ills! SILVER DOLLAR CITY Silver Dollar City Amusement Park is located in Branson, Missouri, and is home to some of the most amazing attrac- tions in the Midwest that a park can offer. The park was evolved around the Marvel Cave, a natural wonder of the area. For over 50 years, the Marvel Cave entrance oper- ated strictly for the cave features and tours/sightseeing alone. Today, the park features 8 different world-class fes- tivals, American craftsmen demonstrations, and plenty of rides and other attractions, with the Marvel Cave now only being one of those. When attending with children, choose one of the 10 family adventures inside Firemen’s Landing, or try your luck on the “world’s most daring wood coaster,” the Outlaw Run. New for 2017, experience the Year of Food and Crafts, which is a year-long celebration featuring over 200 new food items that have been added to the menus, along with a variety of different crafts to view and try, such as hand soap making and glassblowing/molding. Join in the Silver Dollar City Food Days from May 30 th – June 9 th , and July 31 st – August 20 th . During these times, the chefs at Silver Dollar City will be putting innovative spins on all your fa- vorite carnival and amusement park classics, like funnel cakes and kettle corn!
