Silver Dollar City Rides and Roller Coasters

If you have kids, then it's a good bet that you need some information about Silver Dollar City's rides and roller coasters! If it's been a few years since your last visit, you will be in for quite a shock. Each year, the park adds more rides, and the selection is better than ever!


Wildfire Roller Coaster at Silver Dollar City, Branson, Mo

Ok, lets start this off with a bang! Wildfire is a breathtaking, stomach dropping, multiple looping, high flying roller coaster that will test your thrill seeking limits.

The picture to the left is Wildfire in action. This roller coaster is nestled in the magestic Ozarks hillside. Stunning visuals with views that stretch for miles. This is one of those unforgettable rides that will leave you wanting to head straight back to the entrance to ride it again! If you have the nerves of course!

Wildfire reaches top speeds of 66 miles per hour, and midway through the adventure a camera will take your picture as you are shooting down a steep drop. The camera always seems to snap the picture when you have a look of terror (or smiles from ear to ear) on your face. You can purchase one of these photos as you leave the roller coaster. The pics are fairly affordable and they are a great way to capture those memories forever!

Powder Keg

Ever been shot out of a cannon? Ok, me neither, but I'm betting this ride will make you think that you have! Everyone gets in their seats, strap on their belts and await for this breathtaking ride to start.  This isn't a roller coaster that slowly escalates to the top of the hill. You go from 0 to 53 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds. Ok, maybe you didn't let that sink in, so I'll say it once more. You go from 0 to 53 MILES PER HOUR in in 2.8 seconds! Can you say "G-Force"?

Powder Keg reaches top speeds of 64 miles per hour and is wild experience for kids and adults alike. You must be at least 42 inches to ride the Powder Keg.

There are several other roller coasters that are targeted and big kids and adults, but I think you get the picture here.  Beautiful scenery, and breathtaking roller coaster fun at Silver Dollar City is the way to go!
