Last time, in the first part of this look at a recent visit to Silver Dollar City, we saw some of the many attractions and other offerings the park has waiting for guests. If you missed that section, here is a direct link. Now let's get going, there is still a ton of the park to experience!
|I'm ready to volunteer!|

|The 'main event' if you will.|
The ride has taken up home just beyond Wilson's Farm and has a wonderfully themed entrance plaza complete with fully realized Western buildings and even an authentic stage coach.
|Up the quick lift hill.|
|Silver Dollar City builds pretty coaster stations!|
One can only imagine the other designs that could come from this new track technology, endless I'm sure, but I will be eager to see how this style of ride could be incorporated at other parks.
|Splash! Is anything here not pretty?|
|Tucker out those kids!|
|Huge play area for the kids.|
There's blasters located along the side of the structure, where you can aim and blast at targets on the structures located in the middle of Lake Silver. Once enough pressure has built up the geyser will launch - just make sure you're not standing too close!
|That is an instrument or a large sting ray. I think.|
Guests line up very early for performances and many groups plan their days around the entertainment schedule. With so much to see, those who love shows and rides really need more than one day at the park!
|A raft heading through the river course.|
|Those kiddies are trying to spray non-riders!|
|This mine is flooded! See!|
|Train time! A perfect break.|
|That "whaaa" face is perfect for the character!|
|An Arrow mine train! Woohoo!|
|Directly out of the station.|
|Zooming through the forest on Thunderation.|
I had high hopes for this ride and I must admit that even outside of my affinity for Arrow mine trains Thunderation is great!
|Welcome to the Grand Exposition!|
|All smiles on the Mighty Galleon.|
|Spinning, spinning - a bit too much for me.|
|One of many scenes like this around the property.|
