After a very late snow on May 3, we are ready for warm weather to hit! Well the sun is finally shining and we couldn’t be happier because many of our very favorite Branson spots are outdoors – Shepherd of the Hills, Ride the Ducks, the Branson Landing, and more! So, come on down to Branson to embrace the gorgeous weather before it’s way too hot!
Perhaps everyone’s favorite outdoor destination in Branson, Silver Dollar City, is the place to be when the sun is shining! The park features a brand new roller coaster, Outlaw Run, which is the second fastest wood coaster in the world, the only wood coaster to twist upside down three times, and the world’s steepest wood coaster with a drop of 162 feet at 81 degrees. If hearing about that roller coaster threatens the loss of your lunch, stick to some of the more tame rides such as Thunderation, Lost River of the Ozarks, The Flooded Mine, and many more.
Even better than the rides, are the incredible festivals held in the park. The Bluegrass and BBQ Festival kicks off Thursday, May 9! Come hungry because you’ll have the chance to enjoy scrumptious BBQ from all over the country with more than 200 different sauces. You’ll have a hard time leaving without trying it all! As you wander throughout the park, you’ll also have the chance to hear amazing bluegrass bands including IIIrd Generation Bluegrass, The Grascals, The Boxcars, Doyle Lawson & Quiksilver, The Gibson Brothers, and many more. The festival lasts until Monday, May 27.
Before you leave, make a stop at all the craftsmen demonstrations. You’ll have the chance to see a Master Blacksmith send sparks flying, watch a Glass Cutter etch gorgeous art on glass, and drool as you watch Candymakers cook up fresh peanut brittle. All of this and much more awaits at Silver Dollar City! Visit our website for more information about rides, food, festivals, and much more.
