  1. I can’t wait until Branson Zipline opens up! It seems like it’s going to be a great adventure for everyone that visits Branson. As for the shows, I’m very excited to see that the Moscow Circus will be opening back up. The new ride in SDC is bound to be a great addition to the park and I’m definitely due for a SDC visit.
