New Year's Eve at the Lake of the Ozarks

2016 is coming to a close, which means it's time to celebrate a successful past year and welcome a promising new one. There are a lot of different celebrations going on in the lake area, both family friendly and for adults only. Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park gathered a few of them here for you today. If you'll be going out for New Year's Eve this year, one of these events may be just what you are looking for.  New Year's Eve Party at Get Air Trampoline Park This brand new addition to family fun at the Lake of the Ozarks is hosting a special New Year's Eve party from 10 pm - 1 am. "Jump" into the new year with 3 hours of trampoline action. Tickets also include two slices of pizza and can be pre-purchased for a discount. Quantities are limited, so get yours early.  Timber Falls Family Fun New Year's Eve The entire family can enjoy an evening full of good, clean, indoor waterpark fun.

Recycle Your Christmas Trees at Bridal Cave

Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park are performing a couple of good deeds with one simple action. Your favorite attraction at the Lake of the Ozarks will be taking your Christmas trees once you are done with them, helping you get rid of that large item after the holidays, and at the same time helping to improve fishing at the Lake of the Ozarks.  That glorious, festively decorated Christmas tree is the center of attention throughout your holiday season. Once you are done celebrating and the lights and decorations have been removed, you have the problem of figuring out what to do with the tree.  Most Missouri landfills do not accept Christmas trees.  From Decoration To Habitat We suggest giving it back to nature by recycling that used tree into a habitat for fish at the Lake of the Ozarks.  This is not only a great way to make sure the tree doesn't  go to waste, but it's also a wonderful lesson for children about recycling. Instead of simply becoming trash, this beau

2016 Christmas Fun at the Lake of the Ozarks

The weather has finally gotten cold enough to really feel like Christmas time around here. Our scenic mid-Missouri cave tour is always an excellent cold-weather activity, but there are a few additional fun things going on around the lake area that are only offered during the holidays. Here are few fun suggestions from Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park .  Christmas Light Displays Enchanted Village of Lights - Laurie Fairgrounds They claim to be one of the largest drive-through holiday light parks in mid-Missouri. It is free to drive through, but donations are welcome. They are open weeknights from 5-9 pm, and on weekends from 5-10 pm.   St. Patrick's Festival of Lights - Mother's Shrine Located in Laurie, this is the oldest light park in the area. It has grown each year since 1981 to now include 4,000 strings of lights, over 60 automatic timers, and more than 350 extension cords. It is open daily from 6-10 pm through January 1 and is free to the public. 

Bridal Cave Is Getting Ready For The 2017 Season

Your favorite Lake of the Ozarks attraction is still open this time of year, but since the crowds are a little smaller than they are mid-summer, we use this slower portion of the year to get the park ready for the 2017 season. Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park will feature some new and exciting things for our returning visitors next year.   New Backup Generator Bridal Cave recently had a brand new backup generator installed. Since our cave is a constant 60° and safe from outdoor elements, we tend to get extremely busy during storms and bad weather. Visitors can always enjoy a natural adventure without worrying about what the weather is doing outdoors.  Before, if the power went out, anyone in the middle of a cave tour was literally left in the dark! A cool experience, but very difficult to get around or enjoy the beauty of the cave. With our brand new backup generator (which has already come in handy this year and works perfectly) we are now even more of an all-weather att
