What they developed was a theme park attracting over two million people each year and winning the theme park industry's top award of excellence worldwide.
Silver Dollar City, an 1880s-style theme park in Branson, Missouri, has been internationally awarded for excellence in theme, presentation and operations, including the worldwide Applause Award for excellence, the THEA Award (Themed Entertainment Assoc.) for theming, and the Golden Ticket award as the “Friendliest Park” in the entire theme park industry.
