Past rides at Silver Dollar City
« on: June 19, 2020, 11:02:26 AM »
Hey guys, I am currently doing a little personal project about Silver Dollar City's history. Part of it is listing/going over all the old rides and play areas at the park that no longer exist. So far I have,

- Sam's Minin Shack
- Herman The Hermit's Tree Top House
- Jim Owen's Float Trip
- Rube Dugan's Diving Bell
- Huck Finn's Hideaway
- Tom Sawyer's Landing
- Lost River of the Ozarks
- Waterworks/Wilderness Waterboggan
- Runaway Ore Cart
- Geyser Gulch
- Splash Harbor
- Buzz Saw Falls

Is there any that you guys remember but don't see here?

I’d suggest starting on the park’s Wikipedia page to see the ones you’ve missed and go from there

Yeah, that's where i got the rides i listed from haha. I just didn't know if there were any more that weren't put on the wikipedia page. Figured this is the place to ask if there were missing rides on that page.

"Gandy Dancer" I believe is what it was called. A self powered ore cart ride for the kids. The carts still exist around the park as theming props.

We have some old info on some of our legacy pages here:
http://sdcfans.com/sdc-wiki/sdc-history/attractions-removed-from-sdc/

Not sure what happened to the photos. I haven't been maintaining that part of the site in a few years.
