10:00 this morning,  I have not read anywhere about the newscast being streamed.  Guess we will wait until it is posted...... ::)

It's been almost an hour and I still can't find any information on this.  :(

It's called Fritz's Adventure. Multi Story Interactive Adventure. According to the ever reliable Twitter!

^Thanks for giving me the name. That led me to an article about the project. Here is the article:
http://www.joplinglobe.com/news/new-adventure-park-to-lead-development-along-branson-s-highway/article_683c301a-6c40-11e5-81dc-eb78223d1eab.html

And here is a concept art picture:

Seems like a pretty cool concept. I think it has potential to do great things on that part of the strip. It also looks modern and isn't a complete eyesore like so many Branson attractions on the strip. This is a great first step to the Highway 76 redevelopment in my opinion.

Agree. Agree. I wonder if it has any relation to the Fritz's Railroad Restaurants that are popular in Kansas City?

Sounds like the adventure mountain that Dollywood removed.  I wish it were something more exciting than that.

This is probably the most excited I have been about anything in Branson for 20 years. Something new and original. Not just another variety show. I love climbing walls even at my age (57) and this looks like a winner.

It seems to have a bit of inspiration from the City Museum in St.L.

This something that could have easily been an attraction at a revisioned CC.

I guess I am being a kill joy because it is not personally usable due to a medical issue.  I guess Branson is getting
younger and I am going the opposite way.

The wording of the press release had me hoping for something a little more innovative, but this makes sense and should be successful. I don't think obstacle/rope courses are a big deal, and putting it indoors with a new system isn't all that impressive, but a lot of people will have fun with it. I don't get where the tube slides come in though... seems weird to have a water attraction in there with all the climbing. People with kids will want to do one or the other.

Nice article...

I have yet to see any kind of admission price, that will be interesting...

I am intriqued by the statement  "Fritzís Adventure is one of several new projects in the works in conjunction with the Spirit of 76 project". ??

Time will tell.
