"So Many fun Festivals!"
February 2020
We visited as a family for the holiday lights festival, and it was such a wonderful time to visit. Great shows (love the living nativity), magical lights and fun parades. We visited again last year for the pumpkin fest and although it was fun too, the crowds were terrible. We would definitely visit again for the holiday lights festival!!

Tip: There is so much to do that it's worth getting the two day pass. Definitely visit Marvel Cave.

"Silver Dollar City in Lights"
December 2019
This is the first time visiting Silver Dollar City during the Christmas season. I had always heard how beautiful the lights were. Well, it didn’t disappoint. The lights were absolutely beautiful and more than I anticipated and the huge tree coming into the park was phenomenal. The shows that were put on at different times throughout the day were also great. Very talented people. The park also shares the true meaning of Christmas that being the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. If you want to see beautiful lights and wonderful shows and know the true meaning of Christmas put this on your bucket list. You will not be disappointed. Merry Christmas!

"Wonderful place!!!!!"
December 2019
We live out of state and this is the second year we came back twice. A seasons pass is the way to go as you get other discounts also. We come to Branson two weeks in a year when we get a pass and go twice during each week. The shops, crafts, music, and food are great! We intend to come back again!

Tip: A lot of hilly walking, the lines for some of the shows are quite long.

SDC, is a must when visiting Branson, especially at Christmas. The park atmosphere with the crisp air and the 6.5 million lights is beautiful, pictures do not do it justice. My teenage boys love the roller coasters but mostly we appreciate the way the park shares the love of Jesus. Please visit this place, if you haven’t. You will not be sorry! Merry Christmas.

"Beautiful at Christmas!"
December 2019
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!!

"Covid visit!"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed June 27, 2020 NEW
I’ve been to SDC many times. I understand the Covid response but each ride was maintained differently. Slow lines on some with over done sanitation while other rides it was minimal. I would just avoid the park for that price until it’s back to full operation. Bigger crowds. Full trains run smoother. Great park but a headache right now.

"Don’t go during pandemic."
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed June 27, 2020 NEW
We went thinking that once we got into the park itself masks wouldn’t be required because it was SO HOT. My six year old could not breathe it was so hot and anytime we went to sit and pull down our masks to be able to breathe we would have two or three workers pass by and tell us we have to put them on. Meanwhile there was people walking around without masks at all so it was very aggravating. We spent almost $300 and only stayed for two hours.

"Disappointed overall"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed June 27, 2020 NEW
Went with friends. It’s the first place I have been where mask are required to be worn. If Covid is that serious amusement parks should not be opening at all. Not a pleasant experience when it is a hot day. Many of the attractions were closed I assume due to Covid but the price we paid was not discounted. I personally would not likely ever go out of my way to visit again from Ohio.
