New Attraction Set to Open Spring 2017
(Branson, MO) – Construction is almost done in Branson, Missouri on the area’s newest and most thrilling attraction, Bigfoot on the Strip™.
Bigfoot on the Strip™, a $10 million project located at 3608 W. HWY 76, offers a variety of attractions, all themed around Bigfoot (as in Sasquatch) and designed to appeal to all ages and abilities. The Bigfoot themed project features both indoor and outdoor activities, a food truck dining park, a large outdoor patio, indoor and outdoor party spaces, and a visitor center.
The top of Bigfoot Action Tower™, at over 200’ tall, is the highest point in Branson, Missouri. The Tower, designed by legendary ride inventor Stan Checketts, and built by Soaring Eagle, features two new daring rides. The Gravity Bomb™, a free fall ride will drop riders from a height of 200’, utilizing a state of the art magnetic braking system that provides a smooth, yet breath stealing, experience.
The Saddle Sling, a two-person saddle ride will launch riders high into the air and then let them tumble end over end as they descend back towards earth. Both rides are the first of their kind to open to the public.
Another first of its kind is the Bigfoot Discovery Expedition™ where guests will join our Bigfoot Research team and board safari trucks for a visit to Bigfoot Farms, just ten minutes outside of Branson. Guests will experience the beauty of the Ozark Mountains and interact with mystical Scottish Highland Cattle on a working farm, featuring cows from the largest Scottish Highland producer in the Midwest, while always keeping on the lookout for signs of Bigfoot activity.
The approximate one hour and twenty-minute tour will take them off road and over rugged terrain with twists, turns, and a few surprises that will be sure to keep them on the edge of their seat. Bigfoot Discovery Expedition™ is family friendly and suitable for all ages and abilities.
Bigfoot Adventure Golf™, is an 18-hole Bigfoot themed golf adventure that will challenge your putting skills through Bigfoot’s woodland, research lab, and frozen tundra. The 18 holes include 9 ADA accessible holes.
Bigfoot’s Adventure Maze™ is a multi-level maze full of fun for the whole family. Bigfoot’s Adventure Maze™ will deliver varied challenges and obstacles to maze runners with its system of underground tunnels, spiral slide, and Yeti Treehouse.
Maze participants will race through the twisting, multi-level maze to find four checkpoints while avoiding Bigfoot. Participants will have the option of a traditional exit or, for the daring, taking a leap from the top of an Amish built Timber Frame tower!
Bigfoot’s 8Di Leadslinger Cinema™ allows players to participate in a totally immersive 8D interactive gaming experience. Players in the 14-seat cinema will put on 3D glasses, jump on a off road mini bike, grab a gun, and help Bigfoot escape. They will feel the rumble, hear the roars and be totally immersed. Instead of just watching the movie, players will be part of the movie.
Bigfoot Arcade™ features the area’s newest and most state of the art games with the most unique prize redemption in the area. The Prize Redemption area includes rare items, collectibles, and several entire Sports and NASCAR collections!
Bigfoot Food Truck Dining Park™ is Branson’s first food truck park. Guests will be able to enjoy delicious food selections from savory to sweet while sitting on the patio and watching the excitement of the surrounding attractions.
Bigfoot on the Strip will open in May 2017.
