"Fun but disappointing"
October 2022
Although you pay full price, you do not get the same as before. Several places in the park were closed, including shops, shows, eateries, and rides. It's not the same SDC I use to know.

Tip: Handicap parking at SDC was free do not expect the same quality of shows.

"Very disappointed"
September 2022
I have visited Silver Dollar City throughout my life and the changes are not appealing. I loved the crafts and now it is just another amusement park. It is sad to see what was for adults and enjoyable for all become just another place of rides and kids.

Tip: Don't go there expecting to see the way things were it is just another place for kids and the adults are left out.
