PowderKeg is an S&S Power launched coaster that hits speeds of 50+ mph in 2.8 seconds before catapulting riders on a twisting, hill-laden track that is designed to provide a sense of flying. After traversing several hills and turns, riders are then dragged up a lift hill, with bluegrass music playing in the background. The lengthy circuit then continues, featuring a 110-foot drop and several "airtime" hills.

Wildfire is the tallest and fastest roller coaster at Silver Dollar City. This sit-down coaster features a highly themed station, four-across seating, a 150-foot first drop, speeds in excess of 65 mph, and several inversions including an Immelmann loop, a large standard loop, a cobra roll, and a corkscrew.

New for 2018, a $26 million investment, Time Traveller is claimed to be the tallest, steepest, fastest spinning coaster in the world with a 100-foot, 90 degree drop. It has two launches and three inversions, including a vertical loop, dive loop, and zero-G roll.

Fire-in-the-Hole is a unique combination of a dark ride, a roller coaster and a water coaster. The coaster section is relatively tame, with the ride hitting a top speed of just 27 miles per hour. The ride's backstory is based around the hill Ozark town of Marmaros, which housed miners drawn to the area.

Thunderation is an 81-foot tall, high-speed coaster with a scenic view of the Ozarks! The train begins its journey propelled by gravity until cars reach the coaster’s only lift. The lift carries passengers 121 feet into the air before dropping them 81 feet at speeds up to 48 mph. The runaway mine train takes a spiraling drop and races through an underground tunnel before returning to the loading station.

American Plunge is a classic log flume-style water ride. It features a backstory based around Ozark residents attempting to be the first to take the "plunge" over a waterfall, and fittingly ends with a high-speed 50-foot drop into a splash zone.

Magnificent Wave Carousel is a classic, family-friendly "chair-o-plane" attraction. Riders sit in seats that are suspended by chains from a circular structure, which rotates to send them spinning outwards. A mixture of single and double seats are available.
