BRANSON, Mo. – Herschend Enterprises is bringing yet another family adventure to the Ozarks this month with its off-road Pink Jeep Wrangler tours.
The off-road expeditions have been a huge hit over the years at both of Herschend’s Arizona locations as well as in Las Vegas and the Smoky Mountains. The excursions were founded in 1960, and come March 15, the Ozark Mountain region will be able to experience them as well.
The Jeep Wranglers are painted with a bright pink color that can be seen shining from afar on any trail, mountain or hillside. To ensure extra rider safety, the tours are led by guides who adhere to the Smith System of Driving, a driving method to properly anticipate dangerous situations.
In a statement on Herschend’s website, Pink Adventure Tours President John Fitzgibbons III said guests will enjoy a rugged climb to the top of one of Taney County’s highest points, while experiencing Missouri’s natural wonders.
“I am beyond excited for folks of all ages to get off the beaten path for a wild ride with PINK – Branson’s off-road adventure tours,” Fitzgibbons III said.
According to Herschend Enterprises, for the first time in over 50 years, modern-day explorers will be able to go on an exclusive trail that scales the heights of Baird Mountain, named after local legend “Old Man” Baird.
Tours will be offered throughout the day and into the sunset hours for visitors to “experience nature’s picturesque pink colors first-hand,” according to the press release.
The Downtown to Mountaintop option will take riders through the Historic Downtown Branson District before checking out the scenic Lake Taneycomo. The Lakes and Landmarks option passes through the Ozark valleys and heads for the shoreline of Table Rock Lake. Sunset tours will be offered for both options as well.
“We want to welcome Pink Adventure Tours to the Branson region,” said Jason Outman, president/CEO of Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and CVB. “Visitors will enjoy the new experiences that the excursions offer along with so many other great family attractions and outdoor adventures.”
The Branson Pink Adventure Tour Hub will be located at 3310 76 Country Blvd., Suite D, Branson, Missouri. The site is still under construction but will be open shortly. Those interested in more information or going on a tour can purchase tickets in advance on the company’s website.
