Silver Dollar City Expansion Project

(Branson) Silver Dollar City near Branson is planning a 30-million dollar expansion project.

The Springfield News-Leader says Park President Brad Thomas says the expansion will include a Mystic River Falls ride to replace the Lost River of the Ozarks ride.

The new ride, expected to open next summer, will include a 4-and-a-half story waterfall drop.

Also planned is a barbecue restaurant and other improvements.

More than 2-million people visited the theme park last year.
