Sightsee with Branson’s Ride the Ducks for an adventure on both land and water. Your captain will lead you on an informative and beautiful tour of Branson as you ride through the Ozark hills, down the strip, downtown Branson and into Lake Taneycomo. You’ll receive complimentary Wacky Quackers and even get the chance to drive the Duck once your captain splashes down into one of the most scenic lakes in America.

Join the friendly competition between the two sides of the audience as you cheer for your rider’s performance. At the Dixie Stampede, you’ll get to experience a real buffalo stampede, carriage racing, a waltzing performance and so much more as you and the kids enjoy a delicious, four-course meal with the show. Just an added perk — imagine how excited they’ll be when you tell them that they are actually expected to eat with their hands.
