BRANSON, Mo. – Silver Dollar City announces a record breaking year, with over 2.1 Million guests visiting the park in 2017.
The 1880’s-style theme park in Branson shares its 2017 attendance set a record for the highest attendance in the parks 58-year history, with some 42,000 people visiting SDC over the previous year.
Director of Publicity Lisa Rau says 2017’s growth in attendance can be attributed to a number of things, including the park’s new festivals and the Year of Food and Crafts:
Rau adds the growth of Christmas guests was spurred by the addition of Christmas In Midtown and being named number one in the USA Today 10 Best poll for Best Theme Park Holiday Event.
In 2017 Silver Dollar City also announced its new incoming attraction, the highly-anticipated $26 Million roller coaster; Time Traveler. SDC will open for its 2018 season on March 14th.
