Silver Dollar City has announced that they will reopen to the general public on June 15th, following two days of exclusive operations for season pass holders.  The park's nearby water park, White Water, will open on June 17th also following two season pass holder exclusive days.  Finally, the Showboat Branson Belle will open on June 20th.

To monitor safety at the theme park, a variety of changes will be implemented.  You can read more about them in detail on the park's website.

The park will require season pass holders to reserve a date for their visit, and day-ticket visitors will have tickets that are only valid for the day they choose.  This will allow the park to monitor attendance.  Physical distancing will be in full effect across the park, including in stores, food areas, and on rides.  Indoor theaters and indoor play areas will remain closed for the time being.

Temperature checks will be done prior to entering the park, and both guests aged three and up and employees will have to wear masks.  Of course, the park will be cleaning and sanitizing all areas frequently throughout the day.

I don't see any update on the park's website as to whether or not their new water ride, Mystic River Falls, will be operating on the 15th.  The park has only shared some small tidbits of the ride in the off-season, prior to the pandemic, so it's hard to tell exactly how far along the ride is.  We won't have long to wait to find out, though!
