BRANSON, Missouri — With the opening next spring of the $8 million Fireman’s Landing, Silver Dollar City will substantially increase the park’s attractions, with 10 new family adventures, along with the first ever extended run show by the Harlem Globetrotters.
Fireman’s Landing will have six family rides and four interactive play zones for kids and families in an area saluting volunteer firefighters.
Centered around the headquarters of Fire Station No. 3, rides include Fire Spotter, with soaring balloons for spotting fire dangers; Fire Wagon Frenzy, a bouncing ride for bucket brigade volunteers; FireFall, an eight-story fire tower free-fall drop ride for the more daring recruits; Roundabout, a bouncy ride on Dalmatians racing around a fire hydrant; Up The Ladder, a smaller tower drop ride for junior recruits; and Fireman’s Flyers, a low-flying swing ride for little firefighters.
Attractions include Firehouse Splash Yard, with squirting water jets and pump hoses; Firefighter’s Fire Drill, with buckets, pumpers, foam ball cannons and targets for showering mock fires; Firefighter’s Fire Escape, an obstacle course of tubes, mazes, climbing structures and slides; and Firefighter’s Junior Fire Escape, a soft play area for toddlers.
In June, Silver Dollar City’s family-focused festival Star-Spangled Summer will feature the Harlem Globetrotters performing an exhibition of basketball expertise. The 30-minute performances will be presented three times daily for six weeks.
