This three-day Branson, Missouri fun-fest lets you mix it up in the “Live Entertainment Capitol of the World” with a diverse itinerary of student trip favorites! You’ll relive the 1912 sinking of the luxury liner Titanic, follow Jonah into the belly of a whale, enjoy TWO dazzling performances at Clay Cooper Theatre, storm a super-sized outlet on a bargain-hunting spree, explore area highlights from the back of a “Duck”, hit the fun Mother Lode at Silver Dollar City - and more!
Branson’s “Titanic Museum” is touted as “the most lavish monument to the sea’s most famous disaster” as well as the “best storytelling museum in the world”. Staged on an eerily true replica of the doomed luxury liner, this popular attraction tenders groups on Show Me State holiday an absolutely immersive two-hour tour experience that lets them re-live the tragedy of 1912. Step through the iceberg, collect your boarding ticket bearing the name of an actual passenger and sail back in time to that darkest day as you imagine yourself anticipating a cruise to end all cruises, unaware of the deadly peril lying just ahead in the dark, frigid waters. Ascend the grand staircase, steer the ship, touch an “iceberg,” and practice your SOS signal; hear the stories of famous passengers who sailed on Titanic’s fateful maiden voyage and - at the end of your remarkable adventure - learn whether or not “your” passenger was amongst the few lucky survivors!
