If you’re headed to Branson, no doubt Silver Dollar City is at the top of your to-do list. And for good reason—with five world-class roller coasters, exciting seasonal festivals, and lots of down-home musical entertainment, this Ozarks hillbilly wonderland is the area’s most popular tourist attraction. But its top dog status comes with a price. Literally. In fact, general admission for a family of five could cost over $250. But why pay full price when you don’t have to?
If you have more time than money, consider listening to a sales presentation from a respected timeshare company. While it may seem too good to be true, these businesses often legitimately offer free tickets to Silver Dollar City for those who are patient enough to listen to a lengthy sales pitch for seasonal condominium packages. Although these presentations can sometimes last several hours, you won’t be disappointed in the end. An example of such an offer is listed below.
Buddy up with a Silver Dollar City worker to get free tickets. Employees of every Silver Dollar City attraction, including White Water and the Showboat Branson Belle, receive complimentary guest tickets every year that can be used without seasonal restriction. Sadly, many of these tickets go to waste. So be bold. Find a Silver Dollar City employee and you’ll be surprised what you can get simply by asking.
Schmooze up to your hotel concierge. She may not even know it, but the fact that she works in the Branson tourism industry likely qualifies her to get into the theme park for a mere $10. The best part? She can bring along a companion (ideally, you) for free! Don't believe it? Call the Silver Dollar City ticket office to find out which area businesses qualify. This is a little-known Branson secret that could save you big bucks if you’re willing to take the time to make a few friends.
