It's the End of Season Rock Closeout Sale!

Image
Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park's general manager, Steve Thompson, will soon be traveling to Orlando to check out the brand new rocks, gemstones, and minerals for us to sell next year. It's great for Steve because he is like a kid in a candy store sorting through all of those gorgeous varieties of rocks. It's great you too, because we need to make room for the new inventory, so many of our current selections are on sale!


The wonderful Lake of the Ozarks gift shop located at Bridal Cave has an incredible selection of the most unique and fascinating gemstones. Each year, Steve makes the trip to Orlando to meet with our importers. There, he hand selects only the best rocks from around the world to bring back to our gift shop for next season.



Our Closeout Sale Specials
Before we refill the gift shop with all of Steve's brand new finds, we are having a BIG closeout sale on many of our unique specimens. Supplies are limited, and once they're gone.. they are gone! We…

Predict The New President With Our Annual "Underground Opinion Poll"

Image
The presidential election is on almost everyone's minds right now. It's an important decision for the American people, and our Lake of the Ozarks scenic attraction is getting in on the action by holding our own opinion poll.



In 1960, former Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park manager Eddie Miller began what has now become a tradition for us. The "Underground Opinion Poll" is our unofficial way to predict the outcome of the Presidential election.

On each and every tour of Bridal cave, guests are asked to vote for the candidate of their choice by using their ticket stub as a ballot. One big difference with our poll is that there is no age limit. If the kids want to take part in this example of democracy, they are more than welcome to join in the fun.


We will tally the votes on three different occasions: September 30, October 15, and a final count will take place on November 1 before the real November 8 presidential election. While our numbers aren't the ones that …

It's Time for the 10th Annual Lake of the Ozarks Bikefest

Image
We've got another annual event to talk about this week, and it's a big one! Not only in terms of attendance, but also because of the large area that it covers. The 10th Annual Lake of the Ozarks Bikefest is descending upon the lake area this week, September 15-18, 2016. There are tons of scenic Lake of the Ozarks attractions to get to by land, and the trip there is every bit as beautiful as the destination. 


Ride to Bridal Cave
Bridal Cave happens to be one of those spectacular destinations. It's a fantastic place to take a break during one of your bike rides on the Camdenton side of Bikefest. A trip through the cave will cool you off if it happens to be a hot day, and it will keep you dry if a few rain showers try to invade part of the weekend. Our covered lakeside pavilion is a perfect place to stop for a picnic, and Thunder Mountain Park has trails for you to stretch your legs on before getting back on the road.

Bikefest kicks off on the historic Bag…
