With 2020 capping off their $100-million-dollar-decade, Silver Dollar City is preparing for their 2020 season and the 60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee.
The 1880s-style theme park in Branson, Mo. is celebrating six decades of entertaining guests with an extensive list of offerings for 2020.
This year’s slate includes a new area of a town to explore, a new BBQ restaurant, and a water adventure ride designed to honor the park’s on-site Marvel Cave. In addition, Silver Dollar City is adding big names in entertainment, new food offerings, and more.
“We continuously listen to our guests. Our guests let us know what they love and what they do not like. Our plans for new attractions, shows and festivals continue to be based on guest research,” said Brad Thomas, president of Silver Dollar City Attractions. “During this last decade, we presented many fun and exciting additions. We anticipate this next decade will be even more exciting with even larger and bolder announcements and additions.”
