"Beautiful at Christmas!"
December 2019 NEW
We visited during a holiday weekend. The park was very busy, but everything flowed smoothly and lines for rides moved at a decent pace. The lights were beautiful!!! Some of the staff could definitely be more cordial. They can be very rude at times! If you spend a full day in the park, be prepared to pay for over-priced park food/drinks. We bought two pizzas and drinks and spent over $80! Overall, it's a great time and definitely worth a visit!!

Was the busy day to go but when we FINALLY got in the lights and tree were beautiful. The rides were good. The grandkids loved it!! They were closed the next day so we couldn’t go back and enjoy it more with fewer people. Expensive for the little time we were there but glad for the experience.

"All the Feels...of Christmas"
November 2019 NEW
We had been to silverdollarcity before and it was on my bucket list to travel there during the Lights Festival. From the moment we entered the park we or enveloped in the holiday season. It seems almost everyone we experienced in the park were in the holiday spirit wishing each other a Merry Christmas. While taking in the lights upon entry we were welcomed by carolers singing, the wonderful Aromas from the bakery, and the clean and very tidy Park . We did enjoy one of their fabulous cinnamon rolls! Even though the parking lot was quite full we found the ride lines to be not too long and the park handle the crowd very well. The shows were phenomenal. I've been to some Broadway Productions of A Christmas Carol and I felt the production we saw was right up there and top-notch the traveling Broadway shows. My children thoroughly enjoyed the shows the site's and the parade. I especially enjoyed Christmas music being played over the speakers while waiting in line for rides. Most of all I love how silverdollarcity it's just a very patriotic place always taking the time to honor veterans and unapologetically Christian. Jesus is the reason for the season and it was very apparent while you were exploring the park at this time of year! Would highly recommend traveling there during the holiday season as a way to kick off Christmas!

"Nice but to crowded"
November 2019 NEW
We went Nov. 8-10. Going in after 7 PM did not count as one of our days. WE knew going over Veteran's Day weekend there would be big crowds but were not prepared for how big they were. Great unseasonably warm weather was wonderful. Had to wait in line over an hour for the shows. Love the train ride and Christmas story after dark. Did not do the rides. I am not a roller coaster person but my son loved them. I prefer to watch the craftsman work and listen to their talk of what they are doing. The lunch buffet was great but like all the food in the park was over priced

"Silver Dollar City"
November 2019 NEW
Our printed tickets would not scan at park entry, I have a good/ clear printer, took about 15 minutes to get new entry tickets printed out for the 8 of us. But the two day entry costs were less than buying direct from the park. The park was greT but badly over crowded on Sat night, not a good time to go!

Reviewed December 09, 2019 NEW
Silver Dollar City is a spectacular park with something for everyone. It’s a wonderful visit any time of year, but for us, the Christmas season is by far the best. They entire park is lit with Christmas lights (I believe they boast 6.5 million lights)!! Be sure and stay until after sunset so that you don’t miss the parade and the decor in all it’s splendor. If the weather is good, all rides and rollercoasters are still running. Be sure to ride “Thunderation”, “Powder keg” and the new “Time Traveler”. All are fantastic rollercoasters, but not for the faint at heart. The musical performances that are provided with the ticket price are first class. Be sure to get in line for them at least 30 minutes prior to the showtime of your choice. At a non-discounted ticket price of just over $76 per adult, it isn’t an inexpensive park to visit, but so worth it. Be sure to make it a full day to take it all in and get your moneys worth from your visit!

I was actually disappointed a little. Not clear on where to go to check in. The parade was like 2 minutes long. Not sure if I’d spend that much money to go back. Not sure what all the hype was about.

Christmas visit was great. We lucked out and went on a beautiful day. The kids enjoyed the day and we all loved it got dark and all the Christmas lights came on. Absolutly beautiful! The parade was cute, but the winner was the new 8 story Christmas tree. It lit up and had graphics running all through it. We could have watched it for hours! I'm a little old for the rides but staying for the lights was worth it!!
