Labor Day Getaway

School is back in session, which means that summer vacation has officially come to an end. But was anyone really ready to see it go? We at Silver Dollar City Attractions sure weren't ready for summer to end, which is why we've got a full weekend of activities planned for Labor Day Weekend.

Whether you're looking for rides, relaxing, shows or concerts, you'll find it all at Silver Dollar City, White Water and the Showboat Branson Belle over the three-day weekend. Here are eight reasons you should plan to visit us between September 1-3, 2018, as we say goodbye to our summer season!

1. Extended Hours At Silver Dollar City

For the final time this season, Silver Dollar City will be open for more than 12 hours in a single day. In fact, we’ll be open from 9:30am to 10pm on both Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 1 & 2. It’s one last chance to enjoy the extended operating hours and ride all day and into the night on over 40 rides and attractions, from coasters and thrill rides to family adventures and water rides.

Silver Dollar City will also be open from 10am to 6pm on Labor Day — Monday, Sept. 3, giving guests a total of 33 hours of fun over the holiday weekend.

White Water will be open from 10am to 6pm on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. It’s your last chance to explore 13 acres of water rides and slides, from the thrilling Kalani Towers and Kapau Plummet to a 500,000-gallon wave pool and lazy river. Make plans to visit today — and don’t forget you can maximize your time in the park by upgrading your visit with a private cabana or Splash Pass.

3. Final Chance To Splash & Play

‍Can’t decide if you want to spend your day at Silver Dollar City or White Water? Why not enjoy both? Visiting both parks has never been easier thanks to our special Splash & Play ticket, which gives you unlimited access to both Silver Dollar City and White Water for any three days in a five-day span.

Now that White Water is closing for the season, this is your final weekend to utilize these two-park combo tickets. Priced at just $31/day for adults and $23/day for children, it’s the ultimate value for a Labor Day Weekend getaway.

4. Final Weekend Of Southern Gospel Picnic

‍Labor Day is not only the unofficial end of summer, it’s also the official end of one of Silver Dollar City’s biggest festivals of the year. The Southern Gospel Picnic (presented by Humana®) features soul-stirring performances from the most noteworthy names in the genre. Chart-topping and award-winning musicians from around the country flock to the park to be a part of Southern Gospel’s 12 Biggest Days and Nights, the last of which is Labor Day. Click here to see some of the artists scheduled to appear at the park that weekend. Remember: You can guarantee your seat to select Gospel concerts with a Show Lovers Pass!

5. Outdoor Concerts In Echo Hollow®

‍Outdoor concerts are a staple of summer — and Silver Dollar City will have three incredible shows in Echo Hollow® Amphitheatre over Labor Day Weekend.

Crowd favorites The Martins kick things off on Saturday night before the beloved husband-and-wife team of Jeff & Sheri Easter perform an inspirational show on Sunday. Then, industry icon Guy Penrod concludes the Southern Gospel Picnic with the most-awaited performance of the entire festival on Monday evening.

The 6pm concerts are the final three installments in the Southern Gospel Nights series, which features nightly concerts and events in Echo Hollow® Amphitheatre as part of the Southern Gospel Picnic. Click here to see the full list of shows.

Please note: Outdoor concerts are weather permitting.

6. Cruises On Table Rock Lake

‍Planning on celebrating Labor Day on the lake? It’s hard to beat spending time aboard the Showboat Branson Belle, which has a full lineup of cruises planned on Table Rock Lake. Our signature variety show featuring comedy, magic, dancing and the power of music from the 60s to today is scheduled for 4pm and 8pm on both Saturday and Sunday, along with a 4pm cruise on Labor Day.

As always, your Showboat Branson Belle ticket includes a three-course meal prepared in the ship’s galley and time on beautiful Table Rock Lake. For the best on-board experience, upgrade your ticket to Captain’s Club for a preferred boarding time and the chance to order off our premium dining menu.

7. Fireworks Finale On Sunday Night

The Showboat’s variety show is dazzling in itself, but the Sunday night performance will feature another intriguing element. Weather permitting, the 8pm cruise on September 2 will have an incredible vantage point for a fireworks display presented by Chateau on the Lake. For this voyage only, you can cruise, dine, be entertained AND enjoy a great fireworks display with a single ticket!

8. Final Weekend Of Southern Gospel Cruises

‍Labor Day Weekend isn’t just the end of the Southern Gospel Picnic, it’s also the last chance to enjoy Southern Gospel Music on the Showboat Branson Belle.

In lieu of our traditional variety show, our Noon cruises on Saturday and Sunday feature special performances from some of the biggest names in Southern Gospel. The chart-topping group Gold City will perform at Noon on Saturday, while Gospel Music Association Hall of Famer Tim Lovelace appears Sunday.
