Finally we are here!
Silver Dollar City
was one of the park that I dreamed to go when I was younger. With Powder Keg’s opening, I started to search for information about the park but I can find very little things… Now that Outlaw Run
is coming and people talked about how awesome their food
are on the board, Silver Dollar City became my most anticipated park on the trip.
After the trip, I can say SDC definitely gave me the best days of my life! This is my favorite park (probably my favorite place in this planet) with my NO.1 coaster Outlaw Run and my 3rd favorite steel coaster Powder Keg. Plus the coolest gift I’ve ever gotten--a piece of wood from Outlaw Run with the signature of all the amazing people who made this beautiful wonderland
! First time in my life, I started to focus on the things except for thrill rides. Just enjoying the atmosphere and trying out the delicious food made by their friendly employees, they made a feeling of being at home! I’ve seen quite a lot of families with kids around 3 years old and an aged around 80 years old just walking around the park and having a great time.
Like how I posted on the trip board, I thought Six Flags Magic Mountain is a world class park before and I did not change my mind until I step into the park (Don’t judge me if you are a SFMM fan…
) Everything about the park completely change my taste of amusement parks! The park has a wonderful setting with shade everywhere and there are NO BUGS
! All their big rides are very outstanding and well-themed; their cave tour is very different from the Chinese ones and again, they have awesome food!!!
During the first night at the park, I actually spent my whole night on
. Before the ERT session, I spend an hour waiting for the ride to explore the detailed theme on the queue area and it was one of the few lines that I enjoy waiting for because you can HEAR how awesome the coaster would be while reading those posters and lines on the wall, an hour pass quickly.
My first ride was in the last row of the train. After the first ride, all I said was OMG IT WAS AWESOME! Started from the beautiful sound of the chain lift
to the amazing ending
of the ride, EVERY second of the ride was enjoyable and full of surprise
! The twist on the way down from the 153degrees turn had some nice ejector
and all the elements on the ride that doesn’t look real have a lot of fun. To me, the ride is not an intense type like Maverick (Still need to try SkyRush and i305 in the future) but a ride full of surprise and enjoyment. I love intense but this one is definitely a winner
. After the ride, I went to the souvenir shop…Marcel you know what I mean
ERT was a lot of fun and I got 4 rides in total (One train operation) but the four rides were much better than another woodie
at Wisconsin which I nearly killed myself on
. We walked through the empty park at 11:00pm which was another amazing experience especially when it’s Silver Dollar City!
More pictures coming up soon!
