Ride the Ducks in Branson, Missouri will open for the 2010 season tomorrow, March 6. All new for the 2010 season are six new themed adventures that give visitors new reasons to ride the ducks!

The new themed adventures include:

Ducks N’Bugs: March 6-April 17
Climb aboard Branson’s famous land and water adventure and see what everyone’s buzzing about. We’ve packed the adventure with bugs of all sorts for learning and laughing. Check out our Kid Splash Room with bugs to examine under a magnifying glass and real live ants at work. See the Ozarks as your Captain shares his buggy knowledge, experience Branson’s only Splashdown as you make a beeline for the lake and then drive if you want. Butterflies, ladybugs and more will be showcased in a special exhibit area as your family experiences Quack-tastic fun with a ducks favorite treat – bugs.

Giddy Up Duck!: April 24-May 31
Cowboy up and Splashdown as you see the Ozarks western style. Instead of a horse, your trusty mount for this adventure is a duck that travels on land and bucks right into the lake where you can take the reins and drive if you want. Pin on a sheriff’s star, try your hand at a trick rope and discover cowboy memorabilia in our special exhibit area. As always, your Captain will be full of tall tales and have you quacking Happy Trails as you experience the ride of a lifetime. Hang onto your hat.

Splash’s Family Luau: June 12-September 6Its summertime and what’s more fun than a family luau duck-style. Grab your shades, throw on a lei and kick back as you see the Ozarks on our famous land and water adventure. Don’t let the grass skirt foul you – your Captain is US Coast Guard licensed and ready for you to hula in the seats. You’ll Splashdown with a dip in the lake and you can drive if you want. It’s Quack-tastic fun for the whole family. Play in the sand, catch bubbles, make a lei and create lifetime memories with Splash’s Family Luau.

Salute to Veterans: September 18-October 31Celebrate the red, white and blue with our star-spangled land and water adventure as we salute America’s amazing service men and women. See the Ozarks riding an amphibious vehicle based on the famous WWII DUKW design. Quack along to patriotic music and see historic military vehicles as your US Coast Guard licensed Captain shares stories of the brave men who boarded these vehicles in WWII to serve the USA and the women, like Rosie the Riveter, who helped build them. An amphibian travels on land and water and you’ll experience that excitement as you head right into the lake for a Splashdown. You can even drive if you want as we salute America’s veterans.

Ducks Go Boo: October 1-October 31
Hop on a duck for a fun-filled Ozarks adventure full of screams and squeals. Expect tricks from your Captain as we treat you to a trip through our own haunted forest. Watch out for ghosts, bats, spiders and other creepy creatures of the night. Your family will have a howling good time as we spin ghost stories on this old-fashioned duck-style hayride. Decorate your own pumpkin or Trick-or-Treat bag in our Kid Splash Room and watch out for things that go boo. It’s spooktacular.

Holiday Lights…Duck Style: November 5-December 12Nothing gets you ready for the holidays like a sleigh ride duck-style. We’ve strung the lights and hung the mistletoe for a sparkling light filled adventure you won’t want to miss. Sing and quack along with your Captain as you listen to Christmas favorites and hear stories of Ozarks Christmas traditions. Bundle up as we head through our own lighted forest of twinkling snowflakes, festive candy canes and other holiday favorites. Create a Christmas ornament in our Kid Splash Room as your family creates quack-tastic Christmas memories – you might even sneak a peek at Santa Claus.
