The Ozarks is a weird mashup of Western, Southern, and Midwestern, and I think SDC's food really reflects that well.

Looking forward to the next update!


Yea, I agree.

The food was not "bad", we were just expecting food that was on par with Dollywoods. More on the food coming up.

Nice pictures of my home park. It is strange that they were running only one train on the coasters. When I last went (last Thursday) they were running two trains on Outlaw Run, two trains on Wildfire, one train on Thunderation (the other train was on the transfer track and there were guys working on it), and Powder Keg was running all three trains. Did you ride anything else in the Grand Exposition other than the kiddie coaster? I can never pass up the Royal Tea Party, Electro Spin, or Magnificent Wave Carousel if I'm ever in that corner of the park. Oh, and did you check out Fireman's Landing? That area has one of the most powerful S&S Double Shots.

Yea, I took the kids on a few rides in that area. Off the top of my head, I believe I took them on the teacups and the pirate boats.

I'll have a few pictures of them coming up.

I'm so glad you are enjoying one of my home parks! I look forward to the rest of your pictures!

According to RCDB, S&S has 34 roller coasters.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

No shame in wearing a fanny pack! This year, I've been wearing a fanny pack to parks (I put my car keys and portable charger in it, as well as any spare change I get).
Top 10 steel: Millennium Force, Maverick, Incredible Hulk, Banshee, Diamondback, Raptor, Top Thrill Dragster, Valravn, GateKeeper, Kraken
Top 10 wood: Mystic Timbers, Shivering Timbers, Beast, Racer (KI), Viper, American Eagle, Woodstock Express, Mean Streak (RIP), Wolverine Wildcat, Blue Streak (CP)

Hey now....my fanny pack has saved many items from getting lost. Everybody is always asking me to hold onto there items in my pack. I'm married and have 3 kids, so not exactly cruising for chicks...lol

Anyways, onto the rest of our silver dollar city pictures.
20170709_180421.jpg
Let's start out this update with my new #1 coaster
20170710_134616.jpg
It kicked serious A$$ from beginning to end.
20170710_134610.jpg
Just take it in....

Station shot. My kind of line.
20170709_182056.jpg
Killer ride

Station decor

Entrance to bliss
20170710_143208.jpg
The grand exposition area has lots of rides for the kids and adults to ride together
20170710_143210.jpg
Where have I seen this ride before?
20170710_171147.jpg
The kids got to milk a cow
20170710_114909.jpg
Walking up and down the hills of the park all day, we worked up quite an appetite. We decided on the mine restaurant. It's an all you can eat buffet, but it's located in a mine.
20170710_115019.jpg
This was a really cool restaurant
20170710_122134.jpg
The food was o-k.
20170710_102602.jpg
We made sure to save room for the famous cinniman bread. As you can see, I couldn't even get a picture of it before it got destroyed
20170710_164245.jpg
I really wanted to try one of these, but was so full that it will have to wait till next trip.
20170710_104010.jpg
Our last coaster was thunderstorm. It's a mine train coaster. A rather fun one at that.
20170710_104241.jpg
This is whay happens when you only run 1 train.
20170710_105156.jpg
20170710_104047.jpg
At the exit of thunderation, they had this posted on the fence. So of course I had to look.
20170710_104032.jpg
I spy a new coaster station
20170710_104050.jpg
There was lots of work going on.
20170710_104041.jpg
20170710_104246.jpg
One last look at the new coaster station
20170709_183705.jpg
If you want to cool down, the American plunge was the place to be.
20170710_181840.jpg
The kids had a blast in the ball pit area.
20170710_132203.jpg
The train ride takes you around the park and even gets held up along the way.
20170710_181714.jpg
A few more random shots from around the park.
20170710_103549.jpg
Family fun
20170709_161347.jpg
20170709_181709.jpg
That's it from silver dollar city. The next update will be from worlds of fun.

Yea, it was odd. Do they typically only run 1 train or was it just a weird day?

They only run one train on days that it is *dead.* Most of the time they run two trains. And sometimes if it gets more crowded during the day they will add a second train to the track.
