Silver Dollar City

This massive theme park brings in about two million visitors each year and is one of the most popular destinations in the area. It has plenty of family-friendly charm tucked into the beautiful Ozark Mountains. It offers visitors a full day of more than forty thrilling rides and attractions, over forty live entertainment shows daily, and an exciting look back into the 19th-century culture of the Ozarks. There are many great places to eat, unique shops to browse, live music to enjoy, and enough entertainment to keep you busy for the entire day! Some of the most notable rides include Outlaw Run, Time Traveler, WildFire, and PowderKeg.

Located on sixty acres, the amusement park opened on May 1, 1960, and is situated on the site of Marvel Cave, one of the Ozarks' oldest attractions. The history of this cave is fascinating with the tourism of it dating back to the late 1800s. Once it began drawing in more and more tourism, the owners decided to open up something else to bring in even more visitors to the area. The theme park originally opened as a site of a church, a log cabin, five shops, and a street production of the feud between the Hatfields and McCoys. The park brought in 125,000 guests the first year! That is four times the number of people that toured Marvel Cave annually. Come see why this theme park draws in so many visitors each year! During the summer, be sure to visit White Water, operated by the SDC company, for fun water park thrills.

Of course, theme parks and lakes are not the only things that this town has to offer. There is also a wide variety of other entertainment.

If you are feeling daring and want some adventure, book a helicopter tour over the city, play some mini golf or laser tag, or zipline through the trees. For those who want to enjoy Branson things that are a little more laid back, head to the Titanic Museum Attraction, the Rainforest Adventure, Track Family Fun Park, the Hollywood Wax Museum, the Mirror Maze, the Veterans Memorial Museum, or the Toy Museum.
