If awesome activities are what you seek, you came to the right place. Branson offers many exciting outdoor activities that will get the heart pumping and the body moving. Or, take a tour that is both enjoyable and captivating. Whether you opt to play on land, in the water, or even in the air, these adventures will keep you entertained and create memories of a lifetime.

Safari Adventures

Take a safari without leaving the country at two new attractions. At Promised Land Zoo, explorers can take their personal vehicles on a drive along the habitats of many different animals. In 2017 the zoo opened a drive-thru park where animals including bison, camels, watusi and even a young giraffe roam over 65 acres for visitors to see. Meanwhile, Bigfoot Fun Park recently began offering tours to some of the most scenic spots in Branson. Board their safari vehicles and explore both neighboring farms and the vast wilderness surrounding the city on their Bigfoot Discovery Expedition. Led by a Bigfoot research team, you’ll cover a lot of ground in the covered vehicle where perhaps you’ll glimpse traces of the elusive creature? Don’t forget to check out the other attractions that opened at Bigfoot Fun Park in 2017 such as the Bigfoot Action Tower, the Yeti Play Zone and more.

ATV Tours

Take a trip through the hills on all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). Riders will love the exhilarating drive on trails that wind through the woods, along rivers and over hills. Ozark Off-Road ATV Adventures at The Shepherd of the Hills Adventure Park offers guided, adrenaline-filled tours over easy and rough terrain. On the journey, you’ll see impressive views of the Missouri wilderness while having an incredible time on your ATV. Be advised: you may get a little dirty on this wild ride!

Jet Boats

If you love speeding over the water, Branson has a boat tour for you. With 3 engines and 400 horsepower on the vessel, Branson Jet Boats will take you for a wild ride on Lake Taneycomo. Beginning at Branson Landing, you’ll probably get splashed on this 1-hour tour as the boat races across the water and does hairpin turns.

Paddle Sports

Water lovers can find adventure while kayaking around the rivers and lakes where they may even have the opportunity to see wildlife up close. Work on your core strength and maintain your balance by smoothly paddleboarding over the gentle waves of Lake Taneycomo or Table Rock Lake. Kayak Branson and White River Kayaking and Outdoors will gladly rent the equipment you need and provide instruction on its use. You’re sure to have a splashing good time on the water in Branson.

Mountain Coasters

Imagine rocketing down the side of a mountain at high speeds in a cart that you control! With the brake in your hands, you can go as fast or as slow as you like while riding either The Runaway Mountain Coaster or The Branson Coaster. Let gravity do the work on these attractions that resemble a personal roller coaster. After a leisurely 5-minute climb in your cart to the top of the mountain, coast around bends and curves on a scenic journey to the bottom. Few places in the United States offers rides like these, so jump on for a thrilling (or relaxing) trip down the mountain.


At The Track not only will your heart be racing, but the rest of your body will be as well. Take your pick of 14 go-kart race tracks including wooden ones such as the Wild Woody and the steel 4-story Heavy Metal High Rise. The rookie track is perfect for young drivers who want to take out their own car, and even 4-year-olds can drive the Kiddie karts. Meanwhile, Xtreme Racing prides itself on having the longest race track in North America and their super fast Xtreme Karts—so speedy that before driving these, riders must first qualify on the Pro Karts.


Adventure seekers will have a blast ziplining and climbing through obstacles high above treetops. Adventure Ziplines of Branson lets you fly through the hills at speeds of up to 50mph. You’ll also get to test your agility on the three swinging rope bridges throughout the course. This is a beautiful area to explore and what better way is there to see it than by having a bird’s-eye view from a zipline?

With so many fantastic activities to choose from, your trip to Branson can be jam-packed with amazing things to do and explore. So gather the family and go have an adventure outdoors!
