New ride to replace old one at Silver Dollar City

BRANSON, Mo. — The Mystic River Falls ride will replace the former Lost River ride at Silver Dollar City. The ride, along with a new BBQ restaurant called Rivertown Smokehouse, will be part of a $27 million expansion, Silver Dollar City announced on Tuesday. The new river raft ride takes riders up an eight-story lift, then down a 45-foot tall waterfall, the tallest drop of any water ride in the Western Hemisphere, Silver Dollar City President Brad Thomas said. The ride will be the main attraction at the new Rivertown area of the park, reports.
