Join the Adventure of CavesLIVE for FREE Online This March

Bridal Cave is a member of the National Caves Association, and along with them and in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service, we are very proud to be a part of an exciting new program - CavesLIVE! This educational program was put together in an effort to teach young students about the wonders that await them underground, but it is a wonderful opportunity for cave lovers of all ages to learn more about places much like our underground Lake of the Ozarks scenic attraction.

What is CavesLIVE? 
The U.S. Forest Service has been working on a wonderful program which they have titled "CavesLIVE" because it will give everyone a live look at the amazing things that can be found underground, as well as offer a live Q&A session with scientists that are experts on the subject. This "distance learning adventure" is being made possible so that people that do not have access to this experience in person can enjoy it too. 

It will also raise awareness about the beauty of caves hoping to encourage more people to check them out. They want to bring a new understanding of these resources that are seldom seen and considered mysterious and make them available to everyone.  

On March 14, 2018 at 11:00 am (Central Time) there will be a FREE, LIVE question and answer program broadcast from Luray Caverns in Virginia. It can be viewed on the CavesLIVE website at www.CavesLIVE.org, or through live feeds on their Facebook and YouTube channels. You can register for more information by visiting the website also.

What You Will Discover
This spectacular event will showcase the many things that are waiting to be discovered just below the surface. This includes specially adapted animals, mirror pools, sparkling crystals, domed caverns, and twisting tunnels. If you've had the chance to explore Bridal Cave, then you are familiar with these beautiful things. If you haven't, maybe this program will make you want to pay us a visit!

CavesLIVE will explore a wide variety of topics like geology, ecology, and the cultural importance of these wondrous places underground. They will be releasing a 45-minute video on their website in February entitled "CavesLIVE: Bringing Caves and Karst to Light." 

Everyone is invited to view this video to become more familiar with the subject. Then you can come up with a list of questions that you would like to ask the scientists during the CavesLIVE event in March. Their website is also an excellent source of information about all things caves and karst for students, teachers, and anyone that simply has an interest in the subject.

2018 FREE Wedding Vow Renewals - Coming Soon!

It's almost that romantic time of year again at our unique wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks. Valentine's Day is only a few weeks away, which means it is time for Bridal Cave's absolutely FREE wedding vow renewals! 


Say "I Do" Again... For Free! 
Every year near Valentine's Day, Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park are eager to host one of our most anticipated annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks - our wedding vow renewals inside the amazing stalactite adorned underground wedding chapel. On Sunday, February 11, 2018, from 9 am - 4 pm, we will set the scene for you and your spouse to renew your wedding vows, plus get some great lake area freebies as congratulations. This is possible in cooperation with our title sponsors, KRMS and Lake 94, plus some wonderful local vendors. 


Reservations are not needed. Just show up and we will make sure that you are on deck to be a part of the next ceremony. We'll provide the officiant, and all you have to do is bring the love (and your spouse, of course!) It doesn't matter if you've been married for 50 years or only a few days, all married couples are welcome!  

Awesome Goodie Bags
In addition to getting the chance to vow your love to your favorite person once again, you'll also receive a goodie bag filled with all kinds of wonderful treats, plus flowers and a photo to always remember the day by. Everyone that participates will get:

  • Fresh flowers for the bride from Janine's Flowers
  • A wedding portrait available for download by Lindsey Webster Photography
  • A goodie bag filled with lake area discounts
  • A LIFETIME pass to Bridal Cave!


Give a Little, Get a Lot!
New this year, we are striving to help the community while providing a wonderful activity in honor of love. We are asking every couple to bring a non-perishable food item that we will donate to the Lamb House of Camdenton. The Lamb House is a private, non-profit organization where families can feel free to go when an emergency arises and they need a little help to get through it, and 100% of everything donated goes directly to families in distress in our community.


Make It A Tradition
This doesn't have to be a one-time Valentine's Day event. Many couples from across the country travel to Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park each year to renew their vows inside the cave. If you can spare the time, make an entire week's vacation out of it! Vow renewals on Sunday, stay in one of the many wonderful vacation rentals in the area and enjoy their "off-season" rates, celebrate Valentine's Day on Wednesday, and then end the week with the annual Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl on Saturday, February 17, 2018. You could even come back and take a romantic stroll through America's most scenic cave tour one more time before you head home! 

