I hate to correct such a great report, but the railway takes you up from Marvel Cave. At least it did when I went. ;)

I didn't realize the seats on the big S&S swings were the same as those on Powder Keg. Neat design, yes, I don't think you really gain anything in terms of safety with all of those extra moving parts and the electronics that monitor them.

That looks like a great park, it almost looks like dollywood. Is the "fire in the hole" ride the same as the dollywood version?

This a great park!

It is one of my favorite parks because how nicely themed and how kind the staff is (they seem to never leave character.)

I whent there before power keg was added though. But I got my grandma on Wildfire.

Fire In The Hole is nearly identical to Blazing Furry at Dollywood.
Silver Dollar City is one of my favorite parks. What they lack in rides, they more than make up for in atmosphere and just being a pleasant place to visit.

I think the S&S restraints are cool because of the way they slide into position for a custom fit instead of just lowering down at an angle which can greatly vary how the restraint restrains you depending on body shape/size.

it almost looks like dollywood.

I have a feeling that's not a coincidence, lol.

I made my first visit to Silver Dollar City in early June on a trip that also included a return to Worlds of Fun and first visits to Celebration City and Magic Springs. I spent 1.5 days there and felt like I'd had nowhere near enough time to see and do everything. It immediately became another one of those "out-of-the-way" parks like Silverwood or Knoebels that I would not hesitate to make an effort to return to.
