Summer is for Amusement Parks

The other day, I saw a documentary on the top roller-coaster rides of the world. It was exhilarating to watch but going on them may be a different story, I am sure. To tell you the truth, I am not a roller-coaster person. Too chicken, I guess.

The one below can be found in Branson, Missouri. Besides the amusement parks and if you enjoy live shows, Branson is home to dozens of world-class attractions and is well-deserving of the moniker of "Live Music Capital of the World".

If you are planning a vacation to Branson, you can choose from their variety of vacation packages ranging from their 3D/2N Platinum Package for two which includes lodging, tickets to shows, gift cards, coupon book and discount certificates, to their Family Package for a 4D/3N stay for 2 adults and 2 kids plus tickets to shows. Alternatively, you can also design your own vacation package to suit your specific needs.

What can you do in Branson, you may ask. With 70 shows and attractions available you would wish that you could stay longer. Their shows include variety shows, acrobatics, concerts, music through the ages and more while their attractions include a number of interesting museums, rides and thrills, nature trails, water rides, go-karting, golf courses, caves and caverns, family entertainment centers, movie theaters and of course, shopping.

And while you are there, don't forget to visit Silver Dollar City. You will get to go back in time to the 1880’s, when the Ozark’s Hill People lived a simpler life. Silver Dollar City recreates the Ozark’s culture featuring near about 100 craftsmen doing everything from candle and candy making to glass blowing and blacksmithing. Something you shouldn't miss.

Branson, Missouri - make it your next vacation destination.


  1. i love roller-coaster rides. Can't wait for the rides to be up and running at Genting's Universal Studios Theme Park at Sentosa :D

    My wife and i took the indoor roller coaster ride inside Berjaya Times Square 3 times in a row :p

  2. Wow! Hats off to you and your wife. I'd much prefer to just watch...from the ground. LOL!

    You and your wife would have a whale of a time when the theme park at Sentosa is ready. When will that be?
