Woah, we were not ready for Branson, Missouri..
Coming from the east coast, trips to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg were common.. however, when Explore Branson invited us to Missouri for a weekend of adventure, we were shocked. We would soon discover that Branson, Missouri is possibly the HOTTEST tourist destination of the Midwest! We’re talking excitement to the next level; buildings invaded by a giant King Kong, a giant meatball tunnel, year-round carnivals, mountain rollercoasters, oh, and did we mention SKYDIVING??! Well, let us explain.
While we were in Branson, a company called Fritz’s Adventure invited us to try out their brand new installment of Aerodium, the United State’s first outdoor wind tunnel. We kindly refused….SIKE!! We showed up the next day full of adrenaline and excitement as we took to the sky for an INSANE skydiving experience (Hunter’s first!)! The next day, we got to see the rest of the adventure park at Fritz’s, which involved a 4-story indoor ropes course, a freefall, and literally CLIMBING THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING!! Finish that off with a quick stop to Hurt’s Donuts, then a quick caving expedition with some new local friends (Missouri is the cave state, after all), made for a pretty EPIC weekend.
