we were able to ride all the rides within a decent amount of time. Definitely went home tired!  more »

    Very expensive if your not doing the rides. Nice shops not a big selection on places to eat pricey food that was not so good. The best thing was the cowboy festival that was going on. Will probably no...  more »

    The best part of the "City" was the entertainment. There are several venues that provide live entertainment. There was plenty of sitting and the shows last about 30 minutes. Snacks galore but booths d...  more »

    Had a blast here. Lots of cooler rides, decent food & prices for an amusement park. There are quite a few good shows. Everyone who works there has always been so nice. One of the few entertainment venues that offer free parking & free shuttle to the park. I can't wait to come again.

    It was a fun place to visit with the family. There are a lot of different shows and rides to keep everyone entertained. The food selection is great and we had a hard time deciding what we wanted. There are a ton of different places to shop, but they are so expensive that we didn't really buy anything except for a shot glass and a Christmas ornament. Going during the week is much better than the weekend. It wasn't real crowded on a Tuesday and there wasn't any long lines waiting for rides.

    Saturday, July 1st my wife and I went to Silver Dollar City. Friendly staff, good food, and great rides. I love the 1880s theme throughout the entire park. I wish they would have updated water fountains that were easy to find. It would also be helpful for them to have more directions signs pointing to the bigger attractions. If you're looking for a discount, we could not find one. It's a little bit pricey at $61 a person, but overall it's a great park and you can spend a lot of time there (I think there is a discount on Thursday's) They also have a few free parking lots. Will come back again.

    Silver Dollar City is definitely worth your money! There are barely any wait time for rides. If there is it’s only about 5 minutes. AMAZING! Like every amusement park the food prices are way too high but they have a high variety of different foods to choose from which I might say are pretty delicious. Their rides are super fun! My personal favorite is the Wildcat! Definitely will be returning.

    So much fun! Lots of rides and shows for the entire family. Our older teenagers love it here. Watch the glass blowers as they are amazing. Funnel cakes are a must!! Fresh made strawberry lemonade. Yum! Harlem Globetrotters trotters was a great show. Raft ride is so fun but plan on getting wet!

Where to stay in Branson
