Many, such as the wonderful Silver Dollar City, are located in and near the state's entertainment capital, Branson. Other major parks include Worlds of Fun in Kansas City and Six Flags St. Louis (which, oddly, is located in Eureka). Let's run down the state's parks, both large and small. The parks are arranged in alphabetical order. Bigfoot Fun Park Located on the strip in the heart of Branson, it's hard to miss the park's 200-foot-tall tower ride, Bigfoot Gravity Bomb. Riders in open-air seats slowly rise to the top and then freefall to the ground. On the other side of the tower is the even more thrilling Bigfoot Super Sling. Two passengers in saddle-like seats are catapulted up the tower and experience flips on the way down. Other attractions include an interactive play structure for younger kids with tunnels, slides, jumping platforms, and more called the Yeti Fun Zone, an arcade with redemption games, an 8D Cinema Ride, and the Bigfoot Discovery Expedition, which takes passengers on a guided tour in search of Sasquatch. Branson Mountain Adventure Park Opened in 2016, the Branson park is now home to the Runaway Mountain Coaster. The ride is not a traditional roller coaster. Situated on Branson Mountain, the alpine coaster uses the natural terrain. Passengers control the speed by using onboard brakes. The park says that it has more attractions planned, but the alpine coaster is the only one open to date. Fritz's Adventure Fritz's Adventure This huge indoor and outdoor attraction in Branson features a ropes course, climbing structures, mazes, underground tunnels to explore, and a free fall experience. Among the highlights is Fritz’s Aerodium, an outdoor wind tunnel that allows visitors to experience skydiving without actually having to jump from a plane. Lemans Fun Parks Lemans has three locations in Lake Ozark, all of which feature go-karts. Among the options is a slick track and a junior racer track. Other activities include bumper boats and mini-golf Miner Mike's Indoor Family Fun Center The indoor family entertainment center in Osage Beach, Lake of the Ozarks, includes electric go-karts, a small coaster, a Ferris wheel, an arcade, a maze, and a restaurant. PowerPlay Metro North Entertainment Center Indoor and outdoor attractions at the Kansas City family entertainment center include a small roller coaster, bumper cars, a Tilt-A-Whirl, a carousel, a Ferris wheel, a zipline, go-karts, bowling, laser tag, and an arcade. Herschend Family Entertainment Silver Dollar City One of the country’s finest parks, the theme at Silver Dollar City in Branson is 1880s America. Thrill rides and coasters mix nicely with some great shows, music, and period crafts demonstrations. Among the standout rides are the incredible "controlled spin” coaster, Time Traveler, the industry's first wooden-steel hybrid coaster, Outlaw Run, and the launched coaster, Powder Keg. Food, which includes buffet-style and table-service restaurants, are one of Silver Dollar City’s highlights. Buckshot's Skillet Cookery serves scrumptious fare cooked in giant skillets. Homemade ice cream, candies, and baked goods are also among the treats. The park presents a series of festivals, including Bluegrass and BBQ, Harvest Festival, and one of the industry’s best holiday events, An Old Time Christmas. Six Flags St. Louis The major theme park in Eureka, part of the Six Flags chain, includes plenty of coasters, including three wooden ones: American Thunder, Boss, and Screamin’ Eagle. It was one of two Six Flags parks to introduce the highly sophisticated, interactive dark ride, Justice League: Battle for Metropolis. The water park Hurricane Harbor, is included with admission. Consider purchasing the park’s skip-the-lines feature, Flash Pass. Worlds of Fun The major amusement park in Kansas City offers some great coasters, including Patriot, an inverted steel ride, Prowler, a wooden coaster, and Mamba, a 205-foot-tall hypercoaster that hits 75 mph. The adjacent Oceans of Fun water park is included with admission.
