SDCAre you headed to Silver Dollar City on Host Day? There is something for everyone!!

Are you into thrilling rides? There are many roller coasters to choose from. They have a great child's area as well.

Do you like water rides? If you wish you can cool yourself off with the Log Plunge and the Lost River - you will get wet!! But, remember, you are not allowed to wear bikini swim suits in the park. All swimwear must be covered with a shirt and shorts. Also a good idea to bring a zip lock bag to keep your phone, money, and personal items dry (we will have some on hand to distribute).

kids festAre Branson Shows more your style? There are several different shows to watch all day long. You can chose from a Zillion Bubbles to shoot-outs to singing, or just wander through the many shops.
