National Kids' Fest at Silver Dollar City in Branson
This summer, Silver Dollar City is hosting the largest Kids' Fest, yet. This is an easy task for them, especially now that they have opened "The Grand Exposition," which features 10 new family rides.
Magnificent Wave Carousel - A giant swing that provides a birds-eye view of the park. This ride sends you and your family 5 stories high, above the treetops for one of the most enjoyable rides in the park.
Mighty Galleon - This ride is much like the "Pirate Ship" often seen at county fairs, but better. This ship will soar nearly 60 feet into the air before plunging downward and back up the other side.
Electro Spin - This ride will spin you round and round, launching you 55 feet into the sky before spinning up another 55 feet in the opposite direction.
Grand Exposition Coaster - A great first rollercoaster for the young ones. It dips, turns, and flies along the track.
Racing Regatta - An octopus looking machine that turns and dips you and your family in your cozy little pods.
Elephant March - Flying elephants that twirl round and round, under your control.
Royal Tea Party - Much like the tea cups at the county fair, but you control which way you turn.
Wings of Wonder - Let your kids soar through the sky, riding atop an enormous butterfly.
The Ladybugs - A ground track ride on a ladybug, for the little ones.
