2019 Top Branson Attractions

Shrek the Musical Welk Resort

So Many attractions and so little time. Lots to see and do for families this year, so let’s get started.

1)Ride the ducks has re-branded it self, into a virtual reality space, with tons of things for the family to do. Located just next to Mcdonalds and Price chopper, this is a must see.

2)Mountain coaster-165 is heating up with this fantastic attractions, right next to Fall Creek Inn & Suits. A must see!

3)Trax has added a sling shot if you will, that spirals in a 360 degrees motion, right on the strip across from price chopper. It’s so huge you can’t miss seeing it.

4)Bigfoot-is still alive and still kicking on the strip. Their booster seat is amazing and worth a shot! No pun intended!

5)Wild World-Just behind Shoney’s and the Holiday inn on 76, this is the place to go to see a huge aquarium!

6)Castle Rock Water park is awesome. They are working away on some upgrades, and if you don’t stay there, you can do the waterpark, with a day pass!

There is so much I’ll have to mention in a second article!

Branson’s Shrek the Musical My Review

Got the opportunity to visit Shrek the Musical last night, at the Amazing Welk resort.

Compliments: If you don’t have your summer plans yet, this amazing play is running for 3 Months only. And is worth every penny. got to attend the opening night, for local eyes only. And I was deeply impressed. Shrek is played with great precision, and easy. The Donkey is played with tons of talent. And Lord Farquad steals the show! You’ll see how he navigates his amazing costumer.

Caveates: It is two and half hours long, with a great finaly and intermission of about fifteen minutes. It might be tough to keep the kiddos attention that long. The theater is spacious and the seats very comfortable. There are about 30-50 people in the cast, and at times, it is hard to take in.

Overall I give it five stars! Out of five!

Another Branson Giant is closing it’s doors

Another Branson Giant is closing it’s doors

I just love Branson. And I hate to hear, stories of a business closing down. But the Branson mill, after several years, of struggle will be shutting it’s doors. I haven’t gotten word yet of exactly, what day it will be closing. But all the vendors have marked down a ton of their inventory, and there will be more to come. The 90 plus vendors, are looking for somewhere to hand their hats. Rattle Snake Eddie has set up shop on the strip. Which could be good for him. Rattle Snake carries an assortment of leather products, hand made. Guitar straps, and tons of other stuff!

From what I understand the owners, are going to repurpose the area, to keep the little mall with the paddlewheel thriving. But they haven’t announced yet, what it will be . So stay tuned, and when we know, you will know!

That Crazy Night at Bobby Vinton’s

That Crazy Night at Bobby Vinton’s Blue Velvet Theater

Hello everybody, thanks for visiting my blog. All my blogs are geared towards celebrating my hometown Branson. So this isn’t a negative towards Branson, this is just  a story of what happened to me one night.

In the 90’s I was doing spotlight at the Roy Clark Celebrity theater. And I thought all spotlights were alike. A guy a new, a Texas looking guy, with a cowboy hat. Approached me about subbing for him at another theater, while he couldn’t make it. He was doing spotlight, somewhere else at the time. So I agreed. I showed up at the theater and got to meet Bobby and he was fantastic. He seemed to work very well backstage, so I was pretty impressed. He was very down to earth as well.

When I got up to the spotlight area, I realized I had never run these kinds of spotlights before. I had run a limousine style spotlight, which was very large and bulky. I’m even surprised today, that I showed up for the job, as I was nervous. When the show took off they gave me a headset, which  couldn’t run either, and would coach me through the set. At one point I had literally missed all my cues. So I went dark, but the other guys were very patient. As they needed someone desperately. So I persevered! The Glenn  Miller orchestra he had at the time was fantastic. Couples would get up and dance as Bobby sand and I thought that was awesome. At the end of the night, they sent me home, and I did not get paid at that time.

Months later I ran into Bobby’s son and he promptly paid me. And said they had to let the spotlight guy go, that I had replaced. So all the way around it turned out to be a great experience.
