Being two hours away, we visit Silver Dollar City in the Missouri Ozarks several times each year. I've been to SDC and had a season pass for decades, and we never get tired of going to the park.
Through the years, I've come to appreciate many of the quaint features of the park. On our latest trip, I put in several steps while waiting for my son and his friend to get tired. In fact, I made a couple of complete laps around the park.
I have to thing of Silver Dollar City in different terms these days. No longer it is an authentic 1880s town: now, it is more like a what has happened when some people found an 1880s park and developed something on the property. It doesn't take me out of the present like it used to.
I blame it all on their newest coaster - Time Traveler. Now that they can travel outside of the 1880s, they can bring anything back to the 1880s.
