If you’re planning on a visit to Branson, Missouri during the Christmas season you’re going to be in for a festive time. Not only will you experience the incredible shows, theme park, Imax and the sight of beautiful light displays but Branson has some awesome attractions that are most popular during Christmas time. With the lights and Christmas music all around you, Branson really knows how to go all out for the Christmas season. Today I’m featuring the top attractions in Branson, Missouri during this time of year.
Branson Ferris Wheel
You may only think of riding a Ferris wheel during the summer season, but that’s not the case in Branson, Missouri. You’ll love to experience the Branson Ferris Wheel and it’s one of the most popular attractions in Branson during Christmas time.
Not only can you see the beautiful views of southern Missouri while atop this magnificent attraction, but you’ll be 150 feet up and with the ability to hold 240 passengers you’ll never worry about having to wait in too long of a line for your ride. The Branson Ferris Wheel is even better at night when you can experience their 16,000 LED light display that covers the entire Ferris wheel.
Lastly, if you’ve already had your share of the Branson Ferris Wheel try sitting in the parking lot and tuning your car radio station to 90.9 where you can listen to the Christmas music that accompanies the LED lights on the Branson Ferris Wheel.
Tour History at the Titanic Museum
There’s nothing more exciting and fun than taking a historical tour of the Titanic Museum. You can travel back to 1912 as you venture on a tour at the Titanic Museum in Branson. The beauty of this replica of the Titanic goes beyond just the 400 artifacts found inside. Visiting for the second time was even better!
You’re able to go down a replica of the Titanic’s Grand Staircase and experience what the guests aboard the Titanic in 1912 felt like. There’s something magical about how you feel walking on this staircase. We’ve all seen the movies and read about the Titanic but this one staircase really helps you take in the grandness of the ship that sunk in 1912.
We were so lucky to have the same tour guide as last time! He is so knowledgeable on the topic and has a beautiful personality. He shared stories about the passengers and the locations on the Titanic. Walking through the gallery of pictures and the survivors’ wall of stories, was a teary moment. Just to think of what these passengers went through at that tragic time. I recall him telling us about Father Francis Browne and his love for photography and how he had taken photos of the ship and the passengers just days before it sank.
Not only are you able to experience this beautiful journey back into time at the Titanic Museum in Branson, but you can experience the sloping deck. The sloping deck is where guests who tour the Titanic Museum in Branson can feel exactly like the passengers on the Titanic when the ship was sinking. The sloping deck is something that will surely stir up some emotions as you feel the motion of that deck sloping before it hit the water.
As we the exited the museum, we were treated to some delicious milk chocolate bars, beautifully wrapped! You’ll surely enjoy the Titanic Museum in Branson. It’s by far one of my favorite attractions in Branson.
Whether you’re looking to dive back into history or take a magical Ferris wheel ride up 150 feet, Branson surely has something for everyone. Branson, Missouri has many more attractions to enjoy during your visit to this beautiful area.
