Family Christmas at Silver Dollar City – Part 2


Emma and Olivia really enjoy riding PowderKeg at Silver Dollar City.  PowderKeg is a roller coaster that shoots you off at 60 miles an hour and it makes several twists and turns at high speeds before returning to the shed.  It only takes 2 minutes, so I thought I would try it with the girls.  I waited in line about 30 minutes.  I watched as a father measured his 5 year-old to see if he met the height requirements to ride PowderKeg.  I thought, well if a Kindergartener could ride this, surely a 44 year-old Mom of 5 can conquer this ride!!  Wrong!!  I rode with Emma and she said as soon as the coaster shot off I never stopped screaming until we stopped.  For the record, I only opened my eyes one time.  I survived PowderKeg to live another day, but my brains were a little rattled for a few hours!

SilverDollarCitypresents a great variety of shows for the whole family.  The lines were very long for It’s A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol so our family decided to pass on these shows this year.  I have seen Dickens’ Christmas Carol in years past and it is awesome.  I highly recommend it.

Larry and I took the boys to the Frosty show.  It was really cute with lots of audience participation.  The show begins with a young woman checking her mail for packages and she starts to visit with the mailman.  She receives a package that holds the items to build a snowman.  With lots of singing and jokes, they begin to build a snowman.  Bandit, the raccoon, even gets in on the act.  They place a hat on the snowman and he comes to life and sings and tells stories to the kids.  It was lots of fun and the boys really enjoyed it.  The best part for Gideon was to eat his kettle korn while watching the show!  Family fun!

I hope you and your family have a Wonderful Christmas and lots of time together over the Holidays.
