This Rare Footage Of A Missouri Amusement Park Will Have You Longing For The Good Old Days

If you’re familiar with Branson, you may remember Celebration City. But before that, it was called Branson USA. The amusement park opened in 1999, but after struggling early on, it was closed in 2001.

The fate of Celebration City is still unclear. The Herschend Family Entertainment Corporation owns Silver Dollar City and White Water Branson, but they have yet to announce plans for this defunct amusement park.

But, let’s look back now. Click on the video below created by BackyardExploration. Please note that Celebration City is private property, so trespassing is not advised.
