I grew up in central Oklahoma and heard of this fun place that some of my friends would visit during the summer; but, until December of 2015, and at 38, I had never been to Silver Dollar City. Iíve visited Branson many times for work events, with my wife shopping, and with our kids during scout days at the Dixie Stampede. My two oldest have been to SDC several times with friends on guest passes and we eventually purchased season tickets for them in recent years so they could go more often. I donít really like rides and in my ignorance, I never found much reason to go myself. That changed last year.

We had a family tradition of visiting the Festival of Lights in Chickasha during the holiday time period when living in Oklahoma. After moving to Northwest Arkansas, we head back to Oklahoma around Thanksgiving to spend time with family and weíd spend an evening in Chickasha walking the lights again as a family. A friend of mine shared that his family did something similar at SDC and heavily recommended that I check it out online. Instead of my typical cursory look at SDC, I spent more time looking around and found enough to intrigue and interest me beyond the rides.

My wife priced out tickets for our visit in December 2015 and showcased what the additional cost for 2016 season tickets would be. We visited the park that month and I had a blast! As a family, weíve been twice this year so far and Iíve even spent a Saturday there by myself. Iím pleased that thereís this golden nugget of a theme park close by and look for more adventures to come.

Welcome! I love it when new visitors to the park see it for so much more than the rides!

Hi I'm Kimber and my friend, dianagail, told me about this site! I probably won't post too much but I love SDC! I loved introducing my youngest to all the new rides and can't wait to take him to White Water in a few weeks!

Awesome.  Welcome Kimber.
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.
