The PineCone Playhouse is a project of Western Heritage Arts Center, Inc. We provide fantastic live entertainment year round in beautiful West Yellowstone. Each summer and fall we put on three musicals or plays, each with professional casts from around the country.
In 2012, a hang-glider pilot set the world record for distance while hovering above Texas soil for a thrilling 473 miles. Though newcomers won't be able to hit that range, they can still enjoy some of the same breathtaking sights with a discovery flight experience at Cowboy Up Hang Gliding. Cowboy Up Hang Gliding has been in business since 2003 years with over 3,000 tandem flights. There, USHPA-certified instructors fly along and help guide guests as they glide through the air. Flights can reach up to three soaring heights, from 2,000 feet to a heady one mile above ground. Though memories of this experience are usually very strong, staff can also take HD photos of the flight so guests can explain the thrill to friends and family or one day prove to their grandkids that they really did fly uphill to school every day. Take-offs and landings are on wheels so this low-impact activity involves no running or jumping and can be exhilarating for anyone, regardless of physical condition.
Throngs of excited runners crouch along the starting line, all dressed in pristine white T-shirts. As the Color in Motion 5K begins, the sea of bodies sets off along the course, where handfuls of purple-, blue-, and yellow-colored powder start flying in from the sidelines. The safe concoction of cornstarch and dye sprinkles onto faces, shirts, shorts, and skin, dressing runners in a technicolor haze. Teams or individuals make their way through the 5K course, and finish the race wearing a pallet of washable and biodegradable paint. Each race partners and benefits local charities, with racers running individually, in teams, or sponsored by their favorite Crayola color.
Being asked to deliver a wedding speech is an honor. It can also be terrifying. Laugh Staff's team of professional writers and comics work one-on-one with novice speechifiers to help them draft and deliver the best soliloquy their reception hall has ever seen, starting with the client’s own heartfelt stories about the new couple. Packages range from a light dose of help, such as simple feedback on an existing speech, to more thorough guidance. These more intensive treatments include revisions, video-chat conferences, and in-depth advice on whether or not to use a ventriloquist’s dummy.
You could explore the majesty of Yellowstone National Park by foot, or you could head to Yellowstone Aerial Adventures and survey the postcard-esque surroundings from the air. The adventure park treats patrons to ziplining excursions, which whisk people above the treetops at 20 miles per hour, or the speed of an antelope running a leisurely 5K. The park also challenges adventurers to traverse bridges made from ropes and logs, then offers up fuel in the form of tasty burritos from Bear Country Burrito Company.
At Madison Crossing Lounge, diners feast on high-end pub cuisine and fine wines in the refreshingly unique surroundings of a converted schoolhouse built in 1918. Snack on basil-infused blue mussels or grass-fed Montana bison steak salad before digging into entrees of hand-cut ribeye, pasta primavera, or trout à la meuniere.
