I’ve had Silver Dollar City on my bucket list for two decades and I’m happy to say the 1880s Ozarks theme park didn’t disappoint after such a long wait and a seemingly endless buildup.

I’d been aware of the park since 2001 when the WildFire roller coaster by Switzerland-based ridemaker Bolliger & Mabillard debuted at the park. Silver Dollar City...
