Planning your Trip to Silver Dollar City
There are a few things that you need to know before you go to White Water in Branson. We will start with tickets, hours, and some basic questions you might have about whitewater in Branson.
What is White Water in Branson MO? ( Silver Dollar City Water Park in Branson)
White Water in Branson is a 13-acre water park. There are ten different slides and attractions, including a lazy river, a wave pool, and a children’s play area.
Is Branson White Water Close to Silver Dollar City Amusement Park?
The answer is no. It is not one of those water parks that is connected to the amusement park. It is actually located five miles away or about a 10-minute drive.
So don’t plan on doing White Water the same day that you do the Silver Dollar City amusement park.

It opens at 10:00 am every day, closing at 6:00 pm on weekdays and 10:00 pm on weekends
It is free to park! There is a large parking lot that has plenty of parking.
Food and Lockers at White Water in Branson
Are There Places to Eat in the Park?
White Water in Branson has restaurants located within the park. They are more quick-service locations where you order at the counter.
I believe if you have a Silver Dollar City Mug you can use it at White Water Branson as well.
Is Outside Food Allowed?
Outside food is not allowed in the park. However, there is a picnic area located just out in front of the park. We were able to have a picnic in this spot and thought it was great.
Lockers and Bags
You may bring a backpack into the park. Lockers are available if you need to lock up valuables. Small lockers cost $10 and family lockers are $18. A $10 refundable deposit is taken as well.
Plan of Attack!
Before we start on any plans we should address a few things.
Dressing Rooms and Showers
If you need to change before or after the park showers and dressing rooms are available.
Life jackets are free to use for children and non-swimmers.
Let’s Plan a Day at White Water in Branson
Obviously, the ages of your group will determine how to tackle the park. The good news is it is fun for all ages. The ages of children and teens we had with us ranged from 5 to 18, and all had fun!
There are two areas for younger children (more on that later) And of course, there are slides for the older kids and teenagers, including drop towers.
What I love about White Water in Branson was that it provided a variety of options that I am used to in a water park, but at the same time, the size of the park is not overwhelming. Big enough to keep you busy for the day, but small enough so I felt very comfortable with my family splitting up. I am pretty paranoid normally.
Favorite Rides at White Water Branson for Little Kids
This plan of attack is if you have little kids who do not want to or can not ride the bigger slides. When my kids were little I would scope out all the areas of the water park that would be fun for my littles. At Silver Dollar City White Water I could easily find the areas that would be ideal for families with young children.
I would recommend Splashway Cay, Coconut Cove, the lazy river, and the Wave pool.
1. Splashway Cay
Splashway Cay is a huge splash pad with slides. You can climb to different levels as you get sprayed with water. There is a huge bucket on top that will dump every few minutes.
Unfortunately, when we went this area was closed.
2. Coconut Cove
Coconut Cove is an area for younger kids. This area has fun slides that even really little kids can enjoy. My five-year-old loved this area. He felt confident going up and sliding down all by himself.
3. Surf’s Up Wave Pool
Everyone loves a good wave pool! If you are with younger children staying in the shallow area of the wave pool is really fun for them.
If they have life jackets on you may feel more comfortable bringing them in a little deeper. Although most wave pools I have been in usually have a line that indicates that anyone in life jackets are not permitted past that point.
4. Aloha River at Hula Hula Bay
When my kids were really little sometimes grandma or grandpa would float on the river with one of the kids and they would just fall right asleep. When my kids were a little older I would walk with them as they were inside the tube.
If you are entertaining little kids this will be fun and take up time!
Plan for Older Children and Adults
White Water Branson has some amazing water slides. This plan will list out the slides that we loved and what our older kids thought about each one.
5. Ohana Falls
Ohana Falls is a fun family ride. As long as your child is at least 36″ they can come on this ride. This ride has a big raft (think of the type of raft used for a rapids ride at an amusement park), that goes down a wide slide.
Four people are allowed to go on at a time, and you will need at least two people.
What is nice about this ride is the raft is waiting at the top for you. So you do not have to carry it up. The bad news is that as you exit this ride you are at the very bottom of a large hill. You have to climb what seems like a million stairs to get back to the main level of the water park. (or go back around by the entrance).
We did it 4-5 times and then climbing back up didn’t bother us too much!
6. Kapau Plummet
Everyone in our family reunion group loved this ride. What is unique about it is that you stand at the top of the ride and the floor disappears. You are dropped down into a slide.
Personally, this was not my favorite ride at White Water in Branson because it hurts my back…I am just getting old. And my husband had a great time with no complaints. Kids love it!
7. Kalani Tower Mat Racers and Tower Drop
Kalani Tower Mat Racers is perfect when you have a larger group that is competitive. Our family reunion crew loved racing each other.
The towers were a hit with the teenagers in our group. They said it hurt but they kept going back for more.
8. Waikiki Wave
This is a classic tube ride that twists and turns. This ride is fun and will be one of your favorites!
9. Pipeline Plunge
Pipeline Plunge is more intense than the Waikiki Wave. It is faster and twists a little more. At the end of this ride, you will be splashed maybe even emerged in water.