Some happy couples from our 2017 Wedding Vow Renewals
Regardless of how you end up spending Valentine's Day this year, we hope that you are able to join us on the Sunday before for our Annual Wedding Vow Renewals at Bridal Cave. If you aren't married yet but planning a wedding in the near future, swing by and see how happy all of our married couples are, and take a look at the scenic Lake of the Ozarks attraction where you may want to say your very first "I do's!" Love is in the air again at Bridal Cave!

Don't Miss the 18th Annual Eagle Days at the Lake of the Ozarks

When you work at Bridal Cave and Thunder Mountain Park, or even if you visit our incredible park often, you develop an increased awareness and appreciation for all of the beautiful nature surrounding us. This includes the animals that we share the lake area with. This weekend offers a wonderful chance to learn more about the majestic eagle.

What is Eagle Days? 
Friday, January 5 is National Bird Day across the country, and over the weekend (January 6 & 7) the Lake of the Ozarks will celebrate one bird in particular during the 18th Annual Eagle Days. The original event, which started in 1999, attracted 651 participants. Last year that number grew to over 3,700 people joining in the fun! If you haven't had the chance to experience one of these celebrations, you really should make a point to check out this free nature event this weekend. 

An effort is made to feature both entertaining and educational programs showcasing the majestic eagle, as well as a few of its other feathered friends. Programs will be presented with live birds present, and everyone is encouraged to bring binoculars and cameras for the many viewing opportunities presented that day to see wild eagles. In addition to the programs being presented, there are many spots near Bagnell Dam where wild eagles can often be seen. There will also be vendor booths to browse, activities for the kids to enjoy, a photo contest, and a coloring contest for the kids which includes a special prize from us at Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park.

Coloring Contest
for Ages 12 and Younger
There are 2 different pictures for the Eagle Days coloring contest, one for ages 2-7 and another for ages 8-12. These can be downloaded by visiting the Eagle Days website. Once finished, you can drop them off at School of the Osage Heritage Elementary before or during the event, or they can be mailed to the address also found on the website. Each entry needs to include the child's name, age, address, phone number, and an email address so that contestants can be notified. 

One winner will be chosen from each age group on the basis of creativity following the event, and winners will be listed on the website. Those talented winners will be awarded a Bridal Cave Family Pass, which is good for 2 adults and 2 children! 


Photo Contest
for Ages 13 and Older
If you're too old to enter the coloring contest, get out your cameras out instead. The photo contest is open to amateur photographers, and entries can be made through January 7 at 3:00 pm at the event. Photos must have been taken within the last calendar year, and they will be judged on the basis of color, clarity, and creativity, capturing wild eagles in their natural environment. You can find a list of rules on the Eagle Days website. Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, and winners will be listed on the website.

Spot Those Eagles!
Now that you have all of the details, get out there and spot some of those glorious birds this weekend. The experts at Eagle Days can clue you in on the best places to look, and you'll get a chance to see a few up close during the programs at the event. You can use this new knowledge to keep an eye out for eagles when you visit our Lake of the Ozarks attraction. Eagle Days is a wonderful educational opportunity for all ages and the perfect place to enjoy some Family Fun... As It Should Be!

A Look Back at the Bridal Cave Blogs of 2017

New Year's Eve is a time to look back at the things that have happened over the past year, as well as a chance to dream about the wonderful things possible in the coming year. Here at Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park, we can keep track of a lot of things that happen at our scenic Lake of the Ozarks family attraction by reading back through the blogs that we've shared with you. 

Bridal Cave Lake of the Ozarks 2017 Year in Review

These blogs are a great way to keep up with current events at the park and learn interesting information about nature and the area we live in. In case you missed any of them, here are some highlights from our 2017 blogs. 

