While crossing most ranches on the great American plain, one might be saddled on a horse or particularly lively cow, but at Eagle Falls Ranch, guests strap into ziplines and enormous hamster balls before hurdling into the sunset. High bridges and platforms connect the six ziplines, which send riders on adrenalin-spiking soars past waterfalls, over fountains, and along the Jacks Fork River. This same sense of adventure permeates the ZORB ride, where two guests strap themselves to the inside wall of a giant inflatable ball before rolling and bouncing along a 500-foot downhill course. In addition to their daytime adventure courses, Eagle Falls Ranch also hosts night zipline rides, as well as campgrounds and cabins for guests who would like to start their mornings with an invigorating downhill rush instead of a murky cup of coffee.

Amid Hardy's hardwood forests and rocky bluffs resides terrain that the Griffin family has called home for more than 60 years. Throughout the decades, the family has built Griffin Park into a destination to relax, play, and test the latest camouflage fashions amid the area's scenery and wildlife. In 2011, Gregg Griffin and his brothers overhauled the park, removing old fences and flood debris. Their cleanup efforts made way for new campsites, beaches, and a performance venue. Today, the melodies sung by artists such as Neal McCoy frequently fill the park, setting an upbeat mood for adventurous attractions including zipline and horseback rides. The Spring River passes through Griffin Park and carries canoes, kayaks, and tubes down its watery freeways. Fish such as smallmouth bass swim beneath the water's surface while more than 400 bird species sing and beat box overhead.

Caught in a midlife crisis in 1995, husband-and-wife team Kemp and Michele Horn—a former forester and attorney, respectively—packed up their young family and all of their belongings, embarking upon a life-changing adventure as they made the long trek from Baltimore to the Black Hills of South Dakota. This move westward led the Horn family to purchase a working ranch, where, due to the last-minute cancellation of the band hired to play there through the busy tourist season, the family stepped up to unleash their inner performers. Though none of the Horns had any background in music, all the family members quickly adopted instruments or cursed mermaid's voices of their own and used their backgrounds in the performing arts to create a long-running show hailed by audiences from around South Dakota. Now, having relocated to Branson, the Horns, under the band name "The Riders of the Circle B," combine their passion for hospitality with their love of performing three to four nights a week during their Circle B Supper Show.

Paying homage to the Wild West of yore, the Horns kick off their shindigs with showings of cowboy movies before replenishing guests’ energy stores with home-cooked food warm from the oven. Tossing their chef's hats and aprons aside, the talented clan then pick up their music makers and coax forth laughs from onlookers with their ebullient brand of music and impressions of famous tumbleweeds.
