I hope you guys have enjoyed part one of my Silver Dollar City report, because here comes part TWO of that amazing park! :-) I'm not responsible for any side effects that may occur. Those can be getting EXTREMELY hungry or wanting to ride GOOD coasters, so please prepare yourself for not freaking out :P :D

Since we had night ERT on Outlaw Run the last night, it was time to do some backstage tours the next day! It was raining and raining and raining but we didn't mind! We had our NICE TPR ponchos and SDC gave some of us free ponchos, too! We were prepared to do some coastering in the rain! I mean, we get soaked on water rides, so there shouldn't be a problem in getting wet during bad weather days! But not only gave us the park those AWESOME perks, nope, they even prepared an AMAZING breakfast for us! Yup, getting ready for a VERY long day! (The park was opened until MIDNIGHT and the weather forecast promised NICE weather! Amazing, isn't it?)

After some very sweet breakfast, we went to Outlaw Run, because Silver Dollar City wanted us to sign the track! That was such a wonderful surprise and I still can't believe that our names are on that track right now, I mean WHEN do you get the chance to sign a roller coaster with YOUR name? It's really not often!!! It's very unique and I think a lot of coaster fans are jealous. Thank you very much SDC! :)

The Silver Dollar City awesomeness isn't over yet, guys! That was just the beginning! After having signed Outlaw Run it was time for a backstage tour at...Fire in the hole! :) That was great, too! Looking behind the scenes of such a nostalgic ride was VERY interesting. They told us a lot about the ride and its maintenance issues etc! Very, very interesting!

So, after getting all those information, we were now prepared to get on the rides! We had time to explore the park now! My buddies and me wanted to take it easy and EXPLORE the park by walking around, riding coasters and EATING! We ate SO much stuff there! It was a VERY VERY GOOD time there! We had to stop everywhere because it smelled SO good! You have no other option but trying all the food! :D

Since the cave was partly flooded because of the heavy rain last night, we only had the chance to see a part of the cave! It would have been interesting to see all the other parts as well but SDC had a lot of other things to explore! So, no problem at all!

The park prepared a lunch buffet for us, so we had to eat again! As I already said, this park is very food orientated! :D :D :D During lunch we thanked the park for welcoming us did some nice little games where you could win some pieces of Outlaw Run's track! ( Not of the real track, but wooden pieces that were used to build the track :P) :)

After that amazing lunch program, we had some more time to explore the park and thanks to our punching passes (Silver Dollar City's fast passes), we were able to get some rides on all the coasters and flat rides! I'm pretty sure I forgot a LOT of other stuff we did there, but I hope the following photos will help you to get an impression of our FANTASTIC day at Silver Dollar City! This park ROCKS and I'm totally ready to come back, no matter if there is anything new or not! Thank you very much, guys!

By the way: I saved the best for the last! Some of you might be wondering: Did they eat the cinnamon bread? YES, we did! And it was AMAZING! And now, let the photos rock!
Wait...those people look like ghosts! Where is the devil?
The devil has to be somewhere there! But we're not on our way to hell but on our way to coaster heaven, because...
...there is an RMC track!
More RMC awesomeness!
OMG! A crazy German coaster geek just signed Outlaw Run!
I'm ready for some coaster nerd shots!
Laina listening to some ''Fire in the Hole'' backstage information!
Wheels! Wheels! Wheels! Can I have one?...
...NO! The only thing you get is some AIR! :)
Nerd shot!
More nerd shots!
Wait, there's someone new! I think it's the guy smiling to me! It's Big Mike!
Big Mike joined us for some days on the Texas/Midwest trip. Nice to meet you!
Some people should use a lockout station as well!
Looks like electricity!
It's time to ride!
Wildfire is the perfect location to take some...
IMG_6440.jpg photos! Love is in the air! Lifetime friends!
All my TPR buddies! TPR gave me some wonderful people and...
Don't eat it! You will get diabetes! It's the WORLD famous CINNAMON BREAD! YUMMY!
TPR members looking for more food...Where is the next food stand?
After all that food we should continue riding! All the teachers having a teacup party!
On our way to the next ride: ''OMG guys! It smells SO good! Let's check it out!''
We found some OREO funnel cake!
Roxanne found another funnel cake and the others found...
...more food...and...
...more food...
...and even MORE food!
Together we did our own Silver Dollar City buffet!
Ok guys! We have to stop eating for a little bit. Let's do the cave tour! It will help us losing weight!
It will help us MORE than only losing weight! :D Look at all the stairs!
I think the sun tells us: IT'S TIME FOR LUNCH GUYS!
Our AWESOME Silver Dollar City PRIVATE buffet!
Yummy! Yummy!
It's time to stomach all the food! Riding coasters is the best medicine!
TPR members taking over the Kiddy Coaster!
Sorry guys! Riding two coasters made me hungry!
Passing all those food stands made the others hungry as well!
That's why we bought all those different kinds of jerky!
But the smell wants me to run to get some food!
Roxanne! Stop touching Santa Claus' balls!
Look! That's the way it is allowed to touch him!
Yes! We did some coastering as well :)
Beautiful sundown! This reminds me of something, because a sundown usually means...
...DINNER TIME! Stop eating the bread dummy, Marcel!
Last photo of the day! A GIANT cookie!

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

Well, that just killed my appetite for a lousy microwave dinner at work tonight. Apologies to our electronics staff for attempting to reach through my computer screen and pull out the cinnamon bread and double-fried chicken.

We missed the Oreo funnel cake too!

I think our group spent more time eating than riding at SDC. There is just somuch food that was all so good!

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

Cheese-covered chips, those 2 kebabs on the grill, OREO funnel cake (!), 35% off on custom skillets, private TPR buffet....mmmmm.... Silver Dollar City knows how to do it right.

Your food tour coverage I believe, equals the rest of your trip report, lol!
Great start, and looking forward to more (food).
Talk is Cheap :idea: Action is Pricele$$