Is White Water in Branson, MO Worth It?
I think this is a legit question. There are so many fun activities in Branson, more than anyone could possibly do in one trip. Trying to narrow down what you want to add to your itinerary is important.
For us, White Water made sense because we went during a pandemic and there were not a lot of open attractions. We were excited that Silver Dollar City was open and so was the water park. It just made sense to do both.
We also had a big group which made White Water Branson perfect! There is something fun for everyone. The kids loved splitting off with their cousins and enjoying the park. The adults could relax by the pool or jump on the rides.
Overall, we all had a great day and loved White Water Branson.

I love the pictures. It doesn’t look too overly crowded.
It wasn’t too bad! There were still enough people to feel normal!
My son would love this water park! I’m glad to see how different places are taking the proper precautions for COVID.
They did a great job! We were impressed!
Water slide parks are just so much fun. It’s good to see that this park is adapting and the fun can still be had!
That is what I love!
White Water is a fun place, but it’s been a few years since we’ve been since my daughter doesn’t really do water slides. We live in Joplin, and we usually go to Branson a couple of times per year. We haven’t been this year, though. I could definitely use a spin around the lazy river about now. That would be heavenly!
I love water parks, and this looks like a fun one! Although I too am getting old and some slides just aren’t worth the pain anymore!
I hate the ones that hurt my back.. I am getting to old too!
Silver Dollar City white water looks like it would be fun playing in the water and on the slides.
It was so fun! We got to go on them multiple times too.
We love visiting water parks and this one looks like it has some great slides. I am always especially fond of lazy rivers and wave pools!
Yes, me too! We loved going on the slides too!
What a great spot this will be to take my grand. It looks like a wholesome family environment.
It is! It is a great spot to bring the kiddos!
My daughter was reading this with me and she really wants to go on the OHana Falls ride. She says this is a place we NEED to go to. I guess that means it’s kid-approved!!
Totally kid approved! It is a fun little park!
Looks refreshing and fun.
I know right!
That looks like an amazing water park; I am sure that my kids (and I!) would love it!! I love that it has so many options for all ages.
Oh yes, there really is something for everyone!
I would love to visit White Water – Silver Dollar City’s water park. I am a huge water slide fan. This place looks like it has some great slides.
They have some really fun water slides!
What a fun waterpark! And I love all the safety precautions they’re taking so that guests have peace of mind about visiting.
For sure! They did a great job!
Sounds like a fun place! They are doing a good job with trying to keep everyone healthy too.
They did a great job!
Our waterparks are all closed right now sadly. This looks like a great place to visit and it looks like you had the place to yourself.
It wasn’t too crowded but still enough people to feel normal!
This is a fun water park! My kids used to enjoy it very much when they were younger.
That is awesome! My kids love it too!
Looks like a great time! We love water parks!
Our family loves them too!
This look like so much fun.. too bad our trip is in the late fall.. looks like we need a summer trip too!
It might be a little to cold in fall!
This water is calling my name! Lol. Looks like a lot of fun.
I know that water is calling my name too!
This looks like loads of fun and it looks so refreshing! Thanks for the info!
I always loved taking the kids to the water park when they were little. Miss those days.
Your posts are giving me fabulous memories of a trip I took to Silver Dollar City over 40 years ago! Thanks to your posts, the joy is sure to be shared by so many children now and in the future! Thank you!
I love that! For sure it is such a fun place!
What a great family get away! One silver living thanks to COVID – it looks like you were able to enjoy the water park when it wasn’t too crowded.
I hate crowds so for me it was great!
Wow, it looks empty! I would love to be somewhere with very little crowds. Our water and amusement parks are closed 🙁
We got there early and as the day went on more people came.
I love a good water park! I’m glad to see that they are being careful during COVID.
Yes, it was great!
How fun! My kids would love Coconut Cove or the Aloha River!
For sure! Those are so fun!
We love water parks! We have one near us, so we might be squeezing a visit in next week!
Sounds like a good idea!
This looks like so much fun! In this heat I think everyone needs a water park right about now!
We have had the hottest summer on record!
I have great memories of going to water parks when I was a kid.
Me too and I hope I can make some of those memories with my kiddos!
The kids live water parks, and it looks as though places like this are figuring out how to make it work with our new normal. Maybe next summer we will be more open to attending attractions like these!
I love water parks and this one looks like a ton of fun!
It is so much fun!
Looks like a fun time for all! Happy to see that it wasn’t too crowded as well.
Low crowds is always good!
I’ve never heard about silver dollar, it looks like a lot of fun!
It is a fun area. Branson is a huge tourist attraction city. So much to do!
We love Brandon, Missouri and always have a blast when visiting family. Water park included but wouldn’t be going right now. Would find it odd to be in a mask.
What is nice about the water park is that you do not have to wear the mask once you are in the park and going on the water rides.
I wish there was a place like this near us that was open!!
Hopefully next summer!
Water Parks are a family favorite! Silver Dollar looks amazing!
It is a fun park. We loved it!
