Silver Dollar City & RMC unveil the new Fire in the Hole indoor coaster at IAAPA Expo in Orlando

Silver Dollar City has revealed the new Fire in the Hole indoor coaster on the show floor at RMC’s booth in Orlando.

Casey and The Atta Boys, a lively band of firefighting musicians from Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri, heralded the reveal of the park’s new Fire in the Hole roller coaster car on the IAAPA Expo show floor. Like most themed elements at the 1880s-themed park, the “pumper wagon” recalls an earlier era. The car, however, neatly disguises modern-day technology.


Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) designed the vehicle and will be building the family coaster, which will feature a modified version of its I-Box track. A hybrid dark ride and coaster, it will replace the original Fire in the Hole, a beloved, quirky attraction that closed last year following 51 years of operation.

The new version of the ride will pay homage to the classic coaster and reimagine many of its scenes and characters, including the forlorn Red Flanders, who, Silver Dollar City officials reassure, will still be unable to find his pants. With a $30 million budget, Fire in the Hole 2.0 represents the park’s largest investment ever.


“This new indoor coaster will be a first of its kind and will take our guests on an incredible journey,” says Brad Thomas, Silver Dollar City company’s president as well as the city’s “mayor.” “It will feature onboard, high-resolution audio that will immerse our guests in the sights and the sounds of a fiery night.”

The new attraction will be housed in a five-story show building behind the park’s existing Fireman’s Landing. With the addition of Fire in the Hole in 2024, the land will be renamed the Fire District.
