"Great getaway!"
October 2019 NEW
We spent a weekend in Branson during the Pumpkin Nights/Harvest Festival and had an absolute blast. We had some rain hit midway through our day, but took cover and rode Fire in the Hole until it passed. The crews were quick to get the rides up and running, and we closed the park down. Pumpkin Nights were incredible, and the kids loved it.

Tip: Bring a rain poncho just in case it's in the forecast, and make sure to try the chicken and waffles!

"Weekend Getaway"
October 2019 NEW
We truly enjoyed our experience of Silver Dollar City. The Harvest Festival/Pumpkin Nights did not let down. The fall decor was beautiful and the carved pumpkins at night was awesome! I highly recommend the apple dumplings, smothered in caramel sauce, served with cinnamon ice cream. Delish!! The shows we watched were great, too! Marvel Cave is always neat to walk through. The park was clean and the crafters/workers were all very welcoming. Looking forward to SDC during Christmas!! We didn't get to ride on the train, but usually enjoy that as well.

"A Wonderful Fall Getaway"
October 2019 NEW
We spent a couple of days at Silver Dollar City during their Fall Crafts Days/Pumpkin Nights (during the weekdays). It was such a great getaway! The kids are in school and the temps are cooler...what a great time to spend the day listening to great music, sitting in on great shows, and riding EVERYTHING you want to ride with NO lines! We rode every roller coaster multiple times...sometimes we were the only people on the whole coaster! We took the nighttime lantern tour of Marvel Cave. There were only 4 of us and it was AMAZING! Touring this cave with only a lantern to to show the way! It was super-cool!

Tip: Go during the weekdays (not weekend). Be sure to be there at night when the pumkins are glowing! They have over 10,000 carved pumpkins lining the walkways for you to enjoy!

"Too Expoensive"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed October 13, 2019 NEW
We have been coming to Silver Dollar City every year for at least the past 30 years. We decided to stop the tradition this yaer due to the increase in admission pricing. We feel $71 for a 1 day admission is just too expensive. We know the Season Pass offers a better deal but we live too far away to visit more than one time a year. We enjoyed our many past visits and the memories but we will not be coming back. We still enjoyed our trip to Branson even though we did not gio the Silver Dollar City.

"Great park!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 12, 2019 NEW
We've bought season passes to SDC for the last five years! Love all the festivals at the park. My husband rides the roller coasters while I sit and wait but I'll ride the tamer rides! The food is wonderful although the prices are a bit high and they won't let you bring anything into the park so you have to eat there or leave and come back. The hills are a little hard to navigate sometimes but if you choose the right route you won't be too warn out!

I feel as though I paid an expensive entry fee so I could go in and spend more money. Minimal rides even when all rides are open. We've been to many, many theme parks all over the US and even in Canada and this was by far the worst.

"Fun Pumpkin Fest"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 12, 2019 NEW
We are season ticket holders and were excited to visit during the first year Pumpkin Fest. We were not disappointed. Great decorations especially at night. Enjoyable new crafts and artisans. Kids would enjoy the dance party. Not as beautiful as Christmas but still fun. Yummy new foods and drinks. Only downfall is the crowds. Friday night wasn't too bad, but Saturday was very crowded. Lots of long lines for everything all day, food,rides, and parking.
