This week I stopped by Branson’s Wild World and checked out some amazing animals from all around the world.
The attraction, located right off the strip next to Wal-Mart, is actually a three-in-one family adventure, featuring an indoor animal safari, black light mini golf and a Jungle arcade.
I started off my visit with a walk through the animal exhibits which house hundreds of interesting creatures from lizards and snakes to wolves, stingray, parrots and more.
I moved rather quickly through the section with the huge, furry spiders and snakes but I loved seeing the wolves! The smaller ones were so curious. As I approached the exhibit, they ran right up to the glass stared right at me. It was really neat to see them up close.
Branson’s Wild World also boasts a great opportunity to hold and touch many of the animals. Staff will let you safely hold a huge lizard, feed bull sharks or reach into the waters of the touch tank to touch stingray and other aquatic animals.
The parrots are especially neat as well. While I was there, three of them were perched outside of any enclosures and one either really liked me or hated me because she kept squawking at me every time I walked by. It was pretty loud and two of the staff members thought it was pretty funny. I wasn’t sure what to think!
After I explored the animal exhibits, I walked through the 3-D mini golf course which was pretty awesome. Upon entering the indoor course area, golfers are immediately enveloped in a dark, jungle filled with black-lit trees and live animal exhibits.
The Jungle Arcade was just as neat if you are a video game lover. Kids would have a blast in there and the room is filled with dozens of different arcade games, purely for their entertainment.
Branson’s Wild World also has a very nice gift shop area complete with a snack shack, just in case you get hungry.
You should definitely stop by and bring the family. Let me know what you think next time you visit Branson’s Wild World at 2020 W. Hwy. 76, next to the Wal-Mart on the strip.
