The guides at Moto-Zip of Branson show how to navigate the treetop canopies year-round. While zipping between platforms at speeds up to 50 miles per hour, guests get unique views of the surrounding Ozarks and the unsung puppeteers that control them. The secure lines use a backup-cable system that prevents accidents, ensuring trips along the 2-mile tracks occur without snags.

The Sky Surfer offers three ways to fly like a superhero. First, riders can emulate Silver Surfer, standing on the board as it traces a half-mile path through Branson and the surrounding woodlands. Second, they can opt to lie on their bellies and fly like Superman, soaring between treetops some 50 feet above the ground. Finally, they can sit down on the board, just like Aquaman when he takes a commercial flight to visit his parents in Skokie. The modular nature of the ride means almost anybody can ride—kids as young as 3 are welcome (though they may want their parents to come with), as is anybody else weighing 275 pounds or less.
The Karts speak for themselves at Xtreme Racing Center. The selection includes European Sodi high-speed racing cars, which boast features such as an integrated drilled engine and a high-strength aluminum steering column. Drivers then burn rubber on the expansive racing course, racing against friends or the clock. On-board transponders track lap times to the thousandth of the second, and racers can pick up score sheets at the end of their heat.
Each hole at LedgeStone Country Club Golf Course bears its own name: the par 4 first hole, for example, is called "The Slot," while No. 7 goes by "Sycamore" and No. 12 "Sidewinder." This sort of attention to detail can be found all over the par 71 course, from the practice putting green to the zoysia fairways, each maintained to a carpet-like thickness in case a weary golfer wants to take a mid-hole nap. Brought about by the Ozarks' extreme elevation swings and rocky outcroppings along Roark Creek, the course's challenge builds to a crescendo on the 18th hole, known as "Ambush." From the minuscule landing zone, players face down an approach shot onto a green framed by a large water hazard, a tranquil waterfall, and bridge that leads foursomes from the putting surface back to the safety of the clubhouse.

In 1987?75 years after the RMS Titanic sank?John Joslyn helped lead an expedition to the bottom of the sea to photograph the wreck and bring up artifacts. Today, the gigantic permanent and interactive Titanic ship museum in Branson that he founded holds authentic items from the Titanic numbering in the thousands and valued at $4.5 million. But the museum's accoutrements of Edwardian life?items ranging from cutlery to deck chairs that fill meticulously accurate reproductions of the million-dollar grand staircase, the third-class sleeping rooms, and the cozy second-class space between the floorboards?are only part of the visitor's experience here. Interactive exhibits are also a permanent attraction, letting families touch an iceberg walk the grand staircase, learn to steer a ship and send an SOS signal, and perhaps even meet the museum?s pair of dog mascots. The kid friendly environment welcomes guests of all ages. A ship walk through typically takes two-hours.
Upon moving to Branson in the early 1990s, Don and Lawanna Stuck spent their leisure time hunting, fishing, and paddling the White River’s waterways. Drawing upon their intimate knowledge of Branson’s waterways, they opened White River Kayaking & Outdoors on July 4, 2012. Equipped with rental paddles and life jackets, their customers can navigate standard kayaks, tandem kayaks, or fishing kayaks along Lake Taneycomo, Table Rock Lake, or Bull Shoals Lake while marveling at the surrounding Ozark Mountains. Staffers drop guests off at several launch locations on each lake, and pick guests up at the conclusion of their float. White River Kayaking & Outdoors also rents out bicycles, which visitors can take around Branson’s parks and trails or pedal across the lake to combine two sports during a triathlon.
