The Branson Landing is one of the area’s most popular places for visitors and residents alike to relax, shop, eat and have fun. With more than 100 different shops, a dozen restaurants and fun family attractions like Parakeet Pete’s Waterfront Zipline and the new Parakeet Pete’s Waterfront Balloon coming soon, there’s an endless amount of fun to be had.
If you’re visiting with family, you’ll most definitely want to check out Parakeet Pete’s Waterfront Zipline. One of the most family friendly ziprides I’ve ever been to, this zipline takes you on a fast-paced ride across Lake Taneycomo.
Before you take flight, you’ll climb into a seat that looks a lot like a ski lift as a member of the friendly staff buckles you in. No harnesses, helmets or heavy gear is needed, making it ideal for riders of all ages.
Once you’re strapped in tight, hold on for a heart-pounding zip across the lake as you soar over the water all the way to Mount Branson. The sights are pretty neat from all the way up there and you’ll be able to see all of the Landing and downtown Branson from your bird’s eye perspective.
My favorite part of the zipride was the ride back to the Landing. It was exhilarating! You get to going so fast that you’re not quite sure you’ll be able to stop before crashing into the Landing! Luckily, the brakes on that zipride are pretty capable so you’ll end the ride with an exciting screech of a halt every time.
Parakeet Pete’s Waterfront Zipline is the perfect activity for the whole family, so next time you’re at the Branson Landing don’t forget to stop by and try it out for yourself. I guarantee you’ll love it!
