Hi guys, in need of some recomendations for the park. Myself and two other friends are excited to be visitnig the park for the first time, and we got the ERT for TT before the park opens.

Where would be a good place to eat inside the park, get souvenirs, and does the park have Wifi?

I often recommend the skillets to first time visitors, as they're the most unique. You can go anywhere, though; there's no bad food. Read a menu and go to what catches your eye.

For souvenirs, depends on what you're looking for. The shops feature more crafts than your typical theme park stuff. If you want to buy something like glass or pottery, have it sent to the pickup location in Ozark Marketplace. You'll exit the park through there at the end of the day, so it's easy and you don't have to lug anything around or potentially break it.

No public wifi, or at least they haven't so far and they haven't advertised that they are getting it. I think they will at some point as it's becoming pretty much standard, but those hills have got to be tough to get adequate coverage.

https://blog.silverdollarcity.com/article/5-things-you-need-to-know-about-opening-day

New blog post today describing the new area, with menus for the new and/or expanded restaurants.

SDC Blog wrote:The brand-new Traveler’s Stop restaurant serving up delicious fried chicken sandwiches and gourmet grilled cheeses, while guest favorite Buckshot’s Skillet Cookery moved into a new building across the street and will debut an expanded menu. Hatfield’s Tater Patch is still serving up their signature calico potatoes, but the restaurant will have a fresh new look. We’ve also built a new guest outdoor seating area with expanded capacity, giving you more room to relax and enjoy your lunches and dinners.

You’ll also have the chance to explore three new shops on Valley Road. Time Traders is your one-stop shop for Time Traveler souvenirs, while Emmaline’s Dress-Up Emporium features a wide range of costumes that will inspire little adventurers to take a journey into their imagination. And be sure to swing by Casey’s Dugout, featuring a wide range of baseball-themed apparel, souvenirs and home décor.

Not only is Andrew incredibly knowledgeable about SDC, but I'm jealous about hearing the pride he has for his home park... F-U SFSTL

As far as the souvenirs go, Emily and I picked up a bottle opener from the metal shop where the gifts were forged on sight, years ago. That thing opened bottles like a champ. It had a very simple design, but it was incredibly rigid. They had a lot of cool stuff in that shop.

Unfortunately, we lost the bottle opener somewhere over the summer. Now we're more frequently forced to use the bottle opener on the collar of our dog, Greg. At least he's good for something.
