Bridal Cave's "Bright" Future - Our New LED Lighting

Image
The maintenance department at Thunder Mountain Park has been hard at work completing a year-long project to enhance your view of one of America's most scenic cave tours. Bridal Cave is now the first major show cave in the Midwest to be lit entirely by LED lighting.

Finding the right lights.The first step in this major renovation was to test a variety of LED bulbs to find the ones that showed the cave in the best possible light. They had to be tested for physical size, lumens, and most importantly, color temperature. LED's are known for their harsh white light, so the correct temperature of the bulb became a high priority. 

Dozens of bulbs went through our testing process, and the winner was the 2700 degree LED bulb. These highlight the cave's already vibrant colors in the most flattering way.

Our 2016 Valentine's Day Vow Renewal Event was a Success!

The ice, snow, and subfreezing temperatures of Valentine's Day 2016 were melted away by the love of 240 couples renewing their wedding vows at Bridal Cave.  This extremely popular annual event at the Lake of the Ozarks was successful again this year.  In addition to the vow renewals, two couples said "I do" for the first time in our unique wedding chapel after the renewal event.  



 With the help of the Camden County Road Crew and Bridal Cave's awesome staff, all of the Thunder Mountain Roads were cleared and ready for visitors by the promised time of 9:00 am.  The wintry weather kept a lot of people at home early in the day, but they definitely made their way to us before we stopped at 4:00 pm.
