Summer fun on the water is kicked up Memorial Weekend, as the Showboat Branson Belle launches the all-new noon show Country On The Lake and White Water opens the new half-million dollar kids’ area Coconut Cove. Both open Saturday, May 27, in Branson.
Country On The Lake, presented on most noon and Sunday cruises, is designed as a “Party on the Lake” concert cruise , featuring multi-talented rising country stars performing #1 hits from yesterday’s classic rock to country favorites of today, backed by a live band. The show includes tributes to country stars of the ’90s with songs by stars such as Garth Brooks, Miranda Lambert, the Zac Brown Band and Kenny Chesney, plus many of classic rock’s most memorable songs.
Produced by Nashville veteran show producer Matt Davenport, the show features six singer/dancers and top musicians. “This is like no other show ever featured on the Showboat, and the ‘party on the lake’ experience is carried throughout, with live music on the top deck during the cruise time,” said Operations Director Nick Guevel.
An all-new menu for Country On The Lake features barbecue pork prepared by the pit master at Silver Dollar City and delivered every morning after overnight slow-cook, plus desserts prepared by Silver Dollar City bakers.
Also featured on the Showboat is the popular evening show Celebrate! and Princess & Pirate themed cruises for kids on Sundays. Cruise times and information: 800-775-BOAT(2628) or www.showboatbransonbelle.com.
Branson’s White Water adds more splash-and-slide fun for small adventurers with a new interactive kids’ play area, opening May 27. The new half-million dollar Coconut Cove adds five slides, four water blasters, “bubbler” fountains, hose jets, tipping buckets and more, all created for interactive play. Designed to be where the White Water adventure begins for kids who love to play in the water, the new area opens when the 13-acre water park launches its season, which runs May 27 – September 4.
White Water is also known for its big rides, big slides and big thrills, including the mega-thrill slide KaPau Plummet. The park features more than a dozen rides and attractions and two million gallons of water fun. White Water kids’ tickets are just $20 all season.
