This was our first time visiting shepherd of the hill , and we went horseback riding at the stables here. It was a great ride! Lot's of going down hills and up some hills as well. The horses were beautiful!! Our guide was nice too. It cost $30 for an hour ride, which is normal priced for horseback riding. At the end of the ride, they even let me and my family feed them carrots we brought for the horses! Great place to horseback ride!

Its cute for what it is. A bunch of lights over 2.5 miles. It's slow based of how many cars are going through as well. We had fun laughing at all the different scenes that were displayed. Would I do this again.. probably not but at least I can say that I've experienced the lights in Branson. It could be nice for smaller children who enjoy christmas lights as well. A little pricey but we purchased discount tickets on reservebranson.com.
$35 for a car load of 5 people. It was a neat attraction but by the end it seemed like it was never going to end. Definitely older and didn't seem to have any updates in the last 10 years. At that point you see an alien Christmas display. The observation tower had a great view.
The tour is great if you have read the book. You see Old Matt's cabin and Inspiration Point, the guide knows all about the history associated with the book. We also did the zip line - so much fun, an easy glide from the top of Inspiration tower. The shooting gallery was lots of fun and not expensive. The play is also more meaningful if you have read the book. For those who have not it will be boring and amateurish. We loved it but you need to read the book before you come!
