Breaking News: Silver Dollar City Nominated for Best Theme Park in America

March 25, 2024

Silver Dollar City is hoping for a repeat. The 1880s theme park in Branson is once again nominated for USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice award for “Best Theme Park” in America, a recognition it won previously in 2023. Fans can now vote at every day on every device through April 22.

Silver Dollar City was chosen as a nominee by a national panel of amusement and theme park experts who partnered with USA Today 10Best editors and additional influencers from across the country.

“So many wonderful things are happening at The City in 2024,” said Brad Thomas, President of Silver Dollar City Company. “From our new record-breaking indoor family coaster Fire In The Hole, a brand-new restaurant with Sadie’s Pretzel Cafe, amazing concerts — including Newsboys and Sara Evans — to the grand finale year of Street Fest. We’re so grateful to our Citizens and faithful fans from all over the country and hope they’ll vote for us in this national contest!”

In addition to Silver Dollar City’s nomination as Best Theme Park, the park’s Rivertown Ramblers show is nominated as “Best Theme Park Entertainment.” The show takes the audience on a joyful journey jam-packed with the sounds of Dixieland Jazz with a unique twist.

“These two nominations highlight the world-class experience guests will enjoy at Silver Dollar City,” Thomas said. “You’ll feel our Ozarks hospitality the moment you enter the park. From homestyle foods, demonstrating crafts colony and themed festivals throughout the year, a trip to The City is an unforgettable place with unforgettable people, to create memories worth repeating.”

On March 30, the park will celebrate the Grand Opening of Fire In The Hole — the largest indoor coaster in the Heartland — while the spring-time festival Street Fest celebrates its final year through the month of April. Additional award-winning festivals follow, including Summer Celebration, Harvest Festival and An Old Time Christmas.
