Biggest Year of Entertainment, Opening March 13
Presenting its biggest and boldest year of entertainment in history, Silver Dollar City opens this week, March 13, for the 2019 season. Declaring 2019 as “The Year of Shows & Festivals,”the internationally-awarded, 1880s-style theme park presents an entire new slate of entertainment and festival adventures, beginning with Spring Ride Days, from March 13 to April 7, an event for families who want to thaw from winter during spring break at The City with over 40 rides and attractions.
Families can take on Time Traveler, the world’s fastest, steepest & tallest spinning coaster, or catch a wild ride through the Ozark Mountains at nearly 70 mph on Outlaw Run, the world’s only double-barrel-rolling wooden roller coaster and the Guinness World Records holder for 2015’s steepest drop on a wood coaster.In addition to the park’s five other coasters, families can also make memories at Fireman’s Landing with its 10 unique family attractions designed to serve as “training” for recruits seeking to become part of the Silver Dollar City fire brigade. Additional attractions include 10 family rides in the Grand Exposition, the high-flying Giant Swing, Frisco Silver Dollar Line Steam Train, Marvel Cave—the park’s original and nethermost attraction—and much more.
“Spring break is really the ideal time for families to experience the extensive lineup of attractions we have here at the park,” says Mike Brown, Director of Attractions. “Whether families are looking for top-speed, towering coasters or tranquil, peaceful rides through the hills, we have numerous options for the entire family. Ultimately, we strive to create memories worth repeating for families that choose to spend their time with us.”
There’s plenty of entertainment during Spring Ride Days, too, with award-winning Bluegrass and Gospel family The Petersens, Gospel group Spoken 4 Quartet and magician-comedian Chris Stanley performing throughout the event.
Silver Dollar City opens for the season March 13 with “The Year of Shows & Festivals,” including the new festival adventure Pumpkin Nights, with thousands of glowing pumpkins lining the City streets in the fall; an all-new summer mega production, Reuben’s Swashbuckling Adventure; and a new 8-story Christmas tree lighting up Town Square for An Old Time Christmas. Plus, celebrity concerts throughout the year, new show adventures during The Festival of Wonder and Star-Spangled Summer festival, and over 50 separate evening events in addition to the park’s new Echo Hollow show starting at park closing.