NEW at the Park in 2017
We strive to improve our year-round Lake of the Ozarks attraction in many different ways each year, adding to the joy and excitement for our visitors. This past year some really cool new things were added. In February we announced that, due to high demand, season passes for Bridal Cave tours would be available for just $5 more than a 1-trip ticket. March brought a brand new sluice to the park that is twice the size of our old one, allowing more people to pan for treasures at once! We even added some new sluice bag varieties, including a fossil bag and a family-size bag. 


May brought the announcement that on Saturday evenings between Memorial Day and Labor Day, you could make reservations to experience an in-the-dark Lantern Tour of Bridal Cave. If you missed them this year, you definitely need to plan a trip for this incredible experience in 2018. Last but not least, we hosted our very first annual Thunder Mountain Fall Festival every day in October, with special entertainment on the weekends. How in the world will we top all of that in 2018? (Just you wait and see!) 


Unique Park Happenings
A visit to Thunder Mountain Park is always full of interesting things to see and do, and every once in a while, we have some extra-special surprises take place. We wrote about the first-ever biological inventory of Bridal Cave back in November 2016, and in April of 2017, we were able to share with all of you that our very own tour guide, River Wise, won an award for that study! 

Last June brought world-famous violinist Kyle Dillingham to one of our underground weddings, and he made two incredible performances right inside the cave.



You got a peek in August at the yearly Beyond Mystery Lake Tour that we take our tour guides on, allowing them to experience a part of the cave most people never get the chance to see. In November we announced our biggest sale ever, due to the fact that our gift shop is getting a facelift over the winter because it's nearly 30 years old! (The sale is happening now through closing time on New Year's Eve.) Since we're about to hit the 70th anniversary of Bridal Cave, we also made an announcement last November about an upcoming Bridal Cave Tour Guide Reunion that will be taking place in April 2018.      


Weddings and Vow Renewals
We boast the most unique wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks, where you can get married outdoors in our lakeside pavilion or underground in the stalactite-adorned bridal chapel inside the cave. One of our March blogs shared the news that we were voted the Best Wedding Destination of Rural Missouri for 2017 by Rural Missouri Magazine!   

Our annual free Valentine's Day vow renewals were highlighted in February. 222 couples renewed their vows inside the cave in 2017. We'll be doing those again next February, so make plans now to join us next year!     


Nature Topics
The blog will often feature many topics about the wonders of nature in the park and all around us. In January we did a 2-part series on the many show caves in Missouri, aka the "Cave State." We covered topics last year such as ways you could help to "Keep America Beautiful," and special days like "Caves and Karst Day" and "International Rock Day," sharing interesting facts about each. Another natural phenomenon that happened in 2017 that we were thrilled to take part in was the Solar Eclipse. Cave tours were suspended for 2 hours so we could all gather outside and watch this incredible event. 


Lake Area History and Happenings
Throughout the year we like to share lake area events that you might enjoy, as well as information on other local businesses and attractions that offer a chance for family fun. Thanks to some unusual questions from visitors to the park, we also got a chance to do some digging into lake area history and make some pretty awesome discoveries. 

January featured an answered question about an old photo someone found and shared with us asking if we could figure out exactly where in the lake area it was taken. (Our general manager, Steve Thompson, immediately recognized it and knew how to find it!) Some historical research on Bridal Cave conducted by our staff to use in the new Lantern Tours brought an old book to our attention. It contains the Native American legend that Bridal Cave is named after, and we were able to purchase one of the only 3 known copies of this book! Also, in March our blog about the Original Opening of Bridal Cave explained why a boat dock was built to get to the cave before there were even any roads!  


WOW!!! Today we've only covered a few of the topics that Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park's weekly blogs have covered in the past year. You can use the links above to see those stories in full, or you can simply go to the blog page on our website and scroll through the entire year. 

There's always something interesting to talk about when it comes to our scenic Lake of the Ozarks attraction, and you can expect us to cover many more exciting topics in 2018. Happy New Year to everyone, and we expect to see you often for all types of Family Fun... As It Should Be!

Warm Winter Fun For The Holidays

Christmas weekend looks like it's going to be a cold one, but that doesn't mean you have to keep everyone locked away inside the house. Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park are open year-round so that you can enjoy nature, no matter what the weather! 


