As everyone knows, the original opening date for Silver Dollar City was the 17th of March, 2020 which coincided with the spring break timeframe. Then coronavirus happened….
Disney immediately came out and closed all of their parks – then smaller parks followed suit. At the time, it seemed like the prudent thing to do because no one truly understood how serious this could be or would be.
As things developed over time, the management of SDC pushed opening out until the 28th of April, 2020 only to be trumped by the governor of Missouri who closed the state until the 15th of May, 2020. As this pandemic continued to evolve over time so did the timelines for opening.
Up until 2 days ago, it was believed that SDC would open on the 1st of June, 2020 and that was a “go” date for all of us. Then yesterday someone pointed out that the calendar on SDC’s website no longer shows anything happening in the park until the 1st of July, 2020.
Obviously, there is great concern on the part of SDC to minimize cross contamination – people sitting on rides, walking and brushing past one another, sitting in confined spaces for music shows and so on. We likewise are concerned and took the steps necessary to protect our guests as best we can here at the resort by purchasing a schedule N disinfecting system
So – as of this moment – we have no other reason to believe the park will be open before the 1st of July, 2020. If anything changes, we will most certainly update and pass along the information to everyone.
