(Branson, Mo., 5/5/23) Silver Dollar City is named #1 Theme Park in America by USA TODAY’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards, following four weeks of voting by loyal fans of the 1880s theme park.
In total, Silver Dollar City Attractions is awarded three amusement-related awards in this nationwide poll of USA TODAY readers. Two additional awards placed North America’s fastest, steepest and tallest spinning coaster, Time Traveler, in the Top 20 Best Roller Coaster poll and tropical-themed water park White Water as a Top 20 Water Park in the U.S.
“Our guests come from all over the USA. We recognize they could visit other states, other regions and other theme parks, but they have chosen to not only visit us, but to also vote for us,” said Brad Thomas, President of Silver Dollar City Attractions. “Our citizens strive every day to create unique and fun adventures and experiences for each guest. We want to provide the entire family an escape from the noise of their daily routines and the opportunity to grow closer together as they experience our rides, our shows, our festivals, our attractions and our incredible food.”
Nestled in the Ozark Mountains, the internationally-awarded theme park was nominated by a panel of amusement and theme park experts consisting of USA TODAY editors, 10Best.com editors and additional high-profile influencers from across the country.
Silver Dollar City kicks off the all-new Ozark Mountain Summer Celebration June 3 and hosts family-friendly festivals throughout the year, including a scare-free Harvest Festival with tens of thousands of illuminated pumpkins spanning the streets of the park during the Pumpkins In The City evening event and 5-time USA TODAY 10Best “Best Theme Park Holiday Event” An Old Time Christmas, with over 6.5 million LED lights lining every building of the theme park.Full schedule and general information: www.silverdollarcity.com or
