Silver Dollar City has been expanded into a previously undeveloped region of the park to make way for Fireman’s Landing, a themed area with 10 family adventures, 3 of which are new interactive play zones supplied by WhiteWater Attractions. Themed as an 1880s volunteer recruitment fair, Fireman’s Landing recognizes the contributions of community heroes, honoring the service of firefighters and stressing the importance of volunteering.
The three play zones include Firefighter’s Fire Drill, which is a Foam Factory that features interactive blasters, vacuums and cannons that propel, throw and dump thousands of foam balls to put out mock fires; Firefighter’s Fire Escape, a Contained Play with fun play elements to climb, jump on, slide down and explore and the Firefighter’s Junior Fire Escape, a soft play area for toddlers. The three attractions offer endless exploration for kids and parents of all ages, allowing the family to play together. All three immersive areas reside inside Fire Station No. 3, the main building within Fireman’s Landing.
The Firefighter’s Fire Drill and Fire Escape is sure to ignite the imaginations of guests, incorporating the fire station theme using custom colors, and themed elements such as the centerpiece ball fountain feature. The custom designed Contained Play and Toddler Play was developed to allow the installation of a lift, ensuring maximum accessibility for all visitors. WhiteWater Attractions supported Silver Dollar City and Herschend Family Entertainment in the creation of the attractions. The $8 million development opened to the public on March 14th, 2015.
