Sun-down Attractions at Celebration City in Branson, MO
Step back in time and into thrills galore at Branson's all-new Celebration City, which provides afternoon and evening excitement and entertainment for all ages. Walk through the entrance and into the 20th century on Celebration Street, an area full of the vibrant activity of the early 1900s, complete with water sculptures and fountains from the elegant Victorian era that dance to music, and even a vintage-style carousel. The Electric Boardwalk overflows with a boardwalk park atmosphere reminiscent of the colorful days of trolley parks, and features amusement rides, games and arcade adventure; and the historic Route 66 celebrates the 1950s, an era of shiny automobiles and drive-in diners with theme rides, shops and restaurants.
Roller coaster aficionados will find their heaven on earth at Celebration City, which features the Ozark Wildcat, a wooden roller coaster. Or try the 60-foot-long Thunderbolt or the 52 feet of thrills called the Jack Rabbit. Other rides and attractions include the Accelerator, a tower ride that launches riders 80 feet before sending them plummeting back down; then there's the Fireball, which swings and spins screaming riders over 60 feet in the air; and the Electric Star Wheel, which is a 95-foot high classic Ferris Wheel. The children can enjoy riding the Bumble Bee, a trip on the Flying Carpet, or racing in a go-cart.
When you're ready to spend some time on the ground, take a walk through the Boardwalk, which features over 20 games of skill and chance including Balloon Pop, Duck Pond, or Football Toss for your enjoyment. Take a stroll through the shops on Route 66 where you'll find memorabilia galore, or stop in one of the other themed stores scattered throughout the park including the Baldwin Theater where you can have your picture taken in a turn of the century setting! If you're hungry, you can race over to the Coca-Cola Racing Family BBQ, or stop by the 50's-style Last Chance Diner.
As the evening winds down, the excitement continues to rise with the Dance Parties that turn the laser lawn into the largest dance floor in Branson featuring your favorite tunes from the 50's - 80's. If dancing isn't your thing then you can sit and be enthralled by the most awesome light show in the Midwest!
