Silver Dollar City rides are unique in that they combine plenty of exciting, adrenaline-pumping action with historical and rural themes. One such example is the Giant Swing, where guests burst out of a traditionally-styled red barn, swinging rapidly on two pendulum arms. Many of the Silver Dollar City roller coasters are similarly themed, with the Silver Dollar theme park claiming that "everybody's got a bit of farmer in them." The indoor coaster Fire in the Hole takes you through a replica of an 1800s town that has caught on fire, with exciting drops and thrills.
Other Silver Dollar City roller coasters, however, are thoroughly modern, using state-of-the-art roller coaster technology. The PowderKeg launches you from 0 to 53 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds with its compressed air-launch technology, while "Wildfire" sends you on speeding loops and spirals.
Even for those who don't desire such thrills, there are many interesting Silver Dollar City rides. The Grand Exposition section of the theme park features ten family-friendly rides, with a carousel, tea cups, and other favorites. The Frisco Sing-along Steam Train is a quaint attraction that takes you through the beauty of the Ozark Mountains, while the Flooded Mine is an exciting boat ride for all ages. Other attractions include a gigantic treehouse where children can play, and replicas of a historical school house and church.
To fully enjoy the Silver Dollar City rides, visitors may want to consider buying the Trailblazer Pass, a unique package that allows patrons to skip the line on six rides in the park. While it does cost $20, the pass can help you to save time, allowing you to enjoy as many rides as possible in your day. The Trailblazer Pass is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
