Silver Dollar City has announced that they are investing 27 million dollars on two new attractions for the 2020 season. These are Mystic River Falls, a white water rapids ride that claims to be the tallest in the western hemisphere, and Rivertown Smokehouse, a new eatery.
Mystic River Falls is a co-development between Silver Dollar City and R.E.S. The rapids ride takes the place of Lost River of the Ozarks and will become the anchor of a new section of the park dubbed Rivertown. The ride will feature 2,100 feet of river channel, 18 8-person rafts that together will form a 5 1/2 minute ride experience including 180 feet of it on an elevated river channel.
The Rivertown Smokehouse will be a new eatery whose menu I am sure we will hear more about at a future date. The location will provide covered seating as well as many opportunities to watch riders on Mystic River Falls.
