8 Things You Can Do Using The Silver Dollar City App

Whether you’re looking for directions, menus or general park information, our mobile app is the ultimate concierge and tour guide. Best of all, it’s free to download from the App Store and Google Play!

Here are eight of our favorite things to do using the Silver Dollar City mobile app.

Important: The latest version of the app was released in mid-March. Be sure to download the most recent update from the App Store or Google Play to ensure you have all of these great features!

1. Get Directions Through The Park

Do you get lost trying to find Lost River of the Ozarks? Traveled to Fireman’s Landing®, but landed somewhere else? We’ve got great news: Our GPS-enabled interactive map makes it easier than ever for you to quickly get where you want to go. Whether you’re looking for lunch, thrills or a restroom, just tap on your destination, tap “Get Directions” and follow the blue line to your next adventure.

Important: To enable this feature, you must be on park and enable Location Services on your device. This will allow us to provide you with the most optimal path from your location to your destination.

2. View Ride Wait Times

The Silver Dollar City app is the ONLY PLACE to view estimated wait times for Silver Dollar City’s rides and attractions, from our award-winning roller coasters to our family-friendly adventures. This information is updated in real-time and automatically refreshes every 5-7 minutes. You can find them by tapping “Rides & Wait Times” or by looking at the orange pins on the interactive park map.

Bonus: You can even filter by wait times. Tap “Explore Park Map” from the home screen and look for “Maximum Wait Time” underneath “Rides & Attractions.” You can then set the maximum amount of time you’re willing to wait, and the app will only display attractions that currently meet your criteria.

3. See Show Schedules

With more than 150 visiting performers coming to Silver Dollar City in 2018, we’ve got some amazing entertainment options all season long. By tapping “Show Schedules” from the app home screen, you can view a chronological list of every show that will be appearing on park on a given day. You’ll also be able to see the show’s location and length, and get directions if you’re on the park.

Plan Ahead: Not only can you view today’s show times, but you can view schedules for future dates as well! The app will let you scroll up to three months in advance. So if it’s April 1, you can scroll through April, May, June & July. Upcoming schedules are added as soon as they are available!

4. Plan Your Visit With My Lists

See something you like while you’re browsing through the app? Add it to a list! This function works just like bookmarking a webpage, allowing you to easily keep tabs on everything you’re interested in experiencing during your visit. It’s fully customizable and you can get as creative as you want.

Whether it’s “Restaurants I Want To Try,” “My Favorite Rides” or “Things To Do With Aunt Irma,” you can create all kinds of lists to help you have the ultimate day on park. You can even cross items off your list once you’ve experienced them, so you can make sure you visit all of your hot spots!

Get Started: Tap “My Lists” from the home screen to create your first list. Add to lists by tapping the star icons located on each attraction!

5. Browse Our Interactive Park Map

Where’s the nearest restroom? Where can I find a locker? Where’s Lost & Found?

Our interactive park map doesn’t just include the over 40 thrilling rides and attractions, 18 award-winning restaurants and 60 unique shops that call Silver Dollar City home. It shows important Guest Service locations like lockers, restrooms, lost & found, ATMs and First Aid.

Remember: If you’re on park with Location Services enabled, you’ll be able to see yourself on the map. It’s an easy way for you to find where you’re located and see all the fun things to do nearby.

6. Find Meals For Your Entire Party

Mom wants a burger. Dad wants a turkey leg. The kids want chicken. How can you satisfy everyone’s taste buds? Easy! Just use the built-in filtering function to find the restaurants that work for you.

From the park map screen, tap “Filter” and then locate “Dining Types.” You’ll be able to select exactly what types of food you’re interested in. The app will only show the restaurants that have at least one of the foods you want to try — in this case, those with burgers OR turkey legs OR chicken.

Explore More: Want to see the full menus of a particular restaurant or concession stand? Tap on the pin to view the restaurant’s name, then tap on the name to view all of the delicious items available!

7. Get Details About Rides & Attractions

The Silver Dollar City app features descriptions, photos and important information for every one of our thrilling rides and attractions, including accessibility information and height requirements. Just tap on the attraction’s name and you’ll find the information you need to help you plan your visit.

Important Information: Traveling withn small children? Visit each attraction’s page for specific details about that ride’s height requirements, including the minimum height needed for a rider to participate with a supervising companion. This will help you locate rides appropriate for your child.

8. Get Alerts & Special Offers