It's Comfy in the Cave
Even if it's a little chilly to be hanging around outside at the park, it's always a comfortable 60° inside Missouri's most scenic cave tour, allowing you to get out of the house and into nature without freezing! Shimmy out of that heavy winter coat once you're inside the cave and feel like it's a nice, cool, fall day again. 

Instead of getting stir-crazy stuck inside the house, bring the family here to hang out with us over the holidays. We are open daily from 9 am - 4 pm with Bridal Cave tours leaving every few minutes. The only exception will be that we will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day to celebrate the holidays at home. 


Check Out Cool Stuff That "Rocks"
Our Lake of the Ozarks gift shop is always warm and cozy inside and the windows keep the cold out but still let in an unbelievable view of the gorgeous Lake of the Ozarks. While you're inside, there are lots of unique and amazing rocks, minerals, and gemstones to see. You can even pick out a geode of your very own and have us crack it open right before your eyes to uncover the wonders waiting for you inside of it. 

We're still having our great big remodel sale in the gift shop so that we can clear out as much product as possible before our building gets a much-needed facelift. (Nearly 30 years of wear and tear from the multitude of visitors we get each year is tough on a building!) This is the biggest sale we've ever had, with discounts of up to 75% on some items! If you come in before Christmas, you can even pick up a gift or two for the rockhound in your life. 


Season passes to Bridal Cave are also a great gift that's full of a year's worth of family fun. For only an additional $5 on top of your one-time cave tour admission, you can upgrade to a pass that's good for one entire year from the date that it's purchased. Every time the weather isn't that enjoyable due to rain, snow, or uncomfortable temperatures, you can come and enjoy nature right here. 


You don't have to let the kids spend their entire holiday vacation indoors sitting in front of a screen. Instead, pack them all into the car and head on over to our year-round Lake of the Ozarks family attraction. It's always sure to be a memorable and exciting adventure full of Family Fun... As It Should Be!

Let Bridal Cave Recycle Your Used Christmas Trees

There is something very special about putting up a real tree for Christmas. The look, smell, and feel can be difficult to duplicate. Once the holidays are over you, can't just pack it away until next year like with an artificial tree. What you CAN do is bring it to the Lake of the Ozarks most scenic attraction and let us recycle it for you! 


Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle!
Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park will once again be accepting your old Christmas trees once you are done with them. Instead of throwing them away, bring them to us and we will repurpose them into a wonderful home for the many fish that live in the Lake of the Ozarks. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to teach young children about the importance of recycling and show them how they can easily help to improve the world around them. Recycling your old Christmas trees in this way keeps them from being discarded along our roadways, plus it offers much-needed cover for our lake area fish.

Fish of all sizes are attracted to the trees for a variety of reasons. They enjoy eating the aquatic insects that will make a home in the tree branches, and these sunken trees also offer small fish a great hiding place from the bigger fish. Knowing that fish will be congregating in the areas where the trees are placed, this makes it a great spot for you to catch fish too.  

Bring Us Your Trees! 
You are welcome to drop off your trees during our regular business hours, between 9 am - 4 pm. We are closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, but are otherwise open 7 days a week. Please make sure that all of the decorations are removed, and we are happy to take care of the rest.  

We will be placing them in the Niangua Arm of the Lake of the Ozarks. Steve Thompson, General Manager of the park, stated, "It seemed like an ideal opportunity to help recycle the old Christmas trees as we have the room on our parking facility to collect the discarded trees, are located right on the lake, and have the shoreline to place the beds.

A Special Thanks To You
Since you'll be doing your part to make our world a better place by bringing your tree to Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park to give to the fish, we'd like to give something back to you too! For every tree donated, you will receive a coupon good for 25% off admissions for the entire family anytime during the 2018 season. (That's only a couple of weeks away!) For more information, you can contact Steve Thompson at 573-346-2676 or email info@BridalCave.com


Enjoy those beautifully decorated Christmas trees throughout the holiday season, and when it's time to take them down, bring them to our family attraction at the Lake of the Ozarks. The fish will enjoy them from then on!
