We start with a prediction. The readers of USA Today will soon confirm what we in the Midwest already know - that Branson's Silver Dollar City's "Old Time Christmas" is the Best Theme Park Holiday Event in America.
Missouri is fortunate to have some classic wooden roller coasters. No offense intended to the newer metal structures, but I'm an old-school wooden coaster fan. Missouri has two of the best in Outlaw Run and The Screamin' Eagle, but which is better?
I remember hearing that Silver Dollar City would be adding a new water ride this year. It seemed like it might be a knock-off of Thunder River at Six Flags. Now that I've seen a new point-of-view video from inside the ride, I know that perception of mine was way off.
