Silver Dollar City

Daniel was able to get us free season passes through his work to the theme park Silver Dollar City. It has roller coaster rides, old time craftsman, activities like panning for gold, and then right now is world fest where they bring in a whole bunch of people from around the world. We went Thursday and had a blast. The park was built over a huge cave called Marvel Cave so this time we decided to take the tour. It is really cool! We had to carry Ben the whole time, but it was still fun. It lasted about an hour and we saw bats, cave formations, and got our picture taken. We also had lunch in the taste of the world...I had moussaka from Greece (It tasted like a hot dish), and Daniel had Bratwurst and sauerkraut from Germany. We saw a show called feet of fire from Ireland and they were amazing! I loved it and hope to someday be able to take lessons on Irish step dancing. Then we went on roller coaster rides. I went on this one called the barn swing where they swing you so high you feel like you will fall out. Then we both took turns on one called blast off. You go from 0-60 mph in 2 seconds. When I got in there was this kid who asked me if I had ever been on this one before, I said no and he said he hadn't either and was a little nervous! They take a photo right away and We had to buy it because of the look on the kids face! Ben loved the whole day. He just sat in his stroller and watched everything happen. We had so much fun and can't wait to go back during the next festival!
